After what feels like an age, the highly anticipated team up of the Justice League has finally hit theatres. Plagued by a myriad of production problems after Batman V Superman received a critical kicking and didn't take in the amount of money that a tentpole blockbuster featuring the two most iconic superheroes in the world should have, the latest instalment in the DCEU has been considered a small step in the right direction for the fledgling cinematic universe.
Unfortunately though, the piecemeal nature of the sequel's production - with 20% of the film being made up of reshoots and the whole thing ordered to be under two-hours long - has left its mark on the finished product.
The blockbuster was always going to struggle under the weight of its narrative requirements, having to not only introduce three new superheroes, a main villain and tie the whole thing into the series' continuity, but the added production problems have resulted in a film that raises a lot of questions and probes a wealth of new ideas, but rarely answers or follows through on any of them.
Consequently, fans leaving the cinema are going to be contemplating a plethora of questions that the sequel leaves unanswered, and surprisingly the most pressing one isn't "what on Earth have they done to Henry Cavill's face?"
