Batman Meets Aquaman In New Justice League Clip

Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Batman (Ben Affleck) are going to have a tense meeting in Justice League. A new clip from the film shows how the two first come together, and it looks like it won't be all sunshine and rainbows right off the bat.

The clip features Bruce Wayne in an isolated, cold village at what appears to be a town meeting. Bruce asks around for "a stranger who comes to this village from the sea," bringing food for the hungry citizens. As he says this, Arthur Curry stands tensely by, watching to see what the hero wants.

Arthur tries to send him off the trail by saying that there is an iceberg in the harbor, preventing ships from getting in, but Bruce knows that the man he's looking for doesn't come by ship. "There are enemies coming from far away," Bruce says. "I need warriors. I'm building an alliance to defend ourselves." 

Realizing what Bruce wants, Arthur starts to get angry, telling him to get out. "Can you at least point me to Atlantis?" Bruce replies, sarcastically, leading Arthur to pick him up and slam him against the wall. "Arthur Curry," Bruce says, revealing his intention. "Also known as the protector of the oceans. The Aquaman. I hear you can talk to fish." 

Batman won't be the only team member who Aquaman doesn't gel with right away. Momoa previously revealed that he and Ray Fisher's Cyborg "do not get along at all," although he said that that will change over time. "It's the same thing with Bruce," he said. "I'm like, 'Nah, I'm not buying into it.'"

Aquaman won't be in conflict with all the members of his new team, though. Momoa says that Barry Allen, and the man who plays him, Ezra Miller, is "like a younger brother" to him both on-screen and off. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman also got high praise from the star, who called her "literally one of the most beautiful human beings that has ever existed." However, Momoa said that it was Henry Cavill, who plays Clark Kent/Superman, who gave him the most advice about how to be a superhero. "He gave me all the pointers," Momoa said. 

The entire team will have to unite in the film to save the world from the villainous Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds). The film was finished by The Avengers' Joss Whedon after original director Zack Snyder had to step down due to a family tragedy; Whedon is set to get a writing credit on the flick, while Snyder remains credited as the director. 

Justice League hits theaters on Nov. 17.
