Justice League is the latest release into the DC Extended Universe. The movie was expected to do well at the box office but sales are projected to drop after opening week. Fans mixed reactions to the movie featured on Twitter during the period.
It has its share of problems for sure, but no more than the majority of superhero flicks. If you're a DC fan in general I really can't see you not enjoying it. #JusticeLeague
— Mark Cassidy (@RorMachine) November 15, 2017
I've had hangovers that were more enjoyable than #JusticeLeague. Irredeemably awful, folks.

France has won the opportunity to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup ahead of favourites South Africa. Ireland was forced to pull out from the bidding process after the first round of votes which left Ireland in third place. The decision caused a stir on Twitter.
Presume the €120 million allocated for #RWC2023 will now be diverted to housing crisis?

France: Euro 2016, RWC 2023, Olympics 2024. Seems Ireland stuck in tournament equivalent of “need experience to get a job, need a job to get experience” trap #RWC2023

If this game has proved anything, the Emirates is capable of an awesome atmosphere and Arsenal players are capable of being awesome off the ball.its all about the mentality on both sides #COYG

8. Mel Gibson
The Late Late Show interviewed Mel Gibson and asked him to weigh in on the sexual harassment scandals surfacing in the world today. With domestic abuse accusations in 2010, Gibson’s comments came as a surprise to some.
Imagine consulting Mel Gibson, who beat the living daylights out of his ex-wife, about what he thinks of Hollywood scandals concerning the mistreatment & assaults of vulnerable women? Shameful #latelate #LateLateShow https://t.co/dRmJKWQ7Cp
— Aaron Vallely (@Vallmeister) November 17, 2017
Instead of "Famous Longfordian" could we call Mel Gibson "Famous Racist/Xenophobe/Misogynist/Abuser", thanks #latelateshow

Ireland failed to secure a spot at the FIFA World Cup in Russia next summer after their loss to Denmark at the Aviva Stadium last week. Fans are devastated by the loss, but they found alternative ways to view the situation.
Couldn't afford to go to Russia anyway

And so every Credit Union, wife and girlfriend breathes a sigh of relief as Russia 2018 plans are shelved. #IREDEN
