6 Reasons Why Justice League Is The Superhero Movie Event Of The Year

Before Justice League hits cinemas, here’s six reasons why it will be the superhero movie of 2017
This year’s most anticipated superhero movie event is just around the corner and fan chatter is escalating to fever pitch. Before it hits cinemas across the globe in November, we’ve got six more reasons why Justice League is THE superhero movie of 2017:

1. It’s the A-list of heroes
Never before have such top-tier superheroes been together in the same movie: Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash – what a line up! It’s one thing to know and love these characters individually, but seeing how they’ll work together is what fans have been waiting decades for. 

2. The esteemed cast
The cast includes three Oscar winners: Ben Affleck, Jeremy Irons and J.K. Simmons; and three Oscar nominees: Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe and Diane Lane. That’s not including the uber-cool directing talents of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon. Bow down.

3. More Wonder Woman!
Everyone’s favourite appears to be centre-stage in Justice League – and rightly so. Wonder Woman opens the latest trailer in spectacular fashion, exploding through a wall, ready to take on her pivotal role in uniting the League. After the record-breaking success of Wonder Woman earlier this year, expect to see plenty of Diana in JL kicking butt and looking amazeballs.

4. Its anticipation level is officially rated
It currently has a 4.18 out of 5 ComicBook.com ‘User Anticipation’ rating. We’re not even going to ask where the remaining 17 per cent of people think they’ll be on opening day...

5. There’s serious bank involved 
Obviously when you have a movie like Justice League you gotta bring out the big bucks – and Warner Bros. have spared no expense, with the project costing in the vicinity of $220 million. That kind of money buys a lot of awesome. Expect a superhero film at a scale we’ve never experienced before. 

6. Fan frenzy
Fans went nuts after the trailer drop at San Diego Comic-Con in July:

@kaylin_elise: “THE #JusticeLeague TRAILER JUST SAVED ME. MY SKIN IS CLEAR AND 50 YEARS HAVE BEEN ADDED ONTO MY LIFE. NOVEMBER COME FASTER”

@captaindeadpool: “I CANT GET OVER HOW GORGEOUS THAT JUSTICE LEAGUE TRAILER WAS WHAT THE FYCK HONESTLY PROJECT THAT IN THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART”

We couldn’t agree more. Bring on November!
