Official Justice League synopsis is the final DC cherry on top today

By now, I'm sure you brought yourself up to speed on all the information that's been uncovered on the set of JUSTICE LEAGUE (Chris Bumbray has the lowdown on everything you need to know, if for some reason you haven't yet). And while this certainly felt like damage control by Warner Bros. and everyone involved with the film to change the conversation from one of pessimism to hope following the chilly reception for BATMAN V SUPERMAN, people in large volume certainly are a bit more enthusiastic about what they're hearing now than they were a couple months ago. Mission accomplished. Perceptions have been changed, which is exactly what they wanted and needed to do.

And with these sprinkles of goodness now filling up the DC Cinematic Universe chatter, Warner Bros. decided not to stop there while controlling the news cycle today and have plopped down a nice fat juicy cherry on top of everything else - an official synopsis for JUSTICE LEAGUE. It may not seem like much extra, when compared to the wealth of knowledge you gained earlier... but it's just another tidbit the studio can offer up in order to maintain momentum and keep fans talking about their movie in favorable fashion. 

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash -— it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Is it really too late? Well, I guess the only way to raise the stakes on a film like this, which already has a ton more movies scheduled to follow, is to tease that the inevitable saving of the day might not come about as smoothly as possible. There may be some catastrophe as the heroes get their shit together, prompting them to band together even more solidly once things really look awful. Plus, there is the downplaying of Superman there, which we already learned might be a big part of how JUSTICE LEAGUE works. 

The DC Cinematic Universe is interesting once again... That's for sure.

"DC Cinematic Universe is interesting once again... " Yeah not at all

So let's make a Justice League movie where we already killed off Superman. There is nothing this universe can do to undo the shit that was the last two superman movies. This isn't interesting, its just bullshit piled onto bullshit to cover up how horrible this universe evolved. Just take Snyder away from this Universe and keep him far away, put Affleck behind the camera to at least give this some sort of credibility. But really they are playing with half a deck of cards at this point due to how

Listen how can you not be interested in this. Course correction etc. They are trying to appease fans and the general public. Its tough doing that. As long as its a cohesive script.

How can we not be interested in this? The answers easy: Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. That's like asking how people can't be pumped for Transformers 3 after numbers 1 & 2.

I gotta agree with Guy, how many times can we see Snyder ruin this franchise? MoS was terrible, BvS was almost worse because it ruined even more characters. You wouldn't watch Transformers 3 after seeing how bad the first two were. Why would anyone want to see another horrible DC movie. There is no "course correction" in play here. We know what we are going to get, a horrible movie where everyone acts like Batman and Batman acts like some PTSD asshole where the plot can only be moved along by a

I'm Pumped

I just don't get all the hate for 'BvS'. I liked Man of Steel, even more so after seeing Batman V Superman. I can't wait for the ultimate edition, and am fully onboard for Snyder's Justice League. My only fear is that they go too light in tone by trying to please the loudest haters.

See, if a movie is made, there will always be at least one person who likes it. He might go against the grain, be called names, and he just doesn't care. I applaud you sir because you are that person who likes Snyder movies. He has one fan, you. Congrats.

@MechaFanboy LOL thank you? But to be fair, Snyder has his misses in my books too, specifically '300' and 'Sucker Punch'

I can't see how anyone has an ounce of optimism for this movie. All of my hope died out after Man of Steel. Anyone who's still hoping for something good after BvS is lying to themselves to the point of being delusional.

I think the majority of us are pretty much against Snyder and his act of treason upon the DC Universe. BvS was a huge loss for WB Studios who expected to make 3x as much as it did (since it hardly made any money back at all).
