Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman unite in first ‘Justice League’ footage

The way Batman V Superman ended had everyone wondering about the fate of Superman, but during SDCC the movie's director Zakk Snyder reassured fans that Superman will be in the movie.

On Saturday, Warner Bros. surprised us all by releasing not only the first official image of the Justice League assembled, but a trailer for the movie too (they'd clearly learned from the mistake they made previous year when they were forced to release that Suicide Squad sneak peek after it leaked online).

The first Justice League film releases November 17, 2017. The stacked superhero movie features a gravelly voiced Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) recruiting superheroes, collecting a pissed-off Aquaman (Jason Momoa!) and friendless Flash (Ezra Miller!). Superman (Henry Cavill) faces battles three fronts: his rivalry with Batman (Ben Affleck) who is determined to use kryptonite against him, the government leading a congressional inquiry into Superman's involvement in the carnage and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) unleashing a genetically-engineered monster made from Zod's body and DNA.

The joke-laden trailer is a marked contrast from "Batman v Superman", which was heavily criticized for its dark tone and taking itself too seriously.

Before that one drops in theaters, Diana Prince gets her own solo movie first - and an extended look at Wonder Woman's feature film looked downright fantastic.

Just when you think that's all the stuff shared with us today regarding the Justice League, Warner Bros. comes out and shocks us all by releasing the first trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman solo film. In the comics on which the hit AMC series is based, the character rules a formidable community known as the Kingdom.

So first, we've got Justice League as we follow a decidedly more cheerful Bruce Wayne and Dianna Prince form the Justice League and try and drum up some positive vibes for 2017.

Leading off was director David Ayer's supervillain team-up flick, "Suicide Squad", which hits theaters on August 5.

"This is not a movie about good versus evil", Smith said.

The big fans of comic books, though, may be trying to either catch up on all of the Justice League comics or some beginners may be looking to get into that life.

The studio did not make a splashy announcement about the news at its Comic-Con presentation on Saturday. He also shared his excitement about having the chance to work with Affleck on a stand-alone film. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
