When it comes to a group of heroes such as the Justice League, there is no denying the team’s colorful and idiosyncratic backgrounds. This, of course, applies not only to the characters in the film but also in regards to the actors portraying them.
In an interview with Geek Magazine, the man behind the ‘Scarlet Speedster’ himself, Ezra Miller enthusiastically discusses the unique bond that transpired amongst him and his Justice League co-stars during the making of the film:
“I love this gang of weirdos. We’re all very different humans and we really love each other through and through. I personally always feel that the goodness of what we create interpersonally on a set flows into the quantum fabric of the film. I completely trust in this very esoteric understanding.”
The actor continues to divulge that the cast has become somewhat of a proverbial motley crew as the chemistry and humorous banter between the characters helped strengthen the team’s relationship both on and off screen:
“I would earnestly say it was a raucous monkey barrel of creativity. A veritable artistic crockpot a-sizzle with the primordial ooze from which our vertebrate film shall ultimately rise. Rest assured, every day of this magnificent endeavor, the retired airplane hangers of Leaversden Studios shook with gleeful laughter and guttural war cries as devout humans poured themselves into this endlessly fascinating work.”
Given Miller’s very Flash-like gusto towards the production of the film, it will be interesting to see how these actors who come from varied walks of life convey their differences into the larger than life superheroes in which they portray on the big screen.
The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017

5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel
Superman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.
Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.
