Steppenwolf arrives to bring destruction and chaos in new Justice League trailer
Lanterns, Themyscira, Aquaman surfing on a parademon, heavy footsteps, etc.
These are just a few of the things to freak out, laugh, and get excited about, in the newly released
“Justice League” trailer.
The trailer shows us a lot more this time, giving us more ideas of the context, and the time period it is
on. It also shows us a little bit more of the team in action, especially regarding Cyborg and the Flash.
The movie seems to take place somewhat directly after “Wonder Woman”, though we’re not exactly
sure if stopping that bank robbery was why Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) rushed off in the final scenes
of the movie.
We see Themyscira in the present, and we get the confirmation of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) as the

possession of. Steppenwolf’s arrival can be said to be the first step in our journey to eventually seeing
Darkseid in live-action, and the thought itself is incredibly exciting. Although Steppenwolf’s own

seeing a Green Lantern as soon as this movie. And second, is the idea that part of the context of this
invasion might be the lack of cosmic powers currently on Earth, especially with the recent fall of
We also get to see the team in action more. We see Wonder Woman repel Steppenwolf’s attack,
Aquaman (Jason Momoa) surfing a parademon, The Flash (Ezra Miller) disappearing in a bolt
lightning, Cyborg (Ray Fisher) hacking into and using one of Batman’s (Ben Affleck) machines, and
All in all, it’s just one action-packed trailer for what we can expect to be an action-packed movie.
Justice League is set to be released on November 17, 2017. Watch the trailer here:
