*The above shot is a first look at the Batmobile in 2017's Justice League.
What did we learn on the set of Justice League? Here's a quick breakdown: Set a few months after BvS, Steppenwolf, Parademons and Apokoliptian forces are the main foes, and Mother Boxes play an important role. The movie has a lighter tone, and even has a sense of humor. This is a “complete” movie, and not just a part one. Superman’s whereabouts or resurrection are being kept under wraps. This is a more wry, but less angry Batman. Ezra Miller’s Flash is a breath of fresh air and will be a breakout. Willem Dafoe is playing Atlantean advisor Vulko. Is that Tormund from Game of Thrones as an Atlantean king?
The bat-signal shines from the rooftop and pierces the darkness on yet another rainy Gotham City night. Aside from the Grim Reaper-esque gargoyles gazing down from their perch on a nearby building, only one man is present, standing watch. But Commissioner Gordon is not alone for long. He is joined by a hero, Batman, and his newfound cohorts The Flash, Wonder Woman and then Cyborg – the charter members of the Justice League.
Outside, it is late June in Leavesden, England, but inside Warner Bros. Studios, it is the cinematic world of the DC Extended Universe, on the set of 2017’s Justice League. Late last week I was part of a small group of journalists to get a first look at the production of the big-budget superhero flick on Day 31 of its at most 112-day shoot. We interviewed director Zack Snyder, actor/executive producer Ben Affleck, and spoke with actors Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. We explored sets, pored over concept art, examined hero costumes up close (and got to play with some super props), watched filming and saw footage.
In the following articles, I’ll break it all down based on plot and individual characters. Before I get into that, let me share my biggest takeaway from the set: the tone of Justice League.
I did not love Batman v. Superman, and was disappointed by the first big-screen team-up between the most popular superheroes in pop culture. But, at this stage, Justice League appears to be a superhero movie that introduces levity and hopeful heroics, with a giant-sized comic book story. And though I’ve only seen two short scenes, I walked away from Leavesden optimistic about this movie. While it is impossible to judge an entire film based on one day on set, I am likewise encouraged by the message emerging from those closest to the film.
Deborah Snyder: "We're only ever planning, and are only doing Justice League. Just Justice League. One movie."
"This is a totally different movie than Batman v. Superman," said Deborah Snyder, producer on the film. "We're going to see all the heroes in a way that people know them from the comic books."
"It's about the purpose of being a hero, and Superman's death had such a strong effect on Batman, and he regains faith in humanity, and everything that's good; here's this alien who just gave his life for us, and it really changes Batman, and he also feels responsibility to honor him, so I think you're seeing the elevation of these heroes."
To hit home the point, she added later, “The darkest where we’ve been is where we’ve been."
Talking on the set of the Batjet Hangar -- flanked by a souped-up Batmobile (shown here for the first time), and a different car under wraps, and the green screen frame for the CG carrier ship, the Flying Fox, and a lot of Wayne Aerospace equipment -- Snyder said filmmakers learned some lessons from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“Where we were going is kind of what the audience is wanting,” she said. “We just had to take the characters from somewhere to bring them up to where they are and that was kind of our journey.”
Snyder added people “don’t like to see their heroes deconstructed,” and prefer them on “in all their glory,” being built up instead of broken down. She also said Flash and Cyborg, “definitely lighter” and younger characters, will appeal to kid audiences and that Justice League is going to be a “more inclusive” movie.
For his part, director Zack Snyder called this a team-building movie – and a complete film instead of a part one -- with more “iconic” versions of the characters with a lot of Kirby influences, a sci-fi scope, and a fun threat. Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, called the dynamic for the film “fun, funny, different.”
Ben Affleck, who is wearing the Batman cowl for the second time – and serves as executive producer on this film, as well as star, director, and co-writer on a standalone Batman movie – said his character will have more gallows humor, and that it will be a “totally different movie” than the last one since it is an ensemble and Batman is instilled with hope in his team.
“There’s definitely room for more humor,” said Affleck. “These DC movies are still, by their nature, a little more mythic than some comic book movies are, but [Batman v. Superman] was a heavy, dark movie … this is not that. This is a step in evolution from that. This is about bringing all these characters together which have their origins, and is about multilateralism, and hope, and working together … and there’s comedy that goes in that.”
