‘Justice League’: New Details Emerge About DC’s Superhero Movie

Warner Bros. has unveiled the official synopsis, new Batmobile and logo for its upcoming “Justice League” movie, which will bring together Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.

The first look at the new Batmobile was also released on Tuesday.

“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,” the synopsis said. “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——it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

“Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.”

Zack Snyder began shooting “Justice League” in April from a script by Chris Terrio with Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J. K. Simmons and Willem Dafoe also starring. The film is scheduled to be released on Nov. 17, 2017, with “Justice League Part Two” set for June 14, 2019.

“Batman v Superman,” starring Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, turned out to be mildly disappointing for Warner Bros. with worldwide grosses hitting $870 million. Snyder directed from Terrio’s script, which introduced Gadot as Wonder Woman, Momoa as Aquaman and Miller as The Flash.

Warner Bros. also announced last month that Affleck would be an executive producer on “Justice League” in addition to starring. He unveiled the movie logo on Tuesday.

 

Affleck also announced in April at Cinemacon that he would direct and star in a standalone Batman movie.

Warner Bros. has already planned a sprawling slate of movies in the DC universe through 2020, with “Suicide Squad” slated for Aug. 5, the two “Justice League” pics, “Aquaman,” “Cyborg” and “The Flash.”
