With Justice League and Injustice 2 getting a ton of coverage all over social media and news outlets lately and after the last story trailer for "Injustice 2", I thought it'd be a cool project to mix the two up and also try some new video effect techniques in this video. The synopsis of this video is basically telling the story of the "Justice League", and I used the dialogue from the very cool new Story Trailer from "Injustice 2".
What We Know About Justice League So Far
2016 was a transformative year for the superhero genre. For one thing Deadpool proved that an "R" rated superhero film can definitely still work, and be profitable at the same time. Captain America: Civil War kicked the door down for the next age of Marvel movies, including an unforgettable airport fight scene which may be one of the best we've ever seen. Another film which cannot be overlooked is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which kicked things off for DC’s own film universe, setting the stage for the next five years of planned releases from Warner Bros, including a brand new announce "Black Adam" solo film with a "Shazam" film as well. DC will be diving in headfirst, releasing The Justice League Part One in November 2017.
There’s been little doubt as to who the big bad character of The Justice League will be, with strong hints in Batman v Superman pointing toward Darkseid. For those unfamiliar with the character, Darkseid is actually the character Marvel originally based Thanos off of, in a not-so-veiled attempt to compete with Jack Kirby’s popular villain. His main motivations revolve around universal domination and killing everyone who gets in his way, and canonically, he’s the most powerful being in the DC universe. All this makes him a formidable adversary for the fledgling Justice League we’ll see next year, teased at by Batman’s “Knightmare” in BvS (Pictured Above)
Steppenwolf, who is going to be played by Ciaran Hinds, as of now, is looking most likely to be a villain in the film, more news and updates listed below about the so-called villain.
[Update, 5/11/16: A rumor reported by Birth Movies Death claims that while Darkseid will be playing a large role, his uncle, Steppenwolf will be the main villain. In the comics, Steppenwolf is more of a minor character, giving director Zack Snyder plenty of creative license to tell a new story.]
[Update, 5/20/16: Another report from Birth Movies Death tells us that Darkseid won’t play as large in a role in ‘Justice League Part One’ as originally thought, nothing that while “Darkseid is a presence in the movie, and fully appears at the end of the film, don’t expect him to do much.”]
[Update, 9/14/16: According to The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez, one villain who definitely won’t be showing up in ‘Justice League’ is Jared Leto’s Joker.]
[Update, 9/30/16: Director Zack Snyder recently shared an image of himself (see below) that suggests Deathstroke — a villain who will appear in Ben Affleck’s as-yet-untitled Batman solo film — will make an appearnace in ‘Justice League’. As noted by Collider, the storyboard Snyder is working on appears to show Deathstroke with his signature eyepatch.]

Injustice League Trailer
In my new trailer that was released earlier today, I tried to get as much footage of the "Justice League" characters in action as possible, which included some test and back stage footage. I also used some scenes from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" to tell some of the backstory which leads up to the events of the upcoming film. I mixed dialogue from the brand new "Injustice 2" story trailer, like I already stated above, with all types of footage from recent DC films. You can check out the brand new trailer in the link/window above, enjoy!
