Final JUSTICE LEAGUE Trailer Teases Superman's Return

In the rush to introduce us to four new superheroes, the Justice League marketing has spent precious little time on the villains of the film - beyond plenty of disposable parademons for our heroes to crunch through. This trailer seems to combine Zack Snyder's visual polish and talent for action scenes with Whedon's gift of giving characters tons of heart and humor. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) clear the path for Batman.

Steppenwolf first appeared in 1972 in the New Gods #7 comic book. That's a bit more inspirational than the hard-driving "Come Together" cover in the previous trailer.

The new footage features the first footage of Superman (Henry Cavill), new glimpses of epic action, and a couple amusing dialogue exchanges that may (or may not) show new director Joss Whedon's influence. This is likely a response to the criticism of the final battle from Man of Steel.

Well, almost. But hopefully, this is the beginning of getting Superman right in these DC movies. When juxtaposed with the scene from the 1978 film in which a young Clark Kent tells Martha he needs to head north, we can see certain interesting elements.

Over the weekend, the Justice League Twitter announced there would be a trailer that debuts on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 9:00 a.m. ET. The superhero conglomerate was traditionally called the Justice League of America, but Warner Bros. opted to drop the last part, perhaps in an attempt to appeal to a global audience.

Justice League is set to hit theatres in about a month. Whether or not we'll see him is a mystery, but at the very least he'll probably be a looming threat for future movies, much like Thanos has been for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Maybe it's from late in the film, after Superman has arrived to help save the day, again.

Will one of them be Superman? Jeremy Irons' Alfred asks Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne. This is gonna be fun!

Co-starring Ezra Miller (who naturally gets another amusing one-liner), J.K. Simmons, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Connie Nielsen, Amber Heard, and Willem Dafoe, Justice League opens on November 17, 2017.