The official synopsis: 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.
So if the tone is going to allow for more lightheartedness, and even humor, what is Justice League actually about? Apokolips, for one.
During the set visit, it was revealed Steppenwolf would be a major villain in Justice League. And parademons. And Mother Boxes. Set a few months after Batman v. Superman, Batman feels a threat is imminent, or maybe already present on earth -- and decides to get a team together.
The connection to the planet Apokolips was alluded to heavily in BvS. Not only did Batman encounter the bug-like minions, the parademons, in his Knightmare vision, he also saw a giant Omega symbol of Darkseid burned into the ground. Meanwhile, in the metahuman video footage stolen from Lex Luthor and given to Diana, Bruce Wayne views horribly injured teen Victor Stone merge with the alien tech of a Mother Box as his father, S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Silas Stone, looks on.
As for Steppenwolf, the the New God created by Jack Kirby is the uncle of the DC Comics Universe uber-villain Darkseid, and led an invasion of the bug-like parademons to Earth-2 in the New 52 continuity. He was spotted in the deleted BvS scene, titled “Communion,” with three floating Mother Boxes in front of Lex Luthor on the Kryptonian ship -- which explains why Luthor was ding, ding, dinging in his jail cell: The “ping” is the noise a Mother Box makes.
(Aside: Interestingly, when I asked Charles Roven if the Mother Boxes shown in Batman v Superman with Lex and Steppenwolf on the Kryptonian ship had a connection to Krypton, he simply said, "You're going to have to watch the movie." So might a Mother Box and the ship be the key to Supes' resurrection?)
While the press wasn’t shown more than a silhouetted design of Steppenwolf, and we were told that they hadn’t closed negotiations with an actor, I did see a design in the costume department I assume was the baddie. As opposed to what appeared in BvS, this was a humanoid, but demonic, clad in armor with two sets of horns protruding from its head. If this was the Steppenwolf we’ll see. He looks like a formidable, almost mythic, beast.
Meanwhile, the concept art for two types of Parademons are straight from the comics: Both the green and orange version have monstrous rocky skin, not quite reptilian, and covered in Apokoliptian armor. And in their nests, they hang upside-down by the thousand, crowded together (not unlike bats). One of those nests is directly under Gotham City, in an abandoned tunnel that was meant to connect with Metropolis.
From what I can extrapolate from the set and concept art, it appears that at least three Mother Boxes have existed on earth for a long time. In “History Lesson” flashbacks, I think it will be revealed when Atlanteans, Amazonians, and humans acquired a Mother Box, and how they impacted the culture of each.
Producer Charles Roven: The Atlanteans (before they were under water), Amazonians, humans, and Old Gods came together and agree to keep watch over the boxes after an event took place in the past.
For instance, art in the war room, or “Fortress” as it is known, showed costume designs of ancient Amazonians where they appeared tribal, akin to Native American Mohicans. There was also updated versions of the Amazons, clad in armor.
The concept art also revealed temples where the Mother Boxes were held and protected. In one drawing, a group of Atlantean soldiers seemed poised to strike at Aquaman as he swam towards one atop a pedestal. A similar scene of Amazons guarding another one, under a large domed structure, was also displayed.
Based on the props on a table in the room, the boxes are large, measuring about a foot or so on each side of the cube, with a circle design on the sides. The Amazonian one is deep red and ornate; the Atlantean a pale grey and organic-looking, like something made out of coral; the human one appears to be made out of steel, with knobby shapes protruding on all sides.
A major action sequence – I’m guessing from Act 2 – set up on that aforementioned Gotham rooftop involves the team of Batman, Flash, Cyborg, and Wonder Woman heading into the ruins of a ventilation tower (like a Gotham City version of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel shaft, as seen in Men In Black) into Stryker’s Tunnel:
As Batman arrives, Gordon asks, “How many of you are there?” Batman replies, “not enough,” and instructs Flash to turn off the bat-signal.
Gordon, mustachioed -- with glasses and wearing a long trenchcoat and fedora -- presents Batman with papers, explaining “dozens of witnesses” reporting the same bad guy creatures as the ones spotted in Metropolis.
