Yesterday during WB's big Hall H presentation for Justice League and Aquaman one person was noticeably missing! 

Superman Henry Cavill!

WB also released a new Justice League Comic-Con trailer which didn't feature Superman or Henry Cavill, but seemed to tease his return.

Henry Cavill also happened to notice his absence as he took to social media to make light of the situation!

The end of the Justice League trailer features "ALL IN"--but it can't be all in without Superman!

Henry Cavill posted the Justice League Comic-Con trailer on Instagram adding, "All in! Well, almost."

Aquaman Jason Momoa commented underneath with, "Missed you today, brother."

With Henry Cavill responding, "Missed you guys, too! You guys should do something about that!" and added a wink.

As we saw in the Justice League Comic-Con trailer, the League is going to need a lot of help as Steppenwolf and the Parademons attack Earth to retrieve the three Mother Boxes. Maybe Superman will make his triumphant return with Green Lantern!

Comic-Con also saw Wonder Woman Gal Gadot add that Superman fans will be very happy with Justice League!

 

All in! Well, almost #JusticeLeague

Hi Everyone! I've been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled "The Reign of the Superman", which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the "superman" character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics

"Justice League" has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.

Synopsis:

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.
