‘Justice League’ Cinematographer Reveals One Of His Favorite Shots

Zack Snyder Justice League

Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner too to Instagram and posted what he calls one of his favorite shots from the film. The shot itself is of Batman standing atop a skeletal statue, his stance imposing and powerful as he stares downward and directly at the camera, dark storm clouds surrounding him like a cloak.

No doubt the most fun day I ever had shooting and one of my favourite shots #justiceleague #batman #setlife #dc #cinematography

You can check out the image below. Wagner has good taste because it is, indeed, a great shot.


The image itself sets the tone for Batman’s characterization in Zack Snyder’s DCEU films so far. In his first appearance in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman/Bruce Wayne is seen as tired, older, having witnessed even more darkness in his years as the caped crusader. He’ll probably continue to be brooding in Justice League as well, but perhaps the rest of the team will provide some lightness.

“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.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielson as Queen Hippolyta, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

Justice League is in theaters November 17, 2017.
