The cover for the upcoming Justice League art book has all the team's members, including Superman, standing together in unison. In 2013, Warner Bros. released Man of Steel. The film was was later billed as the first entry into the DCEU, DC's answer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In 2016, Warner Bros. released two more DCEU films; namely, Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. Unfortunately, both films received less-than-positive reviews despite star-studded casts. Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, then, became the first DCEU movie to conquer both the box office and the hearts of critics. All eyes are on Justice League, right now. Will Justice Lague build on the success of Wonder Woman or will it disappoint many, much like BVS and Suicide Squad?
The production of Justice League hasn't exactly been smooth sailing. After Zack Snyder stepped away from the project to deal with a family tragedy, Joss Whedon was brought on to handle reshoots. The film's first trailers show Batman recruiting the titular team of superheroes, and also demonstrates them working together to stop Steppenwolf and his Parademons. Now, fans can see how the team building was originally drawn up (literally) with a brand new Justice League art book that is available to pre-order now.
As per the Titan Books website, the book, titled, Justice League The Art of the Film is written by Abbie Bernstein and will focus on concept art and behind-the-scenes happenings. The synopsis on the website is as follows:
"Inspired by Superman's selfless act, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans – Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash – to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions. Packed with stunning concept art, sketches, costume detail, stills, and behind-the-scenes shots from the set, this book is an invaluable insight into the world of Justice League."
Unfortunately for fans who are hoping to analyze these sketches, concept art and behind-the-scenes shots and try to piece the story together, the book will only be released on 15 December, a month after the movie hits cinemas. In any case, this would still most likely be a fun book that DC fans might want to purchase and add to their collection.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons and Amy Adams, among others.
