Justice League (PG-13)
The new film picks up where last year's Batman v Superman left off, with the world reeling from the death of Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman/Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) back to his brooding, swole, guilt-ridden self. We see a bank foreclosing on Martha Kent's house, while anti-immigrant thugs harass a hijab-wearing grocer. The despairing collapse of a post-Superman world, in other words, feels quite a bit like our own.
The good news is that there are superheroes still standing, and they're working together. Much of Justice League follows Bruce Wayne's and Wonder Woman/Diana Prince's attempts to assemble a team of heroes -- including manly, gruff loner Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa), wide-eyed and lightning fast uber-nerd Barry Allen/Flash (Ezra Miller), and constantly changing cybernetic teenager Victor Stone/Cyborg (Ray Fisher) -- in time to battle the ancient evil Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds), a Satanic figure who commands an army of winged, fear-seeking parademons, and … oh, who cares. What matters: The actors actually look like they're having fun.
