Despite the critical reception to BvS being mixed (and that’s being kind), Warner Bros decided to forge ahead with the original plan for Justice League, albeit with some adjustments.
Then at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Snyder and the cast of Justice League hit Hall H with a hell of a presentation for fans, including a new trailer that looked fun, and dare I say it, even Marvel-esque.
In 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.
Darkseid, the DCU’s biggest bad himself, is said to be making a cameo, leading to a bigger role in the sequel, but it’s not 100% confirmed.
Rounding out the cast are Game of Thrones’ Ciarán Hinds as the villainous alien general Steppenwolf; actress Amber Heard as the Atlantean Queen Mera; and Kiersey Clemons, who will portray Iris West, the Flash’s girlfriend.
