The Justice League is ready to assemble.
Warner Bros. dropped a new teaser trailer on Thursday (we're staying tuned for the full trailer on Saturday). Even though we don't see a ton of the team in action, it does put a big spotlight on Jason Momoa’s Aquaman—and he looks ridiculously badass.
Momoa’s Aquaman (a.k.a. Arthur Curry) made his DC film debut in a cameo spot in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and then played some comic relief in the first full-length Justice League trailer, but this is by far the best look at him yet.
It wouldn’t be a shock if Aquaman—decked out in his royal armor, stopping massive waves in their tracks—steals the show in Justice League:
Momoa has worked out like a beast for both Justice League and Aquaman, getting shredded to play the King of the Seven Seas:
A new poster was released ahead of the trailer, too:

There’s still no look at former Men’s Fitness cover star Henry Cavill’s Superman, who *spoiler alert* was presumed dead at the end of Batman v. Superman. It’s already known that Cavill will reprise his role in Justice League, but the studio is doing a very good job so far of keeping mum on Superman’s involvement (and his likely resurrection).
From the look of the teaser, which has the Aquaman logo at the beginning, it’s possible that DC may release other videos spotlighting the other characters, like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman (Ben Affleck), Cyborg (Ray Fisher, got ridiculously jacked to play the robotic hero), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) ahead of the full trailer Saturday.
If not, it’s still an awesome look at what could be a surprisingly awesome movie after the so-so critical reception of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. Either way, Aquaman is ready for battle.
Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Fisher, Cavill, Momoa, Affleck, Gadot, and Ezra Miller, will be released on November 17, 2017.
