Folks, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is finally upon us. The four-hour opus of a director’s cut contains just about everything Snyder decided to put in front of the camera for the 2017 film, and while the end result is predictably self-indulgent, it’s also more cohesive than many of us expected. In addition to fleshing out some characters that were barely there in the theatrical version, ZSJL tosses in the biggest bad in all of DC Comics – Darkseid (Ray Porter), an intergalactic despot obsessed with discovering the Anti-Life Equation and using it to conquer the universe. The movie constantly reminds us that we should be so terrified of Darkseid that we fill our trousers every time we so much as hear his name, and it’s not hard to see why. My man is nigh-invulnerable, he’s got glamour muscles and a fitted tank top, and he slices his enemies apart with zig-zagging laser eyes. But the movie makes a huge mistake in Darkseid’s introductory scene that instantly reduces him to a non-threat in the eyes of the audience. That mistake was letting him anywhere near Yoked David Thewlis.
