No matter how the great the actual Justice League film turns out to be when it hits theaters this Fall, one thing is for sure, getting to see these classic superheroes interact on the big-screen for the first time is going to be insanely epic. For any of us life long DC Fans, just seeing the Aquaman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Superman fighting along side each other in a big-budget Justice League movie is still almost unimaginable.
Speaking of seeing these legendary character teaming up, one of the coolest parts of seeing them on the big-screen will be seeing their interactions and their relationships with one another.
Talking in the latest issue of Total Film Magazine, Justice League director Zack Snyder weighed in on just how much fun it was for him to take charge of scenes featuring these iconic characters together at last.
"One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics, and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team. [Their dynamic] not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast – their chemistry really adds to that dynamic."
The USA Today preview has some new quotes from director Zack Snyder as well. Check them out below.
With Superman (Henry Cavill) having laid down his life for Earth, Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) recruit a superteam to take on a new threat to civilization in Justice League. “It was all about the filling-out of this massive comic-book pantheon with the biggest and coolest heroes we could,” director Zack Snyder says of his group, which includes seafaring warrior Aquaman (Jason Momoa), speedy Flash (Ezra Miller) and high-tech Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Fans are getting a big character arc for Wonder Woman in 2017, beginning with her solo movie set during World War I. In it, she finds “humanity isn’t always the most kind and awesome thing,” says Snyder, also a producer on Wonder Woman. “It has its moments, but it can be brutal, and her coming to terms with that dichotomy is what we come to learn about her. And in Justice League, she’s fully evolved into someone who’s embraced mankind, partly through Superman’s sacrifice. She’s like, ‘All right, I’ve got to pick it up.’”
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.
Justice League is set to hit theaters on November 17th, 2017.
