A new promotional video for Justice League has been released as part of the film’s Chinese marketing campaign. The short clip features the film’s main cast members wishing their Chinese fans a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival.
The video shows Ezra Miller (Barry Allen/the Flash), Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and Ray Fisher (Victor Stone/Cyborg) all posing together. Momoa’s boisterousness and Affleck’s more serious, arms-crossed posture suggest the cast may have picked up a few personality quirks from their characters – Miller is even decked out in red, complete with a Flash baseball cap!
In the clip, Fisher refers to the Justice League as “the greatest superhero team ever” and we get another look at the group shot of the five League members (minus Superman and a possible Green Lantern) lined up, ready to do battle.
Take a look at the clip in the tweet below.

Justice League hits theaters Nov. 17.
5 Things The ‘Nightwing’ Movie Needs To Get Right
Of all the surprising moves made by DC, announcing a solo Nightwing film was perhaps the most surprising. Considering Batman hasn’t even started filming his solo movie yet, it seemed a bit premature. Then of course came the announcement of the Batgirl movie, and it became clear that DC is hedging its bets in favor of Batman’s surrogate family. While it may have been more favorable to wait until the release of The Batman to consider spinning off the sidekicks, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to with these announcements, but a lot to be apprehensive about too.
Between Batgirl and Nightwing, the Barbara Gordon film is probably the safer bet for an immediately successful solo entry, particularly with Joss Whedon directing and writing. Dick Grayson has a lot more to prove. After all, he’s still considered by general audiences to be simply Robin. They might know that Dick eventually becomes Nightwing, but to most, this just means a change in costume and attitude, but a character who still essentially lives in Batman’s shadow.
This couldnt be further from the truth. In fact, a huge part of Nightwing’s appeal is just how different he is from Batman. Dick has his own way of operating, his own set of values, his own moral code, and his own outlook on life that’s totally different from Bruce Wayne’s. Nightwing represents one of the most optimistic voices in heroism, and when he’s done right, his comic book adventures are a breath of fresh air. There’s a lot of great stuff director Chris Mckay can pull from the Nightwing comics to ensure the movie lives and breathes that authentic Dick Grayson vibe. Here are the 5 things the Nightwing movie needs to get right. Click next to begin!
