Star Ben Affleck says that Justice League is one of the most "massive" tentpoles that he's ever worked on, purely in terms of visuals. Like The Avengers before it, this fall's big DC superhero team-up adventure will bring together some of the most popular comic book characters of all time for a mission to save the world. Naturally, marketing for the film has been moving at a quick pace, with only a month and half left until the movie premieres.
Last week, we got our first look at the special Justice League-themed magazine cover for Empire Magazine's big cover story on the film (which will be released in full later this week). Empire's coverage will also include a number of high-resolution images from the film that show the League as they battle Steppenwolf's Parademon army on the big screen, scanned versions of which are now online. Now, additional details from Empire's cover story on the film have emerged, too.
As part of their big cover story on Justice League, Empire (via CBM) has new details on the size and scope of the film. Speaking with Affleck about the production and narrative of the movie, the actor teased nothing short of an epic when the tentpole arrives in theaters:
"The movie's bigger in scale than any movie I've been involved with in my career. It feels massive in terms of the visual elements. That's something that Zack is really good at. That will be admired."
While Affleck has certainly worked on some big movies before, it's no surprise that Justice League is unlike anything he's experienced. Even last year's Batman v Superman will likely pale in comparison when it comes to the sheer breadth of Justice League. And Affleck is certainly correct in his assessment that Snyder is a pro at staging visual spectacle. Hopefully, there's some worthy story and characters underneath it all.
As we approach the release of the film, we're also learning more and more about Superman's return. Though he's been featured in some of the ancillary marketing, he's yet to appear in any Justice League images or trailers. That could change anytime, however, as more hints are emerging regarding the film's version of the Man of Steel. The latest comes in the form of merchandise for the film, which once again hints that Clark Kent will don his infamous black suit when he returns from the dead. With Justice League right around the corner, we won't have to wait much longer to learn if these rumors are true.
