The Justice League Funko Pop! line has been revealed, with all six members of the team represented. The DCEU is back with force in 2017. Warner Bros. has been off to a bit of a rocky start with the mixed reception to its first three shared movies, but this year sees two films that look to move past that: Wonder Woman and Justice League.
The latter film is acting as the direct follow-up to Batman v Superman, which contained copious amounts of setup for the metahumans and established a Superman-sized heroic hole that needed filling. This means it will, after years of the studio trying to get the project off the ground, finally unite DC’s greatest heroes on the big screen. That’s a major event, and you can expect plenty of merchandise to help mark that.
The first look at the lineup of Funko Pop! figures for Justice League has been revealed online, with a shelf date of August 12th. There’s one for each member of the league (including Kal-El), which can all be seen in the gallery below.
Concept art for the figures appeared online a few months ago, and these all look pretty accurate to those designs. What the proper photos do show is the level of detail to the designs, specifically the moving parts present on The Flash, Cyborg and Batman’s suits. The paintwork on each respective figure really highlights each hero’s unique costume.
As with most of the Funko Pop! figures, these images don’t really reveal anything about the film that fans haven’t already seen, but they do look typically cool. That said, it is still worth mentioning how notably different the Batman figure is compared to some of the character’s previous Funko iterations; it’s incorporating the armor-plated, silver-lined tactical Batsuit design. Bruce Wayne has also been seen in his standard DCEU cape and cowl in previous stills, but that it isn’t featured here suggests it may not be as prominent as some thought.
While Batman v Superman did suffer because of the forced Justice League set-up and character introductions too, the new film does look to be a major change in direction for the DCEU compared to their 2016 misses. Most notably, there’s a much lighter and more comedic sensibility running throughout the team, which hopefully is an indication of how the various personalities will interact once they’re united.
