Justice League introduced audiences to Cyborg — a character who was originally one of the key members of the Teen Titans, but has since graduated to the ranks of the Justice League starting in 2011 with the New 52 reboot. The promo, which is presumably the first of five or six, highlights his adaptable superpowers and technical prowess.
The new promo hits about 3 weeks ahead of the movie’s release on digital formats and about 7 weeks ahead of the movie’s release on DVD and Blu-Ray. It can be seen below:

10 DC Storylines We Want To See Adapted In The DC Extended Universe
The DC Extended Universe has drawn inspiration from plenty of iconic storylines from DC Comics. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice drew inspiration from both The Dark Knight Returns and Death of Superman, while Suicide Squad adapted the popular lineup from the New 52 launch and the stage is set for Flashpoint.
DC Comics is filled with great iconic storylines that could inspire a film slate for decades and still barely scratch the surface of the rich mythology. DC would be wise to not make a straight adaptation of any of these classic storylines, but draw inspiration from them. They can still remain true to the original intent of the work without being a straight adaptation. If you need proof take a look at how Captain America: Civil War pretty much only uses the broad concept of a superhero registration but creates essentially an original storyline that makes sense within that universe based off the comic. Or how Batman Begins draws elements from The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween without making a page to page adaptation.
The storylines chosen are not just because of how great they were as original comics (which they were) but also the storytelling possibilities they open up. Basically how different they would be from other superhero projects or just ways they could grow the universe.
