Everything we know about Zack Snyder’s Justice League
The answer to the golden question of fan famous Snyder Cut was revealed on May 20th, 2020 when the director himself Zack Snyder confirmed, at the end of Vero online fan screening of his 2013 DCEU debut movie, Man of Steel, that his version of Justice League aka Zack Snyder’s Justice League was not a myth. And that it will be making its way to HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s newly launched digital streaming service, and is expected to debut in 2021.
Steppen Wolf, the main villain in the Zack Snyder’s Justice League had a much more alien and a scarier look, as can be seen in the Batman v Superman ULTIMATE Edition.
Zack Snyder always mentioned that “Cyborg is the heart of the film”. Unfortunately, Whedon’s take on Justice League heavily butchered him by almost ripping out his story out of the movie, with the large scene of him as a football player, death of his mother and his father, Silas, who remains alive in TC, would die trying to defend the Mother box against Steppenwolf.
Appearance of a Green Lantern , as Zack said in early comments of VERO posts. His participation is unclear yet, but it seems that he will appear in the middle of the film, and possibly the lantern corps will appear waking up Bruce Wayne at BatCave, in the post-credit scene
MARTIAN MANHUNTER will appear and it will be revealed that he is General Swanwick, turning into Martha Kent to talk to Lois Lane, maybe he wants to know more about Clark Kent/Superman.
The Black Caped Superman is coming. All the scenes of Superman in the final battle, taking just a single frame, dodging him from the Steppenwolf’s punch in slow motion, are reshoots of Joss Whedon, and this has already been confirmed.
There will be more of Batman’s Knightmare sequence, which is when the Earth has turned into an almost another Apokolips in which Lois Lane was killed by Darkseid inside of the Bat Cave and Superman was controlled by the Anti-Life equation.
Darkseid will be featured in the film. The Ancient battle happened between young Uxas(Darkseid) and after the league defeating Steppenwolf, Darkseid is supposed to appear in front of the league in a boom tube. Darkseid’s scenes were completely removed in the 2017 screened version.
Wonder Woman is much more important, she is like the Mother of the league, who unites it. Also, she is the one who goes to the temple. At there she finds out about Darkseid and the ancient battle. She sees that painting of the same (revealed in photos posted by Zack at Vero).
Atom, Ryan Choi will make an entry. Not as the Atom but as a scientist who works with Cyborg’s father Silas at S.T.A.R Labs.
Flash will time travel to the past at the end of the movie. The league will be defeated when facing the Steppenwolf. Then Flash will go back in time. So they can somehow change the previous strategy to defeat him.
Snyder has a scene of the Flash in front of an explosion. And in the comments Snyder described it. According to him, it gets him through the Time. Iris West also supposed to be in the Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
There is a huge possibility that we may witness a fight scene between Batman and Deathstroke when he tries to break Lex out of Arkham Asylum. Also, Jerad Leto’s Joker may appear at some point.
Superman is the one who actually draws the attention of Steppenwolf and Darkseid to the Earth. Because when he dies, if you see it in the movie, he gives a scream. It seems that right after that another scream starts, as an echo, on top of the other. Zack himself, when he did the Live fan screening BvS, he said the following. That scream was heard in the universe, it was so strong and powerful. (and something more) Then was what awoke the Mother Boxes. It made them discover (Steppenwolf and Darkseid) that Superman was dead. And there are no more protectors on earth, like the dialog we see only in the trailer. Saying “No protectors here, no Lanterns, no Kryptonian” was Steppenwolf reporting to Dessad.
HBO Max hasn’t revealed the outcome yet. Whether its a 4 hours long directors cut movie or 6 episodes mini-series. One of the above will come to the streaming service. Yet still, it is a good thing that ultimately studios have listened to their fan voices. What do you think of Snyder Cut can deliver?
