  • At one point, Warner Bros. considered making this film in performance-capture animation.
  • Marit Allen was originally hired as costume designer, but she died in November 2007.
  • In September 2007, George Miller had signed on to direct, but by 2010, he finally left the project.
  • In October 2007, George Miller had cast the Justice League completely, with D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, model Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, rapper Common as Green Lantern/John Stewart, Adam Brody as the Flash/Barry Allen, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman/Arthur Curry, Hugh Keays-Byrne as the Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz), Tereasa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord.

  • When Gal Gadot was asked by a reporter about how she would get Wonder Woman's breasts from the comics, she answered, "Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I'd really go 'by the book,' it'd be problematic." Gadot practiced Kung Fu, Kick Boxing, sword fight, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Capoeira as part of her physical preparation for the role.
  • Chris Terrio finished writing the screenplay as of July 2015.
  • Pre-production of this film started in January 2016.

  • Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski were, at one point, considered to direct this film.
  • This film marked the second time J.K. Simmons and Willem Dafoe appeared in the same comic book franchise, after Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy (2002-2007).

  • This movie brings together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg. Mera shows up in the film, but is not on the team.
  • As an April Fool's Day joke, production said Zack Snyder had left the project and that George Miller would be taken up the directing duties. The feedback was quite positive. However, when Joss Whedon replaced Snyder due to the death of Snyder's daughter, feedback was sincerely sympathetic.
  • The first official footage for this film was shown at San Diego Comic Con on July 23, 2016.
  • This was Zack Snyder's first film shot in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. This was chosen because Snyder had a great experience with filming the IMAX sections of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and he "sort of fell in love with [the] giant, less rectangular aspect ratio" of 1.85:1 as opposed to the 2.39:1 aspect ratio used in his previous films.
  • This film was released on the 25th anniversary of The Death of Superman comic, which was released November 17, 1992; and the 16th anniversary of Justice League (2001) which premiered its first episode November 17, 2001.

