Wonder Woman is Front & Center in New Justice League Image

A new banner for Warner Bros.' Justice League sees Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman front and center, pushing Batman - played by Ben Affleck - to the back of the image with the other heroes.

It's not difficult to understand the choice to position Diana Prince as the figurehead of the movie in recent promotional images. Beyond its critical acclaim, Wonder Woman is the fifth-highest-grossing superhero movie ever in North America, behind only The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. The movie is currently at $410.7m domestically, and has made $816.5m worldwide so far.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Opening 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, Raymond 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, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
