Justice League Trailer

"I'm looking for warriors…" This is a nice surprise! Warner Bros has debuted the official Comic-Con trailer for Justice League online for all to see. This continuation of the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman movies in the DC universe brings together six main superheroes: Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. There may be a few others, and the extensive cast includes Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. Hopefully this trailer is an improvement over Batman v Superman, as many moviegoers were disappointed, but it looks like Snyder is mixing things up and taking a slightly different approach for this one. Have at it.

Here's the first Comic-Con trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League, direct from WB's YouTube:

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. Justice League is once again directed by Zack Snyder, of Batman v Superman, Man of Steel, Sucker Punch, Watchmen, 300, and Dawn of the Dead previously. The screenplay is by Chris Terrio (Argo). WB will unleash the Justice League on November 17th, 2017 late next year. Impressions?

Damn son!!! They nailed it!!! BREVITY LEVITY and another does of Gal!!!~

DAVIDPD on Jul 23, 2016


Yep they nailed it with the levity but it's still clearly a Snyder film. I love the way they all look.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


Affleck is by far the best Batman we've ever had or ever will, so get over it.

CyraNOSE on Jul 23, 2016


Batman is silly kid stuff yet you checked the trailer out anyways. Why? so you could pollute yet another article with your pseudo-intellectual nonsense. you're a troll...plain and simple. you try way too hard to sound smart and just come off sounding like some kid with a keyboard in his parent's basement.

Bob on Jul 25, 2016


Stop feeding the biggest troll here.

Bob on Jul 25, 2016


Far out was not expecting that. It really seems like a change in direction. Glad they put Geoff Johns to watch over everything. They really played up on the humour and the fun part of the movie rather then it being completely dark.

TK on Jul 23, 2016


I never did dig Batman but, man, Superman from 1977. was one of the first films I saw in cinema. I went with my little brother. And man, I have an idea for another round with him. If nothing better comes out of this ...

shiboleth on Jul 23, 2016


I still don't trust in Zack Snyder, but hey! this looks fantasticaly fun! I just don't understand why Bruce Wayne needs to tell Barry Allen: hey kiddo! Im Batman, do you want to join our super team?

toonfed on Jul 23, 2016


He didn't need to but if you're looking to create instant trust...

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


By risking his identity? Batman? If i were Batman i will recruitthe hell out of him beating him to death. Like Batman did with everybody in Batman v Superman.

toonfed on Jul 23, 2016


On one hand he has the total annihilation of earth. On the other he has to put himself out there to construct this team. I'm okay with it.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


Batman will have vetted Allen quite thoroughly, and decided telling Allen he was Batman would be safe. Batman kicks ass so hard not only because he literally kick ass but also because he is fucking smart as all get out. I'd wager he may have even had a back up plan if it went sideways. We are, after all, talking about the guy who keeps list on how to dispatch all his team mates should the go rogue.

Higgens on Jul 27, 2016


Oh yes I promise you he already has a contingency plan for all of the mm.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 27, 2016


It looks good, but I don't trust Snider anymore.

tarek on Jul 23, 2016


Why? BvS was really a good film. I just don't understand why people were so angry about. Besides, Snyder made Watchmen and that was very good ...

shiboleth on Jul 24, 2016


I am glad you enjoyed it. It wasn't alas my case. I suppose you enjoyed man of steel. Which I didn't. Both were a depressing experience. Henri Cavill can suck the life out of the most joyful guy on Earth. Visually speaking, BvS was great, just like any Snyder movie. He is a master of visuals, when he doesn't overdo SloMo and overload the picture with tons of CGI. But storywise, he is as good as C3PO in telling stories.

tarek on Jul 24, 2016


I feel you but these movies require CGI and he really toned down the slo mo in the same way that JJ toned down the lense flares. They listened to the audiences and still made a product that was their signature style.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 24, 2016


that's true. J.J even joked about it in an interview. He said that people in post production try to stuff the movie with lens flares to please him.

tarek on Jul 25, 2016


To be honest, those are not some classic films, they are products but better than to be expected. Classified as fun, those movies deliver more than usual. As for something more serious, I look other ways. I never pictured Sups as an "most joyful guy on Earth', he was always the way this movies show him. I really like the dark tone of it. I think it's the best part of the story. It's also a story of identity and I am glad Snyder is entertaining the idea. To be thrown in another world and to be absolutely confident in all of his powers? Hardly possible ... And as said, below, those movies can't go without CGI so I don't see what's the other choice. As for the story, it's not Ingmar Bergman, all right, but it works pretty well. And pretty much veritable imitation of comic, no? However, I understand you if you didn't like it ...

