We’re tempted to call this week “DC Christmas” because of how many gifts we’ve been given about the comic company’s upcoming movies. First, we got not one, but TWO new drool-worthy posters for Suicide Squad, which premieres this August. Then, we got a beautiful new trailer for the same movie, filled with lots of sure-to-be-oft-quoted lines (mostly from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, of course, although I might be a little biased) and complete with Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” playing delightfully creepily in the background. Oh, and a first look at Wonder Woman, NO BIG DEAL OR ANYTHING. (Heavy breathing.)
But now that we’ve caught our breaths, it’s time for more: DC Films launched their Facebook page yesterday, so we knew something big had to be coming. And what do you know? Alongside beautiful new material from Suicide Squad and summer 2017’s Wonder Woman, we’ve been given new concept art for Justice League Part 1, slated for a November 2017 release. COMMENCE SCREAMING.
From left to right, the image depicts Aquaman, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, the art doesn’t reveal too much about the film or the DC cinematic universe aside from the characters’ looks. Additionally, Cyborg looks very similar to his comic-book form, while it looks like the film is going in a bit of a simpler direction with The Flash’s costume.
We can’t wait to see this new team of superheroes take on the baddies of the universe, and learn more about all their origins while we attend midnight showings (in costume, of course). In a world where many people are either Marvel or DC fans and we sometimes feel like we should be choosing a side, all we have to say is, “Bring on ALL THE COMIC-BOOK MOVIES.” What a time to be alive, right?
