Even after Batman v Superman, and all the production drama, I just want this film to knock it out of the park. Based on what we’ve seen thus far, it looks like it might just do that. At Comic Con this morning, stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher took to Hall H and premiered exclusive new footage of the latest DCEU flick, providing a glimpse into what the tone and feel of Justice League may be… Bullet point highlights below.

  • Affleck addresses rumors of his Batman future: “I’m the luckiest guy in the world.” He says he’s super excited to be part of this series. “I would be an Ape on the ground for Matt Reeves. Let alone Batman.” He doesn’t ever say he’s not leaving though…
  • Gadot – “Wonder Woman stands for everything that is good. There’s nothing not to love about her.”
  • They debut a new trailer. Watch it here, if you haven’t already.
  • On when the cast found out they’ll be part of the Justice League: Gadot – “I was at the airport when I found out I was playing Wonder Woman. I started screaming when I found out.” Miller – “I was eating fish when Snyder gave me a call… I said hold on, let me finish my fish… “ Fisher was shocked when he got the news, couldn’t stop from cursing at the top of his lungs in public. Ben Affleck was immediately in for Batman when Snyder told him, “You’ll get to fight Superman.”
  • Miller on fitting in as the new guy of the team – “You just have to love yourself. And then hopefully people get used to you… But why am I the new guy?”
  • Fisher on the reshoots – “We just finished them up. Joss [Whedon] is a great guy. Snyder picked a great person to finish the film.”
  • A cute child asks, “When is Superman going to be in Justice League?” Momoa pulls no punches – “I don’t know if your parents showed you the last film but Superman is DEAD.” Gadot eases the poor child’s mind, promising there will be a lot of Superman in Justice League

Justice League opens in theaters everywhere November 17th.
