Justice League Banner

Justice League

Rated PG-13 | 120
Release Date: November 22, 2017

It’s easy to go into watching Justice League with very low expectations considering how the entire DCEU is filled with bad to god-awful films, with the exception of Wonder Woman. That film was a huge step forward in the right direction for the superhero universe, as it used themes of hope and optimism to do some course correction.

But with Justice League looking like it did in the trailers, one would think that the film would be a step back. However, that isn’t the case. While it is flawed, Justice League has a lighter tone, is funnier, and isn’t as bleak as some of its predecessors. That being said, it is a DCEU film. But at least it is a DCEU film that takes another step in the right direction. Check out my full review below.

Rotten Tomatoes Score For ‘Justice League’ To Be Revealed Day Before Its Release

Justice League

The DCEU has had its fair share of bad films. Actually, almost all of them are incredibly bad with the exception of Wonder Woman. That being said, the franchise has somewhat of a reputation for producing disappointing superhero films. Something you can tell by just looking at their Rotten Tomato score.

While the aggregator site’s scores for films can be misleading at times, it is a tool that is used for a filmgoer to determine whether or not they will check out the film in question. So it really says a lot when Rotten Tomatoes will not reveal the score for Justice League until one day before the film’s release. More on the story below.

Seven New ‘Justice League’ Clips See Steppenwolf Assert His Powers Against DC Heroes

Justice League

Thor: Ragnarok isn’t the only superhero film to open this November. In just a few short weeks, Warner Bros. will be releasing their latest superhero ensemble film, Justice League. Featuring some of DC’s mightiest heroes, the film will bring together Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to stop a powerful threat that could put an end to all life as we know it.

Though we got a fleeting glimpse of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) through the small deleted scene and a few trailers, a handful of new clips gives us not only our best look at the villain, but also just how powerful he is over the five heroes. So where is Superman (Henry Cavill) when you need him. Hopefully, the clips will answer that. Check it out below.

‘Justice League’: Get To Know Aquaman, Cyborg, and Danny Elfman’s Music

Justice League

Justice League won’t have the standard build-up to the team-up we’ve all be expecting. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman were already introduced in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Wonder Woman, but Justice League will be the first time that we will be seeing Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash. Of course, we can find out all about these characters through a simple internet search, but the film will probably interpret their origins differently. So, through a series of promotional videos, we will learn about the heroes that make up the Justice League in the weeks leading up to the film’s release.

Also, since Danny Elfman will be composing the score for Justice League, you can hear a sample of his music below.

Justice League Banner

Justice League is only a few more weeks away from being released, and the anticipation is high for the DC superhero ensemble. Of course, the DCEU does have somewhat of a stigma with most of the films being flat out bad. This year’s Wonder Woman put an end to that streak, and it looks like Justice League can continue that turnaround.

Reports are estimating that the film could have a $110 million-plus opening weekend, which would be fairly impressive for a franchise that seems to be just getting out of the hole it dug itself into. More on the story below.

‘Justice League’ Runtime Reportedly Won’t Be As Exhausting As You Think

Justice League

Zack Snyder films are near visual epics that could care less about the narrative. And that is okay for some. But they can be exhausting to watch if they have a very long runtime. While that may be true for most of his films, his departure from Justice League left many wondering if Joss Whedon, his replacement, will change anything.

Justice League

Featurettes are a nice piece of marketing material that goes behind the scenes of your favorite films. And for Justice League, we are getting a look at the newest superhero ensemble and the person that helped bring them all together.

In what will probably the first of many, this featurette takes a look at the dynamics between members of the team, their motivation, history, and more. While there is not a whole lot of new footage to look at, it’s great to see that the cast has some chemistry with each other. Because they’ll need that with all the mixed reactions the trailers have been getting. Check out the latest Justice League featurette below.

‘Suicide Squad 2’: Jaume Collet-Serra Now The Top Choice To Direct DC Films Sequel

Jaume Collet-Serra Top Choice To Direct Suicide Squad 2

Ever since David Ayer opted to take the reins on Gotham City Sirens in lieu of the sequel to his 2016 comic book action blockbuster Suicide Squad, it looked like Task Force X would require a new commander to call the shots on their next big adventure if the DC Films sequel was to be ready in time for its undated 2019 release.

The search for Suicide Squad 2‘s new director has not yet ended, but the current front-runner for the job is now Jaume Collet-Serra. Best known for making modestly budgeted action and horror hits like Non-Stop and The Shallows, Collet-Serra has seized the top contender position from Mel Gibson. Previous candidates also included Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Daniel Espinosa (Life), and Blade: Trinity director David Goyer.

‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.
