After several teasers, Instagram posts and tweets – the second full trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League finally dropped today. The trailer provides tons of new footage. We get a deeper dive into the backstory of The Flash and Cyborg. A better look at the big baddie villain Darkseid. Superman in black and a face to face between The Batman and Joker.
Some additions that did not make its way into the trailer, but are said to be appearing. Man of Steel’s Calvin Swanwick (Harry Lennix) as the shape-shifting Martian Manhunter. As well as the return of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) opposite the assassin Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello).
The official summary provided by HBOMax is:
In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be a four hour and R-Rated affair. It premieres March 18 on HBO Max. Until then check out the trailer here.
