In 2013, the world was finally introduced to the start of the DC Cinematic Universe, as Zack Snyder brought Superman to the big screen once again with Man of Steel. This was followed by the appearances of Batman and Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, eventually leading to 2017’s Wonder Woman bringing us to where we are now. First directed by Snyder, who eventually would be replaced by Joss Whedon due to a personal tragedy, Justice League will finally see the famed superhero team brought to the big screen for the first time ever, as Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg join the team against the dangerous Steppenwolf!
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of meta human to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
The film features a stacked list of actors and characters. Starring as the members of the titular Justice League team are Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher, while supporting cast members include the likes of J.K. Simmons, Jeremy Irons, Connie Nielsen, Amber Heard, Ciaràn Hinds, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, and Billy Crudup.
Critical reaction to this movie has been decidedly mixed going into it’s Friday release. Though many critics agree that while the movie is a bit thin when it comes to the villain and overall plot, there is still plenty of fun to be had with the film debut of DC’s most famous team. Can Justice League bring faith back to the fans in hopes of a better future for the DC Cinematic Universe?
