With November fast approaching, almost all comic book fans are already looking forward to Justice League, the next in line for the DCEU, or the DC Cinematic Universe. The first film in the franchise came out in 2013 with Man of Steel, followed by Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and the most recent, the box-office hit Wonder Woman.

Well, look no more, as Justice League’s Grand Mall Launch has provided DCEU fans what they deserve. Whether you’re a DCEU faithful or just a casual moviegoer, you’d be stoked to see what Justice League’s Grand Mall Launch has unveiled to the public, using the official hashtag #JOINTHELEAGUE.
Held last October 14 at SM North Edsa – The Block Atrium, the event featured trivia games for the avid fans and had giveaway freebies for the attendees.
The attendees were given a treat of seeing the film’s latest preview for the first time, packed with action scenes of the five heroes–Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. Every DC fan got hyped up as to what’s next in the DCEU movies.
The final Justice League trailer was shown to us with a promise of comic book goodness, iconic cinematography, and kick-ass battles (pun intended) where the heroes helped each other by using their special abilities.
Watch the trailer here:
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), and J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon). Justice League opens November 16!
