HBO Max Feb. 13 unveiled the official trailer for Warner Bros.’ pending (March 18) release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League DC superhero movie. The movie features a team of well-known DC superheroes: Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller), inspired by Superman (Henry Cavill), to fight a new global threat. The movie, which was originally finished by director Joss Whedon after Snyder dropped out due to his daughter’s suicide, generated $657 million at the global box office.
Cult fans of the franchise contended Whedon’s take on the movie was different than the tone established by Snyder in precursor films Man of Steel (2013) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). With fans clamoring to see Snyder’s intended version of the film, WarnerMedia jumped at the marketing opportunity.
WarnerMedia also bowed a dedicated microsite with the latest news, trailers and activities around the movie.
