Justice League Trailer Breakdown: 28 Things You Must See

They said the age of heroes was over...

The time has come for Justice to unite. We've finally got the first trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League and inevitably, it's currently the talk of the Internet.

So what did we learn? First off, let's address the elephant in the room - wearing his red underpants over his blue shorts... There's no Superman. Even though the end of Batman v Superman established very much that Supes will return from his "death", the marketeers at Warner Bros are leaving that particular little reveal for down the line.

It's not a bad thing at all, but it means the trailer is at least partly defined by a great big hole in it. Luckily, there are enough moments of bad-assery (which mercifully don't spoil too much) to distract from the missing part. And the choice to go heavy on Aquaman seems to have paid off rather wonderfully.

Will it be the film it deserves to be? Who knows - there are still issues here that anti-DC people will leap on, but there are also decisions that even those not wanting to see Snyder's ensemble fail will find a bit iffy. For instance, where is the sun? Is this all happening at night? And you've really got to hope they clean up some of that CGI before release.

All-in-all though, it's another strong Warner Bros trailer, and it does its job building hype for the movie (and specifically all of its moving parts). So let's get down into the detail properly...
