With news of Willem Dafoe and Fast 8 co-star Kristofer Hivju confirmed for roles in Zack Snyder's upcoming Justice League, more details are beginning to roll out about what the director has in store. Much of this has to do with a change of pace from the grim and gloomier tone of its predecessor, Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice which faced a massive mix criticism partly founded on its shortcome box office results.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
