The Justice League cast (minus Gal Gadot) united at CinemaCon to show off some new footage. Director Zack Snyder came to the stage with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) — as well as The Flash (Ezra Miller) providing a piggyback ride to Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
Wonder Woman was able to lasso up plenty of enthusiasm at CinemaCon on Wednesday with some new footage that included a look at the love story that develops between Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine). Pine and director Patty Jenkins mentioned the love story as an important part of the film when they took the stage in Las Vegas Wednesday night. “It has a Casablanca feel which I don’t think we’ve seen in this universe before,” said Pine.
“There was so much action, which is great, more than even the last,” one said on departing the Wednesday morning screening at Caesars Palace. The seven preceding Fast and Furious films have generated $3.9 billion in worldwide box office with the most recent, Furious 7, taking in a stunning $1.5 billion worldwide. The franchise has joined Jurassic Park as Universal’s most successful.
Stars' separation will be most obvious Wednesday at CinemaCon, where Diesel, Charlize Theron, and the rest of cast will be on hand, but Johnson will not.
