Actor Ben Affleck, who is all set to direct and star in next Batman movie, surprised his fans with a new trailer of Justice League at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Watch trailer:

The movie reunites all three “meta-humans” in Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot; Batman, played by Ben Affleck for a second time; and Henry Cavill’s Superman.

The joke-laden trailer is a marked contrast from Batman v Superman, which was heavily criticized for its dark tone and taking itself too seriously.

I’ve never done this before, it’s kind of nerdy. It’s just not going to happen again, it’s kind of a cool moment for me,” Affleck said.

The actor also talked about his new Batman movie.
