  • Justice League Animated Parody Trailer



    There’s nothing like a good parody trailer and our friends over at ArtSpear Entertainment decided that there still wasn’t quite enough humor in the Justice League trailer, so they decided to give it their own unique animated spin.

  • The JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Gets An Amusing ARCHER-style Animated Spoof Trailer


    by Joey Paur 20/9/16

    “I’m looking for warriors and alcoholics with excessive body art.”

    I’ve got a funny animated Justice League spoof for you to watch today that was created by ArtSpear Entertainment. The basically took the trailer that premiered at Comic-Con, gave it an Archer-style vibe, and added some ridiculous humor. They call it “Jackass League,” and I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of it. Enjoy!

  • WATCH: JUSTICE LEAGUE Animated Parody of Comic-Con Trailer


    Posted By: KiLLeR939210 Filed Under “Justice League” 9/20/2016

    The Justice League trailer was a welcome change for many fans as the DC Extended Universe was suddenly infused with a ray of hope. Or at least some light-hearted fun…

    Despite this, ArtSpear Entertainment still thinks it can be even more comedic with a Justice League animated parody of the San Diego Comic-Con trailer.

    The parody is part of ArtSpear’s Toon Sandwich series and is a hilarious take on Batman’s recruitment efforts to form the Justice League. One of the funniest lines has to be when he describes the members of the team he’s forming. He refers to Aquaman as an “alcoholic with excessive body art.”

    Check out the Justice League animated parody below!

    The “Justice League Comic-Con Footage Spoof” is a hilarious take on the trailer that was shown during SDCC 2016 most likely to win over fans and critics who were left dumbfounded by Snyder’s take on the DCEU. This time, expect a more hopeful and optimistic take in succeeding DC Films movies.

    After several dark and brooding DC movies released during the past 10 years (The Dark Knight Trilogy, 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice), fans needed a break. Notice how only two directors were responsible for all seven movies, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder with the former getting the more positive reviews.

    After the failure of Batman v. Superman to win over most fans and critics, change had to be made with DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns also assuming the title of President. Justice League will be the first test of the “hope and optimism” that Johns is preaching.

    Based on the Comic-Con trailer, it looks like the DCEU has taken its first baby steps to redeem its image.

    Justice League will hit theaters on November 17, 2017.

  • September 20, 2016: “Justice League” Comic-Con Trailer Animated Spoof


    September 20, 2016

    ArtSpear Entertainment has given the “Justice League” Comic-Con footage their animated spoof treatment, with hilarious results.

  • Justice League Trailer Gets An Animated Parody


    By Chris Agar 20/09/16

    The DC Extended Universe is well underway with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad opening in theaters this year, and though the response to both were mixed, fans are excited to see the future of the franchise take shape. Next fall, after a long time of waiting, moviegoers will finally get to see a live-action Justice League film, and Warner Bros. is already getting the ball rolling on promotion. During their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, they showed a trailer for Zack Snyder’s superhero team-up and officially released it online shortly after.

    The preview was well-received, with many viewers thrilled by the tonal shift from the dark and grim Batman V Superman. It quickly became one of the most memorable moments of SDCC. Of course, when anything catches on in pop culture, it turns into a target for a parody or two. Justice League footage is no different, and on the heels of an 8-bit version of the trailer making its way online, a more comedic take on the teaser has now been posted. You can watch it above.

    Appearing on ArtSpear Entertainment’s YouTube channel as part of their Toon Sandwich series, the video riffs on the Justice League SDCC trailer right from the opening frame, poking fun at WB’s statement that the footage was specifically cut for attendees in Hall H. A majority of the jokes are based around Bruce Wayne’s interactions with Arthur Curry/Aquaman, including a variation on the “more or less” line, and an entertaining cameo by Pixar’s Dory when the question of Aquaman talking to fish is posed. Bruce’s description of Arthur as an “alcoholic with excessive body art” is also worth a chuckle.

