Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past day or two, then you’ve probably seen the overwhelming amount of promotional material the Warner Bros. marketing team has been delivering via the official Justice League account on Twitter, including a number of character posters and teasers. No, we are not here to bring you more of those but rather to allow you to bask in the gloriousness of the latest trailer for the upcoming DC superhero ensemble.
The new Justice League trailer is jam-packed with plenty of visually stunning shots and key moments, one, in particular, being when Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/The Flash asks Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman, “What are your superpowers, again?” to which Wayne replies, “I’m rich.” It’s a brief, yet fun moment in the trailer which leads us to believe we’ll be getting a much more toned down movie as compared to the likes of last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Plus, self-awareness is always a nice touch in any movie.
Scored to a cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together,” which actually suits the footage quite well, the new trailer offers plenty of footage of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, including a fantastic shot of him riding on the hood of the Batmobile while The Caped Crusader is going full speed ahead towards some CGI alien-looking creatures. Also, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, who seems to be a fairly quiet character, for the most part, does get a little room to shine in the new look at the film. Oh, and be sure to keep an eye out J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon towards the end of the trailer. You can’t miss him.
Directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay penned by Argo scribe Chris Terrio, Justice League will see Batman and his newfound ally, Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, join forces to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against a newly awakened threat, which we haven’t been formally introduced to just yet. However, 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.
Justice League will arrive in theaters on November 17, 2017.

Paramount taps ‘Fargo’ creator Noah Hawley to write, direct next installment in ‘Star Trek’ series
Fresh off the release of his feature directorial debut Lucy in the Sky last month, Noah Hawley has been set to write and direct the upcoming next installment in the Star Trek franchise, according to Deadline.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and the rest of the principal cast are all expected to return for Star Trek 4, which Hawley will also produce for his 26 Keys banner along with JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.
The film is not in any way related to the R-rated spinoff Abrams and Quentin Tarantino have been developing with writer Mark L. Smith and will serve as a direct sequel to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
S.J. Clarkson had been attached to direct Star Trek 4 as recently as last year and was poised to become the first woman to helm a film in the sci-fi series but reportedly parted ways with the project after development stalled in mid-2018.
Hawley — perhaps best known for his work on FX series such as Fargo and Legion — recently made his directorial debut with the Natalie Portman-led drama Lucy in the Sky, which tanked at the domestic box office amid harsh reviews from critics.
Production on Star Trek 4 is expected to get underway in 2020.
