Empire Magazine spoke with Ben Affleck about the pressure of such a big film having to tie together so many previous movies. For the actor, he admits that the reception of Wonder Woman earlier this year means that Justice League doesn’t have to carry all the weight of the DC cinematic universe: “It maybe takes a bit of pressure off of this movie in terms of needing to define the DC Universe. It doesn’t feel like the whole world is riding on our shoulders so much”.
Part of that cover story, Empire unveiled several new stills from the upcoming Justice League, along with more in depth information behind the scenes details about the film’s development. Affleck claimed that Justice League is the most “massive” project he’s ever worked on, visually-speaking, while the rest of the cast have reiterated that the final film will very much represent Zack Snyder’s original vision. It seems that the success of Wonder Woman earlier this year also eased a lot of the pressure off the shoulders of Justice League‘s cast and crew
of course, that doesn’t mean Justice League will be a Wonder Woman movie. While she’ll play her large role, the success of Diana’s solo film won’t hijack the narrative of the DC team outing. Instead, Justice League will shed new light on Wonder Woman and Batman while also introducing the newbies Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman.
Justice League will unite the league for the first time in the DCEU on November 11th, 2017. Justice League currently has a 4.18 out of 5 on ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the third most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com users.
