Justice League Details – Synopsis, Scene Descriptions and More
Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment has begun hyping up their upcoming film Justice League with a new synopsis and several cool new information for the big superhero movie set for release 2017.
First off, our first look at the logo for the film which will also be directed by Zack Snyder.
Check out the two logos below:
We also have a synopsis as early as now.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, 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, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
It also seems like Batman’s change of heart from BvS gets a lot of focus for the first Justice League movie. He was quoted saying:
He’s a little bit more sardonic, a little more irony. He’s a little more of a man on a mission this time. As opposed to, he was so full of anger because of what happened at the Black Zero Event. That sort of rage that possessed him. And now he’s on a mission to get this group together; to constitute this League. But more of that sort of Bruce Wayne, wry, ironic gallows humor comes out. He’s not like a ‘haha’ jokey, but that sort of stuff comes out a little bit. A bit of his darker humor is present.
And here’s a little bit more.
Justice League Flash and Batman Scene
In Devin Faraci’s article over at Birth Movies Death entitled A Hater Tours the Justice League Set he discusses a particular scene that calls back to Affleck’s statement about a “humorous” Batman.
In the clip Barry returns to his apartment, which is like a big warehouse space. There’s grafitti on the walls and a dozen TVs. He turns on a sparking fuse box to bring light to the place and the TVs jump to life. He walks into the main room and sees Bruce Wayne sitting in a chair.
“Barry Allen, I’m Bruce Wayne.”
“You say that like it explains why you’re sitting in my place in the dark in my second favorite chair,” says Barry.
Bruce, dressed impeccably, gets up and approaches the younger man. He holds out a printout of a screenshot of that Flash mpeg from BvS. He asks is Barry knows who that is.
“That’s someone who looks exactly like me but isn’t me,” Barry says. “He looks like a very attractive Jewish boy. He drinks milk, though, I don’t drink milk.”
Bruce tells Barry he thinks he has special skills.
“Sure,” Barry says. “I can code. I know sign language. Gorilla sign language.”
Bruce looks at the Flash costume that is mounted right in the middle of the room. “And this?”
“I’m into competitive ice dancing,” Barry says.
Bruce notes that the costume includes ceramic plates, the kind they use to keep the space shuttle from burning up on reentry.
“Very competitive ice dancing,” Barry says.
Then Bruce spins around and throws a batarang. Everything goes into slomo except for Barry, who quite casually steps out of the way of the oncoming blade. He slowly looks at Bruce, at the batarang, and plucks it out of the air. Everything returns to normal speed.
“You’re the Batman!” Barry says. “Can I keep this?”
“You’re fast,” Bruce replies.
“I think that’s underselling it,” Barry says.
“I’m gathering people with special abilities. There’s a great enemy coming -”
“I’m in!” blurts Barry.
Bruce is taken aback. So quickly?
“I need friends,” Barry says.
More Batman Costumes
If you enjoyed the various costumes Batman ran around in “BvS”, you’ll certainly enjoy “Justice League”. BMD’s Faraci also writes that there’s another interesting suit that Batman wears in the movie.
The tactical Batsuit is asymmetrical. The idea is that Bruce has modified it so that it supports his old broken body better. Like there’s a bigger pad on one shoulder because he has a bum shoulder. It makes the suit look cool, and not over-designed.
This time Batman’s cowl is made of a different, thinner material. It should move even better than in the last film, where it moved as well as any Batcowl ever has. We got to look inside the cowl and see how many little ways they designed it to get heat away from Affleck’s head. It was neat.
Justice League – All the Small Things
One of the cool things from the reports that are coming in that we will be seeing several new toys on Batman’s end. First thing that totally floored us is a new jet that can accomodate all seven members of the League as well as a Batmobile.
He also has a new jet, a big jet. Really big. It’s called the Flying Fox and it’s big enough to transport the whole JL and to carry a Batmobile for good measure.
Batman also has a quad-walker that is able to toast Parademons at any given time. So they still stick with the notion of Batman being a killer in the DC Expanded Universe.
I dunno about you guys but I’m totally looking forward to see the Justice League movie as soon as possible. In the meantime you may want to read my review of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
