We’re now just a little over a month away from the release of the DC Comics superhero extravaganza Justice League, and both excitement and nervousness are growing. In regards to excitement, it’s the first opportunity ever see see a live action team up of the iconic superheroes Wonder Woman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Superman — which on the surface sounds cool AF. But then the nervousness kicks in as fans wonder if they’re going to get something closer to this past summer’s hit Wonder Woman, or the dark and gloomy Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which was released last year.
Well, if you’re going to base it on the most recent trailer, released during this year’s New York Comic-Con, it looks like it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun. We’re not sure if that’s because Joss Whedon (director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) stepped in for about three months worth of reshoots when original director Zack Snyder needed to drop out to deal over a family crisis, but whatever the reason it looks like it’s going to kick some serious ass.
In the new issue of Geek magazine (which is a Wal-Mart exclusive publication), Gal Gadot, who returns in the role of Wonder Woman, comments, “The goal of the team is intense — they have to save the world, after all — but the humor that comes into it from all of these characters trying to work together, some of them with more experience, some with essentially none, results in a lot of laughter and playful banter that I believe audiences will really enjoy.”
In that same issue, Ben Affleck (returning as Batman) points out that Justice League is a big change tonally from both Man of Steel (2013) and Batman V Superman, which he says is because of the personalities of the heroes involved and the fact that “these different characters are coming together and it gives you a chance to infuse a lot of humor into the scenes. For Bruce Wayne, he’s having to open up and play well with others, because he knows he needs them so while he doesn’t lose sight of how serious the threat is, he’s humanized by the Flash’s earnestness, Diana’s warmth, even Aquaman’s needling.”
Justice League reaches theaters on November 17th.
