As of this writing, Justice League is just two weeks away from crashing into theaters! All of DC’s finest heroes are set to face off in an epic showdown against Steppenwolf and his Parademons. However the team must first come together if they are to have any chance against this grave threat that is quickly upon them.
Warner Bros. has since released a few clips for their biggest superhero movie yet. While most of these clips are expanded upon from the trailers, there’s a great deal of new footage that has yet to be seen including Superman’s ultimate reveal. With that said, here are the clips that you can view online thanks much in part to Comicbook.com.
1. Wonder Woman Rescue
This clip should look very familiar to fans as this was the first footage shown for the new #JusticeLeague trailer that debuted at this years San Diego Comic Con. The clip showcases Gal Gadot’s #WonderWoman in all her glory as she takes down the fugitives who’ve hijacked an office building while holding hostages.
Wonder Woman is able to take down these crooks with ease and is even able to get rid of the bomb in time before it goes off. She’s also seen using her bracelets to full effect like we have watched her door in previous movies. Diana certainly hasn’t missed a beat.
2. Batman Meets Aquaman
This clip likely takes place at the beginning of the film as Bruce attempts to locate the #Aquaman. Bruce is seen here speaking to Arthur Curry as he informs him that he is “building an alliance.” Curry doesn’t appear interested at first and gives Bruce a hard time.
One aspect of this clip that I really enjoy is the slight humor that is spoken by Bruce. Bruce realizes that Aquaman does not want to get involved but asks him to at least show him where Atlantis is located. This may in fact be some of Joss Whedon’s humor we can expect out of Justice League. We should expect more of this style of jokes sprinkled throughout the film.
3. Batman Meets Flash
From one superhero to another, this clip shows Bruce Wayne introducing himself to the Flash. While we’ve seen some of this footage from the trailers, this clip does give us a pretty significant reveal; Bruce Wayne developed Flash’s superhero armor.
The Flash will no doubt become the team member who delivers the most quips when it comes to jokes. After all, this is nothing new from the comics standpoint. When asked by Bruce as to what his “special skills” are, Barry dances around the question by giving answers that aren’t related to his actual powers which include playing the viola, web design, his fluency in sign language, and competitive ice dancing. Bruce knows who he really is and throws a batarang at Barry thus revealing his powers to him.
4. Jim Gordon Meets Team
While it may be challenging to picture J. K. Simmons in a non J Jonah Jameson role, his version of Commissioner Gordon may be just what the doctor ordered. Gordon is not supposed to have a large role in this film, but his presence will certainly be felt.
This is a great scene boasting most of the Justice League members atop a building. It’s refreshing to see this team come together and their relationship with James Gordon. Even though the #Flash is the fastest member on the team, he’s a little late to the party when the rest of the members abruptly scatter.
5. Batman Inspires Flash
The Flash is the youngest member on the team and is in dire need of a pep talk and who better to give that pep talk than Batman himself. Bruce wastes no time getting the kid involved. Though the Flash is busy making excuses, Batman tells him simply to save one person at a time. Batman knows his limitations and understands that the kid is terrified, but a good coach always finds a way to get the team working together.
6. Steppenwolf Attack
Although #Cyborg takes up a good portion of this scene, it’s Steppenwolf who steal the show. After Cyborg maneuvers one of Batman’s vehicles named the Nightcrawler, he unleashes a couple of missiles directly towards their enemy.
Unfortunately for the Justice League, Steppenwolf has other ideas and easily blocks both oncoming missiles. He deflects the first one with his electro-axe and catches the second one like with his bare hand. Steppenwolf wastes no time showing how powerful he is while patronizing the Justice League calling them “primitive beings.” The team is certainly going to have a huge challenge facing off against one of DC’s strongest New Gods.
7. We Need Superman
This is by far the best released scene from Justice League because it truly shows Bruce’s change of heart for Superman. As we all know from the previous film, Batman nearly killed the son of Krypton but decided against it knowing that this was no ordinary alien but a man who cares about humanity.
Bruce wastes no time with Alfred stating that #Superman “is more human than I am.” Bruce continues to exclaim to Alfred that Superman was an alien who had all this power and basically lived as a regular human being. He had a job, a girlfriend, and a family who raised and took care of him. Bruce understands this and realizes all the good that good that Superman has done. This is why he believes that “the world needs Superman and the team needs Clark.”
Though these scenes may not change your excitement for the film, the clips do at least give you a basic idea of the tone that Snyder and Whedon were going for. The theme is bleak with world ending events, but the fun of the team working together is clearly shown. The team needs Superman in order to fully complete the Justice League.
Justice League will be in theaters on November 16th. But what did you think of these clips? Are you more or less excited for the release of Justice League? Please sound off in the comment section below and leave more your thoughts!
