With its November 17th release date not too far off now, the marketing machine for Justice League has really kicked into high gear. Just yesterday, we learned that the third and final trailer will be here this weekend, and to accompany that news, we also got five beautiful character portraits. Yes, only five.
Acting as a timely companion piece to those technicolor one-sheets, they focused on Justice League‘s founding members: Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg. Conspicuous by his absence? Superman, of course, though that’s really been the story of the marketing blitz ever since the Man of Steel was laid to rest at the tail-end of Dawn of Justice.
That being said, if you peer close enough you’ll notice that Kal-El’s iconic symbol of hope is included on each poster, so even if Supes has spent the past few months waiting in the wings, Warner Bros. is still ensuring that his presence is felt in anticipation of JL‘s release. But of course, the Man of Steel wasn’t the only one missing from the one-sheets, as there was no sign of Green Lantern, either.
Granted, the character hasn’t been confirmed for the film just yet, but at this point it’s looking very likely and so, fan artist Boss Logic has taken it up himself to include Hal Jordan here, giving him his very own poster to fit in with the rest.
Pretty cool, right? One popular theory doing the rounds is that Steppenwolf will brainwash Green Lantern to use him against the titular team, similar to how Loki called upon the Tesseract to seize control of Clint Barton (AKA Hawkeye) in the first Avengers movie. Chalk that up as speculation for now, but there has been some evidence to support it and if true, then an evil Superman may be the least of the League’s worries.
Ready to go all in? Justice League debuts November 17th, and you can readily expect the new and final trailer to bring the Internet to a standstill this Sunday, October 6th. Keep your peepers peeled on We Got This Covered over the coming days as we’ll be bringing you all the latest relating to Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s DC blockbuster, the latter of whom recently earned a screenwriting credit for his contribution.
