Last week, a select handful of reporters were invited to the set of Justice League, and they’ve brought back a bunch of new information with them. There’s a lot to digest, but it definitely sounds like this movie will be a huge improvement over Batman v Superman.
A breakdown of all the new plot details can be found in the video below, but among the highlights is the fact that Steppenwolf (who has yet to be cast) will be the villain. However, Darkseid’s presence will also be felt as the Parademons are set to return. The plot meanwhile will revolve around the Dark Knight assembling the team and attempting to recover three Mother Boxes; one on Earth, one in Atlantis, and one in Wonder Woman’s home, Themyscira.
The official synopsis for Justice League also alludes to that, and you can read it here:
“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.”
Snyder also revealed to those in attendance that Superman returns fairly late in the film, while we’ll also see a number of new vehicles and the return of Batman’s badass armour.
