Given my previous review of Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman, I thought that it would only be fitting to pair the giant female superhero blockbuster with the people that inspired her.

Wonder Woman revolves around Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), the Princess of Themyscira, who lives on an isolated island away from mankind with Amazon warriors, all of whom are women.

Justice League has finally arrived and all everyone wants to know after the critical failures of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad is – is it good? Well I’m here to tell you it’s certainly better than the previously mentioned DCEU movies.

Justice League takes place after Superman’s death, where Batman needs to assemble a team of heroes after run ins with an insect like creature called parademons. The League which consists of famous heroes such as Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, along with Batman. Together they need to stop the villain, StepphenWolf, who is collecting power sources called Mother Boxes in order to conquer the world.

Justice League, which has certainly gone through a tough production process, is actually an enjoyable time at the theater. While its villain and plot are lacking, seeing these heroes together on the big screen makes up for that. Wonder Woman is the total standout here and deservedly so after the success of her film last June. The Flash (Ezra Miller) is also a scene stealer bringing light and comic relief to the team. And minor spoiler I guess, but if you follow these movies at all you should know this, but Superman returns from the dead and he makes a mighty fine, enjoyable entrance.
