See the ‘Justice League’ team united in a new photo from Warner Bros.

Justice League
After pitting Batman and Superman against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. Pictures is teaming Batman up with some of the studio’s other, live-action DC Comics superheroes for the upcoming Justice League movie. Up to this point, we’ve seen a few photos of the individual team members and one or two of them together, but now we have our first good look at the whole team assembled for its cinematic debut.

Warner Bros. Pictures released an official, high-resolution image of the Justice League superheroes lined up and ready for action, and in keeping with the studio’s theme for its comic-book universe, there are plenty of somber looks and shadows to go around.

The photo features all five members of the initial team — Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman — striking a pose as they prepare to descend a ramp in what appears to be a ship of some sort.

From left to right, that’s Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Superman is nowhere to be seen in the photo, likely due to the events at the end of Batman v Superman, but set photos have suggested that Henry Cavill will make an appearance as the Man of Steel in some form during the film.

Directed by Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman filmmaker Zack Snyder, Justice League is based on a script by Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio. The official plot synopsis released by the studio reads 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.”

Along with the aforementioned core cast of characters, the film is also expected to introduce Amber Heard as the Atlantean Queen Mera, Willem Dafoe as the Atlantean advisor Vulko, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Ciarán Hinds as the villain Steppenwolf, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Jesse Eisenberg will reportedly reprise his Dawn of Justice role as Lex Luthor, along with Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.

Justice League is scheduled to hit theaters on November 10.

Like The Mandalorian? Then you must read these Star Wars bounty hunter books
Boba Fett in action in cover art for War of the Bounty Hunters.

Longtime fans will surely be hoping that Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise will capitalize on the strong reception of Andor as The Mandalorian -- Disney+'s flagship series -- finally makes its return early next month with season 3. The latter series gave a refreshing look at the vast Star Wars universe through the lens of a gritty amalgamation of the sci-fi and Western genres.

Din Djarin and Grogu's one-off and overarching bounty hunter-themed adventures show the creativity Star Wars is capable of, but the franchise has similarly engaging exploits off the screen as well. From comic books to novels, bounty hunters and the crime syndicates of the galaxy make for some worthwhile side stories sure to satisfy invested fans of the space opera. From Legends tales from the likes of Dark Horse Comics to mainline Disney-era canon under Marvel Comics, there are several fitting bounty hunter books to prepare for The Mandalorian season 3.

I’m a lifelong Marvel fan. After Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, I’m done with the MCU
Multiple Ant-Mans look confused in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

This past weekend, the 31st (!) Marvel movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, was released to thunderous indifference. While the film grossed over $100 million at the box office, the critical and audience response has been tepid. It's the lowest-ranking Marvel film on Rotten Tomatoes and didn't achieve the "A" Cinemascore that was almost customary with every MCU release prior to the pandemic.

Marvel fans have been here before. Phase Four, which started with Black Widow and ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was a notoriously rocky period when the broken cogs began to show in Marvel's well-oiled machine. Kevin Feige, the grand architect behind Disney's lucrative product line, er, movie division, recognized this and promised that Phase 5, which would start with the third Ant-Man film, would offer a clarity of purpose and, everyone hoped, a restoration of the quality and enthusiasm seen in past Marvel movies. What everyone got instead was an overstuffed CGI fest that was more intent on vaguely teasing future movies and promoting Disney+ content than telling an entertaining story.
