Warner Bros. already wowed the Comic-Con audience with the first look at Ready Player One, but of course the most anticipated film of their annual presentation is Justice League, which finds the heroes of the DC Extended Universe joining forces to stand against a newfound enemy.
The film received a major skake-up recently with the announcement that director Zack Snyder would be leaving the project to deal with a family tragedy, with the studio tapping The Avengers director Joss Whedon to handle several weeks of reshoots and the remaining post-production duties. But based on this new trailer, things are still moving along nicely.
This looks appropriately epic, but hopefully the use of slow-motion in the finished film is less excessive than what we’re seeing here. Also, there are a couple of really bad shots in this clip, like Aquaman surfing on the body of a vanquished parademon – I know we’re still a few months out from the release, but I’m surprised that shot was used in this trailer.
Starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Justice League opens on November 10.
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.
