Today marks the digital release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, including the much talked about “Ultimate Cut”. I’ll be watching that tonight with some friends and will circle back tomorrow with some thoughts. In the meantime, WB has revealed one key piece that’s included on the release: new concept art that features the six founding members of the big screen version of the Justice League.
Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman don’t look too terribly different from their appearances in BvS, but this gives us our best look yet at Cyborg and The Flash (played by Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller respectively, though weirdly that Flash looks nothing like Miller).
I’m very glad to see they’re making Cyborg look a bit less bulky, and I’m a big fan of the Aquaman design – which incidentally, is the film I’m most interested in.
Again, here’s the synopsis for Justice League, which hits next year and is currently filming:
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.
