It’s been a long wait for DC Comics fans, but the live-action Justice League film is finally happening.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero universe has brought in the bucks, but hasn’t had the easiest time of it on the big screen, with controversy and polarizing debate accompanying the first three installments of the studio’s cinematic franchise: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad. However, the studio is hoping the fourth time’s the charm.
Helmed by Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder, Justice League brings back the latter film’s trio of Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. They’re joined by a squadron of DC favorites who made brief appearances in Batman v. Superman.
Set to debut in theaters November 17, 2017, Justice League is shaping up to be the biggest cinematic event to date in WB’s superhero universe. Here’s everything we know (spoiler alert!) about Justice League so far:
After teasing the arrival of the first full-length trailer for Justice League, Warner Bros. Pictures delivered it on March 25 — and it quickly became quite the conversation starter.
Offering glimpses of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and Flash in action against an invading horde, the trailer also revealed glimpses of some of the comedy that the studio and director Zack Snyder insisted will lighten the tone of the film. Snyder’s previous DC Comics superhero mashup, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was criticized for its oppressively grim and gritty tone and the Justice League team has been vocal about its efforts to add more humor to the upcoming film.
