The Top 10 Episodes Of ‘Justice League’
The early reactions to Wonder Woman are in, and everyone loves it! Twitter erupted with praise for the first-ever female led super hero film. This early praise bodes well for the future of the once murky DCEU. But if Wonder Woman is successful, it means that the next film in DC’s slate has even more work cut out for it. Justice League will be the ultimate test of whether the DCEU can truly handle an ensemble super hero cast.
It’s always difficult to juggle a couple of heroes on screen, let alone six or seven. Hopefully director Zack Snyder did his research in determining how to get the formula right. Assuming he did, he almost certainly watched Cartoon Network’s Justice League. As the final series in Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, Justice League brought together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern and Hawkgirl for the first time on screen. The series was bold, dramatic and inventive. It placed character first, often only focusing on only 3 or 4 heroes per episode in order to give them maximum character weight.
The formula worked amazingly, giving us some of the greatest storytelling ever seen in television animation. It also led to acclaimed spin-off Justice League Unlimited, which added dozens of heroes to the roster. The spin-off series was much more serialized, improving the storytelling but losing some of the great character focus. That’s why it’s the original Justice League series that provides the best example of how to tell a story with seven DC characters. It’s the example we hope Zack Snyder looked to for inspiration.
Before we look to the future of the Justice League, let’s have a look back at the past. These are the top 10 episodes of Justice League. Click next to get started!