Batman dryly comments on the “bad guys' flying monkeys” they’re chasing after. Wonder Woman suggests that the monsters “must carry people off to find out what they know,” to which Batman suggests the “eight could be alive.”
“Nine.” Cyborg enters, shocking the jumpy Flash, but eliciting a knowing smile from Wonder Woman – almost as if she’s happy to see him, or see that she accepted his invitation.
“The head of S.T.A.R. Labs was taken tonight,” says Cyborg.
“Another scientist,” Gordon adds, before Cyborg inquires how to find them. To this, Wonder Woman offers there “must be a nest nearby.”
Gordon talks of plotting the sightings and looking for a pattern. Cyborg points out tunnels connecting Gotham and Metropolis, a public works project Batman says was abandoned in 1929, but which is accessible via air vents.
The new team agrees to check out the possible lead, but Flash points out, gesturing to Cyborg, “If he’s coming, we’re not going to fit in the car…”
To which Batman replies, “I’ve got something bigger.”
Most of the heroes disperse, except Flash. As Gordon turns to ask, “Do you really think that …” and notices Batman gone – as does the Scarlet Speedster, who appears shocked to be left alone.
“Did they just … like that? … That’s rude!”
In the DCU, Stryker’s Island houses a superpowered prison, but in BvS (where the tower appears in the background), it’s the midpoint between Metropolis and Gotham City – and is the location where Doomsday crashed to earth.
The set itself – practical with green screen accents at the top for the ceiling, and a green screen rig for Batman’s “something bigger” vehicle, the NightCrawler -- is a massive affair, decked out to look old, rusty, decrepit, and separated between a shaft set and tunnel set on the same soundstage. Production designer Patrick Tatopoulos called it a “feast of brick,” but it’s also a world of metal wreckage. Signs for Gotham Iron Works and “Gotham WPA (Works Progress Administration) 1925-1929.” The shaft building is two stories, with a broken steel catwalk, accessible by staircase. Meanwhile, the tunnel set seems to have suffered a lot of water damage.
In concept art, there was a scene of Wonder Woman slaying Parademons on the shaft catwalk, then another of the four-legged Crawler using gigantic flamethrowers against an attacking threat. And yet another of the vehicle still seemingly in the tunnel, and perhaps partially submerged (which makes one wonder what water-loving hero might arrive at this point).
But despite all this, the motivations for Steppenwolf and the Parademons remain a mystery – except perhaps to pave the way for Darkseid down the road. Also a mystery: Where is Superman?
Although we can assume Superman will be in Justice League, he is nowhere to be found in concept art hanging in the war room. In our interview with Snyder, he discusses the concept of resurrection, but at this stage of the story I saw filmed, Superman doesn’t appear to be alive or active yet. If I had to guess, he’ll be an Act 3 surprise that swoops in to save the day in a big way.
Unsurprisingly, considering how Ben Affleck’s Batman was largely well received in BvS, the Caped Crusader takes the lead role in assembling a team to fight an oncoming threat. In our separate interview, Ben Affleck discusses where we’ll find the Dark Knight in the Justice League, and how he may allow for more humor, and is a man on a more defined mission.
But aside from his updated outlook, Batman also has updated gear. His Frank Miller-inspired suit from BvS gets more armor built in on the top layer. His cowl is also new, with less of a scowl. Justice League will also show off a new tactical batsuit.
Costume designer Michael Wilkinson said he built the suit with additional armor strapped on to face off against larger-than-life threats. But, he added, Batman may need to still account for old injuries, so there are asymmetrical flourishes, such as an arm brace built into the suit. The tactical suit will also include goggles as a nod to the white flashes in the eyes of the classic batsuit.
(And, in addition to playing with a grappling gun and batarang in the war room, Wilkinson showed me where the batsuit’s zipper is for pee breaks. So there’s that. Also, fun fact: the Batman cowl is a heavy piece of costuming that requires a plastic skull cap to be worn underneath by Affleck, along with a chin strap, to distribute the weight while still allowing him to move his head.)
Batman and Alfred (Jeremy Irons) will also being getting some new toys. Tatopoulos gave a tour of the Batjet Hangar, where Batman located on the harbor in an old Wayne Enterprises facility (which somehow connects to the body of water outside the new Wayne Manor, according to concept art). The HQ serves as a meeting place between the heroes at at least one point, and the facility is littered with ammunition crates and tools from Wayne Aerospace. At the computer station, an Atlantean document appears to be under analysis, next to jet schematics, and a bowl of spoiled fruit.
