Warner Brothers has done something no one would have predicted a year ago – released to good-to-great superheroes inside a calendar year. (No, they’re nowhere near Marvel consistently, but they’re moving in the right direction.)
Justice League maintains the portentous/brutalist look that director Zack Snyder set for the DCEU, but following the few faint glimmerings of wit in Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman – and the wit, charm and adventure of Wonder Woman – the film maintains the levels of danger and conflict from earlier DCEU films while making a point of balancing its darkness with genuine fun.
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.
Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.
The first trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was ponderous, portentous and pretentious. It really worried me. Then the succeeding trailers told us that we were getting Lex Luthor and Doomsday in the same movie – on top of adding the introduction of Wonder Woman. That seemed like an awful lot of apples to put in one basket – but there’s actually more than that in the movie.
If you didn’t watch The CW’s special on bringing the Justice League Universe to film, you missed its exclusive first look at footage from the Wonder Woman movie.
Now that footage is online and we have it just after the jump. Unless you’re as big a fanboy as Kevin Smith, feel free to ignore his overly enthusiastic blurtations. Wonder Woman is slated to premiere in 2017.
After someone in Mexico posted a pirated copy of the Batman v Superman trailer, DC and Zack Snyder responded by making it available online in its full, in focus, deeply dark entirety. Check it out after the jump.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens wide – very wide – on May 25, 2016.
