Hope. It’s the four-letter word on which rebellions are built, and coming out of this week’s DC-themed Twitter storm, comic book fans are now beginning to look toward Justice League with a renewed sense of it.
That’s because the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon blockbuster has officially been labeled as a solid addition to the fledgling DC Extended Universe – fun, but flawed is the early consensus – with the full-length reviews expected to debut early next week. In fact, as we reported just yesterday, that window has now been narrowed down to 11:50 pm PST on Tuesday, November 14th (2:50 am EST on the Wednesday for those on the East Coast), so it’ll be some time yet before we catch wind of the final verdict.
Until then, however, we’ve got a brand new promo to feast on which includes a few never before seen moments, including one humorous scene where the Bat swoops in to save the Flash from certain death. It’s short and sweet and while a lot of the footage here you’ll likely have already laid eyes on, it’s still worth a watch.
With the film now less than a week away, it seems as if Warner Bros. is in the final stages of their marketing blitz, and so far, they’ve done a pretty good job. Unlike with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, they’ve made sure not to spoil too much and have painted a fairly promising picture of the tentpole. Couple that with those mostly positive early reviews, and we can safely say that we’re eagerly anticipating the DCEU’s next outing.
Emerging from a prolonged spell in front of the cameras, which reportedly pushed Justice League‘s budget north of $300 million, the Zack Snyder mega-movie is locked in for November 17th. And we use the term ‘mega-movie’ lightly in this instance, as Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara allegedly pushed for a two-hour cut.
