On the big screen, the Justice League members are defenders of the human race and they battle tirelessly against super-villains, but in real life, the actors who play these heroes are uniting for a cause close to home.
Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller have come together to show their support for Rezpect Our Water on Change.org, an organisation who is protesting the construction of an oil pipeline.
“As a gang of earth defenders, we want to send a big shoutout to the Oceti Sakowin and those who stand with them in opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline,” Miller says in the video. Though the brief video doesn’t feature any of the stars in their superhero costumes, it does bring awareness to the problems locals are facing in the wake of the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “young members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe launched the campaign to protest the construction, which they say will cross the Missouri River less than a mile from the Standing Rock reservation and potentially cause irreversible harm to both the community’s drinking water and the river’s ecosystem”.

The only Justice League member who’s missing here is Henry Cavill, who’s been pretty much missing in action. We don’t know how big of a role Superman will have in “Justice League” since he died in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” but fans can expect to see him return at some point.
