It's almost hard to believe, but we're a little over a month away from the highly anticipated release of Justice League. The upcoming DC team up movie will introduce a handful of new heroes, while also bringing back the DC trinity from their first go in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But the film has not been without its share of drama, as director Zack Snyder had to depart the project after a family tragedy. The Avengers and Buffy The Vampire Slayer director Joss Whedon took over to finish the project, and now Ben Affleck has revealed what Whedon brought to the film.
Well, I just got chills. Ben Affleck's comments to SFX Magazine (via Comic Book) seems to tease a more character driven story than past DCEU installments. Joss Whedon and Zack Snyder's combined perspectives will provide a great mixture of action and heart, which is exactly what the DC Extended Universe is in dire need for.
Because while Zack Snyder always delivers visually stunning blockbusters, sometimes the characters can get a bit lost. This can surely be seen in Batman v Superman, where Clark Kent was basically a non-entity storywise. He tried to do some good and fought bad guys, but we still don't really know who the Man of Steel is.
But Joss Whedon is known for crafting interesting and funny characters in is projects. His work in The Avengers successfully set up the motley crew of heroes and their quirks, and eventually united the team in the film's fantastic final battle. If he's able to give the same attention to the members of the Justice League, then the film might finally be Zack Snyder's first win.
