With the release of the new Justice League trailer comes comments from director Zack Snyder who spoke with USA Today.

Regarding Superman, who was noticeably absent from Justice League promotions and the Justice League trailer, Snyder didn't offer much.

“It’s hard to have a Justice League without Superman. That’s how I feel about it,” Snyder said "with a laugh."

Snyder continues with a tease about Superman in Justice League.

“It was always a super-intriguing concept to me to have this opportunity to have him make that sacrifice but also have him be this, in a weird sort of way, the why of Justice League: What do you do now with him? What does the team think? What does the world need?” Snyder said. “All that comes into play. It’s fun for us but it’ll be interesting for audiences what we do with him.”

On Batman:

“He’s been a loner for certainly his crime-fighting career, maybe with the exception of Robin,” Snyder offered. “When we meet him in BvS, he’s definitely at this low point of isolation. That was always our intention, that Justice League would be this continuation for Batman to evolve into a more complete hero.”

On Wonder Woman:

"[The Wonder Woman movie will] flesh out and realize (her island home) Themyscira and embrace canon with her and get all the elements to mash up that I love from the original stories,," Snyder said, who is also a producer on Wonder Woman. “But also we’ll see that dovetail into not only the why of BvS, but even now the why of Justice League and who she is finally realized. We know now where she comes from.”

On Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg:

“They’re each such awesome personalities in the movie,” Snyder said. “You have Jason stomping around as this inked hairy man, just this mythic figure. And you’ve got Ezra, who’s full of life and hilarious and all over the place and amazing — a really fun and also poignant Flash. And Ray’s story is in a lot of the ways the heart of the movie.”

"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.
