5. The synopsis
The most important thing we want to know is: What is the film actually going to be about? Thankfully, we got our first synopsis of the movie this week, too.
“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 late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Excited? You should be.
The macguffin of the movie will apparently be the Mother Boxes. In the comics, these are powerful items from Darkseid’s home planet of Apokolips. The film will explain that several of them crashed to Earth centuries ago, worming their way into mythology and legend. We previously saw one involved in Cyborg’s creation in BvS.
