By now, I'm sure you brought yourself up to speed on all the information that's been uncovered on the set of JUSTICE LEAGUE (Chris Bumbray has the lowdown on everything you need to know, if for some reason you haven't yet). And while this certainly felt like damage control by Warner Bros. and everyone involved with the film to change the conversation from one of pessimism to hope following the chilly reception for BATMAN V SUPERMAN, people in large volume certainly are a bit more enthusiastic about what they're hearing now than they were a couple months ago. Mission accomplished. Perceptions have been changed, which is exactly what they wanted and needed to do.

And with these sprinkles of goodness now filling up the DC Cinematic Universe chatter, Warner Bros. decided not to stop there while controlling the news cycle today and have plopped down a nice fat juicy cherry on top of everything else - an official synopsis for JUSTICE LEAGUE. It may not seem like much extra, when compared to the wealth of knowledge you gained earlier... but it's just another tidbit the studio can offer up in order to maintain momentum and keep fans talking about their movie in favorable fashion. 

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.

Is it really too late? Well, I guess the only way to raise the stakes on a film like this, which already has a ton more movies scheduled to follow, is to tease that the inevitable saving of the day might not come about as smoothly as possible. There may be some catastrophe as the heroes get their shit together, prompting them to band together even more solidly once things really look awful. Plus, there is the downplaying of Superman there, which we already learned might be a big part of how JUSTICE LEAGUE works. 

The DC Cinematic Universe is interesting once again... That's for sure.
