Justice League Trailer Breakdown--Here's What's Going On
By Tony Guerrero | @GManFromHeck on
For a guy who devotes a lot of money and Bat-Vehicles to fighting crime, he takes a more subdued approach to seeking out allies.
We hear Bruce mention an attack is coming, but Wonder Woman disagrees: "It's already here."
A Mother Box is a small, sentient supercomputer from the planet Apokolips. In the previous footage, the Mother Box was used to help Silas rescue his son and turn him into Cyborg.
Wonder Woman is shown in her civilian garb, talking to Bruce, as they prepare to seek out the others. From all the footage we've seen, it's only Bruce that heads out to recruit everyone. We'll have to wait and see whether or not Wonder Woman attempts to seek out Cyborg, since that first encounter hasn't been revealed.
Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, rescues what appears to be a fisherman. We can assume he was rescued from the rough seas and Aquaman didn't sink his boat. In the previous footage shown at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, Bruce arrives at the tavern seeking Aquaman out. Perhaps that scene takes place right after this.
Cyborg is shown in action. It's not clear how long it's been since his transformation. He is using his abilities to help others. That should make him easier for Bruce Wayne to find.
Batman is finally shown in action. In the middle of a battle, Batman swings into a Parademon, dodging lasers being fired at him.
Aquaman makes a giant leap in order to throw his trident at some Parademons.
During this scene, Wonder Woman tells Bruce, "They said the age of heroes would never come again." It's not clear what or who this is referring to. Were there other heroes? Were there other heroes in this cinematic universe before now? Perhaps we'll find out more in the Wonder Woman movie.
Wonder Woman is seen fighting a group of men. They are wearing suits and gloves that make them appear to be bank robbers or something of the sort. Two others are seen unconscious on the ground. This likely takes place before all the big Parademon fighting begins.
Aside from being half machine, Cyborg is also able to fly. He can also cover up the exposed parts of his face.
The Flash vs. a Parademon. He simply speeds behind it and slams it through a door.
Some viewers have critiqued the DC movies as being too serious. There will be humor in the movie. Barry asks Bruce what his superpowers are. Bruce replies, "I'm rich." This also sets the scene to reveal Batman's new vehicles.
Lois Lane makes an appearance. From Batman v. Superman, we know Superman is unable to take part in the action--at least for now.
Batman meets up with Commissioner Gordon, who comments, "It's good to see you playing well with others again." We know Batman's been active in Gotham for years and that his partner, Robin, was killed.
Aquaman arrives when Batman and the Commissioner are speaking. His comment towards Batman's outfit further shows there will be some humor. Batman and Aquaman may not be getting along too well.
Despite any differences Batman and Aquaman may have, they will be fighting side-by-side. Aquaman posed on top of the speeding Batmobile also further illustrates his brash and reckless behavior. Aquaman here is a warrior that seems to enjoy a good fight.
Justice League arrives in theaters on November 17.
