Superman returns in an unexpected way in new Justice League trailer

Superman is finally here in the latest trailer for Justice League– well, sort of. The trailer kicks off with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) staring out into the sun, where she can see Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) walking peacefully through a cornfield. "I'll take that as a yes," he tells her, much to her confusion. "The ring," he replies, before the video zooms in on her hand. 

Wearing an engagement ring, Lois, now all in black, begins to drop dirt onto Clark's grave. It's then revealed that this was all a dream, as Lois wakes up alone, with the news saying that "violence, acts of war, and terrorism" are all on the rise after Superman's death.

"I had a dream," Ben Affleck's Batman says. "It was the end of the world." As he says this, images of war and destruction play across the screen, with Aquaman (Jason Momoa) stepping up to try to take a large group of fighters down. "I think it's something more," he says to Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). "Something darker." 

"We're asking people we don't know to risk their lives," Diana says, as they begin to recruit the team. Aquaman does not seem as though he will be on board at first, telling Bruce, "Strong men are strongest alone." "That's not a saying," he replies. "That's the opposite of what the saying is."

"Divided, we are not enough," Bruce says, as the clip shows pictures of its heroes in peril. "The world needs to remember. I made him a promise– which is why I brought you together." The trailer then shows more of what appears to be the film's fiinal action sequence, and explosive and intense conflict highlighted entirely in red.

Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciaran Hinds, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K. Simmons, Joe Morton, Robin Wright, Amber Heard, Kiersey Clemons, and Billy Crudup also star in Justice League, which was finished by Joss Whedon after original director Zack Snyder had to depart due to a family tragedy. The movie hits theaters on Nov. 17.
