We have a little over a year until DC Studios and WB puts out the Justice League Movie, but that hasn’t stopped the almighty machine from trying to build a reputation for it already in the public. After the Batman v. Superman debacle where the fans were split and the critics hated it, DC and Warner are trying to make sure the same does not happen to the rest of their DCU. With the rumor mill swirling about DC did hand us this brief snippet of what we will be looking at when it hits theaters.
“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.”
This description by itself already lightens the mood up a bit with the description. This may very well be what DC/WB have been trying to do by shaking up the order of power a bit and letting Geoff Johns lend more of himself and his ideas and passion for these flicks. And above this little article is the newly released Justice League logo for the flick.
Here’s hoping good things come DC’s way in the next few years!
Well yesterday was a pretty good day for comic book fandom as a whole, we have learned that Oscar Award winning Director/Actor/Man-Crush Ben “I’m Batman” Affleck is definitely going to do a solo-Batman film. There had been inklings of speak about such a thing occurring, but trusting those rumors is like trusting…well anything said on the internet that hasn’t bee directly quoted or refuted by the companies and people involved.
This comes as good news during a pretty decent run by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice at trying to garner 1 Billion Dollars world wide, and especially after the bashing by critics that very same movie took. It looks as if DC/Warner has itself a fairly good amount of confidence going into all of these movies.
Then there is the Benedict Cumberbatch news, which honestly isn’t so much news as it is a really amazing trailer that will now allow magic into the Marvel Universe. I have been waiting for this bit for a while, simply because with the Netflix shows you Have Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil as street level heroes, but then there is Iron Fist who is also pretty street level, but has a mystic background as well. It will be interesting to see how they wholly incorporate the magic without it becoming all encompassing, or too hokey.
If you haven’t seen said awesome magic trailer check it out below.
I hope you guys enjoy the little bit o’ news that I can throw your way. I’ve been rolling as press for well over 12 years now, but this is my first time venturing on my own, so read, comment, enjoy. Never hate though, never hate.
