Justice League opens in less than two weeks, so Warner has been releasing clips with completed CGI, as opposed to some of the maligned early footage with incomplete CGI. The first of the seven new clips has already been covered here; it shows Batman (Ben Affleck) attempting to recruit a hostile Aquaman (Jason Momoa). That clip didn’t require CGI anyway, nor did the clip above in which Alfred (Jeremy Irons) tries to convince Batman he needs to create the League.
In the clip, Batman argues that it would have been easier if Superman were doing the recruiting: “He was more human than I am. He lived in this world. Fell in love. Got a job. Despite all that power. The world needs Superman, and the team needs Clark.”
Here are the rest of the seven clips, some of which were edited down to shorten them for promotional purposes, starting with this face off between the team and Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) in a tunnel underneath Gotham Harbor. Taking place near water, the fight gives Aquaman a chance to show off some “primitive technology.”
And here’s the scene where Batman tries to figure out what superpower Flash (Ezra Miller) has, while Flash insists his special skills are playing viola, web design, gorilla sign language, and very competitive ice dancing.
In the next clip — which seems to have been very heavily edited down — Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) thwarts a madman’s attempt to blow up a building with schoolchildren present.
Next up, the team meets — then ghosts — Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons), with Wonder Woman apparently glad to see that Cyborg (Ray Fisher) decided to join them.
In this final clip, Flash has second thoughts about fighting, considering the only fighting he’s done in the past involves pushing someone then running away. Batman advises him to “save one” person. Because once you’ve done that, “You’ll know.”
