Ben Affleck excited for kids to see Justice League

Affleck will next appear as the Caped Crusader in "Justice League", hitting theaters this Friday.

"Justice League" is ruling this week's Fandango's ticket sales, with the superhero dream team garnering a super-strong 97 out of 100 Fanticipation movie buzz index points.

What should we expect from Superman in Justice League? Justice League is set to hit theaters this November and it's going to be massive. Let that sink in.

People were quick to question this apparent change, looking to the film's new male directer Zack Snyder and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.

"Feel uncomfortable? You should", the post continues. Women in films are four times more likely to be shown in sexy outfits and three times more likely to show some nudity. This isn't a new formula for comic books, films or TV shows. Instead it's the outfits of the Amazons of Themyscira.


"'Justice League' is lean, mean & packed with superhero thrills", says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. "Because I was just kind of making that up, I don't know". Hint: don't expose your vital organs.

To be clear, I have absolutely zero issues with showcasing the raw strength of these women's bodies. 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. My problem is a millennia-old military culture wearing bikinis into battle because they are women.

Much of the Internet's frustration stems from the idea that the costumes sported by the Amazons in Wonder Woman-painstakingly researched and created to be battle-ready and practical, highlighting their strong bodies without making them the entire focus of the ensemble-have been "updated" by a male director and a male costume designer. No, I thought he was great.

The positive reception of Wonder Woman was a major blow to Zack Snyder's vision and forced Warner Bros.to course correct their failing DC Cinematic Universe. Snyder initially then hired Joss Whedon to write scenes that would be during added additional photography. I hope that some of these changes include more of Hemming's complete armor design.
