After years of work, DC and Warner Bros. are finally bringing their stable of superheroes together. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Wonder Woman have all helped introduce DC’s cinematic universe, with Justice League bringing them together to fend off a new enemy that threatens Earth.
While we’ve already been introduced to Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the prior films, there are some newcomers: The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), each of whom will get their own film down the road.
The film will be directed by Zack Snyder (with Joss Whedon handling the reshoots), and it finally does what Marvel did several years ago with The Avengers. Unlike Marvel, however, DC and Warner Bros. are aiming to scale back their cinematic universe after the success of Wonder Woman as a largely standalone film, and after their own missteps with the earlier entries in the franchise. We’ll find out how well it does it when the film hits theaters on November 17th.
