2017 is going to be a make or break year for the DC Extended Universe. That’s weird to say given its bold entry into the shared universe sweepstakes this year, but let’s face: given the reaction to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, there’s a lot of work to be done in getting all the fans onboard. Warner Bros., of course, is eager to make converts of everyone, even opening up the set of Justice League to film critics earlier this year. Now, as we really look forward to the new year, the studio is again hoping to tease us in a positive way, with the following picture that sees three key Leaguers themselves look to the future.
Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly is this new pic from Justice League, featuring Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and the Flash (Ezra Miller). According to ComicBook.com, this scene is set in Gotham City after the trio are given intel by Commissioner Gordon that this abandoned building might be the location where a nest of parademons are holding up. (In case you don’t know, parademons are those flying creatures from the dream sequence/vision in BvS.)
In some side scoop, Miller also shared with EW how his character fits into the group dynamic. “He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone,” Miller said. “Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too. (He’s had a long life of fighting crime.) Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she’s annoyed with the Flash, she’s still very compassionate.” Of course, if you called me “Uncle Fish” I wouldn’t like you either.
Justice League will be in theatres everywhere on November 17, 2017.
