Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably watch the first official trailer for “Justice League” at least once.
Finally, we’ll get to see the DC superheroes teaming up for an action flick of their own. Not only were fans treated to some of the Justice League members’ powers but the villainous Parademons were also included. However, 1 very important character was missing: Superman.
Even though Superman died towards the end of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, fans would know that the Man of Steel never stays dead for too long. It has also been confirmed that Henry Cavill will be reprising his role for “Justice League”. So where exactly is Superman?
It appears that his absence will factor into the events of “Justice League“. “It’s hard to have a ‘Justice League’ without Superman. That’s how I feel about it. It was always a super-intriguing concept to me to have this opportunity to have him make that sacrifice but also have him be this, in a weird sort of way, the why of Justice League: What do you do now with him? What does the team think? What does the world need? All that comes into play. It’s fun for us but it’ll be interesting for audiences what we do with him,” director Zack Snyder told USA Today.
That’s the whole point isn’t it? It makes sense that Superman is being held back from marketing at the moment. Warner Bros. isn’t denying that the Man of Steel will return at some point during “Justice League”. The official “Justice League” website even features 6 hero slots, with 1 blank slot clearly left for Supes.
The mystery surrounding Superman’s absence is being used as a driving force to get the fan community excited. Just like how Ego the Living Planet wasn’t revealed until the final “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” trailer, fans will need to be patient and wait a while longer.
In the meantime, feel free to hit that replay button again:
“Justice League” will debut in theatres on 17th November 2017.
