Warner Bros. confirms Lex Luthor and a ‘Wonder Woman’ character for ‘Justice League’

Warner Bros. just sent out their 2017 movie preview press kit, and it includes a bit of new Justice League information. Or at the very least, official confirmation on some rumors.

For one, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will in fact be back. Eisenberg had said he would appear, but now it’s official in a Warner Bros. press release. Also appearing in Justice League will be Connie Nielsen, who plays Queen Hippolyta in Wonder Woman. That’s definitely new information!

The last thing worth noting… Justice League writer Chris Terrio has an executive producer credit. Justice League will be released in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on November 17, 2017.
