Review – Justice League (2017)

The anticipation of Detective Comics’, or D.C.’s, top tier of heroes coming together is something  that just isn’t felt by fans of the comics, but also anyone who has been following the development of this project. In 2013, Zack Synder was put in charge of directing the starting point for the D.C. universe, Man of Steel. That film was a success and was followed by the even more successful, but awful,  Suicide Squad. In the same year we were also given the match up comic book fans have been waiting for with the underwhelming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though it was Wonder Woman that acted as a gleam of light for the universe.  Anchored by an incredible performance by Gal Gadot, it became both a financial and critical success.

Ever since I was a child, I have been a fan of the DC characters. I have spent my life reading comics, watching the cartoons, collecting the figures and collectibles, going to conventions, seeing the movies, and I’m proud of all those things no matter how much society tells me I’m a geek.

As much as I love Marvel comics and movies, DC has a special place in my heart and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. In my opinion, Marvel has the better stories while DC has the better characters. Ever since the age of six, Superman and Batman have been my all time favorite comic book characters. Sometimes I even connect more to these characters than some actual people I’ve met in reality. I love these characters, and have loved seeing them come to the big and small screen.
