I don't think round table negotiations are what people are going to want from a superman film, that would be ridiculous

12 Angry men with superheroes instead of uncaring jurors

Great idea!

Think the Borg makeup in Next Gen was better than Cyborg.

Don't like the flash's suit at all, it looks like it's been ripped from Injustice.

Early footage but it certainly looks more fun than BvS. Which I'm sure is the intention given that films reception.

Looks absolutely terrible. They've clearly seen the comedy in the Avengers films and tried to force it in here. It doesn't work with the dark look.

I don't hate it and liked it better than i thought it would, but it seems like it needs some work.

I agree Cyborg looks a little cheap but i haven't got an issue with flash's suit at all. In regards to Flash he looks a lot better than he did in the brief CCTV clip in BvS, in which he looks more like a dirty hobo but here he looks a lot better.

It's early days so all this can be fixed and with the slight stumble (and yes for me it was only a stumble) with BvS it looks like the DC universe is coming together nicely. Odd through that Wonder Woman looks fantastic in her own movie but here she looks more like she did in BvS.

Completely underwhelming trailer, the last line that's supposed to get us excited, "I hear that you can talk to fish".

Really.

Shame because Jason Momoa is always cool and Ezra Miller is usually a blast.
Hoping this won't be as awful as the trailer suggests, and that they need to hire a better editor to create their trailers if they have better material for the film.

There's more humour and colour in that two minute reel than there was in the whole of BvS, so at least we know they're taking criticism on board. Yes, the footage does look ropey, but the film isn't out until November next year. This is an unusually early tease we've been treated to.

It's a joke. It's not supposed to get us excited exactly. Aquaman gets a lot of stick because his superpower is that he communicates with sea creatures and rides a giant seahorse.

Does anyone think Ben Affleck's voice does not sound like he did in BVS when playing Bruce Wayne?

Yes I understood, did you find it funny, even amusing? I don't know, perhaps I simply want it to be better, sounded really weak to me.

I thought it was pretty amusing, but it's very meta humour. If it didn't have a raging manbeast like Jason Momoa in the role, it wouldn't have worked. Maybe it'll feel less forced in the context of the film (if it doesn't get cut, that is).

It's much more promising than any of the early BvS stuff we were treated to.

And as AKPiggot says it's just a VERY early tease. So I'm finding it hard to be too critical. I think it's very likely that it was put out to try and combat some of the negative reaction to BvS.

I found it a little amusing yeah, it was Bruce Wayne having a dig at his superpower.

I wish Affleck wasn't joking so much; he should be the totally straight guy. With everyone else being lighter (except Superman, who just isn't as straight as Batman).
I'm pretty sure in the comics, the Justice League devote a day to trying to get Wayne/Batman to crack a smile.
Other-than-that, thought it looked pretty good.

I didn't really see Affleck as "joking", but using his public Bruce Wayne persona rather than his Batman one (which, thinking about it, only really makes sense when he's meeting Arthur Curry, as it's in a public place).

I think repeatedly over-using the opening riff to Icky Thump for slightly comedic effect gives the reel a lightness we won't see in the actual movie.

Oh look Humour! - Cyborg looks a bit wonky in the effects department at the moment
