Some people love it when their favorite TV or movie character is seen with another TV or movie character. It is usually fun when your favorite character has to deal with another character’s personality that is completely opposite of their own. Some notable examples of comic crossovers include The Avengers, the Arrowverse on CW, The Defenders on Netflix, and, the most recent example, Justice League.

The director of Justice League was the one and only Zack Snyder. Zack Snyder has made other movies including Man of Steel (2013), Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and 300 (2006). Justice League takes place in the United States a year after Batman V Superman. The movie started off on a dark night with a robber trying to escape a building; however, Batman (Ben Affleck) shows up just in time to save the day. While Batman is fighting the robber a mysterious alien shows up. Batman is eventually able to stop it and the alien left a clue that helped further the plot of the movie.

This movie was centered around some of the most well-known DC superheroes. In addition to Batman, the film includes Wonder Woman/Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), Cyborg/Victor Stone (Ray Fisher), Aquaman/Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), and the Flash/Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). Batman brought all of them together in different ways. While Wonder Woman and Batman met in Batman V Superman; the rest of them had not been introduced into the DC Entertainment Universe yet.

One scene that stuck out to me the most was a story. The main villain in the movie was Steppenwolf (Played by Ciarán Hinds of Game of Thrones) who wanted the Earth for his boss (who will remain nameless to not spoil the movie). The story explained that 5000 years ago Steppenwolf invaded Earth. So, the Amazonians, the Atlanteans, and humans, among other creatures joined together to defeat Steppenwolf and his army. During this battle, there seemed to be an alien with a green hue around them flying. One who has read DC comics could rightfully assume that said alien is a Green Lantern. It would make sense because of the hue and the ring.

I would consider this one of the best DC movies. It’s right up there with Wonder Woman. And if I was comparing it to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is as good as Thor, Iron Man, or The Incredible Hulk. I highly suggest seeing it if you’re interested in future movies from the DC universe.
