It’s Batman Week, ladies and gents! Justice League is less than three weeks from its release, and considering Thor: Ragnarok is hitting this week in the U.S., it’s understandable that they’d save their big gun for this week of Justice League member spotlights.
Warner Bros. did a real quick one-two punch with this one, announcing that it’s Batman Week within minutes of a full Batman video released. You can check out the Batman promo above and the Batman Week announcement below:

Many fans may certainly take umbrage with this decisively different take on Batman. While Batman v Superman saw a familiar, antisocial Batman, this new Batman is more full of hope. In this film, Bruce Wayne is utterly changed by his experience with Superman, and has now turned leader.
This is in stark contrast to what fans are used to, with Batman often only begrudgingly joining the League. Batman is, by nature, something of a loner, and to see him take on this different personality will no doubt rub some fans the wrong way? But will it work in the context of the film? We certainly hope so, and from a narrative standpoint, based on this universe, it makes sense.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
