The Mandate: Episode 14 – Justice League

 

The Marvel vs. DC Comics war has been going on longer than I’ve been alive. Naturally, this battle would cross over into each property’s Cinematic Universe. After a million and a half movies, Marvel has proven their merit in the movie making business and are universally accepted as great. Sure, some movies are better than others but overall Marvel seems to know what they are doing. DC on the other hand, well, that’s a bit of a mess. With the exception of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, you have to go all the way back to 1992’s Batman Returns to find a DC film that is considered great. Now that DC has decided to have some sort of shared universe, they have continued their hit or miss streak entertaining but not great Man Of Steel, an epic mess in Batman vs. Superman, and the unwatchable Suicide Squad. It seemed they finally hit their stride with Wonder Woman, which was legitimately a great film and could go head to head with almost any of the solo Marvel films. Could DC finally have found the formula that worked or would they continue to mess it up in the very next film? Well, that is the purpose of this episode of The Mandate. I got with Mr. Anthony Serafino (aka Anthony 3), who has now become my “DC guy”, and we took the chance on DC’s first superhero get together in Justice League. Luckily for me, I had Anthony, who is well versed in the comic history of the Justice League and some of the bigger picture stuff that I was n’t aware of but does any of that mean a damn thing? Was the movie good? Well… you know the rules. Click play and find out. (Insert a villain laugh here)

I am John Wren; a Delco original, and thanks to a cartoon Chihuahua (surprisingly, not the small bird), most know me only by my last name. Although people think I it’s due to self-hatred, I do actually enjoy running in ridiculous races up and down mountains and have recently ventured into the world of triathlons. I used to sing for the Jersey based metalcore band Bottomfeeder (www.facebook.com/bottomfeederhxc) but am now bandless. I’m the worst Buddhist known to man and if I’m given the opportunity, I will ramble on about anything and everything at great lengths, with lots of profanity. I’ve read every Stephen King book, my favorite band of all time is White Zombie, and I will need to take a week of bereavement the day Bruce Campbell dies.
