So, how does the movie end??
Realising that Steppenwolf, the super bad guy with a terrible name, keeps on winning, Batman has the idea to resurrect Superman. They're unsure what he'll be like when he comes back - and sure enough he is moody with memory issues, and he turns on the heroes.
They bring out 'the secret weapon' of Lois Lane, who talks him down from the ledge, and slowly he starts to be less moody.
Meanwhile, Steppenwolf has his hands on the three 'mother' boxes and is in Russia, where decay is spreading from their power, and his minions are appearing everywhere.
The heroes have a loose plan - that Batman distracts the minions, while Cyborg does his best to pull the boxes apart. Instead, the heroes work together to lend Batman a hand, and then try to give Cyborg some time. It's not going so well ... until Superman shows up, beats up Steppenwolf, and destroys his axe. He's suddenly scared - his minions sense this and swarm on him, as they are taken back to another dimension with the boxes losing their power.
End scenes show the team getting back to their fairly boring daily routines. An end credit scene tells us that Lex Luther has escaped prison and wants to come up with his own team - the Legion of Doom. Sigh.
