The age of heroes came sixteen years ago with CW’s live-action Superman prequel “Smallville” and Cartoon Network’s “Justice League”. Now, the age of heroes has come once again in 2017: this time, on the big screen. First, there’s Gal Gadot as “Wonder Woman”, who’s about to step into the light with Batman (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in becoming the “Justice League”.
They may not be SuperFriends, but they’re superheroes who spent years alone: undercover in the darkness of the world, and no one knows that better than the Dark Knight Detective … and Wonder Woman. It’s not a wonder as to why the masked Caped Crusader and the Amazonian warrior princess make such a super-sexy superhero supercouple. And that is all the more reason as to why they’re the parents to this dysfunctional family, which includes one who can “talk to fish” and one’s who’s “fast”.
But “Justice League” isn’t dysfunctional nor disjointed as last spring’s somewhat modestly “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, Wonder Woman and her forming the trinity with Supes and Bats against Doomsday were a few of the film’s bright spots.
“JL” wastes no time in putting both this film and the team together on a mission to stop Steppenwolf in bringing about the end of the world … the end to all worlds. The film is as good as “Wonder Woman”: definitely delivering absolute justice as a fast-paced and exciting film with heroism, humor, hope, and heart.
“Justice League” isn’t the end of the DC Cinematic Universe but the beginning …. hopefully.
