Zack Snyder has given us the best look yet at the team of super friends joining together for Justice League.
To mark the end of shooting in London, the filmmaker has taken to Twitter to release an 84-second sizzle reel showing a combination of behind-the-scenes action and plenty of clowning around (who says DC movies aren’t fun?) on the set of the team-up film coming to theaters in just over a year.

Here are some of the highlights:
As Snyder has said, Justice League picks up after the events of Batman v Superman. With the Kryptonian apparently dead (wink-wink), Batman and Wonder Woman go on a quest to assemble other meta-humans Lex Luthor had been keeping tabs on — Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg — to stop an impending extraterrestrial threat from wiping out Earth. That threat turns out to be a character known as Steppenwolf. Snyder says Justice League was inspired in part by Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (which also spawned 1960’s The Magnificent Seven and its recently released reboot starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt.)
Filming on Justice League kicked off in April and wrapped principal photography last week in the U.K. (Momoa has since headed to Iceland for some additional shooting.)
“I just want to say a quick thanks to my cast and crew, and thank you U.K.,” says Snyder at the end of the video. “It’s been amazing.”
Justice League lands in theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
