While the movie still doesn’t come out for over a year, the logo for Justice League has gotten an upgrade. We got our first look at the title treatment for director Zack Snyder’s follow-up film to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back in June, when we here at Collider shared a bevy of set visit coverage just a few days after returning from the London soundstage where Justice League is shooting. That logo was simple white against a black background, but now Warner Bros. has released a high-resolution version of what appears to be the official logo (at least for now) that adds some texture to the title treatment.
Snyder told us back in March that he was doodling Justice League logos himself, so it’s possible this design is based on some of Snyder’s own drawings. Or maybe it’s simply a placeholder logo that’ll be replaced by a newer, different version once Warner Bros. solidifies its marketing campaign for the superhero team-up film.
Indeed, while we got our first look at footage from Justice League in July, that wasn’t necessarily a “trailer” in the traditional sense, and Warner Bros. no doubt opted to unveil JL much earlier than originally intended in order to qualm fears that the film would suffer from many of the same complaints that plagued Batman v Superman.
By all accounts, the film certainly looks interesting, and simply by adding Ezra Miller’s Flash to the mix there’s destined to be more dynamism to the ensemble. The film finds Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman putting together a team of superheroes to fend off an extraterrestrial threat, Steppenwolf.
Again, we’re still a long ways from the marketing campaign for Justice League kicking into high gear, but for now it’s neat to fawn over what we’re given—like this new logo. Check it out below along with links to our bevy of set visit coverage where you’ll learn much more about the film. Jason Momoa, Ray Fischer, Willem Dafoe, J.K. Simmons, and Henry Cavill also star. Justice League opens in theaters November 17, 2017.

Here’s the official synopsis for Justice League:
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.
