The Justice League Strike A Pose On High-Definition Character Posters


As the release of Justice League draws closer – November 17th is the date for your calendar – the film’s marketing campaign continues to ramp up, and though the full-on blitz hasn’t begun just yet (though we imagine it’s coming any day now), we are starting to get some tasty appetizers here and there to tide us over.

A batch of new high-definition character posters that’ve been released today certainly fall into that category, and while they don’t reveal anything at all about the plot or shed any light on all those recent rumors surrounding the pic, they do give us a good look at the titular heroes, as each one gets their own one-sheet.

Well, that is, each one of them except for Superman. Kept out of the spotlight once again, the posters here only feature Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Batman and Cyborg, along with one shot of the team all together.

Check them out in the gallery below:

Again, they’re not much, but we’ll take what we can get. After all, it’s been a long, meandering journey to release for the film. Back when the crossover project was first conceived, the Powers That Be over at Warner Bros. envisioned Justice League as a two-part epic – not unlike Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, which is currently shooting scenes in Atlanta – before it was announced that Zack Snyder’s ensemble piece would be consolidated into a single movie.

That was before the director stepped away from the DCEU to tend to a personal tragedy, leaving the door open for two-time Avengers helmer Joss Whedon. It’s a switcheroo that sparked heated debate online, though many of Justice League‘s leading stars – Gal Gadot included – have been quick to stress that Whedon is simply “fine-tuning” JL, rather than completely upending Zack Snyder’s groundwork.

Whether there’s any truth to that or not will be revealed quite soon, as Justice League swoops into theaters on November 17th, when the blockbuster will become the fifth entry into the DC Extended Universe to date. But can it channel the smashing success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie? Or will it struggle to overcome the hurdles and production woes that befell Suicide Squad? Only time will tell.

Beyond 2017, and aside from locking down a late 2019 release date for Wonder Woman 2, Warner Bros. has been coy about its future plans for the DCEU, but there have been rumblings that David Sandberg’s Shazam movie – a film that is seemingly much more light-heartened when compared to the rest of WB’s superhero output – is next in line to enter production ahead of its debut in the early stages of 2019.
