The Zack Snyder's Justice League will be released in a few weeks on HBO Max, but the director continues to unveil his film in detail.
After months, if not years, of throwing out footage of his Justice League cut scenes on Vero, Zack Snyder is now struggling to correct this bad habit, even though he's now revealing too much of it since his director's cut is expected to be released on the HBO Max platform. Since the outcry caused by the 2017 cinema version supervised by Warner and Joss Whedon, the director and former architect of the DCEU has given so much information about his project that we know almost precisely what to expect four hours it will last.
And among all the things that will change from the previous version, there will be the bad guy Steppenwolf whose look has been completely redesigned. If last August Zack Snyder unveiled a new image of the villain that also appears in the trailer, he has more recently teased what looks at first glances like a new battle scene between him and the Atlanteans, which the studio probably considered too violent to keep it in editing.
As always, the screenshot is tiny and only serves as a hint of what lies ahead, as Martian Manhunter's image unveiled in November 2020. General Swanwick camped out by Harry Lennix in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could thus become a valuable ally of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg against Steppenwolf, as he will be the only villain the Justice League will really rub up against, before disappearing with the rest of the SnyderVerse, which has become a "narrative dead-end" according to Walter Hamada, the president of DC Films.
Zack Snyder also revealed that his Snyder Cut would eventually take the form of a four-hour film, rather than a four one-hour mini-series and that it is expected to be released on HBO Max in March. Warner Bros. is expected to confirm the date and unveil a new poster and even a new trailer.