  • This movie was initially going to be split into two parts: Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, with an alleged singular continuing story line. But by the time filming was under way, the idea of the film being in two parts seemed to have quietly gone away. It is now rumored to be two self-contained movies with two related but separate plots.
  • Laurence Fishburne was asked to reprise his role as Perry White for a cameo, but scheduling conflicts with other projects made him unavailable on the day filming was supposed to take place.
  • Billy Crudup plays Barry Allen's (The Flash) father Henry in this film. However, before appearing in the DC Universe, Crudup initially auditioned for and was a top contender for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman Begins (2005) before Christian Bale was cast. Crudup also portrayed a DC Comics superhero (Dr. Manhattan) in the film "Watchmen."
  • Willem Dafoe and Diane Lane previously appeared in Streets of Fire (1984).
  • Director Zack Snyder and his wife producer Deborah Snyder stepped down from finishing the film, after the suicide of Zack Snyder's daughter in March 2017. They tried to remain on the film as a way to work through the difficulty, but decided after two months to step away from the project to spend time with their family. Joss Whedon, who had signed on for Batgirl, took over as director, managing additional scenes that need to be included in the final cut. Warner Brothers have stated that Joss would direct and write in the same style as Zack so there won't be any tonal shifts or obvious changes in style. However, Joss Whedon controversially fired Zack Snyder's composer Junkie XL, and replaced him with Danny Elfman.
  • This is Danny Elfman's twelfth time scoring a superhero film, after working on Tim Burton's Batman films, Barry Sonnenfeld's "Men in Black" films, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films, Hulk (2003), Wanted (2008), Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • Ciar?n Hinds portrays Steppenwolf in performance-capture. Hinds was unfamiliar with using the technology and got advice from his friend Liam Neeson, who had earlier done performance-capture acting in A Monster Calls (2016).
  • This is the third comic-book film saga for Ciar?n Hinds, after Road to Perdition (2002) and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011).
  • Danny Elfman took over from Junkie XL, who originally replaced Hans Zimmer. Zimmer had announced his retirement from the "superhero business" and left to work on Tomb Raider (2018).
  • The line-up in this film is based on the founding members from the New 52 origin story (with the exception of Green Lantern). During the Silver Age origin story, Martian Manhunter was one of the founding members. He was replaced with Cyborg (who was previously known as a founding member of the New Teen Titans) in the New 52 version.
  • Joss Whedon took over for Zack Snyder, as Snyder left the project for reasons pertaining to his family. Whedon's changes included replacing Junkie XL with Danny Elfman as composer. Whedon and Elfman previously collaborated on Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
  • Willem Dafoe previously appeared in American Psycho (2000), opposite former Batman Christian Bale and current Joker Jared Leto.
  • Ben Affleck and Willem Dafoe have both appeared in the Jack Ryan film series. Dafoe was in Clear and Present Danger (1994) while Affleck was in The Sum of All Fears (2002).
  • The second time Ezra Miller and Billy Crudup have worked together. The first was The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015).
  • Extensive reshoots in London and Los Angeles in mid-2017 added a cost of approximately $25 million to the film's budget. Henry Cavill worked on the reshoots and Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) at the same time. He had to sport a mustache for his role in the latter project, however Paramount refused to let the actor shave it off for the time he played Superman again. This meant that Cavill's facial hair had to be digitally removed in post-production.
  • Michael McElhatton and Ciar?n Hinds have both starred in Game of Thrones (2011) and films about the King Arthur legend: Ciaran Hinds in Excalibur (1981) and Michael McElhatton in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017).
  • Ben Affleck's third time playing Batman/Bruce Wayne (following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Suicide Squad (2016)).
  • Ezra Miller is the youngest cast member of this film.
  • Both Jesse Eisenberg and Kiersey Clemons were set to appear as Lex Luthor and Iris West but their scenes were apparently cut.
  • Wonder Woman first appears in the film standing atop a statue of a goddess. This is the Greek goddess Themis, or Justitia to the Romans, better known in modern society as Lady Justice.
  • In addition to Danny Elfman bringing back the original 1978 Superman score/theme, Elfman also brought back the score/theme for Affleck's scene(s) as The Batman from the 1989 film Batman. It's unknown whether or not Matt Reeves plans to continue to use the famous Batman 1989 theme/score for his upcoming "film noir" style The Batman Trilogy.
  • As seen in many clips from the recent Justice League trailers, many of the scenes show the sky being illuminated in a Red hue. This is interesting seeing as a Red Sky is a sign of a post "Flashpoint" timeline in many of the aftermath stories in the comics. This includes post-Flashpoint Paradox comics like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, where a butterfly-like effect occurs changing the past creating an alternate 'present' & this of course includes The Flash comics. A "Flashpoint" storyline has been announced as the movie for "The Flash" by DC/Warner Bros. - taking place of what was originally planned to be a semi-traditional origin story for Barry Allen becoming "The Flash." Ezra Miller is set to star as well as appearances by Cyborg, Henry Allen, & Iris West. The actors appear to be the same as set up in the previous Snyderverse films.
  • The members of the Trinity (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman) have appeared in 2 movies each before Justice League. Apart from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) which had them together in a live action movie for the first time, Superman was in Man of Steel (2013), Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman (2017), and Batman in Suicide Squad (2016) (cameo).

