It finally happened, folks. After months of anticipation, the trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League finally debuted online. It's a bombastic and badass compilation of DC moments, and I think it's safe to say that it officially has DC fans all over the world very excited about what's coming in the future of the DCEU.
On that note, we have compiled a list of the coolest moments from the Justice League trailer. Take a look at our list and let us know what badass moments you loved in this trailer in the comments section below! There are a ton of cool moments to get to, so let's kick this off with a moment from one of the most unexpectedly badass heroes in the Justice League trailer: Aquaman.
"It's On Him"
If you ever had any concerns about whether or not Aquaman would be cool in this movie, I think it's safe to say that you can now put those fears to bed. Jason Momoa IS Aquaman, and Arthur Curry's introduction tells it all by having him save someone from the ocean, drop him down in a bar, and grab a bottle of liquor as he casually walks out. Sticking someone you just saved with the tab? That's ice cold, Arthur.
Once Aquaman gets his time to shine, it's Ray Fisher's Cyborg who steps up to the plate. His first moments in the trailer show him saving a bystander from crashing Humvee, and then casually turning to tell the person that he just saved to get out of the way next time. Victor Stone is a walking arsenal, and this trailer makes it clear that he can take a serious beating and still walk it off.
The Flash In The Speed Force
After Cyborg, we get a quick (pun intended) glimpse of Barry "The Flash" Allen running through The Speed Force. Fans of the character have already seen quite a bit of the mystical speed energy in the character's show on The CW, but Zack Snyder brings a real big budget sensibility to this incarnation of the hero. Barry can clearly run fast, but it's only a matter of time before we see what else he's actually capable of.
Batman Fighting Parademons
When Barry Allen realizes that Bruce Wayne is actually the Batman, the trailer gives us one of the most gloriously Bat-tastic shots that we have ever seen. This clearly isn't Christian Bale's Batman, as The Caped Crusader swings into battle and takes down a bunch of Parademons with a wide variety of gadgets and gizmos. Bruce may not have any real powers (aside from being rich), but the guy knows how to make an entrance.
Aquaman Spearing Parademons
If there's one hero who seems to hog the spotlight in the Justice League trailer, it has to be Aquaman. In what has to be one of the coolest moments from the entire trailer, we see Arthur Curry leap through the air and skewer one of the Parademons with his badass trident. I hear this guy can talk to fish, but don't crack any jokes about it; he'll straight up murder you if you do.
Wonder Woman Vs Security Guards
The team won't just be fighting Parademons and extraterrestrial threats when Justice League finally debuts. Some humans will also receive a serious beatdown as well. Although we can't really glean any major plot details from this moment, it's clear that Wonder Woman is going to have to fight her way through some hapless security guards at some point during the film. Is Lex Luthor up to his usual tricks? We will have to wait and see.
With Superman currently down for the count, the team is going to need someone else who knows how to fly. Luckily, Cyborg apparently has the ability to fly in Justice League. It's only a quick shot, but at this moment we see his cybernetic body envelope his face as he flies high into the atmosphere and out into space. With the film's threat coming from the stars, it's clear that the team is going to need Vic Stone's badass abilities.
The Flash Vs The Parademon
Barry Allen is very clearly not going to run away from danger in Justice League. Steppenwolf's forces are coming to Earth, and The Scarlet Speedster is going to use his super speed to face off against some bizarre alien threats. In this badass moment from the Justice League trailer, we see Ezra Miller's Barry use his ability to tap into The Speed Force to avoid some deadly laser blasts -- then slam a Parademon into a wall.
We've known for quite some time that Batman has access to all sorts of toys, and Zack Snyder's Justice League puts those gadgets on full display. One of the coolest moments in the trailer shows The Dark Knight diving into a brand new vehicle (which is guaranteed to become a hot new toy for kids) and blowing away Parademons left and right in order to save Wonder Woman. Bruce doesn't have any powers, but the guy is armed to the damn teeth.
Bruce Wayne isn't the only member of the team who knows how to lead a group of heroes into battle. Wonder Woman also gets a moment where she stands shoulder to shoulder with Cyborg and Aquaman, and it's clear that the three of them are going to engage in some serious combat before this movie comes to an end. The casual "shall we?" It's a nice touch; Diana has clearly been here before.
The Amazons At War
The main heroes aren't the only ones that are going to get in on the action when Justice League debuts. The armies of Apokolips are going to invade the world, and Themyscira will answer the call of duty. Justice League's first trailer features a completely insane shot of the Amazon warriors facing off against the alien menace, and I think it's safe to say that it's one of the coolest shots in the trailer.
Aquaman Riding The Batmobile
Credit where credit is due, the folks at WB know how to punctuate the hell out of a trailer. The final shot we get from the first Justice League preview is a quick glimpse of Arthur Curry joyously riding the Batmobile into battle against the Parademons. He lets out an ecstatic "yeah!" As he rides, and he rightly should. He knows exactly how cool he looks while doing it.
Can it please be November 17 already? We're dying to see this movie.
