I’m a very forgiving soul so I am allowing myself to get fairly excited about both a DC film and a Zack Snyder film. I enjoyed Watchmen and I waited till the extended BluRay version of Batman vs Superman came out and enjoyed the hell out of that too. So bollocks, I am looking forward to Justice League.
Suicide Squad was crap, so I won’t go full on “Star Wars” excited yet. DC have yet to find their feet. I know trailers mean bugger all these days, so for what it is worth, here is the Justice League official trailer. I think it looks great! Woohoo DC!
I previously wrote about the JJ Abrams and Zach Snyder Star Wars/ Superman vs Batman crossover shenanigans here. Essentially they are having fun inserting bits of each other’s franchise into pictures from their own. They are also coincidentally publicising their work knowing that nerds will salivate over every shot and will share it all over social media like the sad Star Wars / Superman / Batman obsessed fools we all know and love (and probably are).
Well, JJ Abrams has recently released a steady cam shot of the new Millennium Falcon. There is a Batmobile camouflaged on the bottom but after viewing the real life Falcon model in all its glory I had forgotten that it was supposed to be a Snyder crossover thingy. It’s an impressive hunk of junk. The Snyder fun is fine but can now stop. It has achieved what it set out to do which was to use websites like Scifiward to promote their franchise for free and – ahh, whatever. Just show me more Star Wars! Anything!
On twitter there has been an amusing exchange between the Bad Robot studios (JJ Abrahms’ lot doing Star Wars), and Zack Snyder who is currently making Batman vs Superman. Here is a tweet from Zack Snyder where he has actually staged the pic near the Batmobile and features a Gotham police car:
Not to be outdone, the people at Bad Robot have been tweeting things like this:
Long may this battle continue! Talented nerds doing crossovers are a joy.
