The ‘Justice League’ Gets Colorful in These New Character Posters
Someday, someone smarter than me — or at least better than me in Photoshop — will create a visual scale of the various Justice League posters, trailers, and images released over the past two years. This scale would also include key moments in the evolution of the DC Cinematic Universe, including the triumphant release of Wonder Woman earlier this year and the announcement that Joss Whedon would be taking over for Zack Snyder in post-production on the film. My guess? This progression of photos will show a clear and marked lightening of the Justice League images, serving as a nice parallel to the shifting conversation around the property itself.
Take this most recent batch of Justice League character posters (via ComingSoon.net):
They’re undeniably great; they’re also a lot more colorful than anything we ever saw around the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The upside of being in production for so long — if you can call it an upside, I suppose — is that Warner Bros. has been able to react effectively in real time to the audience demands from the franchise, and the success of Wonder Woman effectively put a nail in the coffin of the dark and dreary universe that once existed on film. That makes these character posters more than just a bit of marketing; they’re also a calculated creative message meant to show fans that Justice League is going to be a lot different than what they might’ve guessed. Yep, definitely hope someone creates that color chart someday.
Here’s the full plot synopsis for Justice League:
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.
