'Justice League' cast news, updates: Warner Bros. releases new teaser photo

(Facebook/justiceleagueofficial)"Justice League" will hit theaters on Nov. 10.

"Justice League" is still 10 months away, but the excitement has not waned. Warner Bros. recently released a high-resolution teaser photo of the team, sans Henry Cavill's Superman, looking ready for action.

The photo features Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, the Flash, and Aquaman all suited and geared up. The upcoming superhero ensemble film will see Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, assembling a team of metahumans with the help of Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. The Dark Knight and the Amazonian warrior princess will join forces to recruit the others in order to save the world after Superman's valiant sacrifice at the end of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Ben Affleck, who is set to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming film, recently appeared as a guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where the host showed off the photo. Kimmel commented on Batman's muscular physique, especially when compared to those standing next to him in the picture. 

"I make that look pretty good," Affleck joked. "It's not bad."

Kimmel then asked Affleck about another upcoming DC film, "The Batman." The actor is set to portray the vigilante again in the standalone movie, but he is also going to serve as its director. 

"I'm gonna direct the next 'Batman.' We're working on it," he said.

Affleck then explained that the pressure for "The Batman" is huge, and recounted his time writing "Live By Night," a movie currently showing in theaters. It took Affleck more than a year to produce "Live By Night," which he also stars in, and "nobody gave a s***." He then pointed out that things are different with "The Batman" because there is more anticipation for it.

Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, and Jason Mamoa are set to join Affleck and Cavill on the big screen when "Justice League" hits theaters later this year. Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and Connie Nielsen's Hippolyta are also expected to appear.

"Justice League" premieres on Nov. 10.
