‘Justice League’ Comic-Con Trailer Wows Crowd in Hall H

The day’s barely started, and already WB and DC have kicked San Diego Comic-Con off particularly well this morning. Not only did they release the very first official, bad ass new trailer for next year’s standalone Wonder Woman movie, but they have also released the first trailer for director Zack Snyder’s Justice League as well. I need to be careful when I say what I feel about the film as well, considering the fan response to the Batman v Superman trailer last year… and well, what the movie ended up being.

With that being said though, Justice League seems to have the energy, charisma, and fun tone that a movie about joining together a number of the most iconic and powerful characters in comic book history should have. Unlike Snyder’s previous outing, that is.

Check out the trailer below:

Right off the bat, it should be pointed out that DC is openly releasing HD versions of both this and the Wonder Woman trailer today, unlike last year when they desperately tried (unsuccessfully) to keep the Suicide Squad trailer from being released online. The change in strategy could mean some great things for the future of Hall H presentations as well, and a decrease in pirated trailers hitting the interwebz after panels.

There’s a noticeable amount of humor in the trailer as well, mostly all centered around Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman (who looks on point as usual), and while it’s obviously intentional, seeing the characters having as much fun with each other as we do watching them hang out is a nice change of pace for the DC films. Ezra Miller lives up to the hype as Barry Allen as well, in the same scene that was shown a few months ago to press at a set visit.

Other new looks include our first actual footage of Aquaman in the ocean, as well as Arthur Curry’s above-water look, and Momoa’s take on the character seems interesting, to say the least. All in all though, despite a large majority of the footage still being unfinished, the visual effects on The Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and even Batman all look great. Zack Snyder knows how to cut trailers for his films, that much is already clear from his previous outings, but here’s to hoping that this one ends up living up to its trailer’s promise.

Justice League is set to hit theatres on November 17th, 2017.
