“Arthur Curry, I hear you can talk to fish.”
The cast of “Justice League” – director Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (Flash) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) – got busy at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) when they appeared onstage during the Warner Bros. panel.
Attendees had expected to see just the first official image of the Justice League (refer to the image above) and maybe gain some invaluable nuggets of information about the film’s production. As you can see from the first team photo, Superman is very much alive despite where the end of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” left him.
The official synopsis for “Justice League” is as follows:
“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.”
So, fans who were present at the panel definitely did not expect Zack Snyder to throw an entire “Justice League” trailer their way.
The footage features Bruce Wayne aka Batman (played by Ben Affleck) introducing Aquaman (played by Jason Momoa) and The Flash (played by Ezra Miller) to us by means of him seeking them out to form the Justice League team to battle an enemy on the horizon. Because who better to get the DC heroes together than Batman himself, right?
As the not-in-costume dark and brooding Aquaman, Jason Momoa looks hella badass and reminiscent of his “Game of Thrones” character Khal Drogo. Also, whatever doubts that we had about Zack Snyder casting Ezra Miller for the role of The Flash in “Justice League” (instead of Grant Gustin from The CW’s “The Flash” TV series) was effectively tossed aside once we saw the comedic banter between The Flash and Bruce Wayne.
Let’s not forget that although this first look at the “Justice League” film gave Wonder Woman and Cyborg some time to shine, Superman (played by Henry Cavill) is nowhere to be seen despite the fact that he’s included in the first official image of the team. Ah, but all will be explained when the film is released, we’re sure.
Do we love what we’ve seen so far? Is it fantastic? Heck yes. Watch:
“Justice League” is set to hit cinemas worldwide in November 2017.
