The newest look at the highly anticipated DC Extended Universe film dropped at San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s the most action-packed—and most humorous—trailer yet.
Zack Snyder handled directing duties for the majority of the Justice League shoot, but Joss Whedon took over after Snyder suffered a family tragedy, and it already seems like he’s had an impact. With Wonder Woman smashing box office records and Whedon’s reputation for strong female characters, it’s no surprise that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman takes the central ass-kicking role in the trailer.
This extended peek gives fans the first real look at the villainous Steppenwolf (Game of Thrones’ Mance Rayder, Ciarán Hinds), a minion of the all-powerful Darkseid, and plenty of badass action involving Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (the super-jacked and shredded Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher):
Momoa looks like he’s having more fun than anyone playing Arthur Curry, dropping funny lines like “this is crazy” and “honestly, I think we’re all gonna die,” as Steppenwolf’s Parademons battle against the heroes.
There’s still no sign of Superman (Men’s Fitness cover star Henry Cavill) in the trailer, but there are numerous hints to the Man of Steel—and possibly another hero: Green Lantern. There has been buzz that one (or more) Lanterns will appear in Justice League, and this trailer gives fans some teases, including a mysterious green light in a shot of the team vehicle, and a reflection in Alfred’s glasses.
The film also got an absolutely stunning new poster, inspired by the artwork of famed comic book illustrator Alex Ross:

No matter which Lanterns or Supermen show up, this movie is going to be explosive—and fun as hell.
