The Bat has some stuff on his mind. “It’s time to make this right,” he says in the latest teaser for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the four-hour director’s cut that arrives on HBO Max later this month.
There’s a lot less going on here than in the full trailer, but it’s focused on Batman’s need to bring people together (and a bit of skepticism from Jeremy Irons’ Alfred). Batman appears to have some guilt about that time he and Superman got into a big fight, but they’re playing nice now! Superman helps him up! BROS!
Heard but not seen characters include Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter (“I have a stake in this world, and it’s time I started fighting for it”), Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, just a soupçon of Jared Leto’s Joker cackle, and an ominous threat from Darkseid. The trailer offers one little tiny bit of fun, and it’s the Flash’s ever-so-slightly saucy cocked-knee pose. Ezra Miller knows this movie is taking itself very seriously. Ezra Miller knows this movie plays everything very straight. Ezra Miller is here to mess that up just a little.
Batman also gets his own poster.

Yesterday, the Twitter account for the film revealed the six “chapter titles” within the movie:

The other five chapters are:
2. The Age of Heroes
3. Beloved Mother, Beloved Son
4. “Change Machine”
5. All the King’s Horses
6. “Something Darker”
Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres on HBO Max on March 18th. It seems a reasonable guess that we may get more character-focused teasers and posters in the coming days.
