The superhero ensemble is featured in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, and included in the coverage is another new still. This image features the team – minus Superman and Aquaman – standing side by side, looking at…something/someone.
Of course, Superman died at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. So while his resurrection has been confirmed for Justice League, details on his exact role have been under wraps. We saw him in the first group photo, but he never popped up in the Comic-Con reel.

For more on Justice League, pick up the new issue of Empire Magazine later this week.
