Lex Luthor/Queen Hippolyta confirmed for ‘Justice League’ and NEW ‘Wonder Woman’ image released
It has been confirmed today by Warner Bros. that Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta) will be joining the cast for the upcoming 2017 release of Justice League.
Eisenberg, who was last seen in Batman v Superman, had made it known he would be in the film but now we have confirmation from Warner Bros. themselves. Connie Nielsen will be seen in next summers, Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot. Also revealed during the press release was that the film would be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX formats.
Earlier this week we got a newly released image from Entertainment Weekly showcasing Batman, Wonder Woman, and Flash. Today Entertainment Weekly has given us another image but this time it is from Wonder Woman. The image shows Diana/Wonder Woman grabbing her sword, “God Killer”, from what looks to be an armory. Director Patty Jenkins commented,
“This is her moment. She’s heard all the terrible things about man’s land. But she’s also heard that mankind is in need and under duress. This is her great moment to make the decision to be the one to try and save them.”
This week has not been short on DCEU news and fans are still hoping to get the trailer for Justice League before the end of the year. Maybe if we are all really good and leave milk and cookies out then Santa Snyder will drop a trailer into all of our Christmas stockings.
