A flood of updates on Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie are arriving online this week, offering an early peek at Warner Bros. Pictures’ much-hyped superhero team-up movie.
Along with providing the first look at the film’s official logo, plot synopsis, and the updated version of the Batmobile that will appear in the movie, the various reports also offer the first indication of how the studio intends to prove it learned from the mistakes of this year’s much-maligned Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Directed by Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice filmmaker Zack Snyder, Justice League — which has apparently dropped the “Part One” from its title — 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.
Not only does Batman’s support team get an upgrade in Justice League, but his car does, too. The first image of the Batmobile as it will appear in Justice League features some significantly larger guns, among other changes.
The studio also debuted the official logo for the film, which harkens back to the more classic Justice League of America comics with the presence of a star in the midst of the title graphic.
Set to star Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot reprising their roles as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, respectively, Justice League will also feature Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. They’re joined by Amber Heard, who will make her debut as the Atlantean Queen Mera, as well as Willem Dafoe in an unidentified role and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon.
Justice League is scheduled to hit theaters November 10, 2017.
