Justice League is almost upon us, and many fans and general audiences are wondering if the film will even be good. Sure, Wonder Woman surprised many with its quality, so will Warner Bros. capture lightning in a bottle twice?
As for the tone of the film, what Justice League looks like has drastically changed with each teaser and trailer. At the moment, we’re expecting big action and the usual Snyder-slow-mo, but there’s a lot of fun moments from The Flash and Alfred being teased.
In a recent interview for Empire magazine’s cover issue on the film, Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman/Diana Prince) has talked about what kind of tone the whole film is going for, especially in comparison to the rest of the DC movies. Her quote below states that:
Justice League is not a dark or heavy movie. It doesn’t have the weight that Batman v Superman had.
Fans of Batman v Superman may be a little disappointed to know that Justice League won’t be so grand and epic like that movie, but many normal audiences might be relieved to know that the film will be more like Wonder Woman in a more inspiring, uplifting tone. Or so we hope. Whatever Justice League will be, it will surely be talked about and discussed for months, even years afterward.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gl Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J.K. Simmons. Here’s the official synopsis:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is in cinemas November 17.
5 Things The ‘Nightwing’ Movie Needs To Get Right
Of all the surprising moves made by DC, announcing a solo Nightwing film was perhaps the most surprising. Considering Batman hasn’t even started filming his solo movie yet, it seemed a bit premature. Then of course came the announcement of the Batgirl movie, and it became clear that DC is hedging its bets in favor of Batman’s surrogate family. While it may have been more favorable to wait until the release of The Batman to consider spinning off the sidekicks, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to with these announcements, but a lot to be apprehensive about too.
Between Batgirl and Nightwing, the Barbara Gordon film is probably the safer bet for an immediately successful solo entry, particularly with Joss Whedon directing and writing. Dick Grayson has a lot more to prove. After all, he’s still considered by general audiences to be simply Robin. They might know that Dick eventually becomes Nightwing, but to most, this just means a change in costume and attitude, but a character who still essentially lives in Batman’s shadow.
This couldnt be further from the truth. In fact, a huge part of Nightwing’s appeal is just how different he is from Batman. Dick has his own way of operating, his own set of values, his own moral code, and his own outlook on life that’s totally different from Bruce Wayne’s. Nightwing represents one of the most optimistic voices in heroism, and when he’s done right, his comic book adventures are a breath of fresh air. There’s a lot of great stuff director Chris Mckay can pull from the Nightwing comics to ensure the movie lives and breathes that authentic Dick Grayson vibe.
