Justice League Brand New Thunder Trailer
Warner Bros. UK
is pleased to reveal the brand new Thunder
trailer for the highly anticipated JUSTICE LEAGUE
After being teased in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - The Ultimate Edition
is only three weeks away from making his full cinematic debut in Justice League
. Played by Game of Thrones
actor Ciaran Hinds
, this DC films version of Steppenwolf has already appeared in a few Justice League
previews providing sinister narration and and attacking our principal heroes, but fans have yet to officially get a clear look at the mighty general from Apokolips. The latest Justice League
trailer has rectified this somewhat, as we finally get to see Steppenwolf up close and holding still. Regarding Steppenwolf, he can be seen early on threatening someone. When the uniformed man tells the alien warrior that they have families, Steppenwolf questions why so many people have been telling him this. The line exemplifies how callous he is, which is to be expected of someone who serves Darkseid. And while it would have been nice to fully see his face
, as you can tell from the screenshot below, this version of Steppenwolf looks significantly more alien than his comic book counterpart.
Along with this up-close time with Steppenwolf, this Justice League
trailer also sprinkles in some shots of the main antagonist swinging his mighty axe and his forces causing mass destruction, both in the present day and the flashback battle
(the latter of which, according to Wonder Woman, took place before she was born). Lex Luthor
was seen communicating with Steppenwolf in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - The Ultimate Edition
about the Mother Boxes before he was captured by the authorities, and by the time Justice League
unfolds, the Apokoliptan general will arrive with his Parademon army to retrieve these alien supercomputers and lay waste to our world. However, while he is fulfilling Darksied's wishes during the movie, Steppenwolf will also be trying to escape enslavement
from his nephew.
There are plenty of other non-Steppenwolf Justice League
moments to soak in from this new trailer too, including Wonder Woman tossing an explosive suitcase into the air and Batman quipping about Aquaman
bringing a pitchfork into battle. Thanks to the Knightmare
he experienced during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
, Batman had a feeling he would need to gather a team of metahuman together to fight an unknown threat. Now that Steppenwolf is here, only Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg
stand a chance of thwarting this invasion and serving as a beacon of hope in Superman's (temporary) absence.
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.
