Regardless of whether you loved or loathed Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s no denying that some of the movie’s most enjoyable moments came from when iconic heroes like the Dark Knight, the Man of Steel and Wonder Woman all interacted on the big screen for the first time. Justice League adds the likes of Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash into the mix, and that promises to be an awful lot of fun for fans of these iconic superheroes.
That doesn’t mean it will be all smooth sailing for the members of Batman‘s team, however. In a recent interview, Justice League director Zack Snyder weighed in on the group’s complicated dynamic and how the manner in which these very different characters interact ultimately serves the story in an exciting and satisfying manner.
“One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics, and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team. [Their dynamic] not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast – their chemistry really adds to that dynamic.”
Snyder is definitely saying all the right things here, but after the DC Extended Universe’s rocky start, it’s going to take quite a bit more than this to help fans put their fears to one side. A new trailer for the film would certainly help matters, but since we know that new footage won’t be arriving with The LEGO Batman Movie this weekend – as previously expected- we’ll have to pin our hopes on getting a new preview with Kong: Skull Island in March.
Tell us, do you think Snyder will be able to nail the team dynamics and the unique personalities of the titular heroes in Justice League? Sound off below with your thoughts.
