Teases The Legend Of Darkseid
Zack Snyder took to his Twitter account to release the Justice League: The Snyder Cut teaser trailer, and we now have our first official footage!
Headed to HBO Max, The Snyder Cut will reveal the director’s vision for this crossover movie featuring Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), which was radically altered when Joss Whedon took charge of the project.
Here’s the teaser –

The new cut is expected to arrive in 2021, with Snyder currently reuniting crew to complete special effects, grading and sound work, which could still be a long process due to the pandemic.
One popular rumour floating around it that the film will either be a lengthy four-hour cut or split up into a multi-part miniseries.
Snyder was forced to bail from directing duties on the Justice League due to a family tragedy, with Warner Bros. hiring Whedon to finish the film and make significant changes.
‘The Whedon Cut’ bombed critically and commercially. Soon, a movement sprang up from fans who wanted to see the ‘real’ Justice League which they believed was ready to go.
Speaking to THR, Snyder said the new cut will be hugely different to the version of Justice League that fans saw in theaters –
“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,”
“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did.”
Snyder then posted an image on Twitter confirming that villain (and planned Big Bad for the Justice League) Darkseid would appear in his version of the film –

Last month, Ray Potter the actor who played Darkseid confirmed his involvement. With strict permission from Snyder and WB, of course –
That said, and because I’ve been given permission…
Hi, I’m Ray. I played Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League”.
There. It’s out now.
