Warner Bros. has announced today that they will be airing a new half hour special on January 19th (following the midseason premiere of The Flash on The CW) titled DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League. It’s going to feature the world premiere of the new trailer for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, while also giving us a ton of major reveals about the future of the DC Extended Universe.
Here’s the official synopsis for the special, courtesy of the network:
“DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe, culminating in the thrilling world premiere of the all-new trailer for “Suicide Squad,” DC’s misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC’s greatest heroes, kicking off with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” in theatres this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.”
That sounds absolutely incredible, and the press release actually goes on to promise interviews with the likes of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, as well as directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins, which should be very interesting for fans.
It sounds like as well as the trailer, there will also be some behind the scenes details on Suicide Squad sprinkled throughout, too. While much of this will no doubt wind up online – and right here on WGTC – it will certainly be a must-watch for fans of the DC Extended Universe.
