The “Justice League” trailer has hit, and the reaction is mixed at best

Warner Bros/DC Entertainment

The internet went wild over the release of the official Justice League trailer, and it seems like the reaction has been all over the place. If the official Twitter Moment gives you any indication, there’s a camp that’s all about the movie, and a camp that’s not about Zach Snyder’s penchant for muddy blues and dark tones.

If that last sentence didn’t let you know, you can probably tell that I’m in the latter camp. Look, I want to like the movie a lot, but this color scheme doesn’t do anything for me. One thing I learned in art school was that if you take a picture you’ve drawn and you squint your eyes and all you see is one monochromatic color, then you don’t have enough light and dark tones in your piece and you need to add some differentiation STAT. You can do the same with this entire trailer, especially the fight scenes, and all you’d see is blue. I really don’t know what Snyder is trying to pull with this “color palette.”

Three good things we’re getting out of this film are The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. I’ve been a fan of Ezra Miller since The Perks of Being a Wallflower, so I’m excited to see what he’s going to do with this character. I’m also excited to see what Hollywood newcomer Ray Fisher will do with Cyborg who was best defined for me during the character’s role in the Teen Titans cartoon show. And of course, if you’re a person who’s attracted to men and you have a pulse, your probably in the camp that wants that Jason Momoa Aquaman movie to come yesterday. As Jamie of Black Girl Nerds summed up:
