Join the League!

With the fifth film in the DC Extended Universe soon to explode into cinemas November 17th, we introduce the heroic members of the Justice League and the uber-baddie determined to bring them down!


A bit of background for you first....

  • Conceived by comic book writer Gardner Fox and artist Mike Sekowsky, the original incarnation of DC’s legendary League of Heroes – the Justice League of America – teamed up for the first time in 1960 on the pages of The Brave and the Bold #28.
  • Counted among the Justice League’s original founding members are Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash.
  • Cyborg is technically not an original founding member but was retconned as a founding member in 2011, when DC relaunched its entire comics catalog in The New 52.
  • After fighting side-by-side across decades of comics, these iconic DC all-stars are going all in to save the world in their first-ever big-screen team-up, Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic action adventure Justice League, hitting cinemas November 17, 2017.

BATMAN

Dark Knight. Caped Crusader. Whatever you know him as, wherever you know him from—the blockbuster movies, TV shows, video games, cartoons, or millions of comics—Batman is proof you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero… and the poster boy for what a bad childhood can do to you.

Inspired by Superman’s sacrifice in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015), the billionaire detective is putting together a team of Super Heroes to combat a force threatening the entire planet. For the first time, Batman understands that he, alone, cannot save the world.  

  • Justice League marks the 3rd film in which acclaimed actor and Oscar-winning filmmaker Ben Affleck (Argo) has taken on the iconic Dark Knight, having first embodied Batman / Bruce Wayne in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and again that same year in a brief but high-impact cameo in Suicide Squad.

Powers

  • exceptional martial artist
  • combat strategy
  • inexhaustible wealth
  • brilliant deductive skill
  • advanced technology
  • Special weapons: The Batmobile, Flying Fox (a hybrid aircraft with the capability of a bomber and the maneuverability of a jet fighter)  and Knightcrawler.

Occupation

CEO of Wayne Enterprises

Alias/AKA

Dark Knight, Caped Crusader, Matches Malone.

Origins

Created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, Batman first appeared in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics #27, before stepping off the page to become a cultural touchstone across the globe.

 

WONDER WOMAN

OK, let’s just come out and say it: Wonder Woman is the most famous heroine of all time. Following her dazzling solo outing earlier this year, Wonder Woman is another League member whose reputation precedes her. Raised on the paradise island of Themyscira – a women-only zone – Diana is an Amazonian princess, and demigod, blessed with super-speed and strength and innate goodness.

The world’s first and foremost female Super Hero, Wonder Woman embodies the unrivaled force and grace of a born warrior with the genuine compassion of a true humanitarian.  The first to join Bruce Wayne’s team, Diana’s natural confidence and unmistakable intelligence make her an indispensable ally.

  • Gal Gadot embodies Wonder Woman / Diana Prince for the 3rd time in Justice League, following the character’s enigmatic debut in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and this year’s Wonder Woman, the iconic Amazon’s first-ever solo feature and the summer’s biggest hit.

Powers

  • Superhuman strength, agility and speed
  • Near invulnerability
  • Mastery in all forms of combat
  • Lasso of Hestia, which compels anyone in its grip to speak the truth

Alignment

Hero and Godness

Alias/AKA

Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons 

Origins

Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston. Since her October 1941 debut on the pages of All-Star Comics Volume 1, #8, Wonder Woman has been embraced by generations as a global symbol of peace, justice and empowerment.

THE FLASH

This scarlet speedster is about to become your new favourite superhero. Born plain old, powerless Barry Allen, The Flash inherits his immense speed by accident and is still getting to grips with his gift when we meet him. We know what you’re thinking. So basically he’s really, really fast? Well yes, but there’s more to it than that. The Flash is able to experience time more slowly and, as a result, can do things like plucking batarangs out of the air mid-flight...

Barry Allen is an excessively energetic student attending Central City College, where he studies criminal justice with the hope of one day freeing his incarcerated father.  More than eager to team up with crime fighting icon Batman, Barry’s remarkably quick wit is surpassed only by his ability to move at hyper-speed.

