Mild speculative spoilers ahead for Justice League. You know the drill.

It's been a hot second since we heard anything new about Justice League, but a new behind-the-scenes video gives us a glimpse of something exciting and a little spoilery from the set of Zack Snyder's hypefest.

Most of the movie was shot in London, where filming wrapped at the end of last week, and by way of thanks Snyder posted some BTS footage on Twitter. Check it out, before we break down one particularly interesting split-second shot of the group in action...

The moment that captured my attention arrives 30 seconds in, when we see the entire league (minus Superman) descending in an elevator. From the look of the rocky nature of the walls the clan are probably in the high-tech Batcave, but more notably, this is the first time we've seen footage of the five heroes in the same place.

The presence of Aquaman is interesting because we know from previous reports that when Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash meet up with Commissioner Jim Gordon on the rooftop of the Gotham PD HQ to discuss eight kidnappings of high-profile scientists (joined by Cyborg soon after), Batman has failed to recruit Aquaman to the team.

Immediately after the meeting, the team heads underground into a secret tunnel which links Metropolis with Gotham, where they do battle with a horde of Parademons — presumably, that's this scene in the Comic-Con teaser trailer...

Like everything else in Snyder's behind-the-scenes video, the lift sequence appears to take place early in the movie (DC are keeping most of the plot under lock and key right now), which suggests Aquaman will turn up and fight alongside the league just when they're not expecting it — presumably in that underground tunnel.

Logically, all five would then make for the Batcave in the aftermath to discuss strategy, and thank Arthur Curry for saving their asses.

It's just a small snippet of story, but we already know from Geoff Johns that the process of Batman forming the league was "accelerated" in later drafts of the script, so it makes sense that Aquaman doesn't play coy for too long. Check out the full teaser trailer below — can you spot any other hints which might help piece the plot together?