  • This is Billy Crudup's second comic book character, he previously played Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen.
  • This is the 5th film in the DCEU. #1 Man of Steel (2013), #2 Dawn of Justice (2016), #3 Suicide Squad (2016), #4 Wonder Woman (2017).
  • The scene in which Barry Allen/The Flash is grumbling that Bruce Wayne/Batman is sitting in his second favorite chair is an inside joke about "Sheldon's Spot" from The Big Bang Theory (2007). Sheldon is a big fan of The Flash and Cisco Ramon, ally and friend of The Flash also wears t-shirts with Sheldon's quotes in TV series The Flash (2014).
  • Ben Affleck stated the scene where he exposes himself to Alfred was coined on Joss Weadon's First day of production.
  • Billy Crudup also starred in Watchmen (2009), based on the DC Comics graphic novel of the same name. Crudup portrays Dr. Manhattan, the most powerful being in existence. Watchmen was also directed by Zack Snyder and while the story took place in a parallel universe to the main DC universe, it appears the current DC comic book Rebirth line of comics combined the Watchmen universe with the current DC main universe.
  • Danny Elfman confirmed that he would be using the Batman theme music from Batman (1989) in the film, and would also use briefly John Williams' Superman theme during "a dark, twisted moment" in the film. Gary Clark Jr. and The White Stripes have also been featured in the Justice League album.
  • Barry Allen says he knows sign language, specifically gorilla sign language. One of the Flash's most famous enemies is Grodd, an intelligent telepathic gorilla.
  • One of the Gotham scenes during the prologue has a building with "Janus" written on it. This refers to Janus Cosmetics, run by Batman's enemy the crime boss Black Mask. Black Mask is set to appear in Gotham City Sirens.
  • Joe Morton portrays Silas Stone, a character that shares one striking similarity with Miles Dyson, Morton's character from Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). In Terminator 2, Dyson is to blame for Judgement Day based on his influence in Terminator development. In Justice League (2017), Stone is responsible for recreating his son into a cybernetic organism. Both of Morton's characters created pivotal androids, it just happened 26 years apart.
  • The superheroes are never actually referred to as "The Justice League" in the movie.
  • Bruce Wayne is said to have been operating as Batman for twenty years when the movie takes place. It matches with the 20th anniversary of Batman & Robin (1997).
  • Ciar?n Hinds is the third actor from the Harry Potter franchise to join the DCEU, following David Thewlis (Ares) and Ezra Miller (Barry Allen/Flash). Gary Oldman was another actor to have starred in a DC, as Jim Gordon in the Dark Knight trilogy, but the movies were set in a different universe.
  • In earlier drafts of the script, Victor Stone was supposed to have suffered his severe injuries as a result of Doomsday's rampage through Metropolis in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
  • Joe Morton who plays Silas Stone in this film and the father/ creator of Cyborg, also starred in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). In both movies he uses futuristic technology that in turn lead to the creation of cyborgs with metal parts and red eyes: the Terminators themselves in Judgement Day, and Cyborg his son in Justice League.
  • Danny Elfman used a little of his own Batman (1989) score with some key Batman scenes.
  • Danny Elfman also composed the theme tune for The Flash (1990).
  • Ben Affleck (Batman) and Ciáran Hinds (Steppenwolf) have previously appeared together in The Sum of All Fears (2002).
  • Henry Cavill's Superman hairstyle got changed from the previous movies. In this movie Henry parts his hair on the left, which is supposedly perceived as masculine and assertive. In his previous movies both Kal-El, Clark Kent had right partitions which was quite opposite of the comic book version.
  • In one scene, Alfred (Jeremy Irons) says to Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), "One misses the days when one's biggest concerns were exploding wind-up penguins." This is a reference to Batman Returns (1992), where Batman (Michael Keaton) goes up against Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the Penguin (Danny DeVito) who had an army of penguins wearing exploding rockets with a plot to destroy Gotham City. The composer of Justice League, Danny Elfman, also composed the original Batman (1989) & Batman Returns (1992) musical scores and he utilizes parts of them in this film.
  • Two scenes show Flash and Superman moving quickly neck and neck which is a nod to the classic argument of which hero is faster. However, in Flash Rebirth #3, a resurrected Barry Allen and Superman do a foot race. While Superman is able to stay alongside Flash and even brags about beating him in previous races, Flash finally admits those races were for charity and blasts past Superman, leaving him with a shocked look.
  • Joe Manganiello portrays his second comic book character after starring as Flash Thompson in Spider-Man (2002).
  • When the film got shown in Iceland (which uses subtitles rather than dub for films with non-Icelandic languages), Jason Momoa's pronunciation of his single line of Icelandic was deemed so unintelligible that it had to be subtitled into Icelandic (often resulting in a big laugh by the audience).
  • When the three DC main heroes (Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman) make their first public appearance in the film, a part of their theme music from their respective films (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Batman (1989), and Superman (1978)) plays.
  • Holt McCallany, who plays the burglar in the first scene with Batman, said the scene was written and shot by Joss Whedon as comedic, but Warner Bros. preferred to open the film with a more serious tone, and the scene was re-edited. When McCallany returned home to New York, he found a bottle of his favorite champagne at his door and a note from Whedon that said, 'To battles lost. Gratefully, Joss.' McCallany appreciated Whedon's gesture and had the letter framed.
