Another trailer for Justice League???
At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. brought a new trailer for November’s Justice League. The world’s greatest heroes unite to fight a new Apokoliptian threat known as Steppenwolf. Justice League is the superhero team-up Warner Bros. has been promising since the inception of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe). After Superman (Henry Cavill) sacrificed himself in the fight against Doomsday in last year’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Batman (Ben Affleck) takes it upon himself to find other superheroes to fight otherworldly threats. That means teaming up with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). There’s even a mention of both Kryptonians and the Green Lantern Corp, even though they’re nowhere in sight.
Justice League will hit theaters on November 17th.
Before we get started, check the trailer below to get more info about it.
Breakdown of Justice League Steppenwolf trailer.
It starts with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in action like dodging bullets and doing sliding sweep kick on a guy holding a museum class trip hostage for their robbery.
We get a look at the world in mourning after Superman’s (Henry Cavill) death in Batman v. Superman. Batman (Ben Affleck) takes it upon himself to find other superheroes to fight otherworldly threats.
Then we jump to Themyscira, where Diana’s people are guarding a Box in their armory when something spooky happens. And that’s when Steppenwolf, the Apokaliptian villain of the movie, shows up. Steppenwolf was created by Jack Kirby back in 1972. He’s Darkseid’s uncle and leader of Apokolips’ military.
As we move through the trailer, we get voice over from someone (possibly Steppenwolf) that says, “No protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian.”. That possibly hints on the roles of Superman and Green Lantern (If any).
We also get a look at Aquaman (Jason Momoa) underwater in Atlantis, Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Flash (Ezra Miller). Every trailer makes Cyborg look better and better. There are some amazing fight scenes of Steppenwolf with Aquaman, Batman and Wonder Woman individually. We will see some high-end gadgets used by Batman and Cyborg.
The trailer closes with Alfred in the cave talking to someone he was “told would come.”. WHO COULD THAT BE? By the way, Alfred gets all the best lines in this trailer. His crack about “exploding wind-up penguins” is a nice little piece of world-building.
