For those of you who don’t know, the Justice League is a team of superheroes from the DC universe. In a recent interview, Michael McElhatton said, “There’s probably going to be a lot more humor in it, I think would probably be the main difference compared to the previous one.”
McElhatton talked about the “big” opening scene that he filmed “was pretty dark, actually, in its tone.” He added: ”But in a good way. I quite like that, and it wasn’t comic book-y. But I think you can thread a certain amount of humor through it, which maybe the previous one was lacking.”
