Justice League: 10 Dumb Plot Holes That Derailed The Film

How in Steppenwolf's name did the writers overlook these?

Warner Bros.

The long-awaited Justice League movie recently hit cinemas, and reactions have been anything but positive. The movie is sitting with a muted 41% rating over at Rotten Tomatoes, with most critics writing it off as a messy, incoherent, and ultimately boring piece of work that serves only to tarnish the DC Extended Universe name further.

The biggest problem with the Justice League, save for its washy performances, terrible pacing, and bad CGI, though, is its story (if you can even call it that).

There appears to have been no proper attempt made to tell an actual story at all. Instead, writers Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon conjured up some rubbish about mystical boxes and hoped audiences wouldn't notice it made zero sense because, look, all your "favourite" DC heroes have come together in one awesome film!

But really the plot of Justice League is riddled with errors, folks. It's a mindless hodgepodge of random scenes and lame coincidences, sprinkled with a load of plot holes. These plot holes not only serve to undermine the internal logic of the film, they outright prove the filmmakers involved gave little to no bother as to whether the story held up at even the most basic narrative levels. Unforgivable!
