“Accept the things you cannot change, have the courage to change the things you can and have the wisdom to tell the difference.” The film starts of with a young Barry Allen chasing after cars on the motorway trying to hitch a ride after being stranded on a motorway. “So much irony here” I thought to myself. “I’m already in love with this film already”.
This world has never heard of Superman, Hal Jordan was never given a Green Lantern ring and Bruce Wayne was shot that night in Crime Valley. Barry Allenhas woken up in a world where he has lost his powers but has to race races time to put things right before Wonder Woman and Aquaman start World War 3!
Justice League: War is the first film to be based on DC’s New 52 Universe and. If you’re not a fan of the New 52; chances are you won’t like this either. This is the Justice League before they’re the Justice League. They don’t like one other and the world doesn’t like them. When multiple alien abductions occur around the world the likes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Cyborg and… Shazam! are forced to work together to face a greater threat!
This film was supposed to prove that, outside of Supes and Bats, other DC heroes were ready for the silver screen .
How many Marvel superheroes have had successful live-action films I ask you? Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Wolverine and the X-Men. Marvel have been making DC look silly. DC on the other hand have been ever-reliant on their two big guns: Superman and Batman.
In 2011 DC attempted to show the world that they do actually have more heroes under their belt and released a Green Lantern film. Only problem was that movie was bad. Not even a little bad but very bad. The movie barely made profit and was very painful to watch. So what exactly went wrong?
