For the second year in a row, the WB panel featured a look at Justice League. Things, however, are very different than they were a year ago with massive reshoots, the director change to Joss Whedon following Zack Snyder’s family tragedy, and the unexpectly wild success of Wonder Woman. This is BY FAR the best look at the film so far, the most cohesive trailer, and not only is it noticeably more Wonder Woman-intensive, it carries the same tone. It also gives us the first look at the film’s villain: Steppenwolf (NO NOT THE BAND), who will inevitably lead us to Darkseid. I feel a lot more optimistic about this after this year’s look than last year’s. Justice League will open November 10, 2017. For a full plot summary, read below.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Amber Heard as Mera, Kierset Clemons as Iris West, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist 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.
Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel), the screenplay is by Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Filmmaker Joss Whedon is set to helm the upcoming additional photography for the sequel and oversee the completion of its post production following a family tragedy with Snyder. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.
Justice League will open in theaters on November 10, 2017.
