Director: Zack Snyder

Superman died in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

So, continuing the action-heavy saga of DC Comics' (Definitely Commercial?) legion of comic book superheroes, director Snyder states, 'Just the idea of getting the Justice League together on the same playing field, taking their place on the cinematic landscape as a team and embarking on an amazing adventure - the mere concept of it was awe-inspiring', And, armed with Chris Terrio, and Joss Whedon's anything-and-everything-goes screenplay (story by Terri and Snyder) and award-worthy special effects and editing, Snyder delivers enough action and movie magic to satisfy most superhero devotees.

Monstrous, huge-horned intergalactic villain Steppenwolf (satanically voiced by Hinds), accompanied by hordes of demonic winged monsters have invaded Earth in search of a trio of magic energy-packed 'Motherboxes' which, used correctly, can destroy the planet, leaving Affleck and Gadot's Wonder Woman to recruit a band of DC superheroes (well, what else would you expect?) to save Mankind, the planet and probably the universe as well.
