Watch the White Stripes Power the New ‘Justice League’ Trailer
Subscribe to Diffuser.fm on
Last July, Warner Bros. produced a trailer for Justice League specially for San Diego Comic-Con that used the White Stripes‘ “Icky Thump.” Their first “official” trailer, which arrived this morning, uses another White Stripes song, “The Hardest Button to Button,” and can be viewed above.
Arriving Nov. 17, the Zack Snyder-directed film stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and apparently picks up where last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, ended. The official synopsis reads, “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.
Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and Ezra Miller (the Flash) round out the other members of the Justice League, J.K. Simmons plays Commissioner Gordon and Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor. Henry Cavill‘s Superman is not featured in the trailer, but he was seen in promotional artwork for the film and is listed in the film’s IMDB page. And Amy Adams, as Lois Lane, can be seen at the 1:45 mark.
Although “The Hardest Button to Button,” which appeared on the White Stripes’ 2003 album Elephant, kicks off the clip, about a minute in it switches to a hard rock cover of the Beatles‘ “Come Together” performed by an as-yet undisclosed artist.
