I know Warner Bros is trying to preserve the mystery of Superman’s return in “Justice League” but it’s seriously the world’s worst-kept secret. Everyone knows he will be back, we just don’t know how or at what point in the movie. So until then, it looks like the studio is going to keep playing coy at his appearance.
Today’s piece of marketing is a good example. This still from the film finally assembles the entire team for the first time. Even Aquaman, who has always been shown thus far being a separate entity from the team, is now in the same shot. But still no Kal-El. Oh well, all the same, it’s good to see them together. I am not loving Batman’s new armour, nor The Flash’s, but Aquaman looks pretty damn badass, no?
Here’s the official synopsis: “Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist 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.”
