Justice League Hopes to Redeem Batman v Superman

For many fans, Justice League is a test-the-waters movie, particularly since the first one where we saw a slight team-up of the Big Three didn't work out so well in Batman v Superman.

And while skeptics will be skeptics, those who have seen and are part of the production team believe that it's a story that's worth taking the franchise to an entirely different level. Take for Second Unit Director Damon Caro, for example.


In an interview with Heroic Hollywood, Caro touched on some of the points that Justice League will aim to deliver as a movie. He shared that BvS wasn't supposed to have much humor, because it's the darkness before the dawn, as they say.

"If you play your story all at one level, there are no peaks and valleys, there's no life. The great stories, the Greek tragedies, even life we have to be knocked down before we can build our way up. Justice League was always the rebirth of hope and the rise. People try to say that it's a response to the backlash, and I'd definitely say that criticisms were heard, but it's not like we threw everything out and started with a blank slate."

Caro even compares it to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, where we obviously see a lot of trouble brewing, which led to a darker feel for the movie before things get better with Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

It seems that the cast and crew all emphasize this particular sentiment of Justice League being a rebirth of hope in many ways. As a DC fan myself, I do hope this is the real deal. We've had enough dips in mood and story—it's about time we see that peak.

Justice League will be out in theaters on Nov. 16.
