After being overshadowed by Marvel for nearly a decade, DC is finally readying a slate of films that will compete with Iron Man, Captain America and the rest of the theater’s biggest heroes for years to come.
In case you aren’t familiar with all of the characters, from left to right: Aquaman, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash. Whether or not this is the final team remains to be seen, but it’s certainly not a shabby lineup.
At first blush, it might seem fairly arbitrary that DC would pick today to begin the hype train for its own superhero supergroup, but if you’re a fan of the comic book publisher, you probably know that a special called DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League is set to air on The CW tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET.
According to Kevin Smith (who got to see the special early), Dawn of the Justice League will feature new footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first footage of the currently-in-production Wonder Woman movie and the latest trailer for Suicide Squad (which we’ve been anticipating since yesterday).
Here are a couple of teasers for the special, just to whet your appetite:
Be sure to check back later to see the new trailer for Suicide Squad, which should be online shortly after the special concludes.
