Ok…. So at the end of the day, this is what I think I am calling SuperHero Movie Plot #3 (I should write up a post of “The Standard Superhero Movie Plots” next week):

It goes like this… “there is a horde that is an infinite army of faceless humanoid, but not human so we can kill them, creatures are invading from another realm(planet, dimension, the underworld) are spilling out onto earth through a giant hole in the sky. The horde is led by a SFX/CGI heavy villain who has ALL THE POWER and is set on remaking reality in his image and ruling the world… for reasons. No one hero can beat the horde by himself, so he must assemble a team! Team gets together and punches the horde to death while they work to find the McGuffin and “do the thing” to it. Doing the thing will close the hole in the sky, and suck the horde out of our reality. Lots of punch and killing until the team can get their hands on the McGuffin and work together to do the thing and close the hole. The world lives happily ever after.”

In this movie, the McGuffin is called “the Motherboxes” and “doing the thing” is separating them. The part of CGI Villain will be played by Steppenwolf. Other films with this plot include Avengers and Suicide Squad. It is notable for being the plot to literally EVERY Ghostbusters movie.
