Now that the Justice League trailer is upon us, breaking it down visually is easier. We got a nice look at J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Amber Heard as Mera. But we also got our first look at Barry Allen/The Flash’s father, Henry.
Based on the trailer, it’s clear that they’ve kept the storyline of Henry being wrongly accused of his wife Nora’s murder. The brief glimpse of him is also very reminiscent of a similar scene from The CW’s The Flash in the way it’s set up and the hands on the glass.
In Justice League, Henry Allen will be played by Billy Crudup. And since Henry is making a cameo appearance in the film, it’s even more likely that we’ll get a glimpse of Barry’s long-time love and reporter, Iris West (Kiersey Clemons), in the movie as well, even though she didn’t appear in the trailer.

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.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Julian Lewis Jones, and Willem Dafoe are also set to appear.
Justice League will be in theaters November 17, 2017.