As mentioned earlier, the Batmobile parked here is very similar to the model seen in BvS, but with more weaponry. There is a big gun added to the cockpit, as well as more missiles. Tatopoulos also said it has mechanisms to raise or lower itself.
While Batman will get to show off his NightCrawler in the tunnel scene, the Flying Fox is a big addition to his armory. The jet, described like something of a mix between a B-52 and a Thunderbird by Tatopoulos, is a three-level carrier vehicle that can hold the Batmobile in its payload. The craft, designed for the military like the Crawler, will be created digitally, but the green screen reference on the ceiling of the Batjet Hangar makes it look like it will be incredibly large.
As to what car is under wraps in the Hangar? That remains a mystery.
Let me begin by stating how much I like The Flash on The CW, starring Grant Gustin. However, the Flash of the Justice League feels refreshingly different from the TV show. Moreover, I think Ezra Miller is going to be a tremendous crowd pleaser.
Take, for instance, a scene (one of the first shot for the film) Zack Snyder showed in the production’s war room:
A young skater-looking kid, short hair and clean-shaven, enters a warehouse covered in spray paint. He opens an electrical box, plugs in a fuse, and fires up the power. He enters a main room with TV monitors (at least one with Rick & Morty on in the background) and computers positioned all over the place, stacks of books in every direction. And as the power comes on, the light illuminates a chair in the corner – where Bruce Wayne has been sitting, waiting.
Bruce Wayne: Barry Allen. Bruce Wayne.
Barry Allen: You said that like it explains why there’s a total stranger in my place, in the total dark, sitting in my second-favorite chair.
Wayne presents Allen with printed-out screenshots from Lex Luthor’s hacked files of security camera footage in BvS; the ones that showed Barry getting milk and stopping a robbery in a convenience store.
Wayne: Tell me about this.
Allen: This is a person that looks exactly like me but who is definitely not … me. Somebody, I don’t know, hippie, long hair. Very attractive Jewish boy who drinks milk. I don’t drink milk.
Wayne remains stoic and tells Allen, “I know you have abilities; I just don’t know what they are.”
Allen: My special skills include viola, web design, fluent in sign language – gorilla sign language.
Wayne looks at the costume, The Flash outfit on display in Allen’s warehouse apartment.
Wayne: Silica-based, sand quartz fabric. Abrasion resistant, heat resistant.
Allen: Uh, yeah. I do competitive ice dancing.
Wayne: It’s what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on re-entry
Allen: I do very competitive ice dancing. Look man, I don’t know who you are, but whoever you’re looking for, it’s not me.
Upon this, Wayne throws a batarang at Allen, and the scene cuts to slo-mo (with temporary effects) as Allen sees it flying towards him. He looks at the batarang sailing past, and easily moves out of its way, and plucks it from mid-air. As time begins to speed up again, he turns back to Wayne.
Allen: You’re the the Batman?
Wayne: So, you’re fast.
Allen: That feels like an oversimplification.
Wayne: I’m putting together a team. People with special abilities. I believe enemies are coming …
Allen: Stop right there. I’m in.
Wayne: You are? Just like that?
Allen: Yeah, I … I need friends.
Wayne: Great. Great.
Allen: Can I keep this?
This scene felt fun while still serving the plot. It also sets up this Flash to be upbeat and heroic, while also presenting Batman an opportunity to mentor a younger hero (which Affleck discusses in our interview with him).
Overall, the footage reminded me slightly of the Tony Stark/Peter Parker dynamic from Captain America: Civil War.
There is a casualness to Affleck’s Bruce Wayne in the scene. He is serious, but less brooding and angry – like a Batman who is impressed and almost amused by this kid. And Miller is so darn likable in the role as a funny, nervous kid, and I can see him being a break-out character in the movie.
If Batman is Flash’s mentor, then Cyborg might be his bestie. On set, Miller and Ray Fisher were clearly at ease with one another, joking around and poking fun. When Zack Snyder directs Miller to be the one to turn off the bat-signal, he can’t help but freak out a little: “That’s so cool! Thank you, Zack. In your face, Ray!” And it’s easy to see how that sibling banter might carry over to on-screen.
