Justice League (2017)
Justice League Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed
In 2011, the company kicked things off with Man of Steel and now, at last, we’ve come to what fans hoped would be the crowning glory of the Dceu – Justice League, the movie in which the comic book titan’s greatest heroes unite against the threat of Steppenwolf. Unfortunately, it’s proving to be a bit of a disappointment critically, and commercially. Failing to crack even $100 million during its opening weekend, Marvel remains the clear box office frontrunner, but that wasn’t always the case.
DC’s heroes have been standing tall on the big screen since 1978, and as a result, the company has tried to ensure that Justice League pays homage to this rich cinematic history as much as it can. They’ve done this by carefully infusing the
In case you’ve missed all the behind the scenes upheaval, Zack Snyder had to hand the keys of the movie over to Joss Whedon due to a family tragedy, meaning the reshoots altered Justice League in some major ways. We’re told that only 15-20% of the final cut is Whedon’s, but we suspect this might be underselling it a bit. What exactly belongs to the Avengers director and what came from Snyder isn’t too hard to spot in the film itself, and while a report surfaced over the weekend detailing most of the scenes that had been removed, there’s still been no word on
Titled “Crisis on Earth-x,” the event airs next week and sees the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow collide when they have to face an invasion led by their Nazi doppelgangers from another Earth (Earth-x, to be exact). Previous promo images and posters have highlighted the league of heroes, but this new one-sheet puts the focus on the battle between good and evil.
Resembling the comic book-inspired art poster that announced the title of the crossover the other month, the image sets the Arrowverse heroes (Supergirl, Green Arrow, Flash, Atom, Wild Dog, White Canary, Mister Terrific and Vibe) against the Earth-x’ers (Overgirl, Dark Arrow, Blitzen). And, judging by the Nazi-esque banners on the skyscrapers in the background, it looks like this almighty battle is taking place on the latter’s plantet.
It was an unfortunate juxtaposition for the highly anticipated movie, as Hollywood grapples with an ever-widening sexual harassment scandal, but it’s not expected to hurt the film’s box office ahead of the critical Wednesday-Sunday holiday time frame.
“Coco” has already set a record for the highest grossing film ever to open in Mexico, with $48 million to date, and in the U.S., it could potentially beat “Justice League” and debut as the top film over the Thanksgiving weekend with about $60 million. Past Disney titles that have opened over the same period include

Sure, there’s the core premise that brings together a raft of costumed crusaders to confront a common enemy – not to mention Joss Whedon’s end-game contribution on Justice League, for which he received a writing credit alongside Chris Terrio (Star Wars: Episode IX) – but a new video essay pieced together by Screen Crush has identified all of the many parallels that exist between Justice League and Joss Whedon’s 2012 epic. And, well, there’s quite a few. Spoilers ahead!
Still with us? Let’s begin at the start: Justice League gets going in earnest when an otherworldly villain (Loki/Steppenwolf) wages war against Earth in order to retrieve a cube-shaped artifact (The Tesseract/Mother Box). It’s a threat that sends two characters – one male, one female – scrambling across

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too
Bad News: “Coco” will likely gross around $60 million-$65 million, which would rank as one of least-impressive Thanksgiving box office returns in years. To be a blockbuster, “Coco” would need a very strong multiple and an international performance better than most Pixar films.
At $65 million for five days, it would be the lowest (in adjusted numbers) top grosser for the holiday weekend since the barely remembered “Four Christmases” in 2008. It also would fall short of the top 25 for the date; top animated titles on that list include Disney’s non-Pixar “Frozen,” (over $100 million), “Moana” ($83 million), and the original “Toy Story” and “A Bug’s Life,” both of which opened to over $80 million.
