Just days after the “big” trailer reveal, Warner Bros. has released two new TV spots for Justice League, the long-awaited team-up film based on the DC Comics characters. The trailer this past Sunday was, by many, claimed as the best trailer the studio has released for the film. While that very well could be the case, one of the aspects that stood out most from the trailer to many is how hard WB and DC are hitting home the lighter tone. Let’s be honest, the footage was peppered with light-hearted moments , and that is without a doubt continued in two new spots for the movie.
From the beginning, after the disappointment Batman v Superman received, WB promised fans that moving forward, DC would be a much lighter universe. Not to say vibrant colors or the kind of comedy Marvel uses, just not as heavy as Batman v Superman was. And over the course of three days, the marketers behind Justice League have made sure to hammer home that this movie is far different in tone from its predecessor.
I’m not too sure how I feel about it yet, as much of the comedy or one-liners feel out of place within the trailer. Hopefully, hopefully when the time comes around to see it, it 100% works in the moment and context of what’s going on. That’s all I can hope for at this point, and if that’s the case, Justice League could actually be the movie we’ve all hoped it could be.
What do you think? Are the trailers and footage giving you confidence? Do they make you worry in any way? Sound off below! Justice League hits theaters on November 17th and stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Henry Cavill.
