Zack Snyder Justice League has to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. Fans had been campaigning for it with the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on social media for months. This after the disappointment of the theatrical version of Justice League which we got in November 2017.
New Teaser Highlights The Potential Of Zack Snyder’s Justice League
The movement gathered even more steam when nearly the entire Justice League cast tweeted with the hashtag on the movie’s two-year anniversary.
Now, we have a brief teaser for it, which is coming to HBO Max sometime in 2021. Lex Luthor’s narration from Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which mentioned “a bell being rung”, plays over this teaser, as Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman carries a torch around what appears to be a museum.
She then comes across an ancient painting which very clearly depicts DC’s ultimate big bad – Darkseid. The teaser then cuts to a shot of Darkseid himself on a battlefield, with Apokoliptan ships landing behind him. Already, in 30 seconds, we can clearly tell that this is wildly different from the Justice League movie we got in theatres.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League Is Not A Sequel
Keep in mind, this isn’t a Justice League 2 or Justice League Part Two or anything of the sort. This is Zack Snyder’s version of the story that we got in 2017. However, following the unfortunate passing of his daughter, Snyder stepped away from the movie, and Avengers director Joss Whedon came on board to finish it.
Zack Snyder still got director credits for the 2017 version of Justice League. However, anyone who watched the trailers could tell that this was far from the story that Zack Snyder wanted to tell. So, what are the differences between Snyder’s version and the theatrical version?
We Could See Tons Of New Storylines In Zack Snyder’s Justice League
Some of them are pretty obvious from all the behind-the-scenes footage we’ve seen already. We’re likely to see Superman don his black suit at some point after he comes back from the dead. We may also see more of Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.
My money is also on Martian Manhunter finally getting his cameo. According to storyboards that Zack Snyder shared on Vero, this was going to happen. The storyboards showed Harry Lennix’s character of General Swanwick, who has been a part of this universe since Man Of Steel, reveal himself to be J’onn J’onzz himself.
Additionally, we may see even more of the Green Lantern Corps than we did in the theatrical version. It’s not clear whether Zack Snyder’s Justice League is going to be a long movie or a multi-episode mini-series. Whatever it is, we will find out more on August 22, 2020, during DC’s Fandome event.
