With just over a month until the release of Justice League, Warner Bros. is turning up the heat on the marketing campaign, and a new full-length trailer – presumably the last before the film opens – has just arrived. You can check out Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and more in the clip below.
This is the first bit of footage we’ve seen since Joss Whedon took over directing duties from Zack Snyder, who departed earlier this year to cope with a family tragedy, and while it certainly retains Snyder’s signature look, there are a few more chuckles thrown in, which may very well be credited to the rewrites Whedon completed (he shares a screenplay credit with Chris Terrio).
This is also the first time we’ve seen Henry Cavill in any of the marketing materials for this film – granted, he only appears in a flashback, but it finally confirms that he’s in the film, something everyone is already acutely aware of. Warner Bros. has gone to great lengths to give the illusion that Superman is nowhere to be found, and this trailer is even predicated on the idea that his death has given rise to terrible acts of violence across the globe – but anyone who thinks that Supes isn’t going to rise from the grave and kick some ass in the third act is kidding themselves.
Also starring Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Justice League hits theaters on November 17.
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.
