“Justice League” arrives in theaters aided by audiences hoping — nay, praying — that it meets the lowest possible expectations. After a change in directors and extensive reshoots, it wasn’t clear what would end up on screen. Would “Justice” be more like the reviled “Batman v Superman” or the critical and fan favorite “Wonder Woman”?