shiboleth on Jul 25, 2016


Thanks for your reply shiboleth Well, fun movies are supposed to, not tedious. I like when a superhero movie benefits from a good character development, like Nolan's Batman or Favreau's first Iron man ( 2 and 3 were pretty dumby dumb). Snyder's characters are at best 2D cardboard characters. So to make up for it, he uses loads of "charcoal" to give his characters some depth. Which ends up as a total mess ( to me of course). Supes doesn't need to be a whiny saddies depressed guy. I know people in real life who lost their families, their homes, their countries, but showed more happiness than this supersad. I can understand this mood if he was still a teenager trying to find his way, but as an adult, it just doesn’t work. Drama isn’t synonym of sadness. You can’t draw with black on a black page. Drama is more effective when people go through ups and downs of life. With Snyder, it’s always downs and downs. I am not against the use of CGI, as long as they serve the story, and not the other way around. With Snyder, I have the feeling he’s using the story to serve his CGI most of the time. I am maybe being subjective towards him, but I watched BvS with an open mind, and tried hard to like it. But the total nonsense of this forced conflict and the silly behavior and motivation of Lex Luthor didn’t help. Can someone explain to me how and why Lex Luthor was accepted by the AI of the ship as the Lord Commander, just because he used fingerprints of Zod. I thought for an advanced civilization such Krypton, the AI would do a facial recognition, a DNA analysis, a voice recognition, a justnameit recognition… Lex Luthor was always this smart outlaw who would never dig his own grave. Snyder’s Lex Luthor was a crazy dumb guy who tries to strike a match inside a fuel tank. Such a smart ass.

tarek on Jul 25, 2016


Well, thank you tarek for you diligently illustrated response. So, I understand that concept of fun does need some joy, but that's kinda a contract between you and what you expected. As for me I got more than that and I didn't care at all being so grim. However, I do understand that this is very tedious to some or to many. Not to me. Again, I won't defend it as something perfect, but I think that characters got more depth than they usually do in films like these. And I think that ups and downs were visible in the story. I just think that this installment, BvS, was final point of down. How can it be worse? And as for the drama, it doesn't have to be all sadness, but then again, that's not the only thing I saw. I saw a lot of self-questioning and doubts and some good resolutions afterwards. It had some positive impact on Batman, we see it in this trailer. On the matter of using CGI and Snyder, I'm inclined to agree with you. As for the Lex Luthor, I find his motives and actions crystally clear. He thought them all over. If Doomsday would defeat Sups (which was quite credible assumption) and everything would work for him good. And as for the AI in that ship from Krypton, I don't see why it wouldn't work. It did work before since all you had to do is to use that key which rebooted the whole ship. I don't remember that Zod needed, huh, facial recognition to start that vessel. And one other, obvious thing about Lex Luthor, he's an egomaniac. So, would he really let some stranger, no matter how strong, to stand in a way of his plans? Hardly, quite the opposite was his motif. I think it was even a challenge for him. And he even might also act impulsively. Lex Luthor's intelligence is then also his flaw since he doesn't think of consequences of using it. He just go for it convinced he's smart enough to get away with it. Since he thinks that Superman was allured in a fuel tank with Doomsday ... Cheers ...

C3PO wasn't good at telling stories? Then call me an Ewok! lol

RAW_D on Jul 25, 2016


;D He learned since Episode IV, and it shows in ROTJ.

tarek on Jul 25, 2016


Stupid little jokes everywhere, they had to "marvelise" this as well, instead of keeping it dark and mature...they took the easy way out, dumb it down with jokes.

qweqwu on Jul 23, 2016


Does it feel like marvel? No it doesn't. Zack Snyder listened to the fans but it still looks and feels Snyder. Quit looking for something to complain about.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 24, 2016


exactly - great response, jon.

dan on Jul 24, 2016


I just wanted to say that WB really knows how to make a good trailer. For both movies, WW and JL.

capitandelespacio on Jul 24, 2016


Ezra Miller as The Flash. Definitely going to be the stand out in this movie.

movieguyryan . on Jul 24, 2016


SO excited for this.

dan on Jul 24, 2016


Looks good...interesting that they didn't show Supes. Well I'll watch anything with Batman...ANYTHING

Bob on Jul 25, 2016


Let's hope they will never show him again.

tarek on Jul 25, 2016


It's like Ocean's 11 with superheros!

RAW_D on Jul 25, 2016


I had little interest in seeing BvS, even after liking (though no where near loving) Man of Steel (and liking both Affleck & Cavill). I actually want to see this JL movie.

VAharleywitch on Jul 25, 2016


I think Jason Momoa will kill it as Aquaman. One can hope anyway....

RAW_D on Jul 25, 2016


Not a fan of that Flash suit, I was, however, pleased with I saw of Flash/Allen himself.

Higgens on Jul 27, 2016


I agree not A fan of the suit but they got an excellent accent for the part.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 27, 2016

39 reminds me a lot of the "Injustice" costume, a bit. Aww, who am I kidding, it *is* the "Injustice" costume.

Mark Brackney on Jul 30, 2016


you think if marvel picked Ezra Miller to play spiderman instead in civil war it would have been better than flash? Hmmm the kid in civil was was awesome though....
