In a handful of months, the world will finally get the live-action take on Justice League it’s been waiting for. Ever since the DC Extended Universe got underway with Man of Steel, fans have been waiting for the iconic superhero squad to assemble. Now, the team will make its debut in November when Batman and Wonder Woman recruit various heroes to take on Steppenwolf. In the last month or so, footage from Justice League has slowly been given to fans to appease their need for more blockbuster action sequence. And, now, the film’s cinematographer is fessing up about his favorite shot from the movie.
Over on Instagram, Fabian Wagner shared an image of his favorite shot he filmed during Justice League. The image is one which fans have already seen in the trailer for Justice League, and it features Batman posing atop a cloaked skeletal statue. Yikes!
“No doubt the most fun day I ever had shooting and one of my favourite shots,” Wagner captioned the image.
Looking at the picture, it is hard to deny how sweet the still looks. Not only does the image capture Batman’s gritty aesthetic, but its low angle gives the vigilante a greater sense of power. Viewers have the POV of someone looking up to (or cowering under) Batman, and the hero looks properly intimidating as such.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
