Excitement for Warner Bros.' superhero ensemble film is riding high (perhaps higher than it has before) thanks to an explosive four-minute trailer coming out of the studio's Comic-Con International presentation in Hall H. However, there's no doubt a contingent of Justice League fans who would prefer to see the DC Comics team's animated incarnation make it to the big screen ahead of, in not in the place of the upcoming live-action cast.
Enter Justin Bellman, aka Twitter user @YourAvgBellman, who offered his followers a glimpse of what might have been.
The film's latest poster positions Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg behind text stating "You Can't Save The World Alone," with each word incorporating one of the character's icons into the text. Bellman celebrated the SDCC poster reveal with a version of his own, subbing in each character's iconic animated counterpart. "In honor of the #JusticeLeague trailer/poster at #SDCC today, I whipped up this DCAU Style poster," he said in the tweet's accompanying text.
For the most part, Bellman used the characters' Timmverse-style incarnations. For Cyborg, however, the artist opted to use the design from 2003's Teen Titans animated series, as the character has no real Timmverse analogue. He also re-did the text, replacing the heroes' film icons with their animated equivalent, along with the movie's logo, just for that added touch of authenticity.
Arriving Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
