Even though Justice League's only 31 days into the 111 scheduled for production, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. still managed to show off a clip from the film at last weekend, on set in London.
The scene opens on Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) entering his dark lit apartment, and shortly thereafter all the lights come on to expose Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) sitting there, waiting for him.
“Barry Allen… Bruce Wayne,” Bruce says addressing a stunned Barry Allen. “You say that is if it’s normal to have a complete stranger sitting in my second favorite chair,” Barry responds to several laughs from a few press members that are around to watch the epic introduction.
Bruce proceeds to whip out a surveillance shot, which was Flash's cameo appearance in Batman v. Superman; and continues to question Barry about what he was doing during the footage. Barry responds saying that sure, it's someone who looks exactly like him, but is probably just an 'attractive Jewish boy.'
Bruce undeterred by Barry's expectant reluctance to reveal his identity, chucks a Batarang at Barry, who easily sidesteps the assault, launching the scene into slow motion and capturing that moment when Barry learns Bruce's true identity (and vice versa).
Time falls back to normal pacing, and Barry says, "You’re the Batman,” to which Bruce responds, “And you’re fast.” Then Barry tells him Bruce he thinks that way of thinking about the matter is an “over-simplification.”
Scene closes with Bruce recruiting a very eager Flash, who says he needs and friends, and also asks to keep the Batarang.
The Exec. Producer for Justice League, Deborah Snyder confirmed that Steppenwolf will be the main villain in Justice League, though the final casting for the role hasn't been decided just yet.
Steppenwolf is Darkseid's uncle, and also one of his most valued lieutenants. Steppenwolf's been killed and brought back to life multiple times, with the first and most memorable time being after he assassinated Izaya, the Highfather of New Genesis.
Heggra, Steppenwolf's sister was Darkseid's mother, until Darkseid went on to kill her. Steppenwolf's basically known as the undisputed military mind behind Darkseid's army of Parademons.
Who should play Steppenwolf? Check out the deleted scene from Batman v Superman, which shows us our first glimpse of the villain in action, below:
Vulko was created by Bob Haney and Howard Purcell. Vulko's a talented Atlantean politician who plays an invaluable role as a mentor (also the city's eldest dignitary) to Aquaman. Before Aquaman's reign, Vulko was around for his birth where he fought and argued against the curse of Kordax.
We're not sure just yet how much screen-time Dafoe will be getting, but we do know he's set to appear in the full Atlantean-royal costume.
Commissioner Gordon is about to be ripped, guys. J.K. Simmons is clearly not taking this role lightly.
Simmons is 61-years-old. When I'm 61, I'll be somewhere on a white sandy beach with a bottomless bucket of beers on ice within arms reach, and a fat Cuban cigar hangin' out my mouth, with my biggest worry being whether to switch over to Cadillac Margaritas before or after taking a dip in the Caribbean waters. A guy can dream, right? Check out a couple more shots of Simmons in action on his training regimen below:
