DC Gives First Look at Justice League, Shows Little of Note (Has This Fanboy Exited None the Less)

Exactly 6 hours ago, this Facebook page has uploaded the following picture:

Warner has, via, verified this to be the real deal.
Here's a closer look at the group. I also tweaked the exposure values and colours a bit for better viewing:

You might notice that Green Lantern is missing. Fret not however, because this is not the complete group. How do I know? Because this picture...

...says 'Unite the SEVEN', not six. Meaning that there is still one person missing from the current line-up. I'm willig to bet my foot that Hal Jordan is that person. Hey, now that I've got that Jason Momoa picture up anyway, let's compare.

The painting makes him look fat, or stocky at least, and it doesn't really tell us anything we didn't already know. Apart maybe from the fact that this image seems to contain more of the classic Aquaman colour scheme. There isn't much green and orange to be found in the photograph but in this new image they're there. Kind of. We do have a full view of the non-trident (pentadent?) for the first time, so there's that.

On to Cyborg:

Who basically just looks exactly like Cyborg. Which is awesome, but it doesn't give me much to talk about. Although there is the lack of the red glow thing on his eye, what's up with that? I dunno, maybe it's just the low quality of the picture (whose bright idea was it to debut this picture on Facebook anyway?).

We're skipping the trinity in this analysis (yeah, I know I'm stretching by calling it that) because we've already seen them in much greater detail elsewhere. That leaves us with the Flash.

The chest emblem is all wrong. That's going to bug me the entire time if they don't fix it in time for the Justice League film. I can live with the fact that it only has one zig zag (even though two clearly looks better), the Bruce Timm design had that too. It can work. But the bolt is facing the wrong way! Why? WHY?! And there seems to be no circle underneath it at all! None! What the hell man?! What is the point of that?! Fix it, fix it, fix it!

It's hard to tell what the actor's exact body type is since part of it is obscured by Wonder Woman's shield, but it looks bulkier than its more slender comic book counterpart. The suit looks more like armor than just cloth and those things on the side of his head are nearly invisible.

So, to sum up the initial look at the Justice League, it looks cool enough overall, but the Flash needs work.
