How Will JUSTICE LEAGUE's Reception Shape the Future of the DCEU?

How Will JUSTICE LEAGUE's Reception Shape the Future of the DCEU?

With the release of Justice League just a few days away, Ben Affleck doesn't know if he will continue as Batman in the DC Extended Universe.

The footage reveals a reluctance on the underwater hero's part, as he initially prefers to keep his crimefighting work low-key.

Take a look at the new Justice League promo below. The Snyders have been working with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on her sequel (slated for November 1, 2019), and director James Wan just wrapped Aquaman (out December 21, 2018), where "you'll get to see why he's so jaded", Momoa teases. The helmer recently took to Twitter to praise Zack Snyder's team-up film, touting the central characters as a blast to watch, and a "terrific" film overall. That means pushing not just Wonder Woman to the fore, but also Miller's Flash, Momoa's Aquaman and Ray Fisher's Cyborg. And to see that different manifestation of Batman and his whole different style. Part of the appeal of this genre is wish fulfilment: Wouldn't it be nice if there was somebody who can save us from all this, save us from ourselves, save us from the consequences of our actions and save us from people who are evil?' said Affleck. Though the epicenter of DC Comcs has always revolved around Batman and Superman, that's starting to change. And Wonder Woman, a more evolved and experienced heroine in the wake of her movie, "understands the pressure and the stakes" of the invading force, Gadot says.

"That's sort of the way you should do it", he added about seeing the blockbuster film with an audience.

Ciaran Hinds plays the villanous Steppenwolf in Justice League. "Watching the team dynamic as characters is one of my favourite things about this movie, because superheroes are all different factions of the human psyche, personality traits, just personified and made grand", the 34-year-old actor told Den of Geek. "And everyone watching this movie is going to identify with the "at the between" characters and the similarities between characters as well".

Mother Boxes: what the heck are they?

Saving the world is serious business for these two comic-book icons in Justice League.
