There has been much fear and trepidation following the low critical opinion and general bashing that last years Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad received. With Ben Affleck having reportedly stepped down as the director of The Batman and early opinions of Wonder Woman suggesting the movie will do little to win over fans to the DCEU both Warner Bros and DC having been trying to reformulate their schedule of comic book movies in a bid to improve the viability of their fledgling cinematic universe. It seems with the new trailer (below) as if the studio are refocusing their creative energies on this Novembers Justice League, DC's answer to the Avengers, which still remains as Marvel Studios most successful movie to date, commercially.
The ultimate problem with the DCEU is ultimately accessibility. Marvel Studios line-up of superheroes and supervillains are more relatable to most general audiences, whereas DC's gallery of heroes and villains outside their premier characters (Batman, Superman, and the Flash) are a little too fantastic. Even more perplexing is the studio's decision to keep their TV superheroes separate from the movie incarnations. In this regard, Marvel Studios has used its TV serials to explore the lesser known heroes of its stable, while incrementally bolstering the possible pool of heroes they can use.
Regardless, the trailers use of the song Come Together, performed by Godsmack is one of the better trailer music choices.
