After Wonder Woman’s wonder-ful solo movie, we are back at it with Superman and Batman. Let’s find out whether things are finally looking up for the DCEU!
Steppenwolf and his Parademons want to take over the world. Batman teams up with Wonder Woman and some other colleagues but do they really stand a chance without Superman?
This is definitely worse than the solo Wonder Woman movie, but I now have hope for the DCEU.
Although Justice League is messy at times and I don’t really like the story, I did enjoy this one more than previous films. They seem to have learned from the negative feedback and at least attempted to fix a few of the problems.
First of all, Justice League features more humor and a slightly lighter tone than before. It doesn’t always hit the mark but all in all, that gets a thumbs up from me.
Although Henry Cavill is giving it his all, I just can’t get behind this superman. His story keeps on irritating me and lacks both depth and development.
We do, however, get an amazing addition to the cast. Ezra Miller joins as the Flash and, honestly, he can’t get his own movie soon enough. I loved his energy, his humor, his everything. He’s only been here for about 5 minutes and he’s already a strong contender for my DCEU favorite.
Gal Gadot was once more stunning as Wonder Woman. Her back has to be so sore from carrying the entire DCEU! Especially in comparison with Superman or Batman you see who well-rounded and developed her character is.
The other cast addition worth mentioning is, of course, Jason Momoa as Aquaman. I’m not yet sure what to do with that character but I’m intrigued.
As usual, the film is drowning in CGI effects and it really starts to get on my nerves. They somehow manage to produce an unbelievably expensive movie that at the same time looks weird and cheap at times.
Summing up, while the DCEU pretty much continues the line of awful films (with the exception of Wonder Woman), Justice League is better than its predecessors. While I didn’t like the movie per se, it did get me interested in the new cast additions.
