After several solo DC films, the Justice League is finally coming together. At SDCC, Warner Bros. unveiled a full-length trailer for “Justice League,” which features Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg banding together to defeat an otherworldly threat.
“Justice League begins after the events of “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which saw the departure of Superman in a tragic, selfless act. Inspired by him, Batman taps ally Diana Price, aka Wonder Woman, and the pair quickly work to bring together a team of supers to defend the world from harm. The move can’t come soon enough, as an otherworldly threat comes to Themyscira and threatens to take over the world itself. Will the Justice League stop him, or will their enemy best the bunch?
“Justice League” will star Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”), Ben Affleck (“Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones”), Ray Fisher (“The Astonaut Wives Club”), Ezra Miller (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”), and Henry Cavill (“Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”) as the members of the Justice League. The supporting cast for the juggernaut film includes Amber Heard (“The Danish Girl”), Amy Adams (“Arrival”), J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), Jesse Eisenberg (“Now You See Me”) and Jeremy Irons (“The Borgias”). Zack Snyder (“Watchmen”) and Chris Terrio (“Argo”) wrote the film’s script, and Joss Whedon (“The Avengers”) came in to finish up the film after a family tragedy sidelined Snyder.
On a side note, rumors have been swirling around that Affleck, who recently stepped down from directing his solo film, “The Batman,” that he might be forced out of the franchise. According to EW, Affleck laid those rumors to rest. “Let me be very clear. I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest f—ing part in any universe. DC. Marvel. I’m so thrilled to do it,” said Affleck during the “Justice League” panel at SDCC. He went on to say that the higher-ups at Warner Bros. have personally told him “we want you to be our Batman,” stomping out rumors that Affleck could be replaced by a different actor.
“Justice League” hits theaters in November. Watch the official trailer below.
