This week, we take on the movie everyone seems to be talking about: ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, the four-hour behemoth currently streaming on HBO Max. Yes, we are aware this isn’t a summer film, but we covered the 2017 original, plus we are gluttons for punishment. So what did two guys who are the furthest thing from comic book fans think of Snyder’s ultimate version? Is this the one that finally won us over? Is Snyder a misunderstood genius? Does this film have a Nick Cave needle-drop? You may be surprised by a few of the answers. Co-host Luke sure does love a big epic soap opera, even when it is masquerading as a superhero flick.
On this week’s episode, we flip the SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER!?! formula on its head as we tackle a behemoth of a film that was tailor-made for mindless air-conditioned consumption but instead released just in time for the holidays–2017’s JUSTICE LEAGUE. We bring in the biggest comic book nerd we know to determine if DC has struck cinematic gold or simply disappointed audiences once more. Ben Affleck’s hair plugs, Jason Momoa’s pecs, Amy Adams’ self-respect–nothing is off the table as we serve up our own brand of…uh, justice. Spoiler alert: Someone gives this the highest rating in the history of our podcast. Also: SPOILER ALERT! THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FOR JUSTICE LEAGUE!!
