Lovers of RetroEnt will know that we’re big fans of superhero movies – so it’s fair to say we’ve been ‘super’ excited (lol, geddit?) about the upcoming Justice League movie. For starters, Ben Affleck has promised a ‘more traditional’ Batman, which just makes us ridiculously happy. Secondly, THE CAST IS EPIC. Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, Willem Dafoe and the return of Henry Cavill? I mean, it’s the movie of dreams.
Thankfully, D.C and Warner Bros. have now fed our excitement with the second trailer for Justice League, and we’re kinda conflicted. On the one hand, we want to cry our eyes out. On the other hand, we want to punch a few walls and scale a few buildings to get into the spirit of things. In short: it’s awesome. Check it out:
The trailer gives us an emotional insight into the depressing and bleak life of those left behind in the wake of Superman’s death (something we’re still not over). The montage starts with the heartbreaking image of Lois Lane, as she dreams of a love-filled life with Clark Kent. Of course, she then wakes up to find that he’s no longer there (yep, we cried a little bit). However, things then get a little creepy – because the rest of the world is worried, and Batman can feel something coming on the horizon. So of course, Bruce Wayne then rallies some of the biggest and baddest superheroes in the business to fight those who threaten their world.
Divided, we are not enough. The world needs Superman, and I made him a promise, which is why I’ve brought you together.
As if this trailer wasn’t awesome enough, the music makes it even more epic. As the fight truly breaks out, we hear the a laid-back, stripped-back version of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ which truly represents the DC universe and everything we love about the superhero realm.
We can’t wait. Justice League drops in theaters on November 17, 2017.
