Warner Bros. continued their San Diego Comic-Con presentation after a Ready Player One trailer, and details about the rest of their DCEU slate with an all new Justice League trailer. Check it out below:
As anticipated, Wonder Woman, on the heels of her incredible box office success, opened the trailer. Soon thereafter, we’re met with every DC fan’s dream of insanity exploding on screen. In the best possible manner, of course. Boom tubes, Steppenwolf (who shows up a few times), the team meeting Gordon and disappearing when he turns away… The list goes on and on.
With any Zack Snyder flick, action upon tons of action is a must. This new look at Justice League does not disappoint. Again, Aquaman and Wonder Woman steal the show in every scene. Not to mention both Cyborg and Flash get their fair share of hero shots. Batman is Batman, doing things that only Batman can. Both he and the Batmobile have never looked so good in live-action.
We also get a sense that the world is still very much mourning the death of Superman. The League is doing all it can to ensure his legacy survives. That includes fighting (surfing on) parademons, battling Steppenwolf, and getting the help of the Amazons.
And make no mistake the trailer doesn’t miss a chance to throw in a few easter eggs. There’s a nice Penguin reference from Alfred and a surprise guest at the end. Said surprise guest isn’t show, which could indicate that it’s Superman. However, Alfred’s words “they said you would come,” intimates he’s talking to a Green Lantern. If it isn’t a nod to GL, there’s not reason to fret as the Corps gets another. Steppenwolf proclaims there are “no Lanterns” to protect the Earth. What does this mean for the Guardians? Is Oa one of the “worlds” that’s previously fallen to him?
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Justice League opens on November 17.
