Fans have recreated the latest trailer for the DC Extended Universe's Justice League LEGO. The biggest heroes from the DC roster, Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), are all coming together for the very first time in less than three months to fight off Steppenwolf and his legion of Parademons to prevent them taking over the Earth.
The film was the center of WB's DC panel at last month's SDCC; after a brief tease for Hall H attendants of Aquaman, the principal cast (minus Cavill) shared some juicy tidbits from the film and even debuted a lengthy new look for the epic blockbuster. Naturally it's got people excited for the film and also inspired some to do work of their own.
LEGO Motion Studios recreated the entire four-minute tease using just the famed plastic bricks in stop-motion. You can check out their very impressive work about.
Seeing everyone's favorite superheroes and their supporting characters like Alfred (Jeremy Irons) and Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons) come to life as minifigures is cool, although what's most impressive is how LMS waere able to reimagine the visual effects from the original trailer.
This isn't the only LEGO-focused fan work inspired by Justice League; the SDCC exclusive poster for the ensemble project was also given the LEGO treatment. Created by artist illustrator and designer Tom Whalen, the artwork features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg with a slew of the villainous Parademons in the background.
As Justice League nears its release in theaters this November, Warner Bros is slowly picking up the pace in terms of promoting the movie. Various promotional stills and merchandise have been released providing fans a closer look at the superheroes.
That said, the cast and crew of the upcoming film are still hard at work on the much-publicized reshoots. In the past few weeks, various reports regarding the rumored extensive rework being overseen by Batgirl writer and director Joss Whedon after original helmer Zack Snyder stepped down from directorial duties. The extent of these will be clear in November.
