    Justice League


    A Thanos type bad guy tries to collect infinity stones type boxes but a billionaire led super group stands in his way.

But let's not forget that this is a series that has already been through the ringer and has lay dormant on the big screen since the end of the prequels trilogy a decade ago, a trilogy that, to put it as…
