Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to fight this newly awakened threat. 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.
The “Snyder Cut” arrives on HBO Max in 2021.
