Superhero movie lovers were in a double treat for this past week. They got to witness two superb trailers of two highly anticipated movies in a span of just a few days, that cater to both DC and Marvel fans. And if you are a fan of both the comics, then it’s a double bonanza for you. On Saturday, we had the visually appealing trailer of Justice League that has blockbuster written all over it. For what is a wet dream for all comic book lovers, Zack Snyder has managed to bring in Batman, Superman, Aquaman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Cyborg in a movie, that is scheduled to release in November, and going by the trailer, the result is going to be badass.
Then sometime back, we got the second trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, that had Disney Marvel and Sony Pictures joining hands to make Peter Parker back in the good books of his fans, after the rather underwhelming The Amazing Spider-Man series. The trailer had some amazing action sequences and more of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, which has never been a bad thing.
Below we have given gist of the two trailers, and we discuss what worked for us and what didn’t. Based on that you have to tell us, which trailer impressed you the most…
After the alien threat mentioned towards the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (and following Superman’s ‘death’), Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) goes on to assemble Earth’s powerful heroes, with the help of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). He goes on to hire Arthur Curry aka Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Barry Allen aka The Flash (Ezra Miller). Together they have to fight a deadly army of parademons.
What worked: The brilliant visuals, the stylized action choreography, the musical pieces, DC finally learning to smile and of course, Aquaman being a rockstar
What didn’t: Dodgy CGI on Cyborg, the super dark tone, and Superman missing from action (come on, just one hint was enough)
Fresh from the exploits in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland), still in high school, wants desperately to be the next Avenger, but Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) advises him to stay grounded (something that man himself never managed to do). Naturally, Spidey’s high ambitions leads to nearly disastrous consequences, that has Iron Man take away his gadgets while also earning a deep enmity with the Vulture (Michael Keaton). Plus, there is a Captain America cameo thrown in.
What worked: The action sequences(with both the ferry and the plane sequences being the standouts), the humour, Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr and a scene stealing Michael Keaton.
What didn’t: The trailer was too spoiler-ish and moved on predictable lines.
