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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.

Affleck spoke about Batman in the new film.

“He’s a little bit more sardonic, a little more irony,” Affleck told reporters. “He’s a little more of a man on a mission this time. As opposed to, he was so full of anger because of what happened at the Black Zero Event. That sort of rage that possessed him. And now he’s on a mission to get this group together; to constitute this League. But more of that sort of Bruce Wayne, wry, ironic gallows humor comes out. He’s not like a ‘haha’ jokey, but that sort of stuff comes out a little bit. A bit of his darker humor is present.”

Okay, some spoilers ahead.

We knew that Willem Dafoe was going to be in Justice League and it is now revealed he will be playing Vulko, an Atlantean who is usually an advisor for Aquaman.

As for who they will be fighting, well it won’t be Darkseid. Instead it will be the rumoured Steppenwolf. Apokolips’ esteemed general, and uncle of Darkseid. Steppenwolf’s “Justice League” role was foreshadowed in a deleted “Batman v Superman” post-credit scene, available on the Ultimate Edition Blu-ray. You can watch that here.

Then there is the new Batmobile, which you can see below.

The movie will introduce the “Flying Fox,” a large airship for team travel – big enough to fit the Batmobile inside. A set hasn’t yet been built for the Flying Fox,but concept art was shown to press, though it has not yet been released wide and photos were not allowed during the set visit.

“It’s big enough for the Batmobile and it can house other Bat-gadgets,” DC Films producer Charles Roven told reporters. “It’s definitely its own self-contained, fantastic piece of equipment.”

Along with the Flying Fox, “Justice League” also adds a one-person vehicle called the “Nightcrawler,” a smaller piece of Batman-created tech that will sport multiple legs, designed to shimmy through tight spaces. No pictures have yet been shared publicly of the Nightcrawler.

“There’s an action set piece — we’re gonna take you to this tunnel,” franchise producer Deborah Snyder told reporters. “It’s a tunnel they were gonna build between Metropolis and Gotham and it had been abandoned, so the project never really went forward. But there’s abandoned remains of what started to be this tunnel. It’s pretty hard to get the Batmobile through there, so it’s nice to have the Crawler, which can maneuver.”

What do you think of all that?

Justice League is due out on 17th November 2017.
