Justice League reshoots

Justice League is now playing in theaters everywhere and if you went into the film hoping to see all of the flashy stuff on display in the multiple trailers, you might’ve been disappointed. There are numerous moments from the previews that aren’t in the final film, which, when combined with talk of the extensive reshoots that happened after Zack Snyder left and Joss Whedon took over, implies there’s a drastically version of the film floating around out there. In the wake of the film’s release, even more details about Justice League reshoots have surfaced.

Justice League Spoiler Review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: the superhero team-up extravaganza Justice League.)

You can’t save the world alone, and saving the DCEU might be even more of a challenge. After Warner Bros. and DC finally found their footing with Wonder Woman, the superhero series trips over its own cape with the cacophonous Justice League. What should be a moment of triumph for the series – the long-awaited team-up of their signature heroes – instead feels like an uncomfortable obligation. It’s like a weekend visit to grandma – you don’t want to do it, there’s other things you’d really like to be doing, but you figure you make the effort because she’ll be gone soon.

As of this writing, Justice League is underperforming even more than anyone expected. The film failed to break the coveted $100 million domestic weekend opening gross, which will no doubt lead to a string of think-pieces pondering, “What went wrong with the DCEU?” With all this in mind, it almost feels cruel to hammer Justice League more. But this is the task at hand. I come not to praise Justice League, nor do I come to bury it. Instead, I want to try to get to the heart of what makes it tick. This is a garish, visually hideous work of pop art, yet I firmly believe it has its heart in the right place: it wants to tell a fun, entertaining story about a group of people coming together to solve a huge problem, and growing as they do so. But what it wants to do, and what it actually does are two very different things. This Justice League spoiler review will highlight what works best in the film, and what doesn’t work at all.

Spoilers follow, obviously.

Justice League Featurette

We’re just a few days away from Justice League hitting theaters, bringing the DC Comics superhero team altogether on the big screen for the first time ever. We’ve seen plenty of footage in the trailers that have been released over the past year and a half, and now Warner Bros. Pictures is in the final stretch of their marketing push to show off even more from the blockbuster flick.

A new Justice League featurette goes behind the scenes of the movie showing off Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher having a good time between takes. Plus, there’s a new clip showing off more of the conversation that happens between Bruce Wayne and Arthur Curry when the billionaire vigilante goes searching for metahumans to help defend Earth against an impending threat.

Justice League tv spot

If you thought the previous DCEU films were too dark, you’re in luck: there’s a new goofy Justice League TV spot that’s brimming with silliness! Ezra Miller‘s Flash is front and center here, and somehow Batman’s voice has gotten even worse. This is a truly strange spot, and if Justice League itself turns out to be this strange, it will certainly be the best DCEU film to date. Watch the Justice League TV spot below.

justice league cyborg promo

The countdown to Justice League continues, with Warner Bros. rolling out the promotional campaign for each of its members week-by-week. A wise move considering the fact that we’ll be meeting two-thirds of the superhero team for the first time in this film. This week is all about Wonder Woman and Cyborg.

We know all about Wonder Woman of course, so let’s focus on Cyborg, whose story arc is largely revealed in the brief promo centered on the technopathic hero, as well as new behind-the-scenes stills released by Warner Bros. But there might also be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it spoiler hidden in the Cyborg first look.

The closer we get to the premiere of Justice League, the lighter the tone of its trailers seem to be. Case-in-point: the Flash’s goofy grin in the newest Justice League TV spot.

Like yesterday’s featurette, the new Justice League clip emphasizes the team’s chemistry, as well as their individual prowesses as superheroes (after all, they each have their own upcoming solo movies). They worked hard on those logos, folks.

justice league featurette

A troubled production and an uneven final trailer can’t stop the actors from just having plain fun in Justice League.

The cast are all grins in this “first look” (which is weird because it’s not really a first look) at the Warner Bros. superhero team-up film, which boasts a mood a hundred times more ebullient than most of the DC films have been thus far. Cobbled together from a group interview with stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher, as well as what looks like set interviews and sit-downs, the Justice League featurette explores how these super friends came to be.

justice league trailer

Someday, Justice League‘s long and complicated journey to the big screen will make for a compelling tell-all book. Until then, we can only sit here with one question on the tip of our tongues: will Warner Bros.’ DC superhero team-up movie be any good? While you never can tell with marketing, the new Justice League trailer is here for us to poke at, observe, and dissect. So let’s take a look.

Justice League - Ray Fisher as Cyborg

New body parts aren’t the only things Cyborg is getting in Justice League.

The cybernetically enhanced member of the team will reportedly be getting a lighter tone in the Justice League reshoots that Joss Whedon is overseeing after director Zack Snyder left due to a family tragedy. Cyborg’s tone readjustment is in line with Warner Bros.’ push to for more “fun” and optimistic DC Extended Universe movies after the critical and commercial success of Wonder Woman.

Justice League

During Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Pictures brought some superhero action into Hall H with a brand new trailer for Justice League, introducing the world to the villain called Steppenwolf, who both walks tall and carries a big stick, or rather an axe that appears to have the power to lay waste to the world.

As the new Justice League poster points out, you can’t save the world alone, and we certainly can’t let the new trailer go by without taking a cue from Aquaman and making a deep dive into what this footage tells us about the first big screen union of these DC Comics superheroes. So come with us as we deliver a Justice League trailer breakdown. Read More »
