Ben Affleck Plays The DCEU's Batman For His Son

Adjust Comment Print

Not long after the discovery, fans created an uproar on social media, noting that the costumes in Justice League (designed by a man, in a film directed by a man) sexualized the female actors, while in Wonder Woman (directed by a woman, with costumes designed by a woman) did not appear overtly sexual.

Hopefully Justice League is a big success and WB green lights more DCEU movies, which would include Man of Steel 2. Their attempts to launch a cinematic universe of their own, rivaling Marvel in the process, has been hit or miss, even more so when trying to comprehend their upcoming slate of films that take place in different timelines, universes, etc.

Gal Gadot's words to The Toronto Sun also reflect the approach WB is taking with Justice League and their willingness to learn from the past.

Now, on to the list.


"Feel uncomfortable? You should", the post continues.

While this doesn't give us too much insight into the character himself, it does speak to the more simplified approach this film is taking. When that villain comes up in conversation, it's clear Miller's already thinking sequel: "Shout out to Starro the Conquerer and let him know we're still coming for him, should he ever choose to invade Earth once again". One box was given to mankind, one to the Amazonians (Wonder Woman's tribe), and one to the Atlanteans (Aquaman's tribe).

The actor, who was originally on board to direct the Batman-focused DC film, went on to discuss his eventual departure from the role, saying, "You don't do it forever, so I want to find a graceful and cool way to segue out of it". End-credits scenes, which Justice League has, are for teasing the future.

The 45-year-old star told USA Today newspaper: "We certainly are in need of heroes in 2017". This was not only my first voyage into the world of this sort of story, but it was also my first immersion into a lot of certain stuff - the training, the visual effects work - that this sort of movie entailed.

Adds Gadot: "People planned on making this movie 10 years ago, and even 20 years ago, and it just never happened". "It was delightful, I felt deeply and truly welcomed".
