With Justice League drawing closer and closer to its release, Warner Bros. has debuted a series of new TV spots to get fans excited for the movie. There were rumors that the new trailer for Justice League would show Superman turning evilbut these TV spots don't show Supes at all, much less an evil, red-eyed version of him.

While the spots don't show off a wealth of new footage, most bring new glimpses of the movie. In the first, Diana Prince can be seen heading into a (disappointingly visible) plane, which may hint at the movie's globetrotting plot.



Meanwhile, Batman is hanging out next to the Batsignal, as J. Jonah Jameson Commissioner Gordon summons him to Gotham PD's rooftop, possibly to ask him to bring pictures of Spider-Man.



In The Flash's clip, we get a good look at the character's costume, which appears to have been designed with a high level of detail, possibly in order to make it stand apart from the character's TV counterpart.



Cyborg is the one character in this film that we know the least about at this point, so an opportunity to see his character—complete with special effects that look like they've been beefed up a lot since the first trailer for the movie last year—is very welcome. Cyborg also gains points for being the only hero to be doing any actual heroics in these spots, saving some civilians with his laser arm.



The Aquaman clip shows Arthur Curry embracing and battling waves of water, as in previous clips. Still, any opportunity to see Jason Momoa in action is worth a look.



To reiterate, there's a notable absence of one key member of the Justice League here. DC deserves credit for managing to keep Superman out of the film's marketing up to this point, even though there's absolutely no doubt that the team's most iconic hero will turn up sooner or later.

Perhaps the studio has learned from the mistake of the Batman v Superman trailers, and DC has realized that if you tease the film's third act villain too early, people will stop actually caring about anything that comes before it in the story. If this is the case, we might actually get a sizeable chunk of this movie without Superman, which would be interesting, but also very logical, as former director Zach Snyder has proven time and again that he really doesn't like the character.

Either way, while the movie is just a few short months away from theatrical release, there's a lot going on behind the scenes to try and actually build a finished film out of a shooting period that's dragged on for way longer than anybody could have possibly expected.

Justice League hits US theaters on November 17th, 2017.
