While Ezra Miller stars as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aqua Man and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
Zack Snyder is back as the director of this film with Deborah Snyder as the producer. Joss Whedon who directed Avenger: Age of Ultron wrote the screenplay together with Chris Terrio. He also direct the reshoots for the film but made sure the theme is still Zack’s directing style. Zack Snyder still bring his signature theme of ‘dark film’.
Jason Momoa able to play the character Aqua Man nicely with his upcoming solo film released in 2018. While Ezra Miller abled to bring his funny character to this ‘dark’ superhero film. Ray Fisher played as Cyborg. Ben Affleck as Batman still give his charisma while Gal Gadot as usual nailed the whole film. Same as Gadot, Henry Cavill as Superman become one of the reason people went to watch the film.
This film is so much better than Zack’s previous Batman vs Superman. They took it slow in the beginning. Trying to introduce to the audience about the ‘new characters’ background stories. As a matter of fact, this film was made into two parts but instead they decided to turned it into one. Imagine how many scenes were cut off. The film take it slow by slow to the and surprised the audience in the end. With the twists no one saw it coming, this could be Zack’s best film second to 300.
Yes. Comparing to Marvel, DCU is so much darker but stronger in someways. With their stories brought in a fiction town like ‘Gotham,"The audience is brought to a different world. Anyway, who doesn’t love when your favorite superheroes gather and fight together?
