It\u2019s odd, right, pondering what should and shouldn\u2019t be featured in a trailer\u2026 making a list about it\u2026 There\u2019s one incredibly simple solution to potential spoilers being avoided in trailers \u2014 audiences shouldn\u2019t watch them. However, that puts the burden of maintaining a film\u2019s \u201csecrets\u201d on the viewer, rather than the folks responsible for promotion. After all, trailers sell movies, they put asses in seats. If that wasn\u2019t the case, why are companies spending just as much money marketing a film as they do creating it?\r\n\r\nThe problem of previews showing too much has been an issue for several years. Incidentally, there are no signs of the trend slowing to a halt. In fact, Batman v Superman, to many, put the conversation in overdrive, as WB blew its load on the Doomsday reveal before the film hit movie screens. As such, millions sat through a two and a half hour movie waiting for the twist they knew was on the horizon to pop up. Unfortunately, the blame couldn\u2019t be placed on social media or a so-called friend. The recent arrival of Spider-Man: Homecoming\u2019s second trailer is arousing not too dissimilar concerns.\r\n\r\nAll of the above in mind, we\u2019ve chosen to tackle the topic head on. Thus far, Warner Bros. seems to\u00a0 have learned their lesson: the second, though first \u201cofficial,\u201d Justice League trailer is tame as far as the narrative is concerned. However, let\u2019s recall that it was one of the final\u00a0BvS trailers that regretfully spoiled much of the film in approximately three minutes. So what should the studio aim to keep under wraps? We have a few requests. Here are five things we do not want to see until Justice League hits theaters on November 17.\r\n\r\nImage: Warner Bros.\r\n\r\nNEXT: The Man of Steel\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n1. Superman\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen Zack Snyder premiered the first Justice League footage last year at SDCC everyone was left asking, where's Superman? Over the last couple of months, as promotional images and stills from the film have arrived online, fans have been questioning, but where's Superman? They're fair questions, often emotionally driven, and raise concerns for some. Some fans of the Boy Scout aren't too happy with the treatment the Kryptonian's received in the DCEU. And, so far, the marketing material for a Justice League movie, a group the character historically organizes, is not inciting much confidence.\r\n\r\nOf course, the answer behind his absence is simple: his return has to be a surprise. "But we know he's coming back, so not showing him seems foolish." Such a stance is a agreeable. However, lifting the veil is problematic. Imagine sitting in the theater and being able to discern at what instant\u00a0Superman will appear, based on the look of a certain scene. More importantly, the Man of Steel deserves to own a moment independent of anyone else. He deserves to be given the emotional weight many would agree he was\u00a0robbed of in Batman v Superman. Quite simply, he deserves better than to have his point\u00a0of return diluted by a quick cut in a two minute trailer.\r\n\r\nNEXT: Apokolips' Finest\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n2. Steppenwolf and Darkseid\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIt's been made abundantly clear that Steppenwolf is the League's foe in the upcoming film. Last November, the Apokolips general's\u00a0actor was revealed as Game of Thrones' Ciaran\u00a0Hinds. At the time, public knowledge was limited to Hinds having completed motion capture and that Steppenwolf's looks had been upgraded beyond what was shown in Batman v Superman. Here's to hoping WB's marketing team elects to keep the details just as minimal until this November brings in\u00a0Justice League. Do we need to see him at all? Probably not. However, if it's a tease they want to deliver, then tease they must! There's nothing wrong with being cryptic, though.\r\n\r\nRemember that awesome Injustice 2 trailer where Braniac was revealed as the game's villain? Tension built throughout that trailer perfectly with Braniac's voice over and nothing more doing all of the work. At the end, we see his blurred silhouette coming into view, before the trailer cuts to black and transitions into the game's logo. There's no reason Justice League can't take a similar approach, saving Steppenwolf's appearance for the big screen.