Action Adventure. 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.

Whedon stepped in to help with post-production work on "Justice League" earlier this year following director Zack Snyder's unexpected departure from the film in light of a family tragedy. At this point, it remains to be seen if Whedon will receive co-director credit as well.

"Justice League" premieres in theaters worldwide on November 17th.
