An unprecedented team-up for live-action DC movies, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash will join forces on the big screen next fall in effort to save the world from its greatest threats yet. And they might have to do it without the help of the Man of Steel who sacrificed himself to stop Doomsday during the climactic battle of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
That is, if you don't believe Superman will rise again. And he will. Obviously. While we visited the set of Justice League last week at Warner Bros. Leavesden studios in southeast England, Superman was noticeably absent from the War Room where concept art was displayed on every wall and from the costume department where all the other heroes had their outfits showcased. But of course, there is no Justice League without Superman and that's why it's unsurprising to see Henry Cavill's name in the official Justice League movie synopsis.
After all, Cavill showed up during the Warner Bros. presentation at the Las Vegas CinemaCon event in April during a pre-recorded message from the set during pre-production where he was training for the part. So, without further ado, here are the official logo treatments for Justice League and the official synopsis:
While on set the director and producer chairs had an icon version of this logo, with the letters "JL" featuring the star in the middle and a shield crest around it, same font as the logos above (with white text on black backing).
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
The supporting cast not listed here also includes J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Amber Heard as Mera, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, and various cast members of Wonder Woman.
