A new batch of concept art for Justice League shows the evolution of the film's heroes, villains, and vehicles. Justice League is the second DC live-action comic book adaptation to hit theaters this year, following the critical and commercial success of Wonder Woman this past summer. The first Justice League social media reactions are now online, with the official review embargo schedule to lift a few days before Zack Snyder's latest DC Comics tentpole hits the scene.
Justice League itself will serve an important role in setting up the future of the DC cinematic universe. Warner Bros. and DC is currently developing several DC movies that will encompass a wide spectrum, in terms of tone and style. Among those are solo movies for two of the youngest members of the Justice League, aka. the Flash/Flashpoint and Cyborg films. The book Justice League: The Collector's Edition will highlight these characters, among other superheroes that have a future in the DC film franchise.
CBM has now posted several pieces of concept art from Justice League: The Official Collector's Edition online. Steppenwolf, Mera, Cyborg, and others heroes and villains are given the spotlight here (along with various non-human members of the underwater city of Atlantis), showing how they changed over the course of Justice League's development. Check them out at the link below:
Cyborg looks to have gone through the most permutations from the art in the gallery, showing just how tricky it was to create a character mostly composed of CGI. The artwork also reveals how Batman's various Bat-vehicles evolved over the course of time, from the Flying Fox to the Knightcrawler.
Alongside the core characters and vehicles, the book features lots of artwork of Atlantis and the aquatic beings that populate the mythical city. Aquaman will open up a whole new corner of the DC film universe and touch on a hidden world unlike anything that's ever been featured in superhero cinema before. In the meantime, Justice League seems prepared to give everyone a crash course in the alien-esque world of Atlantis.
When the book releases, expect even more concept art to emerge online. While most of the character's looks were locked in from previous appearances, there's a lot of new material that Justice League will cover. It's possible the artwork will even tease some characters from the film, thus hinting at the future of the DC cinematic universe. For now, the images should help keep the excitement alive for this week's premiere of Justice League.
