The road to Justice League, which brings together some of DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, has not been without its share of debate or controversy. Up until this summer’s crowd-pleasing Wonder Woman, the three previous entries in the DC Extended Universe (which include Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad) were hotly debated amongst both fans and critics for their movie’s storytelling decisions and character developments that showed DC Comics’ characters in different lights. While each of them was a box office success, it was apparent that it wasn’t enough to win over audiences. Fast forward to today and Justice League is viewed as a course correction for Warner Brothers’ DCEU going forward. While Justice League certainly has its issues and isn’t exactly coherent at times, each of the movie’s superhero characters are more than satisfying and help make the superhero team up an enjoyable action romp.
From director Zack Snyder (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Watchmen) comes the highly anticipated Justice League film which will assemble DC Comics’ greatest heroes. Starring Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Gal Gadot (Wonderwoman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Amber Heard (Queen Mera), Willem Dafoe (Vulko) and JK Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), the film is scheduled for theatrical release November 10, 2017.
