Release Date: November 17, 2017
The story: After four movies’ worth of build-up, the DC Universe finally gets its own spin on The Avengers. The first trailer for Justice League emphasizes the team-building aspects of the film, with Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman looking to recruit Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg to defend the world from the threats Lex Luthor was ranting about at the end of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. We don’t know exactly what form those foes will take yet, but according to the latest rumor, we know that Jack Kirby villain Steppenwolf, who briefly took Lex Luthor on a magic carpet ride in a deleted scene from Batman V Superman, is likely to be the villain, and that he’s almost certainly working for his nephew Darkseid, whose minions and big flashy omega symbol were glimpsed in Batman’s weird-ass apocalypse dream in that same film.
Noteworthy events: There’s a 50-50 shot we’ll see Darkseid in the flesh. But given that Henry Cavill was spotted on-set, you can bet Superman will be back in some form or another for sure.
