‘League Up’ With This Brand New ‘Justice League’ Banner
Lost amidst all the hand-wringing and finger-pointing of the Justice League reshoots is the fact that, hey, Warner Bros. is really on top of their advertising game right now. This past Comic-Con featured a slew of new material to get fans excited for the film, including a trailer that really ratcheted up the humor and a new poster directly inspired by some of the classic comic book art by Alex Ross. It appeared that Warner Bros. had decided to go back to the comic books for inspiration in a big way, very much to the benefit of its final product.
And good news: if your one complaint about the new Justice League poster released at Comic-Con was that you wished there could be more like it, then check this out:
Over the weekend, DC Comics (via Heroic Hollywood) released another version of the same character designs, this time ramping up the Alex Ross influence by having our favorite superheroes standing in profile together. It also aligns pretty well with that Comic-Con trailer, emphasizing both the Flash and Wonder Woman and downplaying (a little) Batman. All part of your lighter, brighter, and funnier Justice League, right?
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.
