DC has unveiled several of the variant covers for the Justice League movie comic book that will arrive in stores this November. In just two months from now, several of DC Comics' most popular superheroes will finally join forces on the big screen. The road has been a hard one, with failed adaptations and setbacks along the way. With any luck, however, the live-action Justice League will usher in a new era for the DC Extended Universe, as a franchise.
For now, fans are eagerly awaiting more information on the upcoming film. That may arrive soon, as a new rumor suggests that next month's Blade Runner 2049 will bring a new Justice League trailer with it. Though a couple of Justice League trailers have already been released, it would make sense for Warner Bros. to further promote the DCEU movie in front of another one of the studio's major tentpoles. Until then, DC is circling back to the comics that birthed the Justice League to begin with, to promote their movie.
DC, Nerdist, and THR have all unveiled new Justice League variant covers that will appear in stores this November. The ones released so far have seen some of the comics' biggest artists tackling the team for variations on titles featuring the heroes. You can check out the ones that have been released online so far in the galley below. [UPDATE: We've now added two more variant covers, courtesy of EW.]

The covers so far feature variants for Action Comics #991 by Yanick Paquette, Aquaman #30 by Liam Sharp, Superman #35 by Renato Guedes, The Flash #34 by Mike McKone, and Wonder Woman #34 by Terry Dodson. In all likelihood, more covers will come soon for titles featuring Batman and the whole Justice League. Whether they will extend beyond that, however, is unknown.
As fans await more variant covers and the new Justice League trailer, other forms of marketing have continued to provide new looks at the movie. We recently saw some Flash concept art, highlighting the hero's updated suit in the film. A new international promo for the movie also offered some insight into the characters from the actors who are bringing them to life.
Meanwhile, with Justice League test screenings now underway, opinions about the film itself are starting to trickle in. DC head Geoff Johns is already indicating that the Flash will be a fan-favorite; given his youthful energy and young age, it makes sense that the Fastest Man Alive would function like the Spider-Man of the Justice League. We've heard for some time that Justice League will be more fun and hopeful than Batman V Superman, and the inclusion of the Flash likely has a lot to do with that.
