“Hereu0026#39;s what makes me hate big companies…and Iu0026#39;ll do a little dishing to make this a bit more interesting.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYes, this movie was made entirely to capitalize on the live action Superman feature hitting the theatres on the 26th. Which isnu0026#39;t exactly a bad thing except itu0026#39;s obvious that this movie was truly an afterthought.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDan Riba, the Godfather of the Justice League series is mysteriously absent from this production and man does it show. It seems as if Warner Brothers wanted to crank out a straight to DVD flick but Riba insisted that he needed more time to make the film coherent and best of all…good. Warner Brothers said, u0026quot;No Can Dou0026quot; and went ahead with production.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eUgh.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eEnter writer, Duane Capizzi. Before this movie he was writing ALF: The Animated Series, Jackie Chan Adventures, and that other travesty, The Batman. Itu0026#39;s clear that Capizzi has no interest or knowledge in following actual story lines and caricatures which is evidenced in his ridiculous portrayal of Lex Luthor. Why Lex Luthor is written like it was supposed to be cast by Gilbert Gottfried, Iu0026#39;ll never know.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThen there are the producers, Margaret M. Dean, Kyle Jolly, and Sander Schwartz whose previous credits involved Tom u0026amp; Jerry and Scooby Fu0026#39;n Doo.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMake no mistake, this is a horrible, horrible film that was made specifically for 5-10 year olds who probably donu0026#39;t care about story or plot. Donu0026#39;t hold any ill will towards The Justice League. Dan Riba had nothing to do with this garbage.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAvoid this film at all costs.”
