That would be like someone saying “that fight scene was like the hallway scene in Spike Lee’s Oldboy”.

And meanwhile this movie will be hot garbage.
Thank you.

It's OK, as long as we can agree that Dave Matthews' All Along the Watchtower was fuckin' sweet in Watchmen.

Off the top of my head the last time "Heroes" was used in a big budget movie marketing plan it was Godzilla 98. Just sayin.

The Lois/Clark dream sequence looks great. The rest looks horrible.

I don’t share the sentiment for “the rest”, but I definitely agree the Lois/Clark dream sequence looks great. I’ve watched it twice already and get chills when they cut to the coffin scene.

Cyborg looks like bad cosplay.
The Flash sounds like an annoying millenial with Asperger's.

the rest looks decent.

I think it looks fun, and if anything Gadot's grin at 2:28 sells the whole damn thing anyway. It doesn't matter what comprises the rest of the trailer, more Wonder Woman sells it.

Yep. Worth it just for that shot. Otherwise, more of the same from the last one. Action shots! Actions shots! Look at all these action shots of characters you haven't met!

And I had to laugh that they basically open this with a shot of Superman SMILING. Sorry, there's no retconning how fucking horrible your version of Superman was for 2 movies regardless how man times Bruce Wayne says it in the trailers.

Still gonna see it, with Hades-spinning-core-of-the-earth level of expectation.

Yeah, who would've guess Gadot would fucking rock so hard. It's like there is a glow around her 100% of the time.

Still looks mediocre to me. Agree with most others, Cyborg and Flash look terrible, Wonder Woman and potentially Aquaman look like highlights.

I think this looks fine. It will be an improvement over BVS so that will already be a win. I like BVS so I am probably more open minded about this.

Jesse Eisenberg Still Listed In ‘Justice League’ Cast As Lex Luthor

After reports several weeks ago that his scenes were all cut from the still-in-post-production Justice League, it appears that Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor is still listed among the cast for the fall DC superhero film.

According to an official listing on the Warner Bros. UK website, Jesse Eisenberg is still a part of the film, listed between Willem Dafoe and Jeremy Irons. This has prompted many to question whether Lex Luthor will be a part of Justice League after the reliable reports of his scenes being cut, or that the cast listing for the website is yet to be updated to correspond with the final cut of the film, one which is not done at this time.

I'm guessing the bolded part. Everything I've read seems like Whedon is streamlining the story and removing excess characters like Eisenberg and Clemons (as Iris West).

^ Is it possible Eisenberg’s name is left in the credits for contractual reasons?

Or possible post credit sequence?

For the record I've never said I want these movies to be bad they just are bad. I like DC and most of these characters (though I've never been a Cyborg fan). The fact that the films thus far have been bad (barring Wonder Woman which is good but overrated in my honest opinion) and my complaints have mostly been validated isn't really my fault. Until they prove me wrong I'm going with my gut and calling shit when I see it.

I'm okay with your point, it just feels forced.
