Gal Gadot Online

We are less than a week out from the eagerly anticipated DC superhero team-up film, Justice League. Much of the talk up to this point has been about the heroes, and how this film will set up the DC cinematic universe for the future, not so much on the villain. The marketing itself has been rather conservative, opting not to show much of Steppenwolf, and instead focusing on the heroes who will anchor WB’s universe. This is a stark contrast to the Doomsday reveal in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice promotion. But these heroes must be brought together to face a common threat and Wonder Woman actress, Gal Gadot, explained why Steppenwolf is the perfect villain for Justice League.

When you simplify a story, especially the ones we’re exploring in the Justice League, where there’s so much going on with the villain and the end of the world and the fact that we’re introducing three new characters, I think it was a smart call to limit the villain to just one person.

While this doesn’t give us too much insight into the character himself, it does speak to the more simplified approach this film is taking. With a cosmic and world-ending threat to face, and Superman currently deceased, it is best to go all-in on Steppenwolf instead of having multiple villains, or spending half the movie planting seeds for future foes. This should allow Steppenwolf to really own his role in the film, and with veteran actor Ciarán Hinds portraying the New God, he should come off as a compelling and very real threat. It also should give the new heroes, Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg room to be introduced to the audience and for the super friends to develop as a team.

Gal Gadot’s words to The Toronto Sun also reflect the approach WB is taking with Justice League and their willingness to learn from the past. Overstuffing villains into a film and focusing too much on world-building has weakened superhero films from all the studios who have made them. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shoehorned in metahuman files on a computer, Spider-Man 3 had three villains and did none of them justice, and Avengers: Age of Ultron was too concerned with setting up the future that it neglected the present. WB is clearly aiming for a fun and tight film, given the runtime, so choosing to focus on one villain is the smart approach. End-credits scenes, which Justice League has, are for teasing the future.

The early reactions are in and it seems that Justice League continues down the path laid out by Wonder Woman and proves to be a tonally fun film with breakout performances. Justice League opens in theaters on November 17th, so don’t forget to pre-order your tickets for opening weekend.

Collider released a video clip from the press conference that the cast participated in last week in London.

With Warner Bros.’ Justice League opening next week, a few days ago I got to participate in a fun press conference in London with Gal Gadot (wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and producers Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder.

As you can see in the video, the group talked about what it was like when everyone was together for the first time in their costumes, what Ezra Miller and Jason Moma stole from set, if the set was different when Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon were each directing, the message of Justice League and why it’s important in 2017, how Batman needs to adjust his way of operating due to the external threats on the planet, what they each hope fans take away from watching the movie, and a lot more. In addition, you can see Ezra Miller do a Batman impression and towards the end make sure to see Ben Affleck talk about how if Superman had Henry Cavill’s porn moustache in Batman v Superman he would have “won a lot quicker.” Justice League also stars Amy Adams, J.K. Simmons, Diane Lane, Joe Morton and Ciaran Hinds as the main baddie, Steppenwolf.
