Three years after “Justice League” played in theatres, director Zack Snyder has released the first trailer for the movie as he always intended it.
Earlier this year, Warner Bros. announced that Snyder — who had to step away from the project before it was completed due to a family tragedy — would at long last be able to complete his cut of the movie, henceforth to be known as “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”.
During Saturday’s DC FanDome event, special guests Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa questioned Snyder about exactly how different this version of the movie will be from what you saw back in 2017, which is also evident in the official trailer. Watch below.
With this “Justice League” confirmed to be 4 hours long, there will be plenty we haven’t seen included in the Snyder Cut. The film will be released in four separate one-house instalments. Set to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” the trailer highlights new footage of big bad Darkseid and Superman in an all-black suit, as well as previously-cut storylines for Kiersey Clemons‘ Iris West and Fisher’s Cyborg.
“The characters that I’m excited to fully flesh out? Of course it’s Cyborg. He’s the heart of the movie. He holds the team together in a lot of ways and I’m excited for fans to see how it’s realized,” said Snyder.
“You’re going to see something with Flash in this film that I don’t think you’ve ever seen before,” Snyder also teased. “He interacts with time and space, so you may see him do something timely.”
Miller’s Flash is said to have “a lot more emotional arc.”
What’s nowhere to be seen? Superman’s CGIed-out moustache.
“Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will stream on HBO Max in 2021.
