Today is a good day for DC fanboys. I’m a DC fan myself, even more than Marvel. However, I have to admit that Marvel is still king of comic book movies at the moment. But it looks like DC is redeeming themselves.
And I’m also a huge Batman fan. At home, I have plenty of DC comic books, and some Marvel ones too. And most of my DC comic books are, in fact, Batman stories. So yeah, I’m really excited about the new Batman film!
A lot of cool trailers were dropped today, and I just had to share my thoughts through this blog.
The Batman Teaser Trailer
This is the first trailer, where I want to share my thoughts. Before watching this, I wasn’t sure about his mask. I thought it looked weird, however, now that I see it in film. It’s actually really awesome. He just looks terrific. I’m so in love with the suit. Also according to Matt Reeves, he’s been Batman for two years. So it’s a very young Batman. Therefore his design for his suit makes total sense.
Straight from the start, the tone is set to be very dark. Even darker than Nolan’s trilogy. That quickly sells me, who loves comic book films with a darker tone.
And oh boy, Robert Pattinson just blew all the doubts away. Some say that he looks like Nightwing without the suit. And I get it. However, the anger in his eyes is more like Batman. I have to say that I still want to hear him talk as Bruce Wayne. As Batman, he looks awesome. I really got goosebumps by the first glimpse. And especially the fight scene where he said, “I’m Vengeance.” How insane was that scene, and what a great voice.
I can already see the inspiration from the Graphic Novel “The Long Halloween.” This is definitely going to be a sort of investigation movie with the Caped Crusader. And I’m going to read that story again. We really needed a detective film!
We also get to see a glimpse of Catwoman. I can’t share my thoughts on her yet, besides that, she looks great. However, I need to see more about her. I’m also wondering how the Riddler and Penguin are going to play in this. Well, I’m guessing those riddles are coming for the Riddler, but is he working with someone else? Like what is going on? I want to know more!
This trailer got me hyped, and I seriously cannot wait until this film gets released. I’ve seen this trailer multiple times. And I probably will rewatch it even more. I have faith in Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson.
Justice League: The Snyder Cut
I’ve already expressed my excitement in another post on the Snyder Cut announcement. In summary, I was excited and still am.
This trailer was okay. It’s more like an announcement to tell us that this is going to be different than the theatrical cut. We get to see new scenes, and it looks promising.
I’m honestly not a fan of the villain’s design. Darkseid looks crappy, in my opinion, so I’m hoping he will be retouched. Zack did improve Steppenwolf. He looks a bit better. But then again, I’m not a fan of how he looks.
At first, I thought the Hallelujah song was a weird choice. On the other hand, it kind of makes sense. It’s like he’s celebrating that this film/series comes to existence. So, in the end, I appreciate the choice.
Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer
I usually don’t watch second trailers, but I made an exception for this one. Mostly because I had a feeling we were going to see Cheetah’s look. And as you all might have the experience, the internet can spoil you all the fun. So, I rather watched the trailer.
I don’t have too much to say about this trailer besides that it looks like fun. I’m still very excited to see it, but it didn’t really change something to my excitement. Furthermore, I prefer the first trailer over this one.
Cheetah CGI looks a bit off to me. So I’m waiting for the movie before I can judge her character. For the moment, I’m not loving it as it looks like a character out of the CATS movie.
First Look at Suicide Squad
I knew a Suicide Squad was in the making, but I didn’t really give it a lot of thought. Now, for the first time, I get to see some stuff about it. And I have to admit that made me excited too.
Having James Gunn is a wonderful addition. I’m still salty at Marvel for firing him for comments he made years ago. And because of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I am more hopeful.
Also, what a huge cast. There are so many new members, however, I’m betting some of them will note make it to the end of the movie.
Black Adam Concept Art
Concept Art is always nice to see what the idea behind the movie is. I still don’t see how he’s an anti-hero though, but it looks interesting.
I’m looking forward to seeing Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam. He really looks the part, and he could even play Shazam if it was handed to him. However, I’m waiting for more as in actual footage.
The idea is good, and that’s already a good start.
