The reoccurring role of General Swanwick from Man Of Steel and Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice had to be there for a reason, right? Now actor Harry Lennix has confirmed to Collider why he was sticking around. In the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League he will reveal himself to be the Martian Manhunter.

This has been a long rumored, but never conformed development. The character didn’t appear in the theatrical cut of Justice League however he confirmed that he has shot extra footage as part of the $70 million Snyder Cut reshoots.

A second trailer and air date announcement is rumored to be imminent. HBO Max will air it as a limited event series in four one-hour parts. March is frequently touted as the most likely release date.

We wonder if some of that $70 million will have gone on rectifying the continuity that Wonder Woman 1984 completely ruined?
