The latest updates and spoilers for the live-action "Justice League" movie reveal two new clips featuring Gotham City's Police Commissioner Jim Gordon and the film's main antagonist, Steppenwolf. Batman and his team of heroic metahumans must investigate the location of the Paradaemons and stop their invasion of earth, as they need Gordon to help them.

Cast member Ezra Miller talks about director Zack Snyder's vision for the movie and how "Avengers" director Joss Whedon influenced the lighter tone of the story.

Commissioner Gordon and Steppenwolf

The first "Justice League" clip see Commissioner Gordon lighting up the Bat Signal on the GCPD rooftop as he waits for Batman to show up.

The Dark Knight arrives with Wonder Woman and The Flash as Gordon explains that eight scientists from S.T.A.R. Labs were abducted by flying monsters. Diana summarizes that they are Paradaemons and they captured them to find the locations of the Mother Boxes on earth.

Cyborg shows up on the meeting and tells the team that the Paradaemons have kidnapped the main head of S.T.A.R. Labs. Victor figured out the location of their based underneath Gotham Harbor. The team dispatch with The Flash being left out and comically exits the GCPD.

The second clip shows the Justice League fighting Steppenwolf and his army underneath Gotham Harbor. Cyborg hijacks Batman's Nightcrawler mech and fires missiles at the villain. Steppenwolf was unfazed by their efforts and throws a missile at a wall causing a flood.

As the team tries to escape, Aquaman shows up from the waves and stops the flood using his trident.

Darkseid tasked Steppenwolf to find and retrieve the three Mother Boxes on the planet after their ancient war [VIDEO] with the Amazons, Atlanteans, and the human soldiers. He will bring apocalypse on earth and the league must stop him before it happens.

The 'Whedon' effect

Ezra Miller shared his thoughts about Zack Snyder's vision for "Justice League" as he told Fox 5 DC that the "300" director envisioned the movie's tone to be just like Joss Whedon's take on the "Avengers" film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

"What's funny is that I think that Zack was doing a much lighter, more comedic, almost more Whedony thing, and the Joss stepped on and was fulfilling Zack's vision," Miller said. " It's an incredible instance of two artists in collaboration, and honoring each other's work."

Whedon took over the reshooting schedules for the movie after Snyder took a leave of absence for his family. The success of the movie will pave the way for more DC movies such as "Flashpoint," "The Batman," "Aquaman," "Shazam," and more.
