Is it a bird, is it a plane, nope, it is a sizzle reel from Las Vegas. For those who weren't just satisfied with the recent first trailer for #JusticeLeague, fans at #CinemaCon were treated to yet more footage of the JLA in and out of action.
Those who attended the #WarnerBros panel got a gift from the gods as they could gaze in awe at #BenAffleck, #JasonMomoa, #EzraMiller, and #RayFisher. We also got the chiseled jaw of #HenryCavill, further confirming the world's worst secret that #Superman is in Justice League. While the whole team comes together (right now), the additional footage looks like director #ZackSnyder hopes to shed at least some of his laughless image.
Bros Before Hos
It seems that the boys from the hood really were there to look good, while Snyder was the the only one to actually said anything outside of the new sizzle reel of footage. The director quipped:
"I would throw to the cast, but they are too awesome."
Affleck did his best Bruce Wayne impression in a dapper suit, mouthing "Thank You" to fans as the cast left the stage for a private jet to Los Angeles.
As for the new footage, it hyped up the bromance element of the film and teased that it would be a while into the film's runtime before we see the entire gang side by side. It is effectively the same trailer but with a few extra scenes, so what did you miss?
Firstly we see a stoic Alfred (Jeremy Irons) warning his adopted billionaire that he is working too hard to bring together his team of heroes. We know that all work and no playboy seems like a normal day in the life for Bruce Wayne, so pipe down, Alfred.
There is soon a break in at a Wayne warehouse, where Bruce is seen tinkering with some sort of giant vehicle. Who is it though that comes breaking in to interrupt Affleck's tool time? Well, none other than Diana Prince. Note as well that the vehicle reportedly looks a bit like the transporter we saw from #BatmanvSuperman's "Knightmare" sequence, which would fit in with the idea of Parademons, Darkseid, and Steppenwolf.
While #GalGadot was absent from the panel, we did get to see #WonderWoman in action in the footage, as she went shield to batarang in banter stakes with Batman. We see Wonder Woman joke that Bruce's $1 million security system was well worth the money, especially considering that it took her nearly one whole minute to break in.

Gone In A Flash
The new footage was relatively short, but there was also time for a "flash" of Ezra Miller's Barry Allen. We see a slow-motion shot of Wonder Woman falling down a shaft while trying to catch her sword; Allen comes to the rescue, RUNNING UP THE WALL, then flipping the sword back to its rightful owner.
There is also another scene where Barry and Bruce are lurking in the shadows (as Bruce loves to do) and out of costume, before we see the Bat-Signal light up the sky. Allen turns to Bruce and cheerfully pipes up:
"Oh awesome. It's the Batsignal! That's your signal [before apologizing for speaking too loudly] "That means we have to go now. That's so cool."
Miller will clearly represent the comedy element of the film, probably in a geeky sidekick way like Michael Cera in The LEGO Batman Movie. It is unknown at what point in the film this will air, but it could lead into the sky-high meeting we see between Batman and our latest Commissioner Gordon, #JKSimmons.
The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
And that's your lot. The cast were paraded out after the footage, while Snyder further expressed how the film is his baby and that all his other work has almost lead up to this point:
"Justice League is a culmination of a journey that for me has been seven years. I'm a huge fan of these characters and this is a dream come true to bring them all together in this single film.”
The panel also offered looks at The LEGO Ninjango Movie, as well as other #DCEU stalwarts Wonder Woman and #Aquaman, but Justice League will undoubtedly be the talking point of the day, if not the entire convention. While we will have to wait until November 17 to see if Justice League is worth kickstarting the DCEU again, it currently looks like Snyder's #superhero film is suiting up to be one hell of a ride in the Batmobile.
