'Justice League' Trailer Makes a Splash with Sexy Aquaman and Friends


This week's build-up with teasers and posters for Warner Bros' 'Justice League' culminated in its first full-length trailer on Saturday. It did not disappoint as Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) team up to take on an other-worldly threat. See the thrilling trailer below set to the Beatles' "Come Together."


The trailer opens on a winterized Bruce Wayne on horseback, an ominous warning from Diana "It's already here," a sexy slow-mo shot of Arthur Curry, Barry meeting his dad behind bars, Victor Stone carrying a Mother Box, and more. It's a chockful two-and-a-half-minutes of stylized action that have come to define director Zack Snyder with heavy CGI imagery, dark skies, saturated colors, and eye-popping visuals. What's on screen is all Snyder but the tone seems to have been lightened and the humor in the trailer comes from a surprising source - Batman.


There is so much great stuff in the trailer for fans to disseminate. From Amazons fighting parademons, to Commissioner Gordon's (J.K. Simmons) brief appearance, to probably the one Super Friend that steals the spotlight is Momoa's Aquaman. 


Aquaman has been mocked and derided for decades for everything from his costume to his powers to communicate with sea life, Momoa has redefined him as a hard-drinking badass as though he were a leather-clad biker or something. We see him in action, spearing parademons two at a time to hitching a ride aboard the Batmobile. The depths of coolness are as deep as the ocean when he sees Bruce in costume for the first time, "Dressed as bat. I dig it." It doesn't hurt that with his long locks, tattoos, and muscles, Momoa is easy on the eyes too. 


Aquaman isn't the only one getting his first big screen live-action adaptation. The fan-favorite former Teen Titan from the comics and cartoons is Cyborg. The half-human, half-machine Stone was the test subject of one of his scientist father's experiments that went horribly wrong, resulting in saving his life with special prosthetics and metallic implants. Besides being a genius most of his body parts have been replaced with advanced prosthetics granting him super strength, speed, stamina, the ability to interface with computers, and various tools and equipment within his metal shell including a sonic cannon. 

With Batman recruiting the "others" as they're described in the trailer, a super team is formed to defeat the deadly foe Steppenwolf. Wonder Woman seems to be leading the charge but no sign of Superman who "died" at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Let's hope they keep images of his reappearance a surprise leading up to its release on November 17.

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …
