Toxicity in fandom isn’t limited to Star Wars. Every franchise has its trolls that people don’t like to talk about. Don’t feed them, don’t give them attention, and they’ll eventually go away. Unfortunately, even a bit of bad attention is enough for folks to thrive on. Fans are passionate, and when fans are passionate in equal but different ways, the fandom splits and near-war breaks out.

Lex Luthor, Starro, heck… .even Ultra-Humanite! The Justice League has a long list of dastardly villains and nefarious nemeses but the only one that has come close to defeating Earth’s greatest (DC Comics) heroes is a little bit of hair on Superman’s lip. Well, that’s what the internet wants you to believe at least.
Yes, I am sure by know you have heard the whole torrid tale of Henry Cavill‘s $25 million dollar mouth brow.

To recap, it was announced back in May that Justice League director Zack Snyder was stepping away from the film in order to take care of himself and his family after a personal tragedy. In his stead, Avengers filmmaker Joss Whedon was going to carry the ball down field to the end zone, but with the caveat that he was going to be handling some pre-planned reshoots that he was already preparing with Snyder before his departure.
