A Battle-Ready Superman Rubs Shoulders With The Justice League In New Cast Photo


One week out from D-day, and Superman’s presence in Justice League has ostensibly become something of an open secret.

Despite its best attempts to keep the Man of Steel off every piece of promotional material in the land, Warner Bros. has struggled to keep a lid on Henry Cavill’s involvement, and that’s before you factor in those extensive reshoots conducted by Joss Whedon (Avengers, Batgirl).

Back then, the Internet became fixated on Cavill’s facial hair – the pornstar mustache, as it is now commonly known – which will be digitally removed in post. From what we understand, the towering actor was contractually obliged to retain his lip fuzz in the name of Mission: Impossible 6, and it was only when Justice League‘s production ran into overtime that problems started to arise.

But make no mistake, Superman has a role to play in the Zack Snyder tentpole, as evidenced by this newly-uncovered cast photo that places him among DC’s finest.

First spotted by CBM, this awesome shot comes hand-in-hand with a fresh batch of behind-the-scenes photos. Originally included in Entertainment Weekly – The Ultimate Guide to Justice League, above you’ll see candid images of Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne, along with a close-up of Ray Fisher’s Cyborg (pre-CG) confronting an unarmed goon.

Meanwhile, here’s the logline for EW’s companion book, which is available to purchase from today:

They’re all here—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, the Flash and, yes, Superman—with character profiles, concept art, costumes, origin stories and more. Stuffed with insider information, including a history of the Justice League in comic-book form and a discussion of each superhero’s or -heroine’s past and future on the big screen, this comprehensive guide will delight readers of all ages. Interviews with the cast, including Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Henry Cavill, are featured. It’s time to join the battle for the future of the world!

Justice League is now so close we can almost feel the crackle of energy emanating from Steppenwolf’s almighty ax, and you’ll be pleased to note that the first reviews will begin appearing online at exactly 11:50 pm PST on Tuesday, November 14th – or 2:50 am EST on the Wednesday, if you happen to live on the East Coast.
