For some DCEU fans, it has been a long frustrating eight months since the release of the first Justice League trailer which dropped during SDCC last Summer. Since then, Warner Bros. has released Suicide Squad and dealt with a myriad of bad publicity surrounding The Flash, The Batman, and the entire DCEU as a whole. Despite what has been said about Wonder Woman, the first female-led superhero tentpole looks very promising, and Matt Reeves will be directing The Batman – a film which star Ben Affleck looked like he had no interest in directing in the first place. They are even courting Matthew Vaughn to directMan of Steel 2 or an untitled DCEU film.
Now Warner Bros has announced that they will soon be releasing a new trailer for Justice League, and judging by how it is focused on Aquaman (Jason Momoa), we might be getting a lot more of them. Check out the teaser for the trailer here below, along with the newly released teaser poster.
This is just my guess, but the teaser, which aired today during The Today Show, is very character-centric. Meaning, we could get more like them as we get closer to the trailer’s release on Saturday, March 25. The Aquaman emblem opening leads me to think that maybe we will get one for at least The Flash and Cyborg. Given that we’ve already seen Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman on screen, it only makes sense that Justice League heroes who have the least amount of screen time so far be a big part of this campaign. Then again, that is just speculation on my part.
Other than the 14 seconds of Aquaman, there really isn’t much to this teaser video. We see Batman handing off a trident to him. He stops a tidal wave, or at least it looks like it, and the hatch door opens up to reveal the founding members of the Justice League, sans Superman. It should be interesting to see how the marketing team will introduce Supes. It’s not as though we don’t know he’s rising from the dead. That final scene in Batman v Superman should have been a big tip off. But the reveal is something DCEU fans will be watching out for.
Here’s the offical plot synopsis:
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.
Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.
