Today, Warner Bros. gave Zack Snyder’s vision for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a major vote of confidence when the studio announced that the first Justice League movie would begin production in April, mere weeks after the March 25 release of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel heavyweight bout.
And Snyder is all too happy to tease fans of the DC Entertainment daydreams to come—and his center stage role in realizing them. Taking to Twitter, the Man of Steel director revealed the new below image of himself and Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, aka the first big screen Aquaman. While apparently in Warner Brothers’ Leavesden Studios (in Southern England), Snyder showed off the workshop next to Momoa, saying, “Deep in it with Jason on JL.” Yet, fans will be more interested in ogling what is around and behind the two men.
In the foreground, it is very evident that Ben Affleck’s Batman cowl will remain short-eared in Justice League Part One, but more enticing is what is behind them. The clear and shiny The Flash costume to be worn by Ezra Miller can be seen (and it is definitely more glossy than the CW alternative you can watch every week). And in front of that is what I suspect is Momoa’s Aquaman costume since the sculpted figure in it wears a beard, and it looks vaguely reminiscent of Aquaman’s comic book costume—in shape if not color (though it may not be painted yet).
And before that is a blinding black costume. At first glance, fans might assume this to be Batman’s latest get-up, but considering Snyder is such a fanboy of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, which he worked very hard to replicate the artwork of in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we have our doubts. The lines on that one make it look like something that could very easily become a Green Lantern suit once some color is added to it.
There’s also a piece of concept art depicting a woman with medium length red hair. Perhaps this is a depiction of Mera, the Queen of Atlantis, who Amber Heard may be on board to play.
If you think you know what everything in the teaser is, let us know in the comments below! In the meantime, you can look forward to Justice League Part One (it has to have a name change on the horizon, right?) on Nov. 10, 2017.
