Taking place a few months after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League will follow Batman and Wonder Woman recruiting Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg to help protect the world in Superman’s absence and serve as a new beacon of hope to the world. This team’s formation comes not a moment too soon, as they’ll have to thwart the alien invasion led by Steppenwolf. Sent by Darkseid to retrieve the three Mother Boxes that have been hidden on Earth for thousands of years, Steppenwolf and his Parademon army will stop at nothing to fulfill this mission and destroy our world. The movie will also see Superman be resurrected from the dead, though the exact circumstances of his return have thankfully been kept under wraps. Other notable DC characters set to appear in Justice League include Alfred Pennyworth, Lois Lane, Commissioner James Gordon, Hippolyta and more.
