New Justice League Spot Boasts a Bunch of new Footage
There is a surprising amount of new footage packed into this 30 second TV spot for Justice League. What we’re loving is how the most unsung hero of the group, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, seems to be doing a lot of the heavy lifting here. As we wrote earlier this week, Cyborg is arguably the most complex member of the League, a half man, half machine former athlete turned into a lonely, extremely powerful android (of sorts), capable of communicating with and breaking down computers and other digital systems, while packing a helluva punch in the physical world. Cyborg’s skills are myriad, and will no doubt come in handy as the League battles a foe who wage war on multiple fronts and in multiple realms.
Amongst the new (blink brief) footage in this spot, look for Cyborg to help both Ezra Miller’s Flash and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, directing the insane traffic, so to speak, as the League battles Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army. We see more of Steppenwolf in this brief spot than we’ve seen in much of the previous promo material. The film, co-directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon, who stepped in when Snyder had to attend to personal business, looks downright epic, and note we haven’t even mentioned Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), or Superman (Henry Cavill), who will, at some point, make his grand return from the grave.
Justice League opens on November 17. Tickets are on sale now.
