It can be quite difficult to find a happy medium in film or other kinds of visual art, for that matter. Something that satisfies both subject matter purists and the average joe looking for some entertainment. Case in point, “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” aka the “Snyder Cut.”
The critics ate Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” alive, but the fans reacted less harshly. Pleasing the latter wasn’t enough by the time “Justice League” was in the can, however. Instead, they had to settle for Joss Whedon’s interpretation. But now we have not only confirmation that Snyder’s original vision will see the light of day via HBO Max, but we got a clip to prove it.
The clip was released during a Spotlight on Zack Snyder Panel during Justice Con. Though the clip isn’t extensive or fully finished, it does feature one of the biggest differences between both cuts of “Justice League,” Superman coming back sporting his classic black-and-white suit.
Among the many extended scenes we’ll get to see in “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”, reports say that backstories for Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg will be given much more screen time. Highlights will reportedly include Flash and Cyborg testing out their powers and Aquaman probing deeper into the history of Atlantis. Fans will also get to see a more fleshed-out Superman at his best but also at his worst. Finally, all you action fiends will be pleased to know that the first invasion and final battle contain more gore and more lore.
Still, plenty of excitement will be had when Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) clash against Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) again and Darkseid (Ray Porter) for the first time.
“Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will be released on HBO Max in 2021. You can watch the clip below:
