Here’s when you’ll get your first look at footage from Wonder Woman

suicide squad wonder woman trailers in batman v superman dawn of justice
We’ve seen quite a bit of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice at this point, but while there’s been an early trailer and some unofficial photos from Suicide Squad, we’ve seen comparatively little of that film or the upcoming Wonder Woman solo movie. That’s going to change next month, however, when some new footage from both films, which are part of DC Comics’ cinematic universe, debuts on television.

The CW announced this week that a new trailer for Suicide Squad and a sneak peek at Wonder Woman will premiere during an hour-long block of programming promoting Dawn of Justice and the network’s upcoming Legends of Tomorrow superhero team-up TV series.

The two half-hour specials will air Tuesday, January 19, beginning at 9:00 pm ET on The CW. The first special, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now will offer a preview of the upcoming series featuring a group of DC Comics heroes and villains from the Arrow and The Flash series. The second special is titled DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League and will feature the debut of the new Suicide Squad trailer and a preview of Wonder Woman (which will likely be our first look at footage from the film).

Here are the official synopses for the two specials:

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time is Now is an in-depth look at the origin stories of the heroes and villains of the highly anticipated new series, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, premiering Thursday, January 21, 2016 (8:00-9:00 pm ET/PT). Featuring show clips and interviews from “Legends,” Arrow and The Flash executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer, and Wendy Mericle, “Their Time is Now” introduces viewers to the immortal madman Vandal Savage, the time master Rip Hunter, and the motley band of heroes and rogues he assembles to try to save the future of humanity: Hawkman, Hawkgirl, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, and Heat Wave.

DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe, culminating in the thrilling world premiere of the all-new Suicide Squad, DC’s misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC’s greatest heroes, kicking off with Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, in theaters this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.

The DC Comics cinematic universe kicked off with 2013’s Man of Steel, and will continue next year with Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016. That film will be followed by Suicide Squad on August 5, 2016, and then Wonder Woman on June 23, 2017. Justice League Part One will then bring all of the superheroes together on November 17, 2017.

Wheels of justice: Take a closer look at the new 205-mph, 7,000-pound Batmobile

In the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flick, Bruce Wayne will lock horns with Kal-El in a highly-anticipated and deeply scrutinized big-screen matchup. The prominent superduo have tangled many times over the glossy pages of the comic book, but never before has their clash been this high-profile and with this big of a budget.

We expect the two to settle their differences at the end of the film, but to stand up to Superman, Batman’s going to need every tool in his utility belt. He’s brilliant and in perfect physical condition, sure, but at the end of the day he’s a mortal man going up against a near-invincible, godlike alien. He’s going to need some backup.

In the world of comic books, Batman is Gotham City’s greatest detective, where superstitious and cowardly criminals are thwarted by his fighting abilities and uncanny detective skills. As a purely human superhero, he is aided by an arsenal of gadgetry, at the center of which is his Batmobile, which will of course make an appearance in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Outside of a teaser trailer, though, we’ve only seen a few candid stills of the film, which did show a few shots of Batman’s gnarly new ride. Thanks to some uploaded B-roll, however, we won’t have to wait an entire year just to get a closer look at it.
