JUSTICE League is DC's attempt to crack the Extended Universe, and it's now available to watch on Netflix in the UK.
The film cleverly combines some of the comic book brand's most famous characters, played by some of Hollywood's finest.
What happens in Justice League?
In Justice League, the story picks up from the end of the last DC Extended Universe instalment in the timeline, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Bruce Wayne, who has just buried his foe-turned-friend Superman, decides to round up a group of superhumans with abilities to create a new order to protect the Earth.
After meeting Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), the duo set off to enlist the other members – The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman.
However, soon after they do, their abilities are needed by a new threat that threatens to destroy the planet and everyone on it.
Who is in the cast of Justice League?
Ben Affleck (Batman/Bruce Wayne)
Billionaire businessman Bruce Wayne has found a renewed love of his alter-ego Batman following the events of the last movie.
With his faith in what he does now restored, Batman will be the team leader for his group of superhumans.
This was the second time Ben Affleck starred as Bruce Wayne – the 47-year-old actor is best known for his roles in Hollywood movies such as Gone Girl, Good Will Hunting and Pearl Harbour.
Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman/Diana Prince)
Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippotlya and was the first child born on Paradise Island where the immortal Amazons live.
The Greek goddesses created the Amazons by placing the souls of women murdered by men on the island.
But Diana's soul was held back to become Hippotlya's unborn baby.
Gal Gadot is an Israeli actress and model best known for her role as Gisele Yashar in the Fast & Furious franchise.
The Wonder Woman standalone movie became one of the summer blockbusters of 2017.

Jason Momoa (Aquaman/Arthur Curry)
Before Justice League, Jason was known to most as Khaal Drogo in Game of Thrones, and Ronon Dex in Stargate.
Jason's character in the movie is a lot darker than the green and yellow spandex wearing character from the comic book.
Aquaman is the ruler of Atlantis, and while he comes from a human background, is able to telepathically control the fish in the ocean, as well as the sea itself.
Ezra Miller (The Flash/Barry Allen)
Ezra Miller became a much-loved actor in the indie film circuit thanks to several highly acclaimed roles including Kevin in dark drama We Need to Talk About Kevin, Patrick in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Daniel '8612' in the retelling of The Stanford Prison Experiment.
As the Flash, Barry Allen has been given the power of super-speed following a freak accident in a laboratory and uses his power for good.
A reclusive bookworm, he is recruited into the league by Bruce Wayne.
Ray Fisher (Victor Stone/Cyborg)
Justice League is the first appearance for the character – and was one of the first major screen outings of Ray Fisher on the silver screen.
The 32-year-old American actor started out in theatre starring as Muhammad Ali in Will Power's 2013 play Fetch Clay, Make Man.
Part man, part machine, Victor is a Cyborg – a high school student merged with a Mother Box when he was injured.
As a founding member of the Justice League the character is far stronger than the average person, can interface with computers, and emit various types of energy that make him a formidable fighter.
Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman)
Despite the fate of the iconic superhero seemingly being sealed at the end of Batman V Superman, the Kryptonian superhero makes a comeback for Justice League.
This was Henry Cavill's third outing as Superman following Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 and Man of Steel in 2013.
The 37-year-old actor began his career starring in film adaptations of The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) and I Capture the Castle (2003).
He later appeared in TV shows The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, Midsomer Murders and The Tudors, before heading to Hollywood.
Since then, the superhero has starred in The Man From UNCLE, Batman vs Superman and Mission Impossible 6: Fallout. His latest project is Netflix fantasy epic, The Witcher.
