What We Know So Far About the Upcoming 'Justice League' Film
Will the Justice League successfully translate to the silver screen?
Since the production for Zack Snyder’s Justice League film began shooting in April, there has been much speculation about the plot and details, but a recent press visit to the London set has revealed much about the upcoming film — and things seems promising to say the least. Due to the high volume of characters and plotlines to include into this one movie, Warner Bros. initially stated this would be a two-part film, but producer Deborah Snyder has since confirmed that this would be a single film, of course leaving room for sequels. With an already star-studded cast comprised of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe has since joined the cast as an Atlantean named Vulko. Check out the official synopsis as well as more details from the film below.
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.
Uproxx reports the villain for the film has been announced as Steppenwolf, who plans to invade Earth with an army of ‘Parademons.’ Teased at the end of Batman v Superman, Steppenwolf was seen carrying alien ‘mother boxes.’ Multiple mother boxes will appear in Justice League in the possession of Amazonians and Atlanteans, which will tie in Wonder Woman and Aquaman to the story.
According to Collider, Ray Allen’s Cyborg will be created digitally from the neck down. We saw his character shown in Batman v Superman as a partially destroyed body fused with alien technology from a mother box.
The Flash’s suit will be composed of up to 148 pieces with the headpiece having 70 different pieces in itself. It will be more complex than what we see Grant Gustin wearing on the CW’s portrayal of the Flash.
Ben Affleck has stated that there will be room for more humor in this film, and will have a different tone than Batman v Superman. Additionally the standalone Batman film may not meet its previously announced release date due to Affleck not being completely satisfied with the script. Knowing how important the character is, he wants to make sure the film will meet his high standards.
