Looking awesome .
It's trailer time. The movie is written by Ernie Altbacker & Mairghread Scott, and directed by Matt Peters & Christina Sotta. Unsurprisingly, it's rated R.
At least it seems like they take Batman out fairly early into the story...Trailer looks fantastic.
However, I will say this. DC will not bet on anyone outside of Superman and Batman for their direct to video movies.
Not Wonder Woman, not the Flash, not Green Lantern, not Martian Manhunter, all of whom are extremely popular characters.
Yet they are willing to bet on...John Constantine.
(A character I didn't even know prior to JL: Dark).
Not to mention it's been kind of the defining aspect of Tucker's tenure with the DTV line.In that shot with Constantine, we see a bunch of characters from Flashpoint Paradox, so the timeline is being messed with. The promotional narrative truly seems to be suggesting the end of this universe, but I guess we'll see.
I still doubt they'll throw out this whole continuity while sales are still (mostly) strong.
Could be that, or the seal becomes weaker after the heroes lose .Wonder what happened to Raven, she look so gaunt in the I guess "time skip." It would crazy if her last resort plan is to unleash Trigon on Apokolips.
Maybe he switches sides once Darkseid "wins," wanting to initially join the winning team only to come around to help the heroes when the resistance comes a calling .Looks like Lex sides with Darkseid. In later shots, the League's fighting troops with his Lexcorp logo on their arm patches.
Definitely looks like they're using Vic somehow .Hmm, I've been wondering how they managed to generate Boom Tubes again after Cyborg blocked them in War. Perhaps, they figured out a way to hack him beneath his notice and it comes to light in this movie.
I just noticed that too. Is it made of lightning ?Maybe a Doomsdaydemon sliced up Shazam's face but why's his foot glowing?
Well, he seems to hate Superman now so it makes sense to want one .Yeah, looks like Damian took over the rebuilt League of Shadows -- Assassins and Lady Shiva is his second. Neat he took up a Kryptonite sword it seems.
Looking more closely at the scene, Constantine has his hand on Barry's head, so that must be what he uses to find out about Flashpoint, and maybe comes up with the plan to change the timeline.Maybe Flash tries to change time like in TFP but it's a red herring and someone from Apokolips suddenly appears and offs him... then Constantine uses a time spell to finish the task or just figure out what went wrong and what alteration could change the timeline?
I was wondering if we would ever see the Oa and the GLC pop up. Wasn't expecting it to just be when they get blown up .Oh damn, that looked like the Green Lantern's Central Power Battery getting destroyed at the end of the trailer!
Perhaps, or the seal was never going to last that many years no matter what and it was slowly killing her.Could be that, or the seal becomes weaker after the heroes lose .
Sounds very Luthor.Maybe he switches sides once Darkseid "wins," wanting to initially join the winning team only to come around to help the heroes when the resistance comes a calling .
Only because they've been playing My Hero Academia, reminds of when the lead character starting using his power boost on his kicks instead of punching.I just noticed that too. Is it made of lightning ?
Perhaps, or they figured out a loophole like Etrigan will forever be in the "driver's seat" and a Lazarus Pit is part of the new spell they cast.I think this does lend to your theory that they might use a Lazarus Pit to revive Jason Blood...although I think he's probably been dead too long.
I'm still not sure what they think they have that could "destroy" Darkseid. This canon's version seems pretty indestructible aside from his eyeballs. Though there could be a gruesome way of killing him using multiple Boom Tubes. Like Cyborg reprogramming the nature of Boom Tubes to cleave and boom pieces of Darkseid away to distant parts of the universe.I wonder if the pivotal moment is Victor possibly being under Apokolips control ?
Exactly. It's looking to be the worst possible outcomes for several heroes.I was wondering if we would ever see the Oa and the GLC pop up. Wasn't expecting it to just be when they get blown up .
I think that must also be the scene where we see a wounded John Stewart .
