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.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen and J. K. Simmons.
Justice League opens in theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
Ben Affleck returns as Batman in Justice League. After witnessing the death of Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne is forcing himself to come out of the shadows that Batman is used to occupying in order to assemble and then to become the leader of the Justice League.
“He’s been a loner for certainly his crime-fighting career, maybe with the exception of Robin,” Snyder says. “When we meet him in BvS, he’s definitely at this low point of isolation. That was always our intention, that Justice League would be this continuation for Batman to evolve into a more complete hero.”prevnext
Gal Gadot debuted as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. By the time Justice League releases, Gadot will have starred in Wonder Woman's first solo movie.
Snyder, who is a producer on Wonder Woman, says the solo film will "flesh out and realize (her island home) Themyscira and embrace canon with her and get all the elements to mash up that I love from the original stories. But also we’ll see that dovetail into not only the why of BvS, but even now the why of Justice League and who she is finally realized. We know now where she comes from.”prevnext
The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg0comments
Excluding their cameo roles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice league will also be the debut film for Ezra Miller as the Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
Snyder says each of them is important to balancing the Justice League roster and are important to the story, noting that "“they’re each such awesome personalities in the movie. You have Jason stomping around as this inked hairy man, just this mythic figure. And you’ve got Ezra, who’s full of life and hilarious and all over the place and amazing — a really fun and also poignant Flash. And Ray’s story is in a lot of the ways the heart of the movie.”prev
