You could use a lot of words to describe last month’s “Justice League” trailer, however “colorful” would not be one. YouTuber Darth Blender has set out to remedy this.
With the growing trend of giving current day trailers retro looks, Darth Blender gives Zack Snyder’s grey-scaled blockbuster the “Super Friends” treatment. Watch the parody below, but be warned, it’s rated “NG,” for nerd and geek audiences only:
The classic “Super Friends” cartoon ran throughout the 70’s and 80’s. While the real “Justice League” trailer includes cutting-edge special effects and, of course, Ben Affleck, this trailer offers perfect imitations of the “Super Friends” title card graphics, The Flash speeding away without seemingly moving any of his limbs, and Aquaman riding on his seahorse, Storm. Most may have forgotten that Cyborg was in the series (he didn’t join the Super Friends until the final seasons of the show), but that didn’t stop Darth Blender from including him and his electrical plug-hand glory.
If this particular parody trailer doesn’t tickle your sardonic fancy, Darth Blender’s channel has plenty of other offerings, including the following:
Starring 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, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, “Justice League” premieres November 17th.
