A new set of Justice League photos puts the spotlight on Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and The Flash. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) teams up in Zack Snyder's latest with newcomers Victor Stone (Ray Fisher) and Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) as they join forces with Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) for the first time as a group in DC's cinematic universe. The final marketing push for the new film is underway, as Warner Bros. has begun rolling out "character weeks" that kicked off with Aquaman and continued with Flash Week.
This time, Wonder Woman and Cyborg are being promoted together as Justice League gears up for its Nov. 17 release. Gadot and Fisher both helped announce the start of Wonder Woman & Cyborg Week on Monday, and some new images of those same characters have also debuted.
Twitter user "Sean" (@ReelFada) revealed the fresh set of photos on Monday, crediting WB India with the release. The first still features Diana Prince in a black leather jacket, looking quite interested in what she's seeing. There are two new looks at Cyborg, one of which shows him manning the Batmobile. But the other shows him staring menacingly out a broken window, indicating some kind of turning point for the tortured hero. A fourth photo shows Barry Allen in his hideout, but he looks like he has company. Check out the photos below:

Much has already been learned about Cyborg, who certainly has more to gain than Wonder Woman in terms of attention and promotion ahead of Justice League. We know that the character will be more "real and grounded" than his animated counterpart. He will have some of his traditional powers but also some upgrades from most of the comics, including the abilities to adapt to situations and discover new powers.
Cyborg won't just evolve in terms of his equipment or appearance; he is expected to have some of the film's most complex character development. Unlike the other heroes, he can't simply take off his suit and blend into society. These two new images show off both ends of the character's spectrum. He will definitely be a formidable fighter, but one that will be dealing with plenty of demons. The hope is that Fisher's performance makes Cyborg a welcome addition to an already strong cast alongside Gadot and Affleck.
It may be cause for concern that a portion of Justice League's reshoots were reportedly focused on readjusting Cyborg's tone. With Joss Whedon at the helm, it was ostensibly a conscious effort to lighten him up a bit. A sprinkling of comic relief could end up helping the character in the end, but it remains to be seen how Snyder and Whedon's final cut turns out.
