A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN

Having already directed two hugely successful Marvel team-up features, Avengers assembler Joss Whedon was brought on board to rival comic book juggernaut DC’s comparison piece to oversee post-production after original helmer Zack Snyder left Justice League following a family tragedy.

SOCCER DAD SPIES

Gorgeous, sophisticated, funny, worldly, fit, wealthy and super-skilled, they are the envy of Maple Circle.
