After two days worth of teasing, Warner Bros. finally dropped the long-awaited trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League. And for DC Comics fans like us, it was all kinds of awesome!
Whether it was Aquaman skewering Parademons with his trident, The Flash running circles around the minions of Darkseid, or Batman perched atop a building like some sort of ancient gargoyle, there was a lot to love in the first official Justice League trailer.
Here are our top ten favorite moments...
#10 - Bruce Plots His Next Move - The trailer starts off by revealing that Bruce Wayne is a long way from home looking to track down prospective members of the Justice League. Here, we see the Caped Crusader surveying his next move from atop a cliff overlooking the Icelandic hideaway of one Arthur Curry. Surrounded by the frozen seaside, it is almost the polar opposite of the last time we saw Bruce trudging across a barren landscape seeking out a price - during the Knightmare sequence glimpsed in last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
#9 - Silas Has A Visitor - Given that the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice revealed that Dr. Silas Stone possesses a Mother Box, it comes as no surprise that the Parademons would seek him out after he awakened the technology to save his son. Now, the question is, will Silas meet his end in this scene? Or, will the minions of Darkseid kidnap him and use him to locate the other artefacts? We can't say for sure, but he's probably not going to be welcoming this intruder with open arms - that much is for certain.
#8 - The Return Of Lois Lane - While Superman was MIA in the new Justice League trailer, we did get a brief glimpse of Lois Lane during all the excitement. How much screen time she'll actually be getting in the new DC Film remains to be seen, but it's great to see another returning character that once again proves that we're actually getting an interconnected DC Expanded Universe - and that's just all kinds of awesome!
#7 - Henry Allen Behind Bars - Last year, word broke that Alien: Covenant actor Billy Crudup has been cast in The Flash solo movie as Dr. Henry Allen, and here we have confirmation that he is indeed playing Barry's big screen pop - and sooner than we were actually expecting. What's more interesting is that our first glimpse of the good doctor sees him behind bars - no doubt serving time for the apparent murder of wife Nora. It will be interesting to see how the theatrical version of Henry stacks up against John Wesley Shipp's DC TV take.
#6 - Cyborg Battle Mode - Here, Vic Stone takes his technology to a whole new level. While zooming through an underground tunnel, Cyborg's battle mode is activated, his face and skull encased behind a very sleek looking metal mask. Barring a striking resemblance to Darkseid's foot soldiers, we can't help but wonder what Vic will look like when his full battle mode is engaged - and what he'll truly be capable of when at full power .
#5 - The Queen Of Atlantis - The Justice League trailer also offered us our first look at Mera, the Queen Of Atlantis herself. Like Lois Lane, we're very curious to see what sort of role she'll play in the overall plot of the film. Here's hoping we see her fighting alongside the rest of the Justice League in an effort to eradicate the Parademon plague from off earth once and for all. Fans will also get to see more of Mera next year in James Wan's Aquaman.
#4 - Stick Around - Further proving that he's not your daddy's King Of Atlantis, Aquaman leaps into action during the new trailer and proves he means business. Wielding his trademark trident, Arthur Curry makes quick work of a pair of advancing Parademons - turning them into a kabob with a simple fling of his mystical weapon. We're guessing this scene may be presented in slow motion for added awesomeness - at least we're hoping so.
#3 - Evening, Commissioner - The trailer also offered up a look at the first on-screen interaction between Affleck's Batman and the new Commissioner Gordon, played by Spider-Man vet J.K. Simmons. The scene is brief, but contains a rather comedic exchange between the two characters, and a rather funny appearance by Aquaman. Clearly, Warner Bros. is making good on their promise to incorporate more humor into the DCEU moving forward.
#2 - Amazons Attack - In what appears to be a possible flashback scene, we see the Amazons taking on an invading force of Parademons, who are sure to have their hands full with these feisty female warriors when they make the dumb choice to land on Paradise Island. Seriously, did Steppenwolf think this would be a good idea or something? We're betting they'll be getting their butts kicked.
#1 - Aquaman Rides Shotgun - The biggest crowd-pleaser moment throughout the entire Justice League trailer sees Aquaman perched on the roof of the Batmobile as the Dark Knight hits the gas and shifts it into high gear. We can't wait to see how Affleck's Batman will interact with his fellow leaguers, because he's clearly the straightman of the JLU while the likes of Aquaman and Flash will be bringing the fun to match the seriousness of the Dark Knight.
In short, the new trailer for Justice League contained lots of fun stuff, so much so that we're unsure if we'll be able to wait the entire eight months before its theatrical release.
