A short, new promo for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League reveals footage that brings together the nascent superhero group for a little action fans have seen before, but also a dash of dialogue and personal interaction that’s brand-new.
The video reiterates Bruce Wayne’s reason for assembling such a team of metahumans: Steppenwolf, Darkseid’s herald, is on his way to Earth, ready to conquer our defenseless little planet after it was left unprotected by the death of Superman. Luckily, Earth isn’t that defenseless, as the team of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cybrog, Aquaman and the Flash have come together to fend off the alien invaders.
Perhaps the best new bit of footage is an ill-advised attempt by a SWAT team member to knock Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman unconscious with his rifle butt. Naturally, the strike has little effect on a warrior of Diana’s caliber and she retaliates with a blast from her bracers.
Debuting in theaters on Nov. 17, Justice League is a production of DC Films directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen and J. K. Simmons.
