We got our first look at the first official teaser for the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Not too much is revealed other than Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) walking towards a mural of Darkseid. Now just who is Darkseid you ask? Well he was supposed to be the main villain the Snyder Cut of JL was building towards. Not Steppenwolf who we got in the Joss Whedon/WB version of JL.
A voice over is heard from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, the line from Batman v Superman where he said to Batman that the bell had been rung and the universe knows God (Superman) is dead. We then get the money shot of Darkseid and his Parademon forces attacking.
As details surfaced about the film’s troubled production and its state before Snyder stepped down, many fans expressed interest in an alternate cut more faithful to Snyder’s vision. Fans and members of the cast and crew petitioned for the release of this, which they nicknamed the Snyder Cut. At the time, industry insiders regarded the release as unlikely. However, Warner Bros. decided to move ahead with it in February 2020; the following May, Snyder announced that the original cut would be released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League via the streaming service HBO Max. The restoration will cost $20–30+ million to complete the visual effects, score, and editing.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is scheduled to be released in 2021 on HBO Max.
