Well, well, well. Looks like a lot of people learned a boatload from critical and commercial critique of BATMAN V SUPERMAN – specifically director Zack Snyder and company. Judging by the looks of the footage they gave to attendees at San Diego Comic-Con, JUSTICE LEAGUE will be what we wanted all along from DC – a blend of humor and badassery.

Watch as Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) “Nick Fury”s the sh*t out of bringing his squad goals to life. In this tease set to The White Stripes “Icky Thump,” he, along with Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), assemble Arthur Curry/ Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Barry Allen/ The Flash (Ezra Miller), Victor Strong/ Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

I’ll say this much: Synder definitely knows how to cut together a footage tease to hit all the marks. While I’m still a bit skeptical, it appears he and his team have taken valid criticisms to heart and gifted us with something to, once again, get excited about.

JUSTICE LEAGUE opens on November 17, 2017.
