Just yesterday, Warner Bros. revealed a new heavy metal logo for Justice League, which — as I pointed out — looked like exactly the sort of thing that Jason Momoa’s Aquaman could get behind. Is Ben Affleck’s Batman recruiting a team of superheroes, or assembling a heavy metal supergroup? Thanks to this new set photo, we have an answer.

In case you were confused about the tone of the DC movie universe, this new Justice League logo should make things perfectly clear: This isn’t your kid’s bright and shiny Marvel Cinematic Universe. Oh, no. This is a heavy metal comic book world where superheroes straight-up SHRED. Can you hear that? It’s the sound of a guitar wailing in the distance, heralding the arrival of heroes in need of a stiff drink and a bar fight.
This looks like a job for Superman. Too bad he’s dead.
Arrow showrunners made clear that Matt Ryan’s crossover return to the role of Constantine was a one-off for Season 4, but in lieu of seeing the actor’s take once again, we can at least hear it in the animated Justice League Dark. A new featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the long-awaited adaptation, including Ryan’s return as the chain-smoking demon-fighter.
The flurry of Comic-Con 2016 afforded us our first look at the big-screen Justice League all suited up, while a few doors down saw DC’s TV heroes similarly previewing their next appearances. TV Flash Grant Gustin even had a chance to check out his big-screen counterpart’s Flash-ier costume, noting that the CW version had more of a “street, vintage” feel.
Warner Bros. kicked things off pretty strong during today’s Comic-Con panel in Hall H, debuting a fantastic new trailer for the Wonder Woman solo movie, followed by a special sneak peek at Zack Snyder’s Justice League. In addition to screening footage from the first installment in the two-part film series, WB premiered an official photo featuring the full superhero lineup, giving us a better idea of what these characters will look like when they’re finally united.
DC fans are expecting some big things from both TV and movies at Comic-Con 2016, and seeing as The Killing Joke might be a little too dark, young animation fans have something to look forward to as well. See DC’s best and brightest with a first official trailer for Cartoon Network’s Justice League Action, along with new cast announcements!
When I was a kid reading Justice League comic books, the Justice League was kind of a weird group. By the mid-90s the group had splintered into different factions, with one team headquartered in America and another in Europe, and both teams were populated by B-list players like Maxima, The Ray, Black Condor, Blue Jay, and Blue Devil. Most of the classic Justice League heroes were off on their own adventures (or dead or injured). It was a huge deal when DC relaunched the book as JLA with just iconic DC characters: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, the Flash, and Martian Manhunter. This group was colloquially referred to as “The Big Seven.”
We finally have a ton of new details about Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.
If you had any remaining doubt regarding Zack Snyder’s gritty and totally jacked aesthetic for the DC universe, look no further than J.K. Simmons. The Oscar-winning character actor is apparently getting totally ripped for Justice League, giving us a Commissioner Gordon unlike any we’ve seen before. If you were expecting the sensible sweater-wearing, gruff-yet-kindly law enforcement official you’ve come to know and admire, you’ll need to adjust those ideas accordingly.
