DC and Warner Bros. have released a new series of posters for their upcoming blockbuster Justice League, which will arrive in theaters on November 17th. Where the last major poster for the movie, which will now be a collaborative project between Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon as directors, featured the team in one place, the latest set shows each character in portrait. There’s a passing similarity with the recent series of Mike Mitchell‘s Mondo Star Wars portraits and the style is more than suitable to these titans of comic book lore. There’s a simplicity to the compositions that is agreeably at odds with the often chaotic look and feel of the DC films that hopefully Justice League will be able to avert. You can check out the posters right below via a tweet from Justice League’s UK account.
Justice League will follow in the footsteps of Wonder Woman, the most purely enjoyable movie for the DCEU to date and currently the seventh most popular film of 2017 at the worldwide box office, right after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Though the movie will clearly make a lofty amount of money, what will be most interesting about Justice League is how it reconciles Whedon and Snyder’s very different styles within its runtime while also laying the groundwork for singular movies about Batman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman, as well as the inevitable return of Superman in the wake of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As the tweet points out, prints of these Justice League posters will be available in October, but we’ll still have to wait until November to see how all of this will come together.

Here’s the official synopsis for Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
