Justice League was originally envisaged as a two-parter movie, but the mediocre response to Warner Bros’ early DC movies, plus not all two-parters doing so well (such as the final Divergent movie ending up as a TV movie), this appears to be on its own. The same is also happening for next year’s Avengers: Infinity War.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions… but Zack Snyder will give it a good try.
Director Zack Snyder does what he should’ve done with Man of Steel and Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and frames the movie at 1.85:1 instead of 2.35:1. Both of those films had 70mm IMAX scenes opening up to 1.44:1 on the cinemas that could show such a film (all four of them in the UK), while digital IMAX screens (most of them) could only open up to 1.90:1, so 1.85:1 is the way to go, here.
With a script by Chris Terrio, who co-wrote the story with Snyder, the cast also includes Amy Adams, Connie Nielsen, Amber Heard, Kiersey Clemons, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, JK Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Ciarán Hinds, Samantha Jo and Eleanor Matsuura… and maybe Jared Leto as The Joker, but overall, on watching both the first trailer and, now, this trailer…
Justice League is released in UK cinemas on November 17th.
