Justice League: First Reactions Are Really Positive

Epic is the word they use!
There won’t be a Rotten Tomatoes review for a while on Justice League, but an early screener was already played. The test screening was maybe supposed to be a bit secret but didn't wind up staying that way. Those who attended the screening had to sign very strict non-disclosure agreements, so they are not allowed to post their reactions online. However, Batman-News.com spoke to multiple people who were in attendance at the test screenings, and the reactions were all enthusiastic:
Justice League is meant to be a launching pad for a massive expansion of the DCEU, which currently has a plethora of films in different stages of development. Aquaman‘s solo outing will be the next to hit theaters in 2018, with Shazam!, Green Lantern Corps, and a Wonder Woman sequel also on the way. There’s also something of a backlog of potential entries that haven’t been given official release dates yet, like Matt Reeves’ solo Batman film, Flashpoint, and Gotham City Sirens. If Justice League ends up being the success Warner Bros. is hoping for, it seems a safe bet production on many of those films will ramp up considerably. There’s still a long way to go before we know the film’s fate, but the initial reactions are an encouraging sign.
Justice League has undergone some major shakeups behind the scenes. Back in May, Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder left the project midway following the tragic death of his daughter. He was replaced by Avengers filmmaker Joss Whedon, who reportedly oversaw extensive reshoots. Opening Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
