Justice League Trailer Breakdown


Justice-League-Movie-Costumes-Official

Let me tell you a story. After failure of Batman v Superman DC exes sat down with Zack Snyder. They asked Snyder to analyze why their movies get so much bashing while Marvel keeps winning. The same MARVEL THAT ONCE HAD A PLATHORA OF MEDIOCRE CHARACTERS AND THEIR ONLY TOP PERFORMING CHARACTER WAS SPIDER-MAN.

Snyder thinks, he tells the execs – ‘I think it’s the jokes,’

‘Marvel has a lot of jokes in the movies,’ Snyder continues, ‘I think we should add more jokes and shoot a major chunk of the movie during the daytime.’

And hence we got Justice League.

DC is desperate. The early trailer at SDCC proves that the company is trying to gain the trust of the fans one more time. Only this time they have added the element of humor and jokes in their trailer. Finally they have joined Marvel in the line of making funny trailers, on which the fans used to take pride in one calling ‘our movies are dark and serious’ and ‘we don’t make funny movies like Marvel does.’ They can proudly join the bandwagon of DC loves fun and humor.

My only problem is that these jokes are on the level of Green Lantern.

Despite all the hate, I have learned to hold my horses. There are parts of the trailer that made me feel intrigued and like every DC movie that has disappointed me in the past, I am going to watch this movie as well.

Here is my analysis for the trailer

Meet Aquakhal

Aquaman Justice League

Probably the worst addition to the team, Jason Mamoa’s casting was happened in a time when DC was ruled only and only by Zack Snyder. He thought Mamoa will be as dark and brooding character like every character in DC universe. Only then time changed, now he has to be a fun character and it simply doesn’t come out. He looks out of place Old Spice model. Everytime he shows up in the trailer is a cringeworthy moment, but I’ll talk about the cringiest moment later.

A Motherbox

Darksied Mother Box

We move to another scene where we see an ancient king buying a secret. Somehow I hope that he is King Arthur and this leads to a Justice League Dark movie. He and his army men bury something deep underground that looks like a mother box. Either this is the same mother box that gave Cyborg his exoskeleton or it is one of the hidden one that Steppenwolf is seeking on the Earth.

Wonder Woman in action

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot DC movie trailer

If Aquaman is the worst part of the trailer than Wonder Woman is the best. Gal Gadot is the Wonder Woman personified, whether she is in her costumer or not. In the trailer she looks fierce and battle ready. She stares at a foe out of focus from the scene as Diana emerges from behind the shield.

An Alcoholic Aquaman

Alcoholic Aquaman Khal Drogo

If he was not forcibly trying to be dark and brooding, he is also a drinker. We will get to see some tragic backstory may be in a very Snyder style.

Meet Cyborg

Ray Fisher Cyborg

I have never seen Ray Fisher act. We get to see his character before he met with that horrific accident. Here Victor Stone is the high school football player studying at Gotham University. His collage’s name can be seen on both his jacket and in the background. This scene may be a flashback as we have already met a fully transformed Cybog in Batman v Superman.

Meet Barry Allen

Barry Allen

We get to see the best part of the trailer. We meet Barry Allen, Erza Miller is Barry Allen defined on the screen. A confused, one liner cracking superhero who has his own issues. He needs friends.

Now this is the part that worries me. While the scene looks a lot similar to Tony Stark recruiting Peter Parker in Civil War, the jokes are simply out of place. A dialogue sounds forced and the ‘I need friends’ part creates a very Green Lantern’esque nostalgia in my mind. I hope his dialogues are better than this.

Otherwise Erza Miller is the Barry Allen personified, with a sequence he wins the whole trailer.

Justice Four in Action

Finally we meet the first four of Justice League. Cyborg’s suit looks unfinished while I am still wondering why Barry has an armor suit. They head into an underground tunnel to fight something unknown. Aquaman is not here, he’ll be saved for the final battle to emerge has the king and tell everyone, ‘hey look I am here to help you peasants.’

I am more excited to see Superman with a ponytail. I hope they don’t spoil that in the trailers.

Aquaman talks to fish

Just what I feared, there are a lot of worries regarding Aquaman already. I hope they don’t make him a joke in the team. Right now he sounds like a character who his forcibly trying to be serious but his teammates don’t take him seriously.

I can just hope that Aquaman’s baddassery is shown to the audience and we get to see Jason Mamoa wearing his golden armor and in blonde hair.

    Is the person who wrote this review a Marvel fan? Because what I saw in this review is a seriously biased opinion. You should really watch the trailer again. And again.
