“Justice League” has been shrouded in mystery since it was announced, but set visit reports shared new details about the DC Comics tentpole, and Warner Bros. released an official plot synopsis on Tuesday, as well.

While “Batman v Superman” climaxed with the titular superheroes teaming up with Wonder Woman to save Metropolis and Gotham from Doomsday, prepare for an even bigger villain to launch an “assault of catastrophic proportions” on the entire planet.

Here’s the synopsis in its entirety:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes–Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash–it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

The movie’s logo (above) has also been released.

The first “Justice League” movie will fly into theaters on November 17, 2017. From there, Aquaman and The Flash will star in their own standalone movies in 2018, before director Zack Snyder returns for the 2019 release “Justice League – Part 2.”

Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay, while Charles Roven, Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing. The cast returning cast from “Batman v Superman” includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot. New cast members include Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
