UPDATED: Get to Know the Justice League with Cyborg, Aquaman, and Flash Featurettes
We just got our first real look at the Wonder Woman movie, but since they haven't started filming yet, it'll be a while before we see footage of Justice League members Cyborg, Aquaman, The Flash, and Green Lantern. Green Lantern is still shrouded in mystery, and possibly hasn't even been cast yet, but four new featurettes from last night's DC special on The CW has given us our first introduction to the rest of the Justice League aside from the Holy Trinity.

UPDATE - 01/20/16 02:18 pm

The CW released a featurette for Green Lantern Corps, although it leaves the character(s) pretty much just as mysterious as before.

Green Lantern




We don't get much more than concept art in this one, but Geoff Johns confirms that Green Lantern Corps will be "coming to the Justice League universe."

Original article below:

Cyborg




Cyborg, best known for being a member of the Teen Titans, is a young man who is in a horrible accident, but is saved by his tech-savvy father, who fuses him with technology and makes him a cyborg.

Opening quote
"He's a technopath, which means he can just interface seamlessly with anything technological," actor Ray Fisher says in the video. "His greatest weakness is, actually, trying not to succumb to the technology, trying to stay human."
Closing quote


Geoff Johns also teases that the character is "always plugged in," "online 24/7," and is "constantly taking in data." So your typical Millennial, then.

Aquaman




In this featurette, they try really, really hard to make Aquaman sound cool, playing up his super-strength and his dominion over the sea. Jason Momoa says he's "both human and a god" while Johns says he's "trapped between two worlds." He's basically the DCEU's answer to Thor, which we can get on board with.

The Flash




Johns says that this character has been "awesome on television" (then why not use Grant Gustin, guys?). But if it can't be Grant Gustin, it might as well be Ezra Miller, who seems pretty perfect for the role. 

We all know The Flash's origin story by now: his mother was killed, his father was blamed and put in prison, and he was struck by lightning (because this family has the worst luck in the world), granting him super-speed.

Opening quote
"He can run through walls, he can run across water, he can run so fast that he can move into another plane of frequency, where there's another reality," says Miller.
Closing quote

Aquaman and Cyborg (and possibly the Flash) will be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25. Justice League comes out on November 17, 2017, while The Flash opens March 23, 2018, Aquaman on July 27, 2018, and Cyborg is set all the way for April 3, 2020, followed by Green Lantern Corps on June 19, 2020.