    Another highlight of this spoof is the twist of Barry Allen having a twin brother who is also named Barry (but has no super powers). One of the most famous bits of the real Justice League trailer was Bruce flinging a batarang at Barry’s head to “prove” the youngster is The Flash. Here, the first Barry is killed in a darkly hysterical fashion before the Scarlet Speedster walks into his home. It’s an amusing way of suggesting Batman was acting on a hunch and didn’t know for sure if Barry Allen was really who he was looking for. Chances are, the World’s Greatest Detective did some research, but there’s was always the possibility he was wrong.

    Other funny bits here are Batman disappearing following his “I’m real when it’s useful” proclamation (confusing Cyborg to the point where his system crashes) and an exchange at the end when Bruce reveals that the “threat” the team is facing isn’t Steppenwolf at all, but a regular person Mr. Wayne has had a grudge against for a while (which causes them all to abandon the cause). All in all, there are plenty of laughs to be had watching the video as fans count down the days until Justice League premieres. With a little over a year to go, there’s bound to be several more parodies between now and then.

    Suicide Squad is now playing in theaters. Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2, 2017, followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; an untitled DC Film on October 5, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; an untitled DC film on November 1, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020. The Flash, The Batman solo movie, Dark Universe and Man of Steel 2 are currently without a release dates.

  • Justice League Spoof Trailer Overdoses on the Snickers


    Gel Galang September 19, 2016

    The San Diego Comic-Con 2016 trailer was awesome and gave us goosebumps. Then we saw YouTuber UpIsNotJump recreate the Justice League trailer in Fallout 4.

    Now we have an animated spoof the same trailer, thanks to YouTuber ArtSpear Entertainment. Before you press play, the fact that it’s titled Jackass League should already be fair warning.

    It has some good laughs though, such as Arthur Curry denying with so many words the existence of Aquaman instead of Jason Momoa’s gruff grunts. There’s Barry Allen’s similarly-named secret hidden twin brother Barry who doesn’t have superpowers—and thus gets killed by Batman.

    There are a couple of cameos as well. Cyborg’s “does not compute” and X-Files background music makes him the hero of this piece. And Arthur’s denial of his powers really hurt Dory.

    My favorite of all the spoofs would have to be Batman’s “I’m real when it’s useful.” Of course, when someone takes you up on that question and asks, like Cyborg did, be prepared to answer.

    Afterwards, there’s a nice conversation among the Justice League members as to why the real reason why Batman assembled the team. Be warned, it’s all a high school grudge for the man who took Batman’s high school crush.

    DC’s Geoff Johns did tease that DC movies will lighten up later on, so I guess this is a nice practice for fans to see. We all loved the original trailer—and yes, this parody trailer all the more—so hopefully director Zack Snyder can deliver on Johns’ promise.

    Justice League will be out in theaters on Nov. 17, 2017. It stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, and Henry Cavill.

  • ‘Justice League’ Trailer Spoofed By ArtSpear



    The misery parade for DC’s extended universe has continued at the hands of ArtSpear Entertainment.

    After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received a heavy dose of criticism for being too doom and gloom, Zack Snyder and company responded with a Justice League trailer at 2016 San Diego Comic-Con International laden with humor and didn’t take itself too seriously.

    Although the trailer was a noticeable success for DC and Warner Bros., that didn’t stop ArtSpear from releasing a hysterical spoof entitled Jackass League.

    From a reference to The Lord of the Rings to an unfortunate fate for Pixar’s Nemo and Dori, this chalk full of humor that any good DC fanboy or fangirl would enjoy.

    Maybe Snyder can follow suit and have us laughing in our seats next year when Justice League lands in theaters everywhere.

