SAN DIEGO — In 2001, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, and the rest of their SuperFriends decided to formed the “Justice League” on Cartoon Network: bringing together the world’s finest of superheroes in becoming “Justice League Unlimited” with Aquaman as a member of the organization that upholds the ideals of truth, peace, harmony, brotherhood, sisterhood, hope, equality, fair play, and justice in the good fight to defend the world against the likes of super-villains such as Lex Luthor, the Joker, and Doomsday.
Fifteen years later came “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” on the big screen. And now comes the “Justice League,” as the first trailer was signaled at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Though he failed Superman (Henry Cavill) in life, Batman (Ben Affleck) made a vow that he won’t fail the Man of Steel in death. With the help of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman is on a mission to form an “alliance” with “warriors” like the strong, silent, and stoic Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and “people with special abilities” like the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). No longer the lone Caped Crusader, Batman is about to become the leader of a team that will unite in the war to protect Earth from evil.
The Flash is in because he’s looking for “friends” like the brooding Dark Knight, who isn’t known for being friendly – not unless you’re Adam West, that is.
Co-starring J.K. Simmons as Gotham police commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, and Willem Dafoe, “Justice League” is set for November 2017.
