What’s Hot This Week – Justice League


After years of Marvel superhero ensembles, we’re finally getting Justice League, DC’s flagship film. Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League is the fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe, and it’s coming to cinemas this week.

If you’re avoiding major spoilers, it’s a perfect time to start avoiding everything about the film, including this post. But if you really want to know, keep reading.

You’ve been warned.

The film is set months after the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Here, Bruce Wayne/Batman and Diana Prince/Wonder Woman are forming a team of metahumans. The rest of its members are namely:

  • Barry Allen/The Flash
  • Arthur Curry/Aquaman
  • Victor Stone/Cyborg

The team aims to fight Steppenwolf (the supervillain, not the band) and his army of Parademons, who are searching for the three Mother Boxes on Earth. Mother Boxes are sentient supercomputers with unknown powers, including teleportation and healing.

Fun fact: a mother box is responsible for Cyborg’s creation.
