If there’s one core element that can make or break a superhero ensemble movie – or indeed any film crammed with an all-star cast – it’s chemistry. Forget city-levelling CG destruction or scenery-chewing villains, more often than not it’s the interplay between those costumed heroes that tends to resonate with audiences the most after the credits roll, and in 2017, director Zack Snyder will be bringing together DC’s finest for the Justice League movie.
Earmarked for November of next year, production on the 2017 tentpole has all but entered the home stretch, with Snyder sharing scores of set photos to give fans but a taste of what’s to come. The latest hails from Entertainment Weekly and it’s a doozy, bringing together three of DC’s greatest heroes in Bats, Wonder Woman and The Flash.
Yes, it seems Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Ezra Miller’s characters are transfixed by something (someone?) in this particular action shot, but the real question is whether or not today’s reveal indicates that a new Justice League trailer is on the horizon. Stay tuned for more on that front.
Elsewhere, EW quizzed Zack Snyder about the dynamic between Gadot and Co., to which he replied that he’s “super happy with the chemistry of my league of justice doers.”
Ezra Miller, meanwhile, went on to speak a little more about how the Scarlett Speedster fits into proceedings, who likened The Flash to the unruly teenager in this most dysfunctional family.
“Flash is Ringo Starr. He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone. Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too. (He’s had a long life of fighting crime.) Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she’s annoyed with the Flash, she’s still very compassionate.”
Justice League is set to hit theatres on November 17, 2017 and according to one report, we may well be laying eyes on a brand new trailer before the week is out.
