Nice trophy, but what's that glowing box?

It's never a good idea to store powerful objects with your old football trophies. This is called a Mother Box -- one heck of a supercomputer, which can open intergalactic portals.

Look behind you!

Glowing eyes lurking behind someone rarely portend anything good. Here's Silas Stone (Joe Morton), father of Victor Stone, aka Cyborg. But could the creature behind him be a Parademon from the planet Apokolips?

Well hello there, Aquaman!

Meet Arthur Curry -- best known as Aquaman. While fans get to first see him in action in "Justice League," he'll also get his own "Aquaman" standalone film, due in 2018.

Shine on, Cyborg!

Cybernetic superhero Cyborg (Ray Fisher) has his glowing eye on the prize. As a technopath, he can manipulate tech. He's also connected to a Mother Box, so there's that.

The Flash is having a blast

The Flash looks like he's having the time of his life. Then again, most of us would be all smiles if we were standing next to Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman stays focused

Always a warrior, Wonder Woman looks off into the distance... probably thinking only of victory.

Aquaman means business

If Aquaman is as good in battle as he is in giving great intense eyebrow stares, the bad guys don't stand a chance.

Underwater battle

Don't bother holding your breath! Underwater fighting is Aquaman's favorite activity.

Fighting with his trusted trident

Winged, laser-throwing enemies like Parademons are no match for Aquaman.

A wondrous hair flip

Her ability to beat up multiple adversaries while doing a shampoo-commercial style hair flip is one of the many reasons to love Wonder Woman.

'I'm rich!'

Barry Allen sasses back to Bruce Wayne asking, "What's your superpower?" And of course, Bruce pulls a Trump card and reminds us all he's got billions in the bank. Sheesh.

Batman to the rescue

Batman driving the Batmobile means fans might be treated to the ultimate car chase scene. Or is he actually sitting in his latest vehicle of choice: the Nightcrawler?

Get ready for some football!

And now for a brief football break with Victor Stone before he became Cyborg. You didn't expect one of the superheroes to be a former golfer, did you?

A glimpse at Mera

Meet Queen Mera (Amber Heard) -- queen of Atlantis. Here she is in her stunning costume, which recalls the character's original comic book outfit. While Heard as Mera is expected to play only a supporting role in "Justice League," she'll have a much bigger part in the upcoming "Aquaman" movie, directed by James Wan.

Father knows best... in prison

In the comics, Henry Allen (Billy Crudup) died in prison before his son Barry Allen could prove his father was innocent of the crime that put him behind bars. However, in the current TV version of "The Flash," Henry was able to be freed from prison. Here's hoping the movie can get that happier outcome.

If you're going to set the stage for a gigantic battle, it might as well be in an intimidating-looking environment like this.

The Flash's fighting stance

When The Flash isn't zooming around at lightning-fast speeds, fans can see he's got some serious fight training, or at least a strong yoga pose, in his arsenal.

Aquaman is bat-friendly

Batman might not enjoy teaming up with another superhero, but at least Aquaman has a cool weapon.

Need a lift?

Aquaman doesn't use a seatbelt, especially when he's planning on taking out a few bad guys while hitching a ride with Batman.

"Justice League" is scheduled to hit theaters November 17 in the US and UK, and November 16 in Australia.
