The final trailer for Justice League debuted Sunday and probably caught many fans by surprise. With all that has happened behind the scenes combined with the lack of Superman in any footage released before today, opening the final trailer with Clark Kent and Lois Lane in a scene extremely reminiscent of Zack Snyder’s style was nice to see — especially since the Justice League trailers have been mostly focused on the action up until this point.
After watching the final trailer over a dozen times, fans might be craving a fresh take on it — Snyder has the answer. The director, who stepped down prior to post-production and reshoots due to family tragedy, shared a storyboard through Vero of the trailer’s opening scene Sunday which featured Lois Lane’s dream.
You can check out the storyboard below:
Apart from the faces, the most obvious difference from the storyboard and final product is Henry Cavill’s first line. That changed from “That’s a yes” to “I’ll take that as a yes.” The scene was also a clear homage to Superman: The Movie — appealing to the more “traditional” Superman fans.
What followed was a series of high-octane actions sequences. Hopefully Snyder will be generous enough to share more storyboards in the near future.
The film stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko.
“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.”

5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel
Superman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.
Man of Steel was released in 2013 to decent reviews. The movie was a financial hit, but instead of doing a direct sequel, Warner Bros. went with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie has come and gone and Justice League is on the horizon. Last year, it was also announced that a sequel to Man of Steel was coming along. There has been no word on that movie other than a few rumors here and there. This may be due to the situation that Superman was left in at the end of Batman v Superman, which will be resolved in Justice League.
