While Batman isn't exactly the most talkative member of the Justice League, he was surprisingly involved in or responsible for some of the best lines and scenarios in the newest trailer for the anticipated film.

Justice League currently has a 4.09 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, a rating that has gone up a bit since the trailer dropped earlier this morning. You can view the full synopsis below.
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. 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.

It's Already Here
In the opening scenes of the new Justice League trailer, Bruce is seen on horseback as he makes his way to a remote village. He's on the way to meet Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman for the first time, with Bruce's narration stressing the importance of coming together to protect the world from an approaching threat.
Bruce narrates "We have to be ready. You, me, the others. There's an attack coming from far away." The tone is set perfectly cemented with Wonder Woman's voice breaking the bad news, saying "Not coming Bruce. It's already here."prevnext
One of the best lines in the new footage is an exchange between The Flash and Batman, though both are not in costume. As Bruce is driving them to an unknown location, Flash says "What are your superpowers again?"
Bruce smiles and says "I'm rich". That would explain being able to build that giant Bat Crawler vehicle fans see later on.prevnext
Batman might not have any powers per say, but that doesn't mean he is any less deadly than the rest of the team. He shows just how deadly he is when an altercation inside an enclosed location becomes a bit overwhelming. He dives inside his secret weapon, a Bat Crawler vehicle that can scale the walls.
As he enters the cockpit he says simply "My turn" and unleashes a heavy assault of artillery. The theme? Don't mess with Batman.prevnext
Playing Well With Others
Towards the end of the trailer, fans get a bigger glimpse of J.K. Simmons' Commissioner Gordon. The two have a long history together, but Gordon's quote doesn't just relate to his past with Batman. Upon the emergence of Aquaman by the Bat signal, Gordon says "It's good to see you playing well with others again", referring to Batman's penchant for being a lone wolf.
It just takes one comment from Aquaman though for Batman to reconsider, saying "It may be temporary."prevnext
Dressed Like A Bat
That aforementioned comment is one of the trailer's other big highlights, and it comes from the scene-stealer himself Aquaman. That status was already claimed thanks to his riding shotgun on the Batmobile, leaping to the sky to take out some Parademons.0comments
He outdoes himself though by looking at Commissioner Gordon and Batman by the Bat signal. This might be the first time Aquaman has seen Batman in full costume, as the first time they met he was just in civilian clothes. Aquaman gives Batman a once over and says "Dressed like a Bat. I dig it."
Comments like these just might compel Batman to go back to working alone.prev
