Director Zack Snyder brought out the big guns at the Las Vegas CinemaCon to introduce scenes from the upcoming DC Comics films Justice League and Wonder Woman.
By his side were actors Ben Affleck (Batman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Henry Cavill (Superman).
He looked back on his seven year journey to bring these characters together on film. “I got a call from producers Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas asking me how do you feel about Superman? And, so, I’m here today,” he said.
The session focussed on the upcoming Justice League movie (November), Wonder Woman (June) and Aquaman (which, according to Momoa, he was leaving to shoot that very day).
The event, which is designed for studios to showcase their upcoming slate for theatre owners also attracts movie journalists and critics, most of whom report back on Twitter.
Here are some reactions:

Just saw a super slick reel of Aquaman concepts. It included people riding sharks underwater described as a dogfight. Wan has a great vision— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) March 30, 2017
