Zack Snyder has shared a storyboard of Lois' dream of Clark from the Justice League trailer online. The latest Justice League trailer gave fans their first glimpse of Clark Kent with a brief scene between him and Lois on his parent's farm in what appears to be a dream sequence. Superman's presence is bigger than just that, though: we also hear about how "violence, acts of war, and terrorism are on the rise" in the wake of Superman's death. "The world needs Superman" Bruce Wayne says to Diana, implying that the alien's death is the reason the heroes unite in the first place.
Of course, Superman will be back proper in the film. This was confirmed way back with the first official image, and has seen teased throughout the marketing. For now, though, the only full look at Cavill in action is this seemingly pivotal sequence in Kansas.
To highlight the scene, Zack Snyder released a storyboard image via Vero of the Lois and Clark reunion from the trailer. The rough sketch is almost exactly what appears in the trailer, down to nailing the detail of the shadows. One minor difference is the line in the storyboard reading, "that's a yes," versus the actual trailer line (typed over the bottom of the photo), "I'll take that as a yes."
Snyder handed the reigns to Joss Whedon after a family tragedy, but those involved with the production of the film are insistent that Snyder's original vision remains. And, despite announcing his exit in the first half of this year, Snyder has continued to release tidbits of information, including set photos quite recently. Indeed, this isn't the first time he's released a storyboard through Vero; just the other week he gave a fresh look at the film's prologue. As the film nears release, he's sure to start teasing more and more.
While this draws attention to Cavill's role in the film, the trailer keeps the nature of his return a mystery. It now appears like Warners are keeping Supes that way until the movie arrives in November, and with it how exactly he can come back from his chest wound. Not that the trailer doesn't offer enough to get fans excited besides.
