Justice League trailer at Comic-Con is worth the patience waiting for, it filled with cool footage, exciting hints and Easter Eggs. Those who are eager to see the villain Steppenwolf in battle left with happy, as did the fans hoping that both The Flash and Cyborg would get some more of the spotlight. To top things off, the trailer ended with what seems to be the return of Superman from death.
We’re breaking everything down to help you keeping up with Justice League. From callbacks of Batman V Superman to new revelations misunderstood in previous trailers, we hope our analysis gives you more reason to keep the new trailer on repeat in the hours and days to come.
1. Steppenwolf uses a Boom Tube to travel
We always know Mother Boxes going to play a big part in the Justice League, mainly because the set up in Batman v Superman. Its appear is confirmed when big bad Steppenwolf uses an extra dimesional point-to-point portal, a.k.a Boom Tube – which is made by the Mother Box, to travel to Earth in his search of Mother Boxes.
2. Steppenwolf travels to Atlantis
This is a cool moment with Steppenwolf’s axe apparently as water-proof as a Casio watch. We’re guessing he took a Boom Tube to get to Atlantis because one of the Mother Box is at Atlantic (either that or he did a LOT of swimming).
So, if we see the villain in two of the places he has to go to grab Mother Boxes in the trailer, what does it mean for the third one – the living Mother Box Cyborg?
3. The League has a Mother Box
They got it, we’d bet our last Bat-dollar that the League are talking about using it to travel to Apokolips, Steppenwolf’s home world. That’ll be the reason why Aquaman is discussing death because it’s usually the consequence of rocking up in Darkseid’s manor.
4. Wonder Woman can dodge bullets
Warner Bros is super proud of Wonder Woman. In the trailer, the film reiterates that, like Superman, Wonder Woman is faster than a speeding bullet. Though, in this instance, the power is a bit pointless, as that bullet wasn’t going to hit her anyway.
5. Superman is definitely coming back
Superman’s returning. We say so because of the scenes showing the League in front of Superman’s tomb and looking pretty awe-struck.
But where’s Batman? Is he in such a pickle that the remaining members of the League have to resurrect Superman?
6. Superman has leg tattoos?
If you pause the shot of Bruce looking at the hologram of Superman’s fluttering cape at the right moment, you can see something like tribal tattoos on Superman’s leg.
Lex did say ‘The red capes are coming’ in BvS, which is plural we suppose. Is this someone else but Superman Bruce is looking at.
7. Alfred’s talking to someone in a red cape
Alfred’s being pretty sincere in this scene, which makes a change from his other appearances, which seem to suggest he’ll be the comic relief.
8. LEGO Batman might hold the key to the future of the Justice League
In The LEGO Batman Movie, all the previous incarnations of the Batman movies exist, and LEGO Batman is aware of them. This Justice League gag appears to be a reference to Batman Returns.
Is this a potential Multiverse hint, ahead of the Flashpoint film?
Could we see Ben Affleck’s Batman meeting Will Arnett’s at some point? Man, we hope so.
9. Wonder Woman‘s living in London
10. Cyborg knows who Batman is
There is a scene when Cyborg takes control over Batman’s new vehicle, he utters “I’ll take it from here, Alfred” over the intercom, sounding basically exactly like Batman.
Only one problem, Alfred doesn’t know who the hell Cyborg (a.k.a Victor Stone) is.
There are many scenario to explain but still, if Stone knows Alfred, he knows his connection to Bruce.
We couldn’t end this feature without mentioning this shot, which is INCREDIBLE. Let’s enjoy the trailer from here https://youtu.be/2zwWXNhIMY0:
