On this installment of the Big Picture Podcast, FilmBuffOnline Editor-in-Chief Rich Drees and FilmBuffOnline Contributing Editor Natasha Bogutzki are joined by FilmBuffOnline Comic Book Film Editor emeritus and all around bad boy Bill Gatevackes to discuss Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the director’s four-hour long reworking of the superhero team-up film he had to leave due to a family tragedy.
