Last night’s half-hour DC Films: Dawn of the Justice League special that aired on The CW gave us lots of goodies including a new Suicide Squad trailer as well some footage from Wonder Woman. Also included in the special were featurettes featuring three characters that’ll be making an appearance in next year’s Justice League: Part One; The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.
First up is a featurette for The Flash, a character who currently occupies your television screen, but will get his own separate big-screen treatment in 2018. In this featurette, we get some concept art, as well as an appearance from The Flash himself, Ezra Miller as he describes the Scarlet Speedster’s powers, while rocking a shorter-than-usual hairdo for the actor. Perhaps this ‘do is in preparation for his role in Justice League: Part One, which will begin filming this Spring? Who knows.
Next up, we got a look at Aquaman, who will be played by Jason Momoa. Here, Momoa expresses his anticipation to see his character, who he describes as a a human and a god, deal with the powers he has. Meanwhile, CCO of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns touches upon the character’s origin and teases that the underworld sea of Atlantis (which Aquaman rules) will get explored in the character’s solo film, which will also arrive in 2018.
And lest we forget Cyborg. In this spotlight, Cyborg’s powers and origin are described by Johns, while Ray Fisher, who’ll be playing the character, chimes in on the danger of his character succumbing to his technopathic powers. Though his solo film is a ways out (it’s scheduled to come out sometime in 2020), we get some concept art of the character here as we look forward to seeing this lesser-known Justice Leaguer finally get his chance to shine on the silver screen.
So, that’s about it, folks. Johns also offered a brief update on 2020’s Green Lantern Corps, reaffirming that its characters will have a part in the DC Extended Universe, though that was confidently assumed prior to last night’s special. All and all, this was a nice treat for DC fans to get them excited for what’s in store.
