6 CHAPTERS IN SNYDER CUT
Even though there are 6 chapters in zack snyder cut of justice league each parts contains 10 mins interval as confirmed
On February 14th, HBO Max released a new trailer for the film featuring a number of the teased images released over the last few months, a couple of classic shots from the extant film, and a handful of new, apocalyptic moments. Perhaps the most surprising element of the Valentine’s Day trailer is the way it reframes the so-called Knightmare from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As Bruce himself explains in the trailer, he had a vision of a broken future world in which Superman enforced a dark agenda. It appears an extended version of the Knightmare will be key to Snyder’s version of Justice League as Bruce goes on to suggest it is the world all the characters will face if they fail to stop Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds).
As it happens, the trailer also seems to recast Steppenwolf’s mission in a clearer way by having him discuss the potential fall of Earth with Darkseid (Ray Porter) and other New Gods like DeSaad (Peter Guinness) and Granny Goodness. At the same time, it gives Bruce a clearer motivation to assemble the League.
Other things teased in the trailer include a scene between Barry Allen and his father Henry (Billy Crudup), the Flash rescuing Iris West (Kiersey Clemons in what may be her only ever appearance as Iris), Steppenwolf’s battle with the Amazons, and a confrontation – if only inside the Knightmare – between the Batman and the Joker.
JARED LETO’S JOKER WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE
On October 21, the Hollywood Reporter revealed that the Snyder Cut would feature a return of the Joker as portrayed by Jared Leto in 2016’s Suicide Squad. It was a surprising announcement because Leto’s Joker was nowhere to be found in the theatrical cut of Justice League, and Leto specifically had to be called in to shoot new scenes that Snyder had originally envisioned for the film. Then, in February, we got our first official images of Leto in character, courtesy of Zack Snyder and an article in Vanity Fair. The images reveal a very different Joker from the one Leto portrayed in Suicide Squad; depicted in black and white, his hair is longer and disheveled, his prominent tattoos are gone, and he’s clothed in gloves and a hospital gown, with a surgical mask dangling from his neck. The piece goes on to explain that — beware of spoilers here — this Joker appears in Snyder’s film in a dream sequence experienced by Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne, revealing the destruction that will take place if the titular heroes are unsuccessful. Beyond that, we don’t really know what this might mean for Leto’s future as the character, being that we’ve already gotten another iteration of the Joker in Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar-winning turn in 2019’s Joker, and we’re also getting another, separate iteration of Batman in The Batman, due out next year.
THE SNYDER CUT WILL TELL MORE OF CYBORG AND FLASH’S STORIES, AND FOCUS ON MEGA VILLAIN DARKSEID
Fans got their first real look at the other three-fourths of Snyder’s vision when a new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League premiered at online convention DC FanDome in August 2020. Set to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – a song Snyder used in his Watchmen film – the trailer revealed a few things, among them:
- Legendary DC big bad Darkseid will indeed be the main focus when it comes to villains. We see him at the opening of the teaser and throughout.
- We will see Superman in his dark, black and silver suit (more on that below).
- We will get more of Victor Stone’s (Ray Fisher) backstory, and this version of Justice League will feature Iris West, the Flash’s love interest, who was cut from the original theatrical release.
- We will get a lot more set up of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman character.
- We will see the Hall of Justice completely devastated.
- Zack Snyder has made good on his promise to change the color of the much-derided orange/red sky that features in the finale.
- Batman gets a rousing moment that he did not in the original, telling the Justice League crew at the end of the trailer, “I don’t care how many demons he’s fought in how many hells. He’s never fought us. Not us united.”
Before revealing the teaser trailer, Snyder told viewers that compared to the original theatrically released Justice League, fans can expect to see “tones more of the flash,” including a scene that will show an ability we’ve not yet seen on screen, and “a little bit more of his emotional arc.”
