‘Justice League’: Here’s Why The Film’s Aspect Ratio Is Different From BvS

Most of the DCEU fans may have noticed that the Justice League trailer’s aspect ratio are different compared to other movies, including Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman. Finally, we have an answer as to why the upcoming DC film would give the audience a different experience compared to other blockbuster titles.

It looks like shooting some sections on IMAX for Batman v Superman convinced the director to change the aspect ratio in Justice League. Here’s what he had to say (Hat tip to Batman-News for spotting the comment).

“I had so much fun shooting the IMAX sections of my movie (BvS),” Snyder said to a fan on Vero. “Sort of fell in love with that giant, less rectangular aspect ratio and so that’s why I shot JL 1:85.”

In Batman v Superman, Snyder shot quite a few of the scenes on IMAX. An earlier report from May also revealed that the director borrowed some IMAX lenses from Christopher Nolan himself for the shoots.

Movies usually have thick black bars on the top and bottom which indicate that they are shot at 2.39:1 when we experience them on 16:9 HD TV. But that won’t be the case for Justice League.

By far, directors like Nolan and Michael Bay are some of the few directors that have used IMAX lenses to its extent. The recent Transformers: The Last Knight shot 98% of the movie on IMAX. However, the scenes that weren’t shot on IMAX are still noticeable. But it looks like Snyder may have slightly bettered the audience experience with Justice League.

While Snyder didn’t shoot any part of Justice League on IMAX, the change in the film’s aspect ration would definitely give the audience the much desired squarish aspect ratio. Fans can also notice the difference in the ratio in the comparison images posted on Batman-News. Readers can also check out the trailer below to spot the difference.
