Seeing Batman and Wonder Woman come together to unite Aquaman, Cyborg, the Flash, and a resurrected Superman as the “Justice League” will have made even the biggest DCEU naysayer smile. Even if for just for a brief moment.
The reviews for “Justice League” suggest the common critical consensus is that the blockbuster isn’t quite as bad as the likes of “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” but well short of the quality of “Wonder Woman.” That’s far from my viewpoint, as I found “Justice League” to be flawed but still hugely entertaining.
What should be plainly obvious to everyone, though, regardless of whether or not you liked “Justice League,” is that it at least established a fresh foundation that the DCEU can now build off of.
There were many more reasons to be excited by “Justice League,” though. Of course there was the rollicking action and terrific interplay between its characters that made it so enjoyable, but the teases it made to the solo films for Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, and the future of the DCEU also chimed, too.
Even though plenty of critics aren’t behind the DCEU, the fact that its first four films have a combined gross of over $3 billion at the box office mean that audiences are still heavily invested in the franchise.
