Posted 2017/11/16 3295 0

“Justice League” is Director Zack Snyder’s upcoming movie to be released on Nov. 17. It is based on the DC Comics team of superheroes. The movie was announced three years ago, October 2014, with Chris Terrio to write the script and Snyder to direct. It will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in IMAX, 3D and 2D. The film was initially announced part one with the second one to follow in 2019 but will be delayed because of Ben Affleck’s standalone Batman flick. The two “Justice League” films are standalone stories.
The movie takes place some months after the events of Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. With Superman’s sacrifice for the humans, Batman and Wonder Woman are inspired to assemble a team that consists of metahumans like Barry “The Flash” Allen, Arthur “Aquaman” Curry and Victor “Cyborg” Stone. They are to face the cataclysmic threat of Steppenwolf and his Parademon army, who are hunting for three Mother Boxes on planet Earth.
