Hours after we received word that Justice League: Part One is going in front of cameras this April, we already have our first look behind-the-scenes of the DC team-up. The image was released on director Zack Snyder’s Twitter page as he poses next to Aquaman actor Jason Momoa. It doesn’t reveal too much beyond blurring glimpses of some of the props and costumes, fans do get their first peeks at suits for the Atlantian superhero, Ezra Miller’s The Flash, and Ben Affleck’s Batman.
This DC world’s Dark Knight and Man of Steel will be returning in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next month along with Momoa, which means we’ll get much clearer looks at those characters ahead of Justice League. We’ve also seen much more colorful looks via the action figures tied to the film. But it’s still unclear how The Flash will be teased — whether he’ll be just a blur, get a name drop, or be featured in full costume. So, at least for now, this is our best look.
See the set pic below.

Amid a report from HitFix that states Warner Bros. is worried about the quality of Batman v Superman and what it might mean for the DC slate moving forward, the studio is still going ahead with Justice League. EW revealed today that Snyder is on board to the direct and filming will begin on April 11th at the Leavesden Studios in England. Based on the hashtags in Snyder’s tweet, that’s where this behind-the-scene image hails from.
The plot of Justice League: Part One is still under wraps, though an image from Batman v Superman revealed a tease for Darkseid, while another unconfirmed report claims Bizarro will be the villain. Regardless, the film will also see Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. The WB also announced a Green Lantern Corps. movie for 2020, though no one has been announced as the Lantern (or the Lanterns?). So we’ll have to wait and see what’s in store.
Justice League: Part One is scheduled for theaters on November 17th, 2017. Part Two will drop on June 14th, 2019.
