The new and possibly final Justice League trailer is here. Can you tell whether they overhauled a substantial amount of the movie?

Last we heard, Justice League was still filming under the direction of Joss Whedon, who was called upon to handle reshoots and post-production when a family tragedy forced Zack Snyder to step away from the project.

With Snyder moving aside, rumors and speculation began to circulate: Would Whedon lighten the tone of the movie and get away from Snyder's grim-dark view of the DC Universe? (Remember, it's not officially the DC Extended Universe anymore.) Was he adding more Wonder Woman to the mix following the unprecedented success of her standalone film earlier this year? Was Green Lantern going to show up? Was Lex Luthor going to disappear from the movie entirely?

Let's see if the trailer answers any of these, shall we?

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as the Flash, along with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Amber Heard as Mera, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as Antiope, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and many more.

And if you're still hungry for more Justice League action, the film's Instagram has posted its own version of the trailer with new dialogue and footage:

The movie opens on Nov. 17, and hopefully production will be done by then as well. What's your takeaway from the trailer? Is Joss having a noticeable effect on the film?
