A few weeks ago I was with my friends in the new Batman Lego movie. I was so enthusiastic about the movie. That was also the reason why I started watching all the Batman movies again. I love the Joker and Harley Quinn. Especially the Lego versions. So I wanted to draw them and this is the result.
“The trailer showed too much”. “They showed the whole movie”. Wow, okay, I’m pretty sure the movie will be around two hours long. Did we watch the same trailer? Because the one I saw was only 2 minutes. Oh, wait, I understand now, you THINK it showed too much because you read someone else say that it did without thinking for yourself. The part where Stark demands the suit back has apparently revealed too much. Seriously? I called that all the way back when the first trailer came out, seeing as though it shows him reverting back to his home made suit to disobey Stark and save the day to prove a point. People aren’t clever enough to calculate a plot feature, until it’s too late and they’re spoon fed it and complain that they didn’t wanna know. Hilarious. Look guys and girls, it hasn’t revealed ‘too much’ at all. I think you’ll find that 90% of trailers reveal and/or elude to story and character motives in trailers to give you a taste of what the film will be about. In other words, consider trailers to be visual Plot Synopsis’. We know how secretive Marvel are with their films - they wouldn’t have shown a tiny piece of that scene if they considered it as ‘too much’. With the logic I’m seeing from people right now: “Damn, I wish they didn’t show aliens spurting out of a worm hole in the Avengers trailer, now I know the whole movie”. “Oh no, I can’t believe they revealed that Bucky was the Winter Soldier in the trailers. I’ve seen the whole film now… all is revealed”. No. They show catalysts and motive ignitions so the audience know what direction the characters will be going in during the films. That is in no way a spoiler or 'too much’. What would have been too much is if we had a thorough back story to the Vulture, how Spidey beats him, what becomes of Peter and Stark’s relationship, does Peter tell anyone else about his identity? What will his relationship status be at the end of the film? How will the choices and actions he make define who the Spiderman is? How will he become worthy of using the high-tech suit again? What do Shocker and the Tinkerer gain from helping the Vulture? What will Spidey’s future and identity be like as a result of this highschool action drama? How is the MCU and the Uptown Queens microcosm shifted as a result? You see, there’s a lot of things that we don’t know. The trailers pave the way for questions to build interest, and the movie answers them by telling a story. Stop using the go-to complaint that they showed too much when they only eluded to the plot. It’s cliché and tiresome. Think for yourself. Sorry if I was harsh. I’m not mad, I’m just dissapointed 😂
I dreamt that I met you on a train. You were wearing a top hat, black suit with black tie and red converse shoes. You had a spell book that could talk, it introduced itself as “Chaosbinder.” The voice sounded like an old record player, the crackle of fire and sticks breaking. You also had a wicker basket that was stained with blood, it was full of mushrooms and thistle.
