Steppenwolf is such a bad villain. Ciaran Hinds’ voice has not an inch of menace and the CGI on him just looks as if the ‘Twilight’ lot had drawn a werewolf and didn’t remember to switch their laptop on. He’s worse than Cara Delevigne’s The Enchantress from ‘Suicide Squad’ (2016).
Thank f**k then for Gal Gadot, her hotpants and Wonder Woman. She gets to really kick ass in this movie - Snyder clearly has much more of a feminist agenda than Whedon considering the allegations currently coming out against the latter. If there’s one thing he’s improved this cut with it’s giving the female characters more screen time. Although it’s slightly disconcerting to see Amber Heard as Meera considering the allegations made against her by Johnny Depp. #JusticeforJohnny, anyone?
‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ is on Sky Cinema and Now TV now.
