With just a few hours to go until we get the latest trailer for Justice League [watch a teaser here], we have some new comments from stars Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) about the lighter tone of the DC blockbuster compared to previous instalments of the Extended Universe, and the film’s humour and “playful banter”.
“Justice League is a big change tonally because you now have the personalities of all these different characters coming together and it gives you a chance to infuse a lot of humor into the scenes,” states Affleck. “For Bruce, he’s having to open up and play well with other because he knows he needs them ,so while he doesn’t lose sight of how serious the threat is, he’s humanized by the Flash’s earnestness, Diana’s warmth, even Aquaman’s needling.”
“The goal of the team is intense – they have to save the world, after all – but the humor that comes into it from all of these characters trying to work together, some of them with more experience, some with essentially none, results in a lot of laughter and playful banter that I believe audiences will really enjoy,” adds Gadot.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League will reunite Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K.
