Just in time for the holiday season, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment graced us with a new photo from the upcoming Justice League featuring the Flash (Ezra Miller), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Batman (Ben Affleck).
The photo on EW.com doesn’t really shed light on anything new from DC’s 2017 ensemble film. However, it’s still an awesome photo. We get a better look at The Flash’s costume as well as Batman and Wonder Woman’s current super-suits; they look like modified versions of their costumes from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Whoever edited the photo perfectly captured the signature style of Justice League‘s director, Zack Snyder. It has elements that give his movies their signature look: muted colors and lens flares. There’s no question this movie fits right in with Man of Steel and Batman V Superman.
“What about movies that have unnecessarily long running times? That’s a signature of his!”
It is no accident the Dark Knight, the Scarlet Speedster, and the Amazing Amazon are in the new photo. If you remember the first Justice League trailer, they and Cyborg (Ray Fischer) are the only ones who had any dialogue. So, I am guessing they’ll be the focus of plot A while plot B is Superman (Henry Cavill) getting resurrected.
I thought we’d get a new Justice League trailer around this time of year to build up hype. Recently, Disney did it with The Force Awakens (the teaser released 13 months before it hit theaters). Warner Brothers did it with the Dark Knight Rises (12 months before the fire rose). Maybe we will get one with Kong: Skull Island, and definitely with Wonder Woman. This photo fills the void just fine.
