Some brand new promo art for Justice League has been released, and it includes Henry Cavill's Superman once again. After getting off to a bit of a rocky start in 2016 as well - following the divisive reactions to both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad - it looks like the DCEU may finally be experiencing the turnaround that many fans had been hoping for. After early reactions had hinted at an overwhelmingly positive reception, the first reviews for Wonder Woman are finally here and, indeed, Gal Gadot's first solo film as Diana Prince is turning out to be the most well-reviewed film in the DCEU released, up until this point.
Wonder Woman isn't the only DC film hitting theaters in 2017 either - and after already bringing the Holy Trinity together onscreen for the first time in Batman v Superman last year, the studio is currently working on releasing its most ambitious comic book film to date in Justice League. Despite his death at the end of Batman v Superman too, Warner Bros. hasn't been necessarily secretive about the fact that Henry Cavill's Clark Kent/Superman will be coming back to life at some point in Justice League, even if his presence was completely lacking from the most recent set of Justice League posters and teasers.
However, some new looks at the film's concession materials and promo art, which fans can expect to see in the movie theaters later this year, do bring back Cavill's Superman in the form of an epic DC team-up. While the photos don't necessarily reveal anything new about the film itself, they do tease what looks like an epic final battle between this fully-formed Justice League and the forces they're fighting against in the movie.

So while Superman's return in Justice League is a well-known fact at this point amongst fans, the form in which he returns and when, exactly, Kal-El returns in Justice League, will have to remain a mystery for the time being. With Justice League pitting Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) up against the villainous Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) and his numerous forces, though, it feels safe to say that the League will need him back sooner rather than later.
There's been a lot of talk about the creative direction as of late as well, after Zack Snyder stepped down from Justice League in the wake of a horrible family tragedy, with Joss Whedon set to oversee completion of the film. While some fans are likely still skeptical of Justice League, DC and Warner Bros. have gone out of their way to emphasize a change in tone with the new film, with more humor and fun than was present in Batman v Superman. Whether or not the film manages to pull that new aesthetic and vibe off will have to wait to be seen, but if 2017 is making one thing very clear so far, it's that the DCEU is going down a much different route than some fans might have expected at the end of last year.
