New ‘Justice League’ Poster Finds the DC Superheroes Uniting
- This, once again, is a Justice League poster that doesn’t feature Superman, who “died” at the end of Batman v Superman. Warner Bros. has already released promo art featuring Superman, so it’s not like they’re promising a Justice League movie without the Man of Steel. There is a shining yellow sun in the middle, between Batman and Wonder Woman — could that be a hint at Supes’ return?
- This poster really doesn’t tell us a thing about the plot. What are they all looking at? And doesn’t it kinda look like Batman is looking straight ahead while Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Aquaman are all looking at something a bit above them, like something up in the sky? (Is it a bird? A plane…?)
- We get another look at Aquaman’s
quindentfive-pronged trident, though it kinda looks like Cyborg is holding it at first glance. Perhaps Warner Bros. is addressing complaints about a trident with five prongs by only showing three of them?
- This makes the Justice League hierarchy pretty clear. Judging by their artistic prominence in the poster, the order of importance goes: Batman, Wonder Woman, then Aquaman, with Flash and Cyborg bringing up the rear. Likely that’ll be how the movie itself divides its focus. But of course, the real mystery is just how big of a role Kal-el will play. (And what costume will he wear?)
That’s about it for this one. It’s pretty and majestic and all that, but not particularly revealing. There may well be some Easter eggs in there somewhere, and we’ll be combing the relevant subreddits for any info.
To refresh your memory about what we do know, here’s the full plot synopsis for Justice League:
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 November 17.