  • Justice League Gets the Animated Parody Treatment


    09.19.2016 by Rob Cave in Movie News

    We’ve seen the first footage from “Justice League.” We’ve seen it redone as an 8-Bit animated trailer. Now, thanks to ArtSpear Entertainment animators Joe Bauer and Rita Artmann, the upcoming superhero movie gets the full-on animated spoof treatment. Their latest parody cartoon continues their Toon Sandwich series, taking aim at the latest DC movie directed by Zack Snyder.

    The three-minute toon sends up the official “Justice League” Comic-Con Sizzle Reel with masses of irreverence, silliness and a small splash of cartoon violence. It also includes a little humorous speculation as to why Batman is trying to put his super-team together in the first place. While it’s reasonably certain that third-grade crushes won’t be a key plot feature of the finished movie, the Toon Sandwich version will give eager fans of the DC Films universe a little something to smirk at while awaiting more official “Justice League” movie info over the coming year.

    And if this tasty slice of Toon Sandwich leaves you hungry for more, you can find further spoofs that mercilessly mock everything from the latest Star Wars movie to Sean Bean’s tendency to die in so many of his films on the ArtSpear Entertainment YouTube channel.

    “Justice League” will arrive in theaters on November 17, 2017.

  • Justice League Gets An Animated Spoof


    Joe Comicbook- 09/18/2016

    At 2016 San Diego Comic-Con International, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder surprised fans with the first trailer for Justice League. After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was criticized for being too dark and somber, the Justice League trailer included noticeable more humor.

    However, it looks like there wasn’t quite enough humor for ArtSpear Entertainment, who created a hilarious parody of the Justice League trailer for YouTube. In the parody trailer, Bruce Wayne explains, “I’m looking for warriors and alcoholics with excessive body art.”

    The trailer also includes such memorable moments as Bruce Wayne’s first unfortunate meeting with Barry’s twin brother, who doesn’t have superhuman powers. There’s even a special cameo at the end by Nemo and Dory.

    Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

    Justice League is directed by Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and stars Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher.

    Justice League is set for release November 17, 2017.

  • Wonder Woman’s trailer gets a brand new look!


    Written by Catherine G. 2016-08-29

    The trailer for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman premiered at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and as marvelous as it looked, it seems as though there were some individuals who though it could be improved…
    The official trailer for Wonder Woman almost stole the show at this year’s Comic-Con, and marked a new beginning for DC, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad fell short of greatness. Wonder Woman will be the next cinematic outing for DC, and and although some have tried to call it yet another failure to come out of Warner Bros. studios, director Patty Jenkins has swiftly abolished any claim that her film won’t be a critical success.

    However, there were some fans who took their feelings towards the trailer in a different direction and felt that it lacked a little, humour. ArtSpear Entertainment is well known for their animated parodies of blockbuster films such as Captain America: Civil War, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and Game of Thrones, and their latest video on the Wonder Woman trailer didn’t disappoint us.

    The clip follows the order of the trailer exactly, while it also makes light of Wonder Woman’s first encounter with Steve Trevor (with a special appearance by Ariel from The Little Mermaid). It also poked fun at her depart from Themyscira, and the Amazonians’ fighting tactics against guns (which prove to not be too effective) and her walk of stealth. Gal Gadot hasn’t stopped since stealing the show in Dawn of Justice, as she’ll be bringing the Amazonian princess to life for the third time in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. After already having appeared on the big screen with Ben Affleck’s Batman, the actress also recently showed her support for the Savior of Gotham, and we have to admit, we’re on his side, too. What do you think of the animated parody of the Wonder Woman trailer?

  • ‘Wonder Woman’ Release Date, Spoilers, Latest News & Update: Animated Parody Hits On Sword-Proof Dresses, Amazonian Fighting Kills, Walk of Stealth [Watch Video]


    Aug 28, 2016 05:43 AM EDT | By V Doctor

    ArtSpear Entertainment recently featured their spoof version of the “Wonder Woman” trailer in animated fashion. The video was inspired by the official trailer, unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con 2016.

