Three Superhero Movie Trailer Reviews from DC FanDome

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Since we’re in trailer mode today, let me share with you some thoughts on three movie trailers released from the recent DC FanDome event this year. I know there are movie trailers for films like ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Black Adam’, but I’m not really interested in those particular movies yet.

For now, let me share with you my thoughts on the new trailers for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, ‘Justice League: The Synder Cut’ and ‘The Batman’. These movies are of particular interest to me since DC superheroes like Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman appeal to me and I do get excited about them.

Let’s get started!


Here’s the new trailer for:

‘WONDER WOMAN 1984’

Now I’ve already done a review on a trailer for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ for my blog, so it’s fair that I check out this new trailer to find out more about what the film’s going to be like. This film is now expected to be released on October 2, 2020. Let’s hope it’ll happen whether at cinemas or on digital.

The film will have Gal Gadot back as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman as well as Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. From watching the trailer, it looks pretty exciting. I’m also getting positive reassurance that the love story between Diana and Steve will continue to blossom. How Steve returned, I don’t know.

It was also intriguing to see more confrontation between Wonder Woman and Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah, one of the villains of the movie, compared to what was seen in the other trailer I saw. We actually do see Barbara as the Cheetah herself once fighting Wonder Woman.

Like Diana, I wonder what happened to her. Also that gold ‘archangel’-like outfit that Diana wears in the movie may improve on me. I’m guessing the traditional Wonder Woman outfit will be in most of the film whilst the gold outfit will be at the end. I also guess Diana’s scenes as a girl will be at the film’s start.

I’ve also just realised that Pedro Pascal, who plays Maxwell Lord, the other villain of the movie, played the Mandalorian in ‘The Mandalorian’ web TV series on Disney+. And I’ve just seen it recently. I’ll be looking at Maxwell Lord in a pretty different light once I see ‘Wonder Woman 1984’.


And now, here’s the teaser trailer for:

‘JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE SYNDER CUT’

This one’s a bit interesting. I saw ‘Justice League’ at the cinema back in November 2017. I had no idea there were behind-the-scenes dramas in the making of this film. Director Zack Synder had a family tragedy and Joss Whedon, who had directed the first two ‘Avengers’ films in the ‘MCU’, took over.

I heard rumours speculating that there would be a new version of ‘Justice League’ directed by Zack Synder – affectionately called ‘The Synder Cut’, with a brand-new edit of the film and new CGI effects. I didn’t take it seriously at first but the more I heard people talk about, it became a reality. 🙂

I didn’t mind ‘Justice League’ when I first saw it at the cinema, but looking back I don’t think it was that great a movie. So maybe the Synder cut of the film will be better compared to the original theatrical release. Or maybe not! I don’t know. It should be very fascinating to find out, shouldn’t it?

‘Justice League: The Synder Cut’ is expected to be released on HBO only sometime in 2021. When that’ll be, I don’t know. I don’t know if I’ll subscribe to HBO just to watch the movie for that. Maybe I’ll wait until it gets released on Google Play or DVD/Blu-ray. I hope I’ll get to see the new cut soon. 🙂

From watching the trailer, it does look to be impressive. It has the actors who were in the original ‘Justice League’ back such as Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wnder Woman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. What will be different in tone and the characters’ development in the new cut compared to the original? 😐


And finally, here’s the teaser trailer for:

‘THE BATMAN’

Over the years, there have been many versions of Batman in movies. Some of you have your favourites. Mine are Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer. 😀 When the announcement was made that Robert Pattison was being cast to play Batman in Matt Reeves’ new film, I didn’t really know how to react to that news. 😐

I didn’t know who Robert Pattison was and I’ve never seen the ‘Twilight’ films. Most of the reactions I’ve heard from people have been negative against Robert Pattison’s casting. But, I’m willing to be open-minded. I’d like to think ‘The Batman’ film coming out in October 2021 will be a very good movie.

