'Justice League' Is Best When It's Not Trying to Save the World

It seems like long before Justice League was due to storm theaters, the haters had already decided the fate of the $300 million budgeted epic. Chalk it up to a lack of faith in director Zack Snyder, perpetrator of such overblown cinematic downers as Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—even though Joss Whedon actually rushed in to finish Justice League after a family tragedy made Snyder step aside. Maybe the doubters have never entirely bought into Ben Affleck as Batman or Henry Cavill as Superman, and maybe they weren’t even bullish on the merits of Oscar-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio (Argo) or Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron). Or can the animosity simply be down to the silly, clannish rivalry between Marvel vs. DC fanatics?
