is also free of the philosophical depth and Rightist political themes of Nolan’s
Dark Knight Trilogy. Although the portrayal of Luthor as a shrimpy, neurotic,
fast-talking Jewboy who manipulates two hulking white superheroes into trying
to kill each other does have an archetypal quality that gives one pause.
After a strong opening week, sank like kryptonite. Let’s

hope it is the end of the franchise and Zack Snyder finds a better outlet for his
considerable talent. He’s actually talking about remaking , for
instance. (Snyder and Christopher Nolan would be among my top picks for a
proper adaptation as well.) Until then, he remains on artistic
probation.

JUSTICE LEAGUE


TREVOR LYNCH



Watchmen is the greatest superhero movie of all time,
44
and when it was

released, its director Zack Snyder was poised to follow Christopher Nolan into
the first rank of directors working today. But instead, he has directed an ever
worsening series of turkeys: Sucker Punch, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman,
and now Justice League, which is one of the worst movies I have ever seen:
derivative, dumb, and dull. An assault on the senses and an insult to the intellect.
It is also one of the most expensive movies ever made, costing an astonishing
$300 million. It is really rather amazing that a director of Snyder’s proven talent,
with a solid cast and a $300 million budget, could not have turned in a better
movie. Clearly, there’s a lot of rot and a lot of ruin still left in Hollywood, and
the sex scandals are just the beginning.
Justice League is a critical and commercial flop. Some people are trying to

deflect the blame onto Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon. It turns out that earlier
this year, Snyder’s 20-year-old Chinese adopted daughter, Autumn, committed
suicide. (Snyder had eight children, four natural and four adopted.) Snyder took
some time off to be with his family, and Warner Bros., which deemed the movie
too long and too dark, brought in Joss Whedon for rewrites and reshoots. The
problem, however, is not with Whedon’s superficial changes but with the basic
script, which is utterly derivative, and with the characterization, which is
laughably shallow.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. In remotest antiquity, a dark lord

from another world named Steppenwolf (hold your laughter) tried to conquer the
world with the aid of three magical “Mother Boxes” and an army of zombie-
cyborgs called parademons. However, the races of the earth—the Olympian
gods, Amazons, Atlanteans, and men—came together in an alliance to defeat
him. The Mother Boxes were wrested away from Steppenwolf, who vanished.
The Mother Boxes, which only worked in tandem, were then separated and
placed in the care of the Atlanteans, the Amazons, and the kings of men.
After untold thousands of years, however, the death of Superman somehow

reactivated the mother boxes, which called Steppenwolf back to earth. Of course,
this is a ridiculously arbitrary plot turn, since Superman was only a recent arrival
on earth, which raises the question of what kept the Mother Boxes “sleeping” for
