Kevin Smith says fans tuning into his CW special tonight, “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League,” will find themselves suitably rewarded. The director and longtime DC Comics fan promises that in addition to the advertised all-new “Suicide Squad” trailer debut, the network will share new footage from the upcoming superhero slugfest “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and the first glimpse of video from the currently-filming “Wonder Woman.”
“They show footage, new footage of ‘Batman v Superman,’ they show footage from the Wonder Woman movie that they’re shooting right now, which includes shots of Wonder Woman in action doing some shit you’ve never seen before,” Smith exudes on the latest episode of his and co-host Marc Bernardin’s podsast, “Fat Man on Batman.” “Then the whole fucking thing wraps up with the debut of the Suicide Squad trailer.”
“I think this is [Warner Bros.’] ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,'” Smith also said of the villain-led film. “It’s going to be a sneak, fucking stealth hit… It’s going to permeate beyond [comic book fans’] world.”
“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now” airs on The CW Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 9 p.m/8 p.m. Central, followed by “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League” at 9:30.
