The group made a brief appearance on stage with director Zack Snyder, who was the only one to address the audience.

Justice League is the culmination of a journey for me that’s been seven years,” Snyder said as he introduced a clip from the film. “I’m a huge fan of these characters and this a dream come true to have a chance to bring them all together in this single film.”

On Tuesday, Affleck’s longtime friend Matt Damon said the actor was doing “fantastic” following his time in treatment.

“He’s with the kids now, couldn’t be happier,” he said. “Jen’s working for a couple weeks in Atlanta, so he’s Mr. Mom-ing it right now. And that’s what he wants to be doing.”

Justice League hits theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
