DC Films continues to work their way through their lineup of projects that will soon hit the big screen. While standalone films in the DC Extended Universe like Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” also merit astounding interest, the hype revolving around “Justice League” is arguably hard to top.
The comic book company prides itself with having well-known characters that most of the time no longer need any introduction. That is why the putting all of the lore’s most iconic superheroes including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) in a movie is a spectacle worth looking forward to.
After a couple of months of filming in London, the cast and crew of at least the first part of the DCEU cumulative film have finally wrapped up production. Director Zack Snyder threw in a celebratory sizzle reel to announce the milestone via his official Twitter account.
The snippet is more of a behind-the-scenes look at how the rigorous filming came about and while it is technically not a trailer, DC fans gobbled up the video trying to spot some Easter eggs that may have been incorporated.
All five major characters were shown doing stunts and even just messing around with each other which is actually a breath of fresh air from the usually dark and gritty tone of the cinematic universe. Stripped down and without any effects incorporated, there were a couple of spectacular shots peppered through that viewers hope will make it on the final cut of the film. This includes a slow motion close-up Gadot in her battle gear with the wind blowing in front of her and the crew, minus Superman and Aquaman, piled inside an elevator which was already featured in the first trailer of the film released in this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Aside from the on-screen narrative that can be inferred from the montage, what stands out is that the cast and crew obviously enjoyed their time throughout the shoot. This is despite numerous harness and action stunts that were seen in the preview. That alone keeps fans’ hopes high that it the film could finally bullseye their desired tone which has been the main gripe of viewers in the last two DCEU films in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.”
Following their U.K. stint, Momoa and Snyder traveled to Iceland to film Aquaman-heavy scenes which Affleck is also slated to be in. The “Game of Thrones” actor took to his Instagram account to post a photo of him and his director obviously having fun in the Nordic island nation.
“Justice League” is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 17, 2017. Prior to that, “Wonder Woman” will roll out on June 2.
