Much of the Internet's frustration stems from the idea that the costumes sported by the Amazons in Wonder Woman-painstakingly researched and created to be battle-ready and practical, highlighting their strong bodies without making them the entire focus of the ensemble-have been "updated" by a male director and a male costume designer.
After it was noted that the Amazons in Justice League were sporting far skimpier outfits than they'd worn on Themyscira in Wonder Woman, a lot of us let out a long, collective, frustrated sigh. Like Gadot and Affleck, Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) spent time posing for photos with fans, but also largely avoided the press (a jovial Momoa did horse around with a few bloggers for a moment). This is a culmination of four films that have hit since 2012's Man of Steel, and it follows Wonder Woman's awesome box office and critical performance.
Cyborg (Ray Fisher) wouldn't be left behind as he posed for the camera excellently.
Justice League hits theaters this Friday.
"They are iconic characters", said Roven. "Who is getting really excited to see the new DC movie?" Part of that decision involved hiring Joss Whedon to come in and rewrite sections of the film's screenplay, and ultimately Whedon stepped into the director's chair to direct reshoots when original director Zack Snyder stepped away due to a death in the family. Neither director was on hand at the premiere, but Snyder's wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder represented the family at the event. Perhaps that's why the show actually has the most to say during its interstitial interview sequences.
Warner Bros. has a number of DC films in the works, including James Wan's Aquaman (Dec. 21, 2018), David F. Sandberg's Shazam! and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 2 (Nov. 1, 2019). This isn't a new formula for comic books, films or TV shows.
"We're planning to start production on Wonder Woman 2", Roven said of what's on his upcoming plate. Justice League is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. "I'm an athlete first, right?"
Luckily for Man of Steel fans, Superman actor Henry Cavill has confirmed that he does, in fact, have a part in the movie. "It felt a little more glamorous, if anything, because we had bigger, handsome hair, which I loved", she said.
