To say that there’s a lot riding on Zack Snyder’s Justice League would probably be the understatement of the year. Warner Bros.’ DC universe hasn’t exactly taken off as they’d no doubt hoped it would, what with the disappointing box office returns for Batman V Superman, not to mention some pretty awful reviews. While the Ultimate Edition did go some way in redeeming the film’s public image, it’s still very much considered a stumble for the studio.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad came next and while it was marginally more enjoyable and provided impressive profits, it was also thought to be more of a misfire than anything else. As such, all eyes are now on Warner Bros. to see what their next move is.
Wonder Woman will be with us in June, and while reactions to the first two trailers seem to be positive so far, for the most part, it’s really Justice League that everything is hinging on. If that film fails, then it will be near impossible for Warner Bros. to redeem themselves in the eyes of fans. This is the movie that we’ve been waiting forever to see on the big screen, and after botching Batman V Superman, they need to get it right.
Thankfully, we’ve been hearing some reassuring things about Snyder’s upcoming effort. A recent sizzle reel (seen above) definitely had people excited, and according to the cast, it’s going to be totally different from Dawn of Justice. Plus, with an appearance from Deathstroke to look forward to, not to mention a badass James Gordon, it seems that there still may be hope for the DCEU.
Whether or not Justice League can deliver obviously remains to be seen, but we’ll be getting a better idea of the film’s chances of success very soon, as a new trailer is set to debut. That’s according to DC All Access, who teased as much in a recent Tweet. They wouldn’t say when or where you can expect to see it, but if it’s already being teased, we imagine it’ll arrive before the year’s end.

With the film only 12 months away now, it makes sense that the marketing machine would be kicking into high gear. After all, we still haven’t seen a whole lot from it, and with so much riding on the blockbuster, Warner Bros. would be wise to get people on board before it hits theatres.
Justice League will finally be with us on November 17th, 2017 and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Amy Adams, Ray Fisher and many more.
