DC fans, here’s an image to get you even more excited for what the DCEU is ready to bring. USAToday posted a list of anticipated films of this running year and with it came this high-res image of the Justice League that recently leaked online:
The image shows Batman (Ben Affleck) in his tactical Batsuit next to Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) with sword and shield in hand, ready to battle. Their newest teammates, Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and his intimidating trident, are also posting next to them facing an unknown opponent. In the same list, Wonder Woman’s 2017 arc was mentioned since she’ll be jumping from a her solo origin movie to her joining the first big-screen interpretation of the Justice League. Zack Snyder, Justice League director and Wonder Woman producer, said this to USAToday:
“Humanity isn’t always the most kind and awesome thing. It has its moments, but it can be brutal, and her coming to terms with that dichotomy is what we come to learn about her. And in Justice League, she’s fully evolved into someone who’s embraced mankind, partly through Superman’s sacrifice. She’s like, ‘All right, I’ve got to pick it up.’”
Fans are definitely excited to get two films this year that showcase the biggest female comic book character in history. Even with the passing of Superman (Henry Cavil) in Batman v. Superman, the roster the league’s getting is definitely one with some major characters. Zack Snyder said this about the members:
“It was all about the filling-out of this massive comic-book pantheon with the biggest and coolest heroes we could.”
Of course, the question that arises is: What amount of screen time will the resurrected-Superman get? The answer will come on November 17 of this year when Justice League hits theaters.
