With some time to kill between now and Justice League's November 17, 2017 debut, fans are left to speculate as to the make up and screenplay of the superhero ensemble that is sure to make a splash at the box office. The latest teaser was provided courtesy of USA Today as the publication was given a new still from production that showed Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash and Aquaman side-by-side.
Yet there is one obvious absentee - Superman. Henry Cavill's Man of Steel did not feature on the trailer and with every passing leak, it seems director Zack Snyder along with Warner Brothers and DC Films are doing something a little unusual by keeping his details under wraps. Cavill is listed in the cast so expect an appearance, but given the world of DC it could be anything from a flashback to a vision or even a flash forward? The conclusion to Batman v Superman outlined that his "death" was anything but, however he could still be 6-feet under during this one.

Director Snyder has a lot on his plate to balance a number of heroes in one picture as well as laying the framework for future instalments. One member in particular has garnered a lot of chat as Wonder Woman builds on her role in Batman v Superman prior to Gal Gadot's own stand alone movie.
“It has its moments, but it can be brutal, and her coming to terms with that dichotomy is what we come to learn about her," said Snyder of Wonder Woman. "And in Justice League, she’s fully evolved into someone who’s embraced mankind, partly through Superman’s sacrifice. She’s like, ‘All right, I’ve got to pick it up.’”
Caring Cavill As Henry Hands Out Gifts On Set
Sometimes the public perception of Hollywood stars can be a fairly cynical and static one. That is of a glib narcissist who only care of themselves and their careers. But one crew member of Justice League in Sherice Griffiths illustrated that Mr. Cavill is anything but as she posted on social media a couple of gifts provided by Superman himself.
With a full black shirt that had the logo and a badge to boot, Cavill wrote a note to Griffiths thanking her for her work.
“It has been quite the battle shooting this movie," began Cavill, "but I could imagine no better people to have struggled alongside. Thank you so much for your hard work, tenacity and great humour! See you next time, it has been an absolute pleasure!”
