The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Aquaman was up first, shortly followed by a few other teammates:
It’s also worth noting that, in the last few seconds of the teaser, we see the Batmobile unleashing it’s machine-guns on what is undoubtedly one of Darkside’s parademons, as Batman is wont to do.
Taking a look at the character poster, we see the reveal of one of the new batsuits he’ll be sporting. Unlike the previous revealed Tactical Suit, this one seems to be less armor plates and more a Kevlar weave akin to what we saw Bats sporting in Batman v Superman, however this time he’s back in black with a silver grey symbol. This is the umpteenth time we’ve seen a ‘new’ batsuit on the big screen and we all know that dude has a closest full of latex body suits in his basement. So this is another one of them.
Next, Ezra Miller‘s Flash get’s the teaser treatment in what counts as the best look so far at the big screen version of the Scarlet Speedster.
Yes, the suit. Reportedly made from re-purposed aircraft aluminum to protect Barry Allen’s super-speed antics, it has raised more than a few concerns from speed force purists. We get a quick glimpse at how director Zack Snyder will show the Flash’s super-speed on the big screen, crackling lightening and all.
Not gonna lie, kinda coulda used a shot of him smacking a parademon here.
For the sake of the completionist among you, here’s Aquaman again, this time with the new Character poster offering the best look at the King of the Seven Seas full Atlantean set of… footy pajamas? Snyder is clearly heavily leaning towards the 90’s savage warrior look for Jason Mamoa‘s Arthur Currie which might play better on the big screen that orange and green spandex, but something about this green and gold scale maille seems a bit off.
Luckily in the teaser we see that the King of Atlantis spends a lot of time shirtless and doing what Aquaman does best,
talking to fish drinking and enjoying high tide.
Number of parademons punched: 0.
Last but not least, the teaser poster. Yep. That’s a teaser poster. Here’s the official synopsis if you haven’t read it yet:
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.
Granted, if you’ve been following Justice League’s two-plus years of production you may also recall that before the hashtag #UniteTheLeague there was #UniteTheSeven meaning that we’re still missing one. Possible a emerald man of mystery. A certain Green do-gooder.
So… Ambush Bug?
