San Diego Comic-Con is just beginning with much anticipation riding on the live action comic book properties. Justice League will be one of those movies making a huge splash this year. The film has already given us a few looks in toy form of the head villain, Steppenwolf. It's also unveiled Bruce Wayne’s Batmobile. Now, Warner Bros. has released a few SDCC props showcasing the film's primary MacGuffins, the Mother Boxes.
A deleted scene from #BatmanvSuperman gave us our first look at the Mother Boxes as well as the first appearance of #Steppenwolf. Audiences also watched as Victor Stone’s father utilize one of the Mother Boxes to help revive his own son, turning him into a Cyborg. That was the Human Mother Box. Until now, the appearance of the other two—one for the Atlanteans and one for the Amazonians—had remained shrouded in mystery.
Mother Boxes Props Revealed At SDCC
Thanks to Twitter account @DCFilms_, we now have a closer look at all three Mother Boxes that are used in the upcoming Justice League. You can check them out down below:
All three are distinctly different in color and have a different design, but they have some key elements in common. All hold unspeakable power and were created by the New Gods of New Genesis and Apokolips. It is the primary reason why #Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons intend to invade Earth to take back what was theirs.
The Mother Boxes Are Scattered Around Earth
The opening sequence in Justice League will be a flashback showing us the major battle with the Amazonians, Atlanteans, and humans all duking it out against what is presumably be #Darkseid and his forces. After the battle subsides, somehow the Mother Boxes are found, then hidden from view and never seen again… until now.
While we don’t know the whereabouts of the other two Mother Boxes that have just been revealed at #SDCC2017, one of them was, of course, fused with Cyborg. Cyborg may have the last laugh, however, if he finds a way to harness the power to control the Mother Box that’s been fused inside of him.
All of these Mother Boxes are incredibly detailed. While we don’t have much to go on thus far, hopefully the next #JusticeLeague trailer will shed some more light on them and their importance to the New Gods.
But what do you all think? What other purposes do you believe the Mother Boxes possess? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
