Right on the heels of their release of the first full trailer for Wonder Woman, DC has released the first teaser trailer for Justice League as well as the first look at the full team, official synopsis below:
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.
Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will be reprising their roles as the DC Trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.‘ Justice League, and joining them are Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Amber Heard is set to play Queen Mera in the film as well before moving to the solo Aquaman movie in 2018, with Willem Dafoe appearing in a mystery role, and J.K. Simmons playing Commissioner Gordon.
Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Justice League will debut in theaters on November 10, 2017.

Looks less cool than WW, but a lot more fun.
The scene between Bruce and Barry is coolness personified.
I need the Aquaman movie and I need it now. This definitely was tonally more likable than BvS, played off the strength of that movie which was Affleck’s Batman, and did a great job at introducing Flash and Aquaman (Cyborg to a lesser extent). Gadot and Affleck have good rapport….fingers crossed.
I’m looking at this image, and this trailer, and I’m wondering why this movie won’t be as good as the Avenger movies. Because it probably won’t be, as baffling as that seems. The Avengers are mere superheroes. The members of the Justice League are also knights. These characters have so much weight when you compare them to the ones from Marvel, and if only WB would balance out the darkness and the weightiness with some genuine humanity and fun, they would have the better product, and it would do just as well financially as the MCU.
BTW, I wrote above that the Bruce/Barry scene personified coolness, and I meant to say that it exemplified coolness. I alone care, but these things bug me. BTW, BTW, I think I’m going to have a chance to see the Killing Joke tomorrow. What I’ve read about the first twenty minutes gives me pause, but it’s the Killing Joke and I’m excited. If you don’t get a chance to see it, I will tell you what I thought.
I’ll see it Tuesday. I have the same pause you do. And I’m not happy about it. The thing with JL is that all these characters come to the screen with baggage. The Avengers, none of those characters had film histories. And the lead up to it was flawless, whereas DC’s has been rushed and spotty. I’m hoping Suicide Squad and WW are great, but that doesn’t fix all the missed opportunities to really ramp up to a killer JL film. That being said, I thought what they put together for the first trailer was charming and funny and the Flash and Aquaman stand out because THEY are the new characters; the ones without film histories. I will watch that Aquaman film right now. I wonder at what point Henry Cavill will stop being dead; if that’s the end of part one or if he returns sooner.
If I were I charge at WB I would just gloss over BvS, and treat JL as the “beginning.” I would write the next films so that people won’t need to watch BvS to understand them. I would make Superman’s resurrection the beginning of the story, with the world trying to make sense of this Christ figure’s return, and while I would allude to the fact that he has a history with Batman, I would not specify what the history was. I would treat their relationship with WW the same way. I would just go ahead and recast Lex. I think this would have worked, since the WW film does not seem like it would interfere, and Suicide Squad will kind of carve out its own corner of the universe. Of course this approach would only have worked if Snyder was immediately dismissed, and he wasn’t.
