We recently got a great first look photo of the Justice League team together. Everyone was present except for Superman. Justice League will be the most challenging film for Zack Snyder to make, and fans are waiting to see if he will actually be able to pull it off. Fans are split on what they think of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, but I think everyone can agree that they should've and could've been much better.
During an interview with USA Today, Snyder talked about Justice League, saying:
“It was all about the filling-out of this massive comic-book pantheon with the biggest and coolest heroes we could.”
Filling out the biggest and coolest heroes for the film is the easy part! The hard part is perfectly building their characters for film and telling a great story with those characters. That's what the film should be all about. At least, that's what I think. You can have the best superhero characters in the world to fill a movie frame with cool visuals, but without a solid story and script, what's the point? Snyder went on to talk about Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and explained that she's fully evolved when we see her in Justice League.
When talking about the upcoming Wonder Woman film he said she finds that “humanity isn’t always the most kind and awesome thing." He continued:
“It has its moments, but it can be brutal, and her coming to terms with that dichotomy is what we come to learn about her. And in Justice League, she’s fully evolved into someone who’s embraced mankind, partly through Superman’s sacrifice. She’s like, ‘All right, I’ve got to pick it up.’”
Yeah, well... some people would say it's not really a sacrifice if he didn't really die. Regardless, it's good to hear that she has embraced mankind and that she is willing to fight for them and protect them. I'm looking forward to seeing some new footage from the movie, but until then, fingers crossed that it turns out better than many of us are expecting.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17th. For more information on the film click here.
