Sigh… I no sooner get through putting up a post praising Warner Brothers for the innovative design of their posters for the upcoming Suicide Squad (2016) and the next thing I run across is this image promoting tonight’s preview for the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and what have we got? Not just the heroes in that “we’re ready for battle pose”, but so much dirt and rock fragment an whatever else that is supposed to be flying around them amidst dark clouds that the heroes are almost lost in the picture. Here, go ahead and take a look:
I mean seriously, the only thing this image makes me wonder (especially in contrast to the bright-yet-jarring images on the S.S. posters) is which group is supposed to be the good guys and which are the bad guys? Of course, maybe that’s supposed to be the commentary here. Is it possible that DC is simply trying to tap into the current zeitgeist and say that the good guys are at times indistinguishable from the bad? If so, they’re certainly on the right track.
Personally, though, I’m just taking it as further indication that this flick is going to be as much of a mess as Man of Steel if not more so.
Ah, well, at least they took the time to also release the logo image for next year’s Wonder Woman solo film at the same time.
Not that that looks all that much more promising.
