Exclusive new Justice League image shows the team tooled up

It's been all quiet on the Justice League (opens in new tab) front of late, but all that's about to change because the new issue of Total Film magazine (opens in new tab) - out this Friday - contains a world exclusive look at DC's upcoming blockbuster team-up movie. 

What's that? You can't wait until then? Well, it's a good job we have an exclusive new image to keep you entertained until then. Feast your peepers on half the (meta)human League in action below.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is leading the charge, flanked by Jason Momoa’s trident-wielding Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, who's picked up a snazzy, luminescent gun arm since he was last glimpsed in Batman v Superman (opens in new tab)

But who is about to face the wrath of some clearly miffed metas? And, more importantly, where are they? The smart money’s on this being a vessel from Darkseid's homeworld Apokolips, and that the League is staring down a corridor of Parademons, or maybe even Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) in all his horny glory. Notable by their absence – Ben Affleck’s Batman, Ezra Miller’s Flash and, of course, Henry Cavill’s Superman, who are no doubt puzzling over how to resurrect the allegedly dead Kryptonian.

Though the DCEU got off to a rocky start, 2017 could be the year all that changes. Wonder Woman (opens in new tab)’s solo movie is just a few months away and Justice League is looking to right the wrongs of the dour Dawn of Justice, primarily by injecting a sense of fun into proceedings.

It's a sentiment director Zack Snyder reiterates. “One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of characters, inherently larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team,” Snyder says. “It not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. 

"It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast – their chemistry really adds to that dynamic.” 

Only time will tell if Snyder and his cast can do the League justice.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciarin Hinds and JK Simmons, Justice League hits cinemas on November 17, 2017.