On another note, The Flash’s costume is spectacular but practical. Made of 148 pieces, the costume is inspired by a professional cyclist’s uniform, if that cyclist was competing on another planet. The dark red and grey getup – with its familiar lightning bolt logo chest piece and lightning accents throughout -- is aerodynamic with panels, a rubberized skin, and wire coils wrapped throughout.
Wilkinson said this is Barry’s prototype suit (a piece of concept art showed a suit marked with a Wayne Tech logo), but that the concept is that the speedster may have been assembling it with items stolen from NASA or 3-D printers. The entire suit is covered in knicks and dings acquired from high-speed travel. The speed damage on the costume give it an extra layer of personality, and Wilkinson’s concept of Barry being a “human-sized electrical coil” with those attached cables is very cool.
In the war room, there is about as many images of Wonder Woman launching headfirst into battle as there are of Batman. And while Justice League appears to be led by Batman, it looks to me as if Diana Prince is as crucial in assembling the team as Bruce.
This will be Gal Gadot’s third outing as Wonder Woman, after having appeared in BvS, and recently wrapping her solo film directed by Patty Jenkins (scheduled for a June 2017 release).
Talking to us in between takes, Gadot is in her full WW costume, but she appears a lot more laid-back and lighthearted than Diana is often allowed to be. She also has the honor of being the actor to launch into giggles during the Gotham rooftop scene after Ray Fisher gives her a funny face.
She jokes that, in this movie, Diana is “kind of bipolar,” before adding:
“The Wonder Woman we see in the Justice League is similar to the Wonder Woman that we saw on BvS. The Wonder Woman that you will see on the solo movie, she’s different. It’s the coming of age story, it’s about her become an adult, really. From a child to an adult. And understanding the complexities of life.”
When viewed up close, Wonder Woman’s costume appears to be covered in chips and scratches earned in battles throughout the years. The red on her breastplate seems slightly brighter than in BvS, and Wilkinson jokes it is due to “centuries of congealed blood.” In addition to her sword and shield, both engraved with ancient Greek, she also gets to rock a spear at one point in the film, and has a long, flowing, slightly tattered cape in some images.
Let’s not forget about her lasso of truth. The gold, leathery weapon is capped with a nasty little metal point, and I wonder if we’ll see its precursor – a standard whip – which was displayed on the prop table in the war room. (And no, I cannot tell a lie, I got to pick up and handle Wonder Woman’s lasso, and it was fantastic.)
We will also get to spend time on the Amazonian island of Themyscira if the concept art is to be trusted. Through those “History Lessons” and a look at the modern society, Wonder Woman’s world will be populated by the likes of Hippolyta (played by Connie Nielsen), Antiope (Robin Wright), Melanippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli), Euobea (Samantha Jo), Artemis, and Otrera.
Ray Fisher’s Cyborg will primarily be a CGI creation, which explains why the actor was on set in his “silk pajamas” with red eye and chest pieces. Created by Apokoliptian tech, as we saw in BvS, Victor Stone has a unique connection to the Mother Box.
In the Gotham rooftop scene above, the silent exchange between Wonder Woman and Vic leads me to believe perhaps he is a reluctant recruit to the team until his father Silas Stone (Joe Morton) is kidnapped from S.T.A.R. Labs.
Because his character is going to be computer generated, there wasn’t much to physically look at, but Cyborg does seem to have some sweet tech in the concept art. His suit is alien in nature, and because Vic’s body is largely destroyed, light will pass through his gears and metal bindings. He will also be able to transform his arm to form that familiar gun. The coolest part was his Battle Mode, which includes full face armor and two additional arms that fold up under his back when not in use. And yes, my Cyborg fans, he will be able to fly via Jump Jets.
