Justice League 2017 Copying The Avengers? Here Are 2 Reasons Why

By on

Recently, we have been graced by the Justice League 2017 trailer that was created just for the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). If you have not seen it, check it out below.


In trailer, we follow Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) assembling a team of metahumans to fend off a dangerous external threat. It looked like to be quite eminent too. Wayne is joined by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot, who will have her feature film) in this quest. They recruit Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) in their team. They also came in contact with Cyborg (Victor Stone) looking like they just got out of a pickle together at the end of the trailer.

The trailer looks cool and it pretty much gets fans excited but there is that little unsettling quirk. One thing that fans and media have pointed out is that there seems to be a change of tone in the movie; especially for Batman. It seems a little ?Marvel-ish? as there seems to be parallels in both DC?s Justice League treatment and Marvel?s Avengers treatment. We have found two things.

Bruce Wayne Humor

Ben Affleck Official

Even though Affleck?s Wayne portrayal still has that dark edge to it, it seemed to be curbed in the trailer. We can?t help but see that there is a little Tony Stark in there; an easygoing confidence and quips. Robert Downey Jr.?s Stark portrayal was a big part of the Marvel success. Is DC trying to tap into this much lighter depiction to gain more viewers? Maybe so. It seems connected to the next one.

A Young Barry Allen


Marvel?s Captain America: Civil War we saw a young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting recruited by Tony Stark. It was light hearted and the Spider-Man was portrayed to be a talkative quippy superhero. In the DC Justice League 2017 trailer, it seems that Ezra Miller?s Barry Allen will be that way. Would DC benefit with a younger and funnier version of The Flash? We shall see. So far, it looks pretty cool.

Do you think these are ripoffs or just a natural tendency when characters of different personalities coming together in one movie? Let us know in the comments section below.