Judging by the teaser trailer, it does look to be promising. I don’t think it is part of the ‘DC Extended Universe’ and I’m imagining it to exist as its own continuity. That’s fine for me. I’m open to a new continuity with Robert Pattison as Batman. I wonder if he’ll face Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker though. 😀

The movie does seem to be darker and grittier according to the teaser trailer. It might match to ‘The Dark Knight Trilogy’ of movies or be darker than that. As well as Robert Pattison as Batman, the film will also feature Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman; Paul Dano as Edward Nahston/Riddler and Colin Farrell as Oswald ‘Oz’ Cobblepot/Penquin, which should be exciting to see.

There’s also Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. The film is ‘currently in production’ according to the teaser trailer, but hopefully the film will be out by the time October 2021 comes. Otherwise, ‘The Batman’ does look to be a promising film for the Dark Knight.


So, those are my thoughts on these three upcoming DC superhero movies I’m looking forward to seeing. Whether I’ll see them online or at cinemas, only time will tell! I hope my predictions on these films will come true and that they’ll be great to watch. If not, then I hope I’ll be entertained anyway.

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

  1. Looking forward to all three films especially The Batman, after watching the trailer I’m confident Robert Patterson will pull it off as Batman, i like the tone & vibe the movie portrayed it captures the dark, gritty crime ridden streets of Gotham & finally we get a Riddler villain actor who can act & not pull stupid faces & ham up the screen in every scene he’s in (yes i mean you Jim smug Carrey).

    Justice League is 4 hours long, Snyder shot the footage but his daughter died & he ceased work on the final cut, only now is he going back to give his true vision of the movie & Cavill shot new scenes probably to replace the awful cgi to cover his moustache during JL reshoots.

    WW 1984, Gal Gadot…..enough said another future Mrs Timelord in waiting not keen on gold armour though i prefer traditional costume.

    • Wow! Even when I didn’t mention Jim Carrey in my reaction to ‘The Batman’ film trailer, you went nuts about him. 😀 But yeah, I’m hoping ‘The Batman’ with Robert Patterson will turn out to be a good film in the end. It looks promising in the trailer.

      Really?! 4 hours! A lot must’ve been cut from the final version of ‘Justice League’ when it was taken over by Joss Whedon. Sad about Zack Synder’s daughter’s death. I look forward to this new version of ‘Justice League’ especially with the new material featuring Henry Cavill as Superman. It’s only until after I saw the movie that I realised Henry Cavill had his face CGIed to replace the moustache he had for ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’.

      Yeah the traditional outfit for Wonder Woman is better than the golden one. I hope the gold outfit won’t be what she wears for the rest of her time as a superhero. Hopefully not considering ‘WW 1984’ is set before ‘BvS’ and ‘JL’.

      Many thanks for your comments, Simon.

  2. I loved the opening to Batman Forever i thought this be great movie, Val Kilmer great in role nice opening fight scene & then HE appears….as soon as he said “Caffeine will kill you” i knew this was going to become less Batman & more the Jim Carrey Show.

    What’s more annoying when brought the 2 disc uncut edition longer fights & showed deleted scenes which focused on Bruce Wayne conflict about being Batman which annoyed me even more so because they were about the character of BRUCE WAYNE NOT JIM CARREY RIDDLER.

    I can’t stand him in the role every scene he in is cringeworthy face gurning overcting, he ruined what could’ve been a excellent Batman movie, yes I’m still angry 25 yrs on.

    I need lie down in zero room & do some meditation, (rubs temples) “Jim Carrey don’t exist”

    • I think everyone knows how much you hate Jim Carrey’s Riddler in ‘Batman Forever’ the way you’ve ranted about him. Hehe! 😀

      I’m looking forward to doing my ‘Jim Carrey Film Review Season’ sometime soon, looking at ‘Liar Lair’, ‘Bruce Almighty’, ‘The Cable Guy’ and ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’. 😀