Fisher, who said he’s thankful for the costume he has since his cohorts have a “beast” of a time with theirs, said he gained notice after director Ang Lee saw him perform off-Broadway in 2013:
“I was in a play off Broadway playing Muhammad Ali at the New York Theatre Workshop three years ago now. And around the time, Ang Lee, one of his upcoming projects was a 3D boxing movie about Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier and he came and saw the show at that time. And I hadn’t had an agent or a manager up until that point, but once people caught word of that, they started coming to the show to see who’s this guy that people are coming to look at and from there I signed up and went out to California for a visit and met up with Lord Kennedy and Kristy Carlson from Warner Brothers and they said, ‘we have something that may be right for you, but we can’t tell you what it is. It’s just in the realm of the Batman/Superman universe.’ And I was like, ‘I’m done, I’m done. Sign me up. I’ll play a tree.’ … and from there, I just put something on tape for Zack while I was in New York. And we went out to Detroit and tested and it just sort of fell into place very quickly and I’m extremely grateful that it did. Coming up in the theatre and grinding for ten years, trying to make the ends meet. It was a pretty sweet payoff.”
At that point, Miller jumps in and jokes, “And now he’s playing a tree.”
Most of the concept art of Arthur Curry/Aquaman in the Justice League set don’t involve him interacting with the rest of the team. There’s one of him on the Flying Fox, or having a confab with Bruce Wayne in the Batjet Hangar. Expanding on something Snyder said about having almost all the leaguers together for one scene so far – and the fact that I saw actor Jason Momoa in the airport, so I know he’s in London -- I’m led to believe Aquaman has appeared with his cohorts but is maybe on his own mission.
At least, I really hope so because I want to spend a lot of time seeing the Atlantean world.
The concept art revealed a rich world of underwater warriors clad in scaly armor. There were ancient Atlanteans as well, and some who were pale and alien, like deep water beings (my immediate thought was of Sofia Boutella’s Jaylah we’ve seen in the Star Trek Beyond trailers). In addition to the underwater world’s Mother Box, there was a prop sword (covered in Atlantean runes) and Atlantean blaster that were also made of the whitish-gray rock.
Notably, art showed us an ancient Atlantean king with a big red beard, who looks to be played by Kristofer Hivju, aka Tormund Giantsbane from Game of Thrones. The casting is unconfirmed, but it looks exactly like him. The big guy will probably command Atlantis, but the artwork reveals Arthur Curry eventually makes his way underwater to retrieve his famous trident from the hands of the skeletal king, dead on the throne. It is also Arthur Curry who swims into the temple of the Atlantean Mother Box, set high on a pedestal.
Wilkinson shared that the Atlanteans “once were above water and came down,” and his costumes for them appear almost magical while remaining aquatic and amphibious. Made of a polyurethane fabric, they’re stretchy but dimensional. And the outer armor has a translucent effect to it that shows reflective scales underneath, like an underwater version of chainmail. There are likewise a series of subtle gill slit-esque openings on the costume that connects the beings to their fishy friends. On the Atlantean soldiers, we’ll see sharp, gold, gilled helmets and armor that is a little more worn down, even with highlights that appear to be encrusted algae. This is all going to look really amazing when the light hits it, I predict.
Momoa’s final costume – which Wilkinson said is not in use yet – definitely resembles an updated and believable approach to Aquaman’s orange/gold and green palette (and is vastly different than the BvS poster above). And he does sport that classic “A” on his waist. And, having held his trident, I can attest to the fact that Jason Momoa will be wielding a pretty heavy weapon – although there is some mystery to how many tridents are in the movie, and why.
An interesting highlight is how the costumes all appear part of a regal hierarchy. Mera, the warrior/sorceress played by Amber Heard, will have her signature tiara and also reflects that chainmail skin/scale appearance.
And Willem Dafoe, who is playing the Atlantean scientist and political advisor Vulko will have long hair and a courtlier, elaborate appearance. He has more layers than Aquaman, with colors that are a little more washed-out and silvery to reflect he is from a different generation of Atlanteans. Wilkinson said it is more of an ancient feel compared to the “young whipper snapper” that is Aquaman.
So what else can I tell you about what I saw on the Justice League set? Well, with nearly 5,000 words of text, I’d say I’ve tried to lay out quite a bit. From what I saw, the tone feels like something out of DC Comics. Most certainly this is a movie with a lot riding on it, but if I were to sum it all up, I’d say I’m optimistic, and pretty excited to see what’s cooking in the DCEU.
What did you think of this extensive set report from Justice League? Does it have you excited for the 2017 movie? What else are you looking forward to finding out?
