The Justice League’s Iconic Appeal: Can It Save the Film?

The journey to the big screen for Justice League has been a rollercoaster ride, with its lengthy and tumultuous production often overshadowing the excitement that once surrounded the film. From the reportedly unwatchable first cut to Zack Snyder’s departure during post-production and the extensive reworking of the project, it’s been a constant topic of discussion among fans for months.

DC’s Iconic Superheroes: The Heart of the Hype

Despite the setbacks, it’s important to remember why we were excited about Justice League in the first place. DC’s diverse cast of superheroes offers something that most of Marvel’s characters can’t: iconic status. The Justice League and its members represent the core of the superhero archetype, setting the standard for what it means to be a hero and what audiences expect from them. They’ve established a generational benchmark that all other superhero concepts are measured against (something Marvel attempted to emulate in the Grecian-inspired end credit sequence in Age of Ultron).

Regardless of your opinion on this version of the characters or the DCEU as a whole, there’s a reason why Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman have endured and remained popular for so long. There’s a reason why we continue to see Kevin Conroy Batman movies in 2016 and Adam West Batman movies in 2017.

Fans adore these characters and want to see them on the big screen in a movie as epic and well-crafted as The Avengers. No one wants these iconic characters to fail.

Warner Bros’ Final Marketing Push: A Nostalgic Reminder

In the final marketing push for Justice League, Warner Bros has revisited the one trailer that managed to unite fans, even DCEU skeptics: the “Come Together” trailer. Featuring a powerful cover of the iconic Beatles song, this trailer was the last time audiences were genuinely excited for the DCEU’s Justice League.

Warner Bros has now released the official music video for the film, showcasing that cover of the song. Combining existing promotional footage of the film (and notably light on the seemingly unfinished shots from the most recent trailer) with Gary Clark Jr’s electrifying guitar riffs, it serves as a reminder of why we first wanted to see Justice League: to witness these diverse heroes unite as a team.

The Justice League’s Iconic Appeal: Can It Save the Film?

As a seasoned film enthusiast, I can’t help but feel skeptical about this incarnation of the franchise. However, I genuinely want Justice League to be a great film. I want to love these characters and enjoy these movies. And while it’s doubtful that this film will make me a die-hard DCEU fan, I can’t help but hope that Warner Bros’ efforts finally come together into something truly spectacular.
