    On the subject of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the Proverbial Great Comic Book Movie, and the Evils of Fascism


    Zack Snyder’s Justice League might just be the most hyped up movie ever made. After nearly half a decade of buzz and media buildup, the film arrives on HBOMAX to a milquetoast release.