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDarkseid is a different matter, yet one still worth considering. Reports suggest the supervillain will appear in some form or fashion in the film, courtesy of a sequence detailing the history of the Mother Boxes. However, said report is nearly a year old and things can change drastically in that period of time. Recent news of a purported update to the film's synopsis directly name drops the Apokolips ruler; it, too, has yet to be confirmed. His presence is all but expected, but if WB could keep him and the actor bringing him to life a secret... kudos will be in order, as well as a letter of appreciation.\r\n\r\nNEXT: Action or\u00a0Narrative?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n3. The Balance Between Action and Narrative\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMan was the latest Justice League trailer packed with awesome moments. We certainly haven't even seen the half of it. Parademons, Aquaman skewering Parademons with his trident, Batman letting the King of Atlantis surf on the Batmobile... good times, indeed. No complaints can be had in that regard. However, some were in search of a hint to\u00a0the over-arching narrative. Honestly, there weren't many on display. Is that a bad thing? Again, we refer to the newest look at Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that trailer, according to social media, shows off too much of the action. So what's the best approach? An even balance? If that's the answer, then\u00a0subjectivity rears its head into the conversation.\r\n\r\nSome folks may consider certain set-pieces from the Homecoming trailer spoilery. Some may contend a bit of the action in Justice League's latest preview needed to be kept tucked away. Others can argue we need to see how far Tom Holland's Spider-Man can take his skill set and that those Aquaman scenes are necessary to sell a skeptical audience on his badassery. It's a hard balance to strike, and typically not a battle studios and those responsible for trailers are likely to\u00a0win. But truth be told, Man of Steel's\u00a0second trailer managed just fine.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNEXT: The Supporting Cast\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n4. Let the Secondary Roles Shine in Theaters\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJustice League will have a large main cast. Its supporting characters are expected to be numerous, as well. It's awesome seeing Mera submerged in the deep sea, and hopefully she gets another teaser or two. The recent trailer also offers a brief look at Lois Lane, who will likely get more attention in the months to come. One character expected to appear\u00a0as the film's marketing peaks is Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor. BvS trailers and those who disliked seeing him in them would argue against such a move.\r\n\r\nLex is confirmed to return, and the hope is that we'll get a glimpse of him in the DCEU's version of Arkham Asylum. Other characters to appear are Commissioner Gordon, Diana's mother, Queen Hippolyta, and Alfred Pennyworth. This presumably only scratches the surface as Iris West, a Green Lantern, and now Thanagarians lead the pack in speculated additions. If any or all of these DC\u00a0favorites are to show up, here's to hoping trailers and promotional materials don't spoil the surprise. The Thanagarian theory, interestingly, is spawned from the latest trailer, whereby the Hawks are thought to be seen fighting Parademons on Themyscira. Should such an assumption prove true, few would be disappointed, especially if the mystery continues to intrigue a corner of the internet without confirmation.\r\n\r\nAll of this is to say give us more of Commissioner Gordon, tease Alfred's role, but a secondary character's best moments should not go to waste in\u00a0a TV spot.\r\n\r\nNEXT: The Final Boss\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n5. The Final\u00a0Battle Should be an Unpredictable Wonderland of Awesomeness\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis most disappointing aspect of the photo above is that prior to BvS' release, everyone and their mother had seen it half a dozen times. In fact, some of Wonder Woman's best moments took place during the Trinity's fight versus Doomsday. Said moments, every last one of them, were spoiled in the weeks leading to release. It's parallel to a video game showing clips of a title's final boss battle. How pissed would fans\u00a0be if From Software touted a new Dark Souls with gameplay footage of the final boss? Pissed may not be\u00a0a strong enough term... Why should films be any different?\r\n\r\nAgain, it comes down to a balancing act, one in which victory isn't easy to attain. Perhaps\u00a0footage from a movie's third act should be avoided entirely, a thought that circles\u00a0back to the Doomsday discussion. Hopefully, no such discussion will be broached in regards to Justice League.\r\n\r\nThe most packed entry of the DCEU yet opens in theaters on November 17.
