How Justice League Should Have Ended
Possibly our most anticipated episode next to the massive character juggernaut that undoubtedly will be Infinity War. Before Justice League was in theaters we had geared ourselves up to experience the final chapter in the Controversial Dark Snyder DC Trilogy, full of themes about responsibility, temptations of power, gods vs humans type stuff. It was going to be this awesome bow on the end of the Justice League hype train and we were gonna have our work cut out for us for sure. Then the film came out and it was just… meh. Like play it safe, change everything we’ve established Meh. So the question was… Well what do we do with this?! After a LOT of discussion. We decided to break the fourth wall in a sense and give our artistic expression of what the Justice League has become while also keeping true to keeping things HISHE. Enter the Mighty Martha. Since Justice League is the finale (pretending to be just the beginning) of this trilogy. We decided it was time for our easter egg threat that is Martha to finally enter the scene. DC’s greatest foe. A character that represents everything the DCU now has to put up with. A character who came from another universe and who is set on making sure the Justice League doesn’t have a place to stay. So where is the one place you can find the League with their guard down? The Super Cafe. It was not easy to make and took way longer than was intended. But I really enjoyed getting to open up our cafe in a direction we’ve never gone before. I hope you enjoy the episode!
Justice League is a 2017 American superhero film based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is the fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The film is directed by Zack Snyder, with a screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, from a story by Terrio and Snyder, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J. K. Simmons. In Justice League, the superhero team, consisting of Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg forms to honor the memory of Superman and to save Earth from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.
The film was announced in October 2014, with Snyder on board to direct and Terrio attached to write the script. Initially titled Justice League Part One, with a second part to follow in 2019, the second film was indefinitely delayed to accommodate a standalone Batman film with Affleck. Principal photography commenced in April 2016 and ended in October 2016. Snyder then hired Joss Whedon to write scenes that would be filmed during reshoots; however, Snyder left the project in May 2017 following the death of his daughter. Whedon was hired to oversee the remainder of post-production, including directing additional scenes written by himself. Snyder received sole director credit for the film, while Whedon received a screenwriting credit.
With an estimated production budget of $300 million, Justice League is one of the most expensive films ever made. It premiered in Beijing on October 26, 2017, and was released in the United States in 2D, 3D, and IMAX on November 17, 2017. The film underperformed at the box office, grossing just $657 million worldwide against its massive budget, making it the lowest of the DCEU . It received mixed reviews from critics; the action sequences, visual effects, and performances (particularly Gadot and Miller) were praised, while the plot, writing, pacing, villain, and overuse of CGI were criticized. The film’s tone was met with a polarized reception, with some appreciating the lighter tone compared to previous DC films, while others found it inconsistent
