(2021) (Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Superhero Action: Batman tries to assemble a team of superheroes to battle a powerful villain who's intent on destroying Earth.
Following the death of Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman (HENRY CAVILL), that's left his girlfriend, Lois Lane (AMY ADAMS), and mother, Martha (DIANE LANE), still buried in grief, the world feels like a far less safe place. That's something for which Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman (BEN AFFLECK), feels responsible, what with having previously battled the superhero, ultimately resulting in his demise. Sensing something bad is about to happen, Bruce decides he must assemble a group of fellow superheroes to save the day. But Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman (JASON MOMOA), wants no part of that although Wonder Woman (GAL GADOT), a.k.a. Diana Prince, is quickly onboard with him.
Batman's urgency increases when a powerful being known as Steppenwolf (CIARAN HINDS) arrives on Earth with flying, humanoid type creatures known as parademons as his army. He's intent on collecting three powerful "mother boxes" that have been long hidden away after his leader, Darkseid (voiced by RAY PORTER), unsuccessfully attempted to conquer Earth long ago. When brought together, those boxes will form the Unity which will ultimately destroy Earth and put Steppenwolf back in good graces with Darkseid.
With Wonder Woman and then Aquaman on board, the growing Justice League is joined by Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg (RAY FISHER), a part human-part machine being created by his father, Silas (JOE MORTON) to save his life, and Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash (EZRA MILLER), a hyper and naive young man who moves at ultra-high speeds. Together, they set out to stop Steppenwolf from creating the Unity from the "mother boxes" and destroying all of humankind.
