Warner Bros and DC went beyond the call of duty when they released that Justice League preview at San Diego Comic-Con last year, 16 months before the movie's release! Nevertheless, fans have been craving a proper trailer for the DC Extended Universe's highly-anticipated superhero team-up movie, and that craving was finally satisfied today. The new Justice League trailer primarily focused on action and spotlighting the early team dynamics with Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg. Which was wise, as studios should know by now that's it's not a good idea to reveal too much plot information early on in these kinds of previews.

However, there will also a few appreciated surprises thrown into the new Justice League trailer, from seeing certain characters for the first time to shots that pull back the curtain a little bit on the DCEU's history. Here are the six biggest surprises you need to know about.

Commissioner Gordon

Ben Affleck's Batman has been fighting crime for over two decades, meaning he's also been allies with Commissioner James Gordon for a significant portion of that time. J.K. Simmons is debuting as the DCEU's Gordon in Justice League, and while the actor says that his role is minor, it's still good to see a moment between these versions of the shadowy vigilante and the Gotham City Police Department head honcho. Gordon's "playing well with others" line also subtly calls back to Batman's past partners, as it's been a while since Batman has fought beside others in his mission of justice. We know that at least one Robin died as evidenced by that memorial in the Batcave, but we haven't learned yet what folks like Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon are up to nowadays. Regardless, Gordon's worked with Batman through thick and thin, so seeing him with the other Justice Leaguers is a good sign that his ally is taking steps towards improvement. Simmons' Gordon is expected to return in the solo Batman movie, whenever that's released.
