Ben Affleck Joins Other ‘Justice League’ Stars in Vegas But Zack Snyder Does All the Talking

CinemaCon 2017: DC Films stars make a surprisingly low-key appearance at Warner Bros. presentation

Ben Affleck joined other “Justice League” cast members Henry Cavill and Ray Fisher on stage at the annual CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas after a screening of some new footage.

However, the cast remained relatively mum as director Zack Snyder did all the talking after Fisher and Ezra Miller entered the stage giving each other a piggyback ride.

The footage revealed to audiences on Wednesday didn’t really feature anything extremely different from last week’s trailer, except for the opening scene, in which Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred (Jeremy Irons) tells the billionaire caped crusader: “Master Wayne, you’ve been working like there’s no tomorrow to build this team.”

“I need to bring us together,” responds Ben Affleck‘s Bruce Wayne. “We have to be ready.”

“Justice League” unites some of DC’s biggest superheroes, including Batman (Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). 

Snyder directed the film, which is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder. Chris Terrio, who wrote Affleck’s 2012 Best Picture winner “Argo,” handled the script.

“Justice League” hits theaters on Nov. 17.

At the panel, James Wan introduced some concept art for his standalone “Aquaman” film, which will begin production tonight in Australia for a 2018 release date. Jason Momoa stepped on stage to greet audiences as well. Warner Bros. also played some more footage of Gal Gadot’s standalone “Wonder Woman,” which is hitting theaters this summer.

Ahead of the panel, Snyder tweeted a shot of his actors:
