Batman’s spirit is enlightened after the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, when Superman paid the ultimate sacrifice to save mankind. When a more powerful threat looms over the survival of the human race once again, he and Wonder Woman set out to assemble a team of super humans to defeat a powerful enemy, Steppenwolf.
