Many are anticipating seeing the Justice League assemble for the first time on the big screen, but there wouldn't be a league without Wonder Woman.
Granted, Batman is vitally important to the team's origins as well, but Wonder Woman is even more in the spotlight thanks to the success of Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's solo outing.
As you might recall, Wonder Woman ended back in the modern day, bringing things back to the shortly after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was in that film that the violent Doomsday threat brought her back into action, helping Superman and Batman turn the tide.
Gadot recently explained how the character has changed since fans last saw her.
"She's grown up — it's been a century, after all!," Gadot told US Weekly. "She'll bring her specific qualities to a group dynamic, and she understands the enemy better than anyone else."
That stems from the Amazons having plenty of experience in the Parademon department, something the narration on Justice League's recent trailers readily suggest.
As for her new partners in heroism, Gadot feels her and Bruce already have some worthwhile time invested in working as a team.
"Since they've fought together, they know each other's strengths. They also understand the hope Superman stood for, that was lost [when he died], so they feel that more than the others."
Superman managed to take down Doomsday for good in Batman V Superman, but it cost him his life in the process. It is understood that he will resurface once again in Justice League, though it isn't known how he will do so and if that will first be as a villain or the hero they all remember.
Regardless of when he returns, Wonder Woman and Batman should have no issues holding down the fort until he comes back.

Amazons, Gods, & the Justice League
In the Justice League footage released thus far, an epic battle between can be seen that pits the Amazons, Atlanteans, and other beings against a swarm of Parademons and warriors, presumably the armies of Darkseid.
Those other beings are referred to as the Old Gods by Justice League producer Charles Roven, and the battle at hand affected the splitting of the Mother Boxes.
"Back before history, mankind, the Atlanteans before they were underwater, the Amazonians (sic), and actually the Old Gods, teamed together and decided that, based on an event that happened, these Mother Boxes were going to be divided between the three non-god groups," Roven said.
This could be what Steppenwolf is referring to when he says Earth is unprotected. He mentions Green Lanterns and the Kryptonian by name, but he is also probably referring to the death of the Gods that previously protected the planet.

The Mother Boxes are powerful artifacts that can be used in a variety of ways, though more often than not they are used to open Boom Tubes that allow travel to far off places in the galaxy.
Justice League will revolve around these Mother Boxes, specifically three of them that were split up amongst Earth's protectors after they defeated the armies of Apokolips.
The first resides in Themyscira, given to the Amazons. The second resides in Atlantis, protected by the Atlantean army. The third was given to the humans for safekeeping, and as Wonder Woman showed the powerful item resurfaced during World War I.
That Mother Box seems to be the same Mother Box that helped to create Cyborg, who will be an integral member of the Justice League.0comments
How Steppenwolf plans to use these is unknown, but just know they will play a big part in whatever his mission ends up being.
