Where have we seen the members of the Justice League before?

The movie event that the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has been leading towards since 2013 is finally here.  The first batch of DC superheroes are coming together in the wake of Superman’s death in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) to face an even graver threat against the world.

While the DCEU had a rocky start with the dour Man of Steel (2013), the uneven Suicide Squad  (2016) and the aforementioned Batman v. Superman, inclusion in the superhero franchise is still a feather in the cap for many of the actors involved.  For those of you wondering where you’ve seen these actors prior to Justice League, here’s a recap of some of their notable works:
