The Warner Bros. panel in Hall H today at San Diego Comic-Con is both the most-anticipated event and one the Con's biggest mysteries. Because there is so much that CAN be announced at the panel, we're all left wondering what exactly WILL be revealed. While we hope that there will be some clarity on the DCEU film slate, we know for a fact that Justice League is coming in November, and is expected to have a major presence in the Hall this morning. Which is why this poster just dropped, teasing fans:
Switching its catchphrase from "Unite the Seven" to "You Can't Save The World Alone" is a wise enough choice for Justice League. And I'm excited because certain letters in the phrase signify the symbols of the major Justice League players... and yes, that includes Superman, whose "S" is part of the word "Save."
What do you guys think of the poster? In a way, it shows off heroes we have seen in promotional images already, uniting the five that have been talked about without showing us what Kal-El will look like during his return, or even hinting at the villain, Steppenwolf. And yet, something about it screams Alex Ross, and I sure prefer it over the recent trend of badly photoshopped cast-montage images that have come out for every major superhero movie in recent memory. This, to me, is different. It's getting me excited.
Do you know what will get us REALLY excited? A new Justice League trailer. The superhero ensemble movie brought a clip to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con last year, so the build up on the hype for the November release has been percolating for quite some time. Now we need a payoff. We expect a trailer for Justice League to drop today during the Hall H panel, and of course, we'll have it on CinemaBlend as soon as it's available.
Justice League builds on the events of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) realizes that he needs much stronger allies to handle evil forces that are threatening our planet. If Superman and Wonder Woman exist, and a villain like Lex Luthor can create Doomsday, then Batman will have to unite a league of superheroes -- including Cyborg (Ray Fisher), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa).
Justice League was directed by Zack Snyder, until he left the film for personal reasons and passed the baton to Joss Whedon. We hope to have a lot more information on this transition when the Hall H panel happens today, so keep it locked here for all of the details as they drop.
While today's official Justice League poster didn't feature Superman, one fan took it upon themselves to explain his absence in a different poster, and now it makes sense why the Man of Steel couldn't pose with his fellow superheroes.
See? Someone had to take the picture, and that duty fell to Kal-El! I mean, they could have just used a digital camera and set a delay, but I guess the team decided for this particular occasion, it was better to go old school. In any case, this Justice League poster from Twitter user @cornettogod provides a good excuse for why Superman didn't grace our presence, but it makes us all the more eager to see him back in action this fall.
