Although there is no official word yet on a new trailer for DC’s November superhero extravaganza Justice League, it would seem to be a fairly safe bet that one is on the way to feature in front of Warner Bros.’ primary summer tentpole release, Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic story Dunkirk.
As it happens, Reddit user DCVMARVEL claims to have some inside sources who have spilled the beans regarding details on the new trailer. The user also mentions that Superman is featured at the end, which actually isn’t too surprising as DC will want uninformed viewers aware that the Man of Steel is returning. Anyway, below is a complete breakdown of the trailer, with Superman’s appearance noted at the end.
”The trailer starts with the same footage of Batman recruiting Flash, then logos (including the new DC logo). We cut to a montage of the team. Bruce talking to Diana at some kind of museum. Cyborg looking depressed as he walks through the hall of a high school (apparently we see him use some kind of holographic projection to blend in) with voiceover from Victor saying ”I never asked for this. I didn’t want to be some thing.
We then see Aquaman in Atlantis (apparently resembles castle ruins), talking with Vulko (Willem Dafoe) about his destiny. We see a Mother Box being guarded by Atlantean soldiers when out of nowhere there’s an attack. Steppenwolf takes the Mother Box, Aquaman swims after him, Steppenwolf throws his axe at Aquaman & in slow motion, Arthur dodges it.
We cut to Batman, WW, Flash & Cyborg being overwhelmed by Parademons in some kind of tunnel, the tunnel floods, and Aquaman shows up to save the team. We get the ”dressed like a bat, I dig it” then Aquaman asks Batman for help. We cut to the team entering the Batcave as Flash geeks out. voice over from Batman about the Parademons (referred to them as creatures) kidnapping scientists. WW asks what’s the plan as Flash asks Alfred for some service, Alfred walks off.
Montage of action (slow mo shot of WW falling while trying to reach her sword as flash tips it with his finger so she can grab it, Cyborg punches Aquaman as Aquaman throws him against the wall as the shot transitions into Aquaman throwing Bruce against the wall, Aquaman WW & Flash guarding what appears to be the scout ship, Batman gliding into a Parademon, Steppenwolf stepping on WW’s chest, Cyborg standing on a football field). Flash then makes a joke about Cyborg looking like the tin man
After the JL title card, we get the money shot. Batman is driving towards some kind of ship when Superman in the new suit, beard, and mullet lands right in front of it, red eyes and an evil smirk (fire in the background, raining ash, great visual shot) while Batman has a look of “oh, s%$&” as the trailer ends.”
Aside from the mullet, everything mentioned is in line with what we know about Justice League thus far. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new trailer is classified soon, but whether this description is accurate or not is anyone’s guess.
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.
