Justice League Calendar Offers A Sneak Peek At Superman Dressed In Blue


For a figure that has been largely absent from the Justice League marketing blitz hitherto, Superman has caused an awful lot of debate online.

Those who are fully up-to-date with the DC Extended Universe will know that Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel died in the battle against Doomsday at the tail end of Batman V Superman, leaving the world to fall into disarray without its untainted beacon of hope leading by example. Crime rates are through the roof, and to make matters worse, Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader has been totally absent from Metropolis and Gotham City. Or has he?

To prepare for the oncoming Steppenwolf, the Dark Knight and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman have been busy tracking down the remaining metahumans – namely Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg – to mount a defense against Ciaran Hinds’ alien entity and his army of winged Parademons. Steppenwolf is ostensibly the devil reincarnate, so it’s small wonder why Bruce Wayne has sent Alfred (Jeremy Irons) off on a mission to retrieve the Man of Steel (or should that be Green Lantern?). Either way, thanks to the official 2018 Justice League calendar, today brings forth another close-up of Henry Cavill’s Kryptonian all dressed in blue – along with a few other interesting shots of the team.

Outside of the core six, we know that Warner Bros. has filled its cast with the likes of Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Amber Heard as Mera and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Justice League has been slated for release on November 17th. Look for further details on the official 2018 calendar (including a price and release date) to emerge over the coming days, while earlier this morning we brought you an all-new action shot of Amber Heard suited and booted as Mera, Queen of Atlantis.
