Comic-Con: First 'Justice League' Teaser Wows in Hall H
The Justice League made their debut during the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation.
Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) were all on hand to work the crowd into a frenzy — and show off the first footage from their anticipated film.

Miller came in rocking a Gandalf costume, drawing big applause. Director Zack Snyder brought out Cavill, joking that even though his Superman died in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, "You've got to have Superman" in Justice League.
Snyder then worked the crowd up even further, saying, "You didn't think we would show footage?" before showing off what he's been up to on the London set.
The first shot was of Affleck's Batman in a village, looking for a man — Aquaman, to be specific.
"I believe an enemy is coming from far away. I'm looking for warriors. This stranger. Others like him," says Affleck's Batman.
Later there's a scene with Batman and Wonder Woman in the Batcave going over a roster of potential recruits, with Batman saying that Aquaman is "more or less" in. Playing up the more comedic tone of the movie, Wonder Woman responds, "More more or more less?" Cut to a scene of Aquaman throwing Bruce Wayne against a wall — and then cut back to Batman and Wonder Woman, with Bruce responding, "Probably more less … he said no."
Justice League will be the second major ensemble film to come out of the DC Extended Universe, following Suicide Squad.
The quick, fun tone of the trailer demonstrates the clean break the DCEU is attempting to make from the darker tone set by Batman v. Superman.
Justice League will hit theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
