Word comes by way of IGN, who spoke to both Deborah and Zack Snyder ahead of Dawn of Justice‘s arrival. There, the creative pair shed new light on the Justice League, hinting that the likes of The Flash (Ezra Miller) will bring a lighter tone to the ensemble.
“Justice League is a little bit lighter because some of these characters, you have Flash, tend to be a little more comedic I’d say,” producer Deborah Snyder confirms in the video above before director Zack Snyder adds: “One of the things that lightens it is having The Flash or having characters that are more optimistic. This movie is in particular is two characters who are in a crisis of conscience which sort of draws them together.”
Also starring Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), production on the Justice League is due to commence at some stage next month.
