More and more details have been trickling out onto the internet lately, and we’ve been nice enough to combine it all into one convenient place, just for you.
Justice League was originally planned to be the first of a two-part series that would be filmed simultaneously, but that’s been recently changed to one film. A sequel is still in the works to be released in summer 2019.
The tone of the story has been lightened significantly due to how much flack Synder’s previous DC films, including 2013’s Man Of Steel, where too dark and serious.
The story takes place three months after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and involves three Mother Boxes, a technology created by a scientist from Apokolips.
Steppenwolf has been confirmed as the main antagonist, but casting information is still under wraps.
A deleted scene Warner released on their YouTube channel from Batman Vs. Superman showed Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor on General Zod’s ship, submerged in a lake of goo. Before him stands a “statuesque being” that suddenly dissolves into the atmosphere, a being rumored to be Steppenwolf. Whatever this scene is about, it’s a tease to the story of Justice League. Watch below to discern for yourself:
And of course, the Batmobile is back!
Characters & Casting
J.K. Simmons is playing Commissioner Gordon.
Jason Momoa plays Aquaman/Arthur Curry.

Justice League is to be released on 17 November 2017.
Batman (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his new ally, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), to recruit a team of superhumans to stand against a newly awakened threat. But the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes may not be enough to save the planet from a catastrophic assault.
