While we’re fully well aware that the wait for Justice League is arguably harder to endure now more than ever due to opening weekend being right around the corner, the folks at Warner Bros. marketing are at least helping us pass the time.
Basically, what they’re doing is taking each week leading up to the super team’s big screen debut and making them all about each individual member. A few weeks ago, they kicked things off in style by focusing on Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and then, it was the Flash who enjoyed the spotlight. Just last week, meanwhile, Wonder Woman and Cyborg got to share the glory.
Being a lifelong Dark Knight devotee, I’ll be brave and bold by saying that they saved the best for last because, as you may know, Batman Week began yesterday. As we’ve come to expect, a trailer focused heavily on Ben Affleck’s supremely badass Caped Crusader was among the first goodies we were treated to.

This time, though, the latest promotional material comes in the form of a motion poster. And much like those featuring Bruce Wayne’s cohorts, it highlights his dual nature. For years, fans and scholars alike have argued this quality is much more than skin deep for Batman, but for now, we’ll take a moment to admire it on a superficial level.
With Justice League‘s November 17 debut being just over two weeks away though, one can’t help but wonder if either Superman or even Steppenwolf will step into the spotlight next. As always, keep watching this space for more.
