10 years of ground-breaking cinema has built up to this moment. It’s the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date and by God does it deliver.

I usually like to write my reviews immediately after having seen a film, but with this one I felt as though I needed more time to digest what I had seen.

Justice League has officially wrapped its domestic run in cinemas, limping to the finish-line with a comparatively meager $229m in the domestic market and $428.9m overseas. For a film that had a budget of roughly $300m, and in an era where the  first Marvel crossover, The Avengers reached $1.518bn worldwide the box office for Justice League has to be considered a massive flop.
