Justice League

Superman is dead and winged creeps from Krypton are invading earth, so Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck, looking less hungover than in the preceding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) assembles a rapid-response team of superpowered combatants: Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and the Flash (an adenoidal Ezra Miller). Gadot, habitually dropping out of the sky into a crouch and fixing her opponents with a furious glare, continues to be the biggest asset of the DC Comics franchise; aside from her the movie is a clumsy steamer trunk of continuing story lines and returning stars (Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Jeremy Irons as Alfred the butler). The supervillain this time around is Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), who’s supposedly part coyote but looks more like a ram wearing a gold lamé jumpsuit. Zack Snyder directed.
