Although Man of Steel kicked off the DC Extended Universe in 2013, 2016 marks the year it all really gets going. So far we’ve seen good looks at four heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Now, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice only a few months away, we finally have our first peek at the other two Justice Leaguers appearing in the blockbuster: The Flash and Cyborg. Check it out!
A new Facebook page launched today, called DC Films Official, and so far the only two pieces of content they’ve posted are the DC Films logo (which you can see below) and this concept art of the Justice League members. Warner Bros has since confirmed that this image is legitimate. Presumably this piece will be seen on tonight’s CW special DC Film’s Present: Dawn of the Justice League, which is not only going behind the scenes on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Wonder Woman, but also featuring the new Suicide Squad trailer.
Since Flash is in the corner and dealing with major glare, it’s hard to make out exact details on his costume, but a couple things are noticeable. Namely, his costume is that familiar shade of red, as opposed to the TV Flash, who is currently rocking a crimson look. The lightning bolt logo on Ezra Miller Flash’s chest is also much larger than usual, though it doesn’t look like there’s the white circle behind it. Moving over to Cyborg, he looks like his standard, sleek and silver self, complete with cybernetic eye, though we can’t tell whether he has his cannon arm. As for the other heroes, they look just like they have in other images, though I believe this is the first time we’ve seen Jason Momoa’s Aquaman from the waist down (excluding pictures of him in toy form).
DC Comics fans will notice that there’s one notable hero missing from the lineup: Green Lantern. Aside from 2020’s Green Lantern Corps, it’s been heavily reported that he’ll also be part of the DCEU’s Justice League, just like in the comics (though we still don’t know if it will be Hal Jordan or John Stewart). So not seeing him with the other six heroes is weird, especially considering he was a founding member of the New 52 Justice League, which is what the DCEU team is based off of. This could just be because they haven’t found the actor to play him yet, but it’s possible that the Emerald Knight’s introduction is being saved for the end of Justice League: Part One or even 2019’s Justice League: Part Two. So even though the other six are raring to go, we may have to wait longer to see the ring slinger.
At the very least, we’ll see Flash and Cyborg officially join forces with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman when Justice League: Part One is released on November 17, 2017.
