So no Cyborg, Black Adam, Gotham City Sirens, Man of Steel II, or Nightwing. Must be in their 'phase two' plans...

I'd hope so. Also they seem to have replaced Flash with Flashpoint, which seems to be more of case them not being able to actually have a real Flash director attached for too long.

Flashpoint is a strange story to choose for film adaptation. It seems like it really depends on the audience having a firm grasp on what is normal for all the characters.

It's gonna be their way to fix earlier mistakes in their film universe just like they did with Flashpoint on the CW shows. It's a good move.

Yeah, that JL trailer didn't make me more excited for this movie. Looks like I'll wait for it to pop up on Netflix. It's nice that WW is becoming a bigger part of the ad campaign though.

Isn't Netflix still getting bought out by Disney/Marvel? If so you'll likely never see it. A lot of the WB animation and stuff will be removed on Aug. 1st, presumably to make people wanna get the DC streaming service.

I hope their whole library is on there. Challenge of the Superfriends, Batman TAS in its entirety, etc...

Did anyone catch the line of "No Lanterns, no Kryptonian"? At least that's what I thought I heard.

I don't think that green glow has anything to do with GL though.

The only remaining interest I have in this movie is if Green Lantern makes a surprise appearance in the film. Not sure how they would have both GL AND Superman act as the cavalry at the end, but maybe they will do something like that (DC: New Frontier pulled that idea off pretty well). I'll just let myself be spoiled and if I hear GL is in it, I'll go see it. Otherwise this looks like a turd I can pass on.

Hated the trailer you mean? Too choppy, seems like a rock and roll, Michael Bay kind of production. Too cheesy. The Flash really grinds my gears, and I can't get over how bad he is. I just want to punch him every second he's on screen. The whole trailer looks like it was done by people that don't get superheroes, much less the JLA. The tone is so wrong. Alfred is so miscast. Cyborg doesn't look good. Steppenwolf kind of looks impressive but the trailer doesn't do a good job of conveying what the JLA is even trying to stop. It seems like Bruce Wayne is a super agent putting together a motley crew of badasses to go on a mission like a war movie. Like super hero movies done by people who don't know anything about the comics they are adapting. Everything just feels wrong.

I'm not as negative as BDD, but I will say that Flash joke didn't work for me. It was done and I thought "oh, that was supposed to be some kind of joke punchline to the trailer." So, he's definitely not working for me in look or attitude.

They clearly had never heard of the Flash when they booked this chick to play him. It reminds me of the Fox version of Quicksilver in one of the X Men movies, that had nothing to do with the comic version. They just created something they thought would be amusing for that specific movie. That's what they are doing here with the movie Flash. I thought tv Barry was completely wrong, but he looks like gold compared to this.

^Yeah, he seems more Peter Parker than Barry Allen. And I'm tired of Peter Parker.

When the options are pay money to see this movie or possibly see it on a streaming service I already pay for, I'll take my chances as this trailer left me with next to no confidence in this film. This isn't the coming together of characters that I'd have wanted growing up. Heck, most of the characters don't even feel like the characters. Fresh takes are great and all, but the only good will this series has built up so far was the WW movie.

When the trailer mentioned Superman being a beacon of hope, all I wanted to see was an Arrested Development style switch to "Footage not found."

I liked the Justice League trailer. There are some great character moments, especially from the Flash with "...I usually just push people" and "they all left. That's pretty rude."

I look forward to seeing these characters "come together, right now." It may not be the best, but I think it will be memorable and a milestone in comic book films.

He seems more like JL cartoon Wally West than classic comic Barry Allen, but I'll reserve judgment on that for now. However, despite the speed force effects looking good, I dislike that costume. It's too busy, and there is far too much black on it.

Even if it's not everything that I want, I've simply spent too much of my life with these characters not be extremely excited. This movie is about 15 years overdue.

WORD!

From the reports I've been gathering, it would appear that Zach Snyder might lose his director's credit for Justice League, meaning that Joss Whedon will be credited as director of the film as he would have directed/filmed more than 50% of the final cut of the film.

The Barry Allen humor from the latest trailer certainly feels like Whedon's work.

I would rather they had started from scratch, and not use anything Snyder had in the can. And dumped the Flash.
