What We Learned From the Justice League Trailer
In case you live inside a box or maybe under a rock, the new Justice League trailer came out today. As with any trailer, there is a lot to unpack. These are just our first takes on the trailer and will be watching it a lot more for those juicy easter eggs!
Without further adieu here are the 7 things we learned from the Justice League trailer.
There is Humor in the DCEU
There are a few quips in the new trailer, one of which has Barry asking Bruce “What are your superpowers again?”. Of course, Bruce replies with “I’m rich”. While this is nice to see, we can only hope that not all of the humor is in the trailers. While they don’t need to go to Marvel levels of humor, a laugh here and there does a lot.
Batman Has Some New Toys
What would Batman be without some high tech gadgets and toys!? We get to see the vehicle pictured above, looks like a vehicle that can climb up walls, pretty useful. Also earlier in the trailer, he uses some sort of explosive on what looks to be a Parademon. Without a doubt, we will get to see even more Bat Toys in the full movie, but the peaks here are nice.
Wonder Woman is Strong
While this should come as a surprise to no one, it is nice to see Wonder Woman showing off her strength. One particular moment is pictured above, with Wonder Woman hitting her shield and causing what looks like a giant bomb going off. While this could be some editing magic, Wonder Woman still looks to have the appropriate power levels here.
Aquaman Could Steal the Show
I don’t think anyone will be making fun of this Aquaman anytime soon. They definitely turned up the testosterone on him here. Not to mention he’s got jokes as well, picking on poor Batman. Match that with the awesome fight scenes we see earlier in the trailer, he is plain bada**. Plus we hopefully will get to see more of Mera and his relationship throughout the movie.
For most of the Justice League, this will be their proper introduction to the DCEU. There are a few shots in this trailer that show what looks to be origin stories for Cyborg (pictured above), Barry, and Arthur. While this is needed, I hope this isn’t the BvS treatment, jamming too much into one movie.
While we knew there was going to be Jim Gordon, Mera, and Harry Allen. This is our real first peek into those characters on screen. With Mera appearing in Atlantis and Henry still appearing to be in jail. It will be interesting to see how much we see of these characters in the full release.
Still No Superman
Ever since *SPOILER* the death of Superman in BvS DCEU has been pretty quiet on his return. Superman is confirmed to be in this movie, with Henry Cavil teasing the black outfit on social media. However, we haven’t heard or seen anything official yet. All we get in this trailer is Lois looking up to the sky, perhaps spotting Superman?
