Here’s All Those Amazing DC Movie Trailers from FanDome!

DC FanDome was yesterday and, holy cow, did they ever deliver! Hollywood may be in a bit of a standstill because of the virus, but that doesn’t mean moviemaking is dead! DC and Warner Bros are apparently churning out some real bangers! And we saw so many great trailers at FanDome yesterday.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

First up is The Batman by director Matt Reeves, with Robert Pattinson starring. This trailer looks dope as hell.

I like the look of the costume in action. And I love the tone of the trailer. As much as I might be interested in taking Batman in some new directions, I can’t deny that Batman done right is still damn cool. A serious, grounded take on Batman as he tackles corruption in Gotham City and tussles with more than just the Joker sounds great to me! I think this was my favorite trailer of the day.

Another great reveal was the lineup to The Suicide Squad by director James Gunn. Not a full trailer, just a great reveal of the characters who are gonna show up!

I think that’s a great teaser! The cast and the characters look awesome, and we already know James Gunn can deliver. Need proof? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of The Suicide Squad!

As much as I’m a Marvel fanboy and can’t wait to see Gunn return for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3, I am pleased as punch with everything shown here about The Suicide Squad. This is gonna be good.

Of course, The Batman and The Suicide Squad are a long ways away. We’ve actually got Wonder Woman 1984 coming sooner rather than later. How does that look?

It looks OK. Not as amazing as I would have hoped. And Cheetah looks way too CGI-heavy for my tastes. I think they could have showed her off better in this trailer. But everything looks largely OK. I think Wonder Woman 1984 is going to do just fine.

That is, if we ever get movie theaters back…

Lastly we’ve got the first official look at Zack Snyder’s Justice League. And I think it looks like hot garbage.

I am not a Snyder Fanboy or a #ReleasetheSnyderCut person. I have loved some Snyder movies, like 300 and Watchmen, but I think his DC Comics work has been terrible. I think Man of Steel is the worst. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was OK in the theater, but I have really soured on it since — same with Justice League. These are bad movies, and Snyder is to blame.

So I do not have any hopes for his remastered Justice League movie. None of these new scenes look good, and “Hallelujah” is a terrible choice for the trailer.

Of course, I’m still going to watch this 4-hour monstrosity when it comes out. Perhaps I’m wrong and it’ll be good for once, but I doubt it.

Overall, DC did great at FanDome, as far as I’m concerned. I’m glad to see they might finally be getting their act together with these movies.

  1. Daredevil season 4 looks great.
    I think I already made that joke somewhere else in the blog but I can’t not point it out, it’s obvious Matt Reeves took inspiration from the Daredevil series if what little we seen of the fight coreography is any indication, and if that’s the legacy the series brings then I’m all for it.

    As for the Snyder Cut I’m more optimistic towards it, in part because I think David S Goyer doesn’t get blamed as often as he should for MoS and BvS despite him writing the damn things, and also because I’ve seen the BvS Ultimate Edition, which changed more than I thought it would, in the theatrical film there was a lot of set-up with no payoff and payoff with no set-up, and I thought a a lot of that should have been cut to no waste time, but in he UE they show all the set-up and payoff that should have been there from the start, while giving the characters a lot more personality and making the film more coherent.

    It’s still not great, the rushed rivalry, the Martha scene and Doomsday are still there, but the film goes from painfully mediocre to actually decent, so as long as the Snyder Cut does that to Justice League I will be satisfied.

    • There is definitely a lot of Daredevil in the look and feel of the new movie Batman. Good catch! You’d think it wouldn’t be too hard to realize that fans want awesome Batman fights, not a cool-looking costume that severely limits mobility.

      I can’t remember if I saw the Ultimate Edition of BvS or not. I feel like I think I did…and it didn’t change my opinion of the movie at all. But part of me also feels like I just didn’t care enough to watch any version of BvS a second time. So I dunno!

      I’m also willing to put more blame on David S. Goyer. But I definitely don’t think Zack Snyder should be left off any hooks.
