The end of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice left us with a “dead” superman and so far, even though we all know he’s going to return, there haven’t been any appearance of him in any of the Justice League trailers and posters we’ve seen. Well, apparently, a reddit user from a reddit subcommunity r/DCEUleaks claims to have seen leaked version of the next Justice League trailer and this is what happens according to him:
The preview starts with the same footage of Batman recruiting Flash, then logos(including the new DC logo). We cut to a montage of the team. Bruce talking to Diana at some kind of museum. Cyborg looking depressed as he walks through the hall of a high school(apparently we see him use some kind of holographic projection to blend in) with voice over from Victor saying “I never asked for this. I didn’t want to be some thing.”
We then see Aquaman in Atlantis(apparently resembles castle ruins), talking with Vulko(Willem Dafoe) about his destiny. We see a motherbox being guarded by Atlantian soldiers when out of nowhere there’s an attack. Steppenwolf takes the motherbox, Aquaman swims after him, Steppenwolf throws his axe at Aquaman & in slow motion Arthur dodges it.
We cut to Batman, WW, Flash & Cyborg being overwhelmed by parademons in some kind of tunnel, the tunnel floods and Aquaman shows up to save the team. We get the “dressed like a bat, I dig it” then Aquaman asks Batman for help. We cut to the team entering the Batcave as Flash geeks out. Voice over from Batman about the parademons (referred to them as creatures) kidnapping scientists. WW asks what’s the plan as Flash asks Alfred for some service, Alfred walks off.
Montage of action (slow mo shot of WW falling while trying to reach her sword as Flash tips it with his finger so she can grab it, Cyborg punches Aquaman as Aquaman throws him against the wall as the shot transitions into Aquaman throwing Bruce against the wall, Aquaman, WW & Flash guarding what appears to be the scout ship, Batman gliding into a parademon, Steppenwolf stepping on WW’s chest, Cyborg standing on a football field).
Flash then makes a joke about Cyborg looking like the tin man. After the JL title card we get the money shot. Batman is driving towards some kind of ship when Superman in the black suit, beard & mullet lands right in front of it, red eyes and an evil smirk(fire in the background, raining ash, great visual shot) while Batman has a look of ‘oh shit’ as the trailer ends.
Henry Cavil who plays the role of superman earlier posted a picture of a dark superman suit on his instagram page so the rumors just might be true.
Justice League is set to be released November 17th, 2017.
