Justice League Trailer


The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.

Jason Momoa

Jasom Momoa's latest film is the edgy romantic thriller The Bad Batch, set in a near-future in which society's undesirables are sent into a desert wasteland where they live without rules. "The Bad Batch is heavy, gnarly and amazing," Momoa says enthusiastically. "The director's first film was called A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, which won the Gotham Award for breakthrough director for Ana Lily Amirpour. So The Bad Batch is pretty rad!"

Momoa says that he enjoys making projects that are off the beaten track. "Some of my favourite movies are where it looks like hell to have shot them," he laughs. "The rain and the dirt and mud all make it easier to act. I identify with the outcast thing, and I really love it."

Is Jason Momoa The Superhero We've Been Waiting For?


Jason Momoa

'Justice League' is finally hitting screens this Fall, following up events in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'. But there's only one thing on people's mind right now with regards to the film; Jason Momoa's Aquaman. Could his arrival be a hugely advantageous turning point for the DC franchise?

Arthur Curry aka Aquaman is probably the most heavily modified of all movie-adapted comic book superheroes. As DC fans will know, the character is hardly portrayed as one of the coolest members of 'Justice League'; in fact, he is just about the most scoffed at and underrated superhero in the whole DC Universe.

Ben Affleck Gal Gadot Jason Momoa Zack Snyder

The first major trailer for 'Justice League' has finally dropped and it tells us a lot about what to expect in the forthcoming DC movie. Following directly on from 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', we meet the majority of the team and the dangers they're set to face.

[L-R] The Flash, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman make up the Justice League[L-R] The Flash, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman make up the Justice League

We see Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) having taken a long journey somewhere, most likely to track down Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) in an isolated fishing village. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) is the first to unite with Bruce as he gathers the Justice League, both spurred by the brave sacrifice of their friend Clark Kent (Henry Cavill). Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) is a little shocked to be recruited, especially while he's got his own problems to deal with such as his father Henry Allen (Billy Crudup) being in prison.

So Dwayne Johnson was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year; a decision that has been the source of both praise and confusion.

Here are ten more Hollywood heartthrobs who deserve to be named 'Sexiest Man Alive' sooner rather than later.

As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone.