  • Ezra Miller (the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise) embodies The Flash / Barry Allen for the 3rd time in Justice League, following brief cameos in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

Powers

  • super speed
  • intangibility
  • superhuman agility
  • accelerated healing

Base of Operations

Central City

Alias/AKA

Scarlet Speedster, The Fastest Man Alive

Origins

Barry Allen first appeared as The Flash in Showcase #4 (October 1956), created by Robert Kanigher and drawn by Carmine Infantino.

Barry is among a handful of DC characters who have appeared under The Flash mantle, dating back to the 1940 debut of the “Scarlet Speedster” in Flash Comics #1, created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert.

 

AQUAMAN

Aquaman’s been an icon for over seventy years. The King of the Seven Seas. Reluctant ruler of Atlantis. A man who holds his own against heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman. He’s able to breathe underwater, communicate with sea-life and is also incredibly strong. But he’s troubled too, coming from two different worlds, neither of which he really fits into.

Half-human, half-Atlantean, Arthur Curry is an outsider who does not feel at home on the Earth’s surface or under the sea.  That is, until the world is threatened and he joins Batman’s newly assembled team of heroes.

  • Justice League marks Jason Momoa’s (Game of Thrones) 2nd big-screen appearance as Aquaman / Arthur Curry, but the 1st time moviegoers will truly see the undersea warrior in action, following a brief glimpse of oceanic surveillance footage in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and before plunging into the character’s epic origin story in next year’s Aquaman.

Powers

  • Enhanced strength
  • Exceptional swimming speeds
  • Ability to breathe underwater
  • An intuitive understanding of the ocean and its mysteries

Group Affiliation

Justice League, The Others

Alias/AKA

King of Atlantis

Origins

Aquaman was created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, and first splashed into action on the pages of More Fun Comics #73 (November 1941).

Cast out from Atlantis as a baby, Arthur Curry grew up on land, thinking himself a normal human. But when he matured, Atlantis returned, claiming him as their rightful king

 

CYBORG

Nowadays, everyone’s juggling an offline and online persona. But only one hero is a literal marriage of technology and man. Half human, half machine, Victor Stone is Cyborg, a digital and physical tank—and a true superhero for the modern age. Infused with advanced alien technology, Victor is now pretty much at one with machinery, manipulating it at his will.

Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University.  After a horrific accident nearly cost him his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used alien technology to reconstruct his body.  In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts.  In other words, a Cyborg. 

  • Acclaimed theater actor Ray Fisher stars as Cyborg / Victor Stone in Justice League, following his dramatic cameo in footage revealing Victor’s cybernetic rebirth in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Powers

  • Super strength
  • Instant weaponry and tech
  • Genius-level intellect
  • Ability to communicate with and control technology

Occupation

Former student

Alias/AKA

Member of Teen Titans

Origins

Cyborg was created in 1980 by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez, and first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26, introducing the popular Teen Titans Super Hero team.

A fan-favorite in the Teen Titans comics and animated series (voiced by Khary Payton), Cyborg was reimagined in the August 2011 issue of Justice League #1, as part of DC’s The New 52 relaunch.

FIRST LOOK TO THE VILLAIN : STEPPENWOLF

Brought to terrifying life by Northern Irish actor Ciarán Hinds (aided by state-of-the-art, motion-capture technology), Steppenwolf is a military general from the planet Apokolips (a fiery hellhole that you really wouldn’t want to visit). He’s been sent to Earth by his nephew Darkseid, who’s also his commanding officer, to retrieve three Mother Boxes (miniature supercomputers with astonishingly powerful abilities). To what end? Well, if these threatening words from the trailer are anything to go by, then nothing good:

“No protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall. Like all the others.”


BACK FROM THE DEAD? 

The most famous superhero of them all (don’t even try to argue!), Superman (AKA Kal-El, AKA Clark Kent) is an alien from the planet Krypton who was sent to Earth by his parents just minutes before his home-world was destroyed. His powers, which he gets from Earth’s yellow sun, are seemingly infinite and include flight, super-strength, X-ray vision, freezing breath, etc, etc.

Everyone assumed he was immortal until he, er, died at the end of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. But does he appear in Justice League? Well, that’s the big question. And if he does appear, will he be the Man of Steel we know and love ? Only time will tell…


TIME FOR ACTION!

Justice Leagues hits cinemas November 17th! If you can't save the world alone, you also can't watch the film on your own, so to share the excitment book your tickets now!
