Crooked Table Podcast: Episode 68 — ‘Justice League’: Triumph or Travesty?

In Episode 68 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. returns to the DC Extended Universe once more for Justice League, the culmination that brings together some of the biggest heroes from DC Comics. Following the success of Wonder Woman and the divisiveness of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, can director Zack Snyder’s latest superheroic epic overcome production issues and problematic facial hair (?) to emerge as the DC equivalent of the Avengers phenomenon? Listen up as we go “all in” on Justice League.

Synopsis for Justice League, courtesy of Warner Bros.:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) — it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

We’re excited to hear your feedback as the Crooked Table Podcast continues to evolve. As usual, the show does feature explicit language and, as such, is best considered NSFW.

Thanks for listening!