  • When Arthur Curry (Aquaman) is facing the oncoming ocean wave as he stands at the end of the pier, the bottom of the shot shows the outline of his boots jutting out from his legs. The appearance suggests a tribute to the comic book Aquaman who has fins on his costume that jut out from his calves.
  • Zack Snyder and Ray Fisher both stated that Cyborg was going to be the heart of this film. However, when Joss Whedon was hired for reshoots, most of Cyborg's scenes were cut.
  • In an ancient battle scene in between Steppenwolf and ancient Superheroes an Archer is seen. He's probably 'The Rama' (or 'Ram'), a famous Indian God. Rama is also a Superhero of 'Hindu Gods' origin in DC Comics Universe. Once upon a time he was a fellow-warrior to Wonder Woman. Other notable Indian Gods in DC Comics are Vishnu, Shiva, Kali, Ganesha, Hanuman etc.
  • During his audition Doctor Who (2005) actor Sam Benjamin completely improvised a monologue about his character having a heartbreaking experience dating a woman from Metropolis. Although he was cast, his role did not feature in the theatrical cut.
  • South Korean singing group Black Pink's music video "As If It's Your Last" can be seen playing in the background behind Bruce Wayne in Barry Allen's place in the USA & South Korean releases of the film.
  • At one point a newspaper cover story announces that certain beings have returned to their alien worlds. Two of them are David Bowie and Prince, both of whom died and who were considered eccentric icons of world culture.
  • When the flash is pushing the truck to safety in the final fight scene the 2 kids in the back of the truck are wearing the same color clothes as quicksilver and scarlet witch from Marvel
  • When Batman first sends Alfred footage of the creature for analysis you can see aircrack-ng, a real world software for wireless analysis, running on his top right screen.
  • The composer of Justice League, Danny Elfman, also composed the original Batman (1989) & Batman Returns (1992) musical scores and he utilizes parts of them in this film. While Elfman was not involved in the earlier Superman films, he did incorporate bits of the theme from those movies,
  • When Barry / Flash first meets Bruce he refers to himself as being Jewish. Later, when Aquaman warns Flash not to tell anyone about his sharing of personal information, he tells him he will make him eat prawns (shrimp). Prawns are not kosher.
  • In an interview, Jason Momoa stated that his intention was to make Aquaman a badass. When the team is discussing how to revive Superman, Aquaman is standing behind a work table. When no one is looking, he steals a screwdriver.
  • The sky in this movie appears to be blue most of the time, but for a short period it's red.
  • After saving a family, Flash waves goodbye and says "Dostoevsky!" Fyodor Dostoevsky was a Russian novelist, famous for novels including Crime and Punishment. The Flash most likely meant to say "do svidaniya," which means goodbye or farewell.
  • The 'For Sale' sign on the Kent Farm property uses a 785-area code. In real life, this phone number would be located in rural, central Kansas. Possibly near Topeka or Manhattan, KS.
  • At the end of the film, Barry gets a job "in a crime lab". In the comics, he was working as a police scientist for the Central City Police Department Scientific Detection Bureau, where he gets involved in the accident that gives him superpowers.
  • Wonder Woman calls Superman "The Last Son of Krypton", one of his most known nicknames (the most popular being The Man of Steel).
  • The weapon that Aquaman acquires is not actually a trident (meaning "3-toothed") as it may be commonly called. A true trident has only 3 points, as opposed to the 5-pointed "pitchfork" (as Batman jokingly calls it) seen in the film. In interviews, Jason Momoa calls it a "quindent" ("5-toothed"). It is also not meant to be the actual trident carried by the character in the various comic series, however it does have magical properties of its own (penetrative power, the ability to hold back advancing water, etc). A future story line may entail Aquaman acquiring the actual trident which had belonged to the sea god Poseidon and which gives the carrier the title of Protector of the Seas.
  • Wonder Woman's hair changes from scene to scene, as does her attire when no one has had a chance to change themselves and never leaving each other presence.
  • Batman never takes off his cowl in any other of the movies nor in any of the animated versions of the league.
  • The mother box strikes a similar resemblance to the tesseract, the alien power source from the MCU movies
  • Russian censors replaced Russian with Poland in the movie dub. This is not the first censored Batman movie, russian letters on misssile in Batman v Superman was digitally erased.

  • In 2011, Will Beall wrote a script for a Justice League movie in which Darkseid is the villain, Batman and Wonder Woman have a child, and Barry Allen travels back in time to warn of Darkseid's invasion and dies in his younger self's arms. Coincidentally, Ben Affleck was considered to direct.
  • As in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), there are hints of a romantic attraction between Batman/Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Thus, Gal Gadot is arguably the first woman to reprise a role as Batman's love interest on the big screen.
  • The Justice League of America first appears in "The Brave and the Bold" #28 (1960).
  • "The Brave and the Bold" #28 was a game-changing issue that revolutionized the DC Comics universe.
  • The Justice League of America is the brainchild of Julius Schwartz, one of the comics industry's most influential editors and a key proponent of science fiction.

  • The first artists to draw the series were Mike Sekowsky and Bernard Sachs.
