'JUSTICE LEAGUE' Review
After the events of 'BATMAN v SUPERMAN: Dawn of Justice' and inspired by Superman's selfless act for humanity, Batman and Wonder Woman assemble a team of meta-humans consisting of the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg to face an inminent and catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.
• Far from perfect, but not a total disaster.
• Entertaining of course, it reminds a long episode of 'JUSTICE LEAGUE/Unlimited'.
• Cast play and fit in their roles fairly enough, though a little unbalanced at times as the film tone.
• Correct set pieces and well-done action sequences, sometimes affected by improvable CGI.
- Director Zack Snyder stated that 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' was always going to be totally different than 'BATMAN v SUPERMAN'. During the time Warner Bros. invited journalists and bloggers to visit the set, Zack Snyder also stated it was going to have a shorter runtime too.
- The line-up in this film is based on the founding members from the New 52 origin story (with the exception of Green Lantern). During the Silver Age origin story, Martian Manhunter was one of the founding members. He was replaced with Cyborg (who was previously known as a founding member of the New Teen Titans) in the New 52 version.
- The film was released on the same day the animated series 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' (2001) first aired sixteen years earlier.
- Joe Morton plays Dr. Silas Stone in this film and the father/creator of Cyborg, also starred in 'TERMINATOR 2: Judgment Day' as Dr. Miles Dyson. In both movies he uses futuristic technology that in turn lead to the creation of cyborgs with metal parts and red eyes: the Terminators themselves in 'Judgment Day', and Cyborg in 'JUSTICE LEAGUE'. #justiceleague #review #trivia #dcextendeduniverse #dceu #manofsteel #batmanvsupermandawnofjustice #suicidesquad #wonderwoman #dianaprince #batman #brucewayne #theflash #barryallen #aquaman #arthurcurry #cyborg #victorstone #superman #clarkkent #steppenwolf #parademons #motherbox #dccomics #new52 #zacksnyder #josswhedon #junkiexl #dannyelfman #warnerbrospictures
