The Justice League movie will follow the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and build DC Cinematic Universe. The movie boasts a huge cast including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder-woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). The movie will be directed by Zack Snyder which entails a great risk as he is considered to be amazing story-teller but a weak storyteller.
One could argue that this is a last attempt to take the DC extended Cinematic universe forward and chart out a strategy to compete against Marvel studios which seemingly is already way ahead of DC in the superhero game. DC strategy is to do an ensemble movie first and then do stand-alone superhero projects, as it doesn’t want to spend much time in building their cinematic universe like Marvel.
Recently, Zack Snyder teased an image of Batman’s cowl and an upper half of cape. The Batman suit has evolved over a period of time from the days of Michael Keaton, George Clooney to Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, there are always upgrades done to the overall aesthetic to make it more appealing and tactical. The costume designer Michael Wilkinson explained the changes done to B-man costume, he said “We’ve come up with a new cowl. It’s very close to the last one, but again new technologies, new materials (now made from polyurethane instead of foam latex), tweaking has allowed us to take that one even further.”
At the end of the Batman v Superman, the Man of Steel was dead and Batman had begun reaching out to the super-powered people to assemble the Justice League. Batman and Wonder Woman need to create an elite team of superheroes to fight a supervillain which has been awakened in the wake of Batman v Superman events, and it may already be too late.
