If you were a movie fan before the year 2007, getting advanced tickets for a movie you wanted to see was relatively simple, although it required a distinct level of love for a movie or a franchise. For instance, after the first two films in the “Lord of the Rings” franchise garnered so much praise and adoration, seeing it the day it opened required only that you camped outside the movie theater for tickets.

One would show up many hours early to get a prime spot in line to be the first inside the theater and thus get the perfect seat.

Nowadays, with online ticketing and the ability to reserve seats, being a super-fan should be so much easier for the average person, emphasis on the word “should.”

E-Tickets can’t solve all your problems.

There is no denying that the ability to purchase movie tickets online is the very essence of convenience to the modern film geek, but that doesn’t mean that such an innovation presents its own set of unique issues.

In 2015, sites like Fandango and MovieTickets.com experienced an unprecedented volume of customers that ended up crashing their pages all in the name of nabbing tickets to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Recently, it seemed as if these companies had learned their lesson about the kinds of demands ticket buyers have with the rather clever virtual waiting line used for the upcomingStar Wars: The Last Jedi,” where visitors where would have a short window to purchase tickets and where placed in a sort of digital queue depending upon when they logged on to do so. But with “Justice League” tickets going on sale, sites seem to be underutilizing their own tricks and getting themselves unnecessary headaches.

DCEU fans are getting serious.

After lack of critical success in its first three extended universe films, DC Comics didn’t seem like it could ever measure up to the success of its counterpart, the superhero-machine Marvel. But with the arrival and massive box-office victory of “Wonder Woman” and the help of last-minute director and nerd god Joss Whedon, “Justice League” has put DC fans into a well-deserved and long-awaited frenzy of giddy excitement.

When tickets became available for pre-sale for Fandango on October 25, the volume of visitors looking to purchase their advance tickets lead to repeated crashing of the site.

With the enthusiasm of the fans readily apparent now, it is predicted that “Justice League” will follow in footsteps of “Wonder Woman” and become a huge monetary success itself. The film will follow heroes Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) as they recruit new allies Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to help them defeat a new evil in the wake of Superman’s (Henry Cavill) death.
