Finally, it is time to watch Justice League for the first time on the big screen, the superhero team that emerged in 1960. The superhero league consists of Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
But DC Comics and Warner Bros have had different film productions that have ended up disappointing their followers, just remember the case of Suicide Squad among many others. It is for this main reason that everyone waits with eagerness and uncertainty for the first meeting of the most powerful superheroes.
The film puts us chronologically one year after the sacrifice made by Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Humanity has sunk into despair and seems to have completely lost faith, perceiving the absence of Superman as a proper judgment Bruce Wayne will change radically. Driven by a restored faith in humanity, and inspired by the selfless act of Man of Steel, Wayne reassesses its extreme methods and decides to recruit new allies with extraordinary abilities. It aims to create the League of Justice: a team of superheroes who defend the Earth.
A dilemma with this movie is the obligation to present to those who had not formally seen the light in this DC Comics movie world: Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg. This leads to a slow and apparently forced start. When Justice League on the mind people quickly resorts to great combats in an almost immediate way, But Warner Bros gave a general context of new characters to be clear from the start.
But once this presentation is over, the story begins to take the course expected by all: see the entire group fight shoulder to shoulder against the potential threat that represents the supervillain Steppenwolf, who is accompanied by an army of Parademonios to conquer the planet Earth. It is right here where the script written by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon takes its value, makes it clear that despite having the strength of Wonder Woman, the ability of the “King of the Seven Seas” or Batman’s mind strategist individuality are obsolete. And unification becomes so paramount that even coming back from death was never a bad idea.
A necessary aspect of this type of movies is undoubtedly its special effects, and this production has an outstanding one. From the first minute, they will show it; the main characters will have movements never seen before on the big screen. The effects used to represent the superhero ‘Flash’ is brilliant when highlighting trivial details such as the light, behavior, and sound of the rays emitted by his ability.
Having so many relevant characters and a cast equally famous director, Zack Snyder, knew how to balance between them and their respective personalities were not strange. But the relaxed and comical sense with which the also known “lightning man” was built stands out at different times, the work of Ezra Miller becomes the soul of the film.
Overall, Justice League ends up being a film that maintains a positive level when taking into account that the last production of the Warner – DC duo. The story takes its protagonists to such a limit that forces them to form such a group since the extinction of life can become a reality with their villain, this being not the strongest. The main essence of an apocalyptic situation saved by these superheroes is achieved, and the spectator will leave with a good taste after having seen the Justice League.
Keep in mind that there are two scenes post-credits, the second is really at the end of them, just have patience as it will lead to many interpretations and future productions.