    Bleeding Cool stated that the video showcased some comparisons between the Amazons and human beings at present. The parody trailer also cast some questions on Wonder Woman’s fighting strategy. Although the original “Wonder Woman” movie trailer was well-received by fans at SDCC, the new animated versions, which lasted over three minutes, introduced some hilarious interactions between Steve Trevor and Diana.

    ComicBook noted that the initial scene in the “Wonder Woman” animated parody trailer showed Steve Trevor on the shore of Themyscira, recently rescued by Diana. Wonder Woman mentioned that she realized that Steve was male after taking off his “thgh-sheaths.” The Disney mermaid Ariel also attempted to take the man for herself on the beach before being hit in the face by the Amazonian warrior.

    The “Wonder Woman” animated trailer also featured the round throne backdrop rolling off, which explains how the Amazons discovered the Amazonian wheel. Other notable scenes include Diana’s mom having a homosexual affair, since there were no men on their island. Diana was also warned about their dresses, not being sword-proof. She walked into a party and took out her sword from behind, resulting to the blade cutting off her entire wardrobe in front of everyone.

    Other parts of the “Wonder Woman” video showed Diana explaining how Zeus gave birth to her. The following scenes showcased Amazonian war tactics, which proved to be useless against guns. They started with a slow-motion jumping attack, followed by horses, and then bowless arrows, all to no avail.

    Wonder Woman also tried to use her Walk of Stealth, which was apparently did not meet the purpose. Diana also introduced her dead sister, which was already in the form of a rotting shrunken head. She referred to a secretary similarly to a slave and showcased some of her lethal dance moves.

    Overall, the parody was a great way to appease fans of the Amazonian princess. The solo “Wonder Woman” film is set to launch on June 2, 2017. More updates and details on “Wonder Woman” are expected soon.

  • Wonder Woman Parody Trailer Questions Amazon’s Fighting Plans


    Posted August 27, 2016 by Dan Wickline

    I think the folks at Artspear Entertainment saw a very different version of the Wonder Woman trailer than I did. But they were nice enough to animate their spoof version and post it on-line. In their version the differences between the Amazons and us are a little more pronounced as we see by Steve Trevor’s interaction with Diana.

  • Wonder Woman Trailer Gets An Animated Parody


    Matthew Mueller – 08/27/2016

    This year’s San Diego Comic-Con had it’s fair share of reveals from both Marvel and DC, but DC and Warner Bros. came out swinging with the well-received premiere trailer for their solo Wonder Woman film.

    While Patty Jenkin’s and Gal Gadot’s trailer certainly impressed, a new spoof of the highly anticipated film does as well, and for all matter of different reasons. The parody comes to fans courtesy of ArtSpear Entertainment, who have released a number of parodies based on films like Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones, and Suicide Squad just to name a few.

    Their latest follows the beats of the newest Wonder Woman trailer with some added eccentricities and humor, including the very first scene where Diana finds Steve Trevor on the shore of Themyscira. Who knew that Ariel also frequented the island, or that the Amazons coined the term thigh-sheets.

    Other highlights include the origin of the Amazonian wheel, the social life of Diana’s mom, sword proof dresses, and Amazon war tactics, including a hilarious moment of clarity from the enemy general. The animation is splendid, as is the superb voice acting.

    Also, the Wonder Woman walk of stealth is pure genius.

    You can find more of ArtSpear Entertainment’s work on their YouTube page, and the team itself is made up of Joe Bauer and Rita Artmann. Make sure to check out the entire Wonder Woman clip in the video above.

    The eagerly awaited Wonder Woman film hits theaters on June 2nd, 2017.

  • The Doctor Strange Trailer Gets Spoofed


    Posted July 10, 2016 by Dan Wickline

    Artspear Entertainment has put together a spoof of the Doctor Strange trailer. The upcoming film that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton was ripe for joking, but these guys do an particularly good job adding in references to Inception and the new Ghostbusters film.
