Warner Bros Reveals Gorgeous New JUSTICE LEAGUE Poster

The Justice League will come together in San Diego Comic-Con’s very own Hall of Justice, the vaunted Hall H, for the Warner Bros. panel later today, but in advance of the panel Warner Bros. and DC Comics have released a brand new poster for the film that seemingly draws inspiration from the photorealistic paintings work of Alex Ross. The poster features a stunning photograph of Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Batman (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) giving us their best Blue Steel, as well as the tagline “You can’t save the world alone,” but remixed into a superheroic version of the “Coexist” logo.

The resemblance to Ross’ aesthetic is uncanny, and is an incredibly savvy way to showcase these iconic, larger-than-life heroes in the way that many fans have been waiting to see them. Here’s one of Ross’ Justice League paintings for comparison. Pay careful attention to both the poses and the use of light. (And click to see a larger version of the image.)

What stands out more than anything are the bright, vibrant colors of the poster, which is perhaps a deliberate marketing movie in response to complaints about the previously dour, dreary palette of pre-Wonder Woman DC Extended Universe entries.

As for what the rest of the movie looks like–particularly after Joss Whedon stepped in to help with reshoots and directing the film in the wake of Zack Snyder’s departure to spend time with his family–stay tuned to Nerdist later today for our ongoing coverage of Comic-Con and all the biggest DC Comics announcements coming out of Hall H.
