Zack Snyder Releases The Trailer For His Version Of 'Justice League' Set To Be Released In Four Parts

I can't believe its 2020 and we're still talking about the first Justice League movie, but here we are. After Zack Snyder was replaced by Joss Whedon on the original JL movie it was clear the movie's final product was not what the original director had intended. From Henry Cavill's strangely deleted mustache, to a whole new color palette to some scenes, Snyder fans were left wondering what the original version would've looked like. Now they've finally got their wish after months of lobbying for its release on social media and even getting involvement from the film's cast themselves, the film will be released in four one hour parts on HBO Max next year.

Below is the trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League:
The trailer shows off many of the deleted scenes and aspects of the movie that never made into Whedon's version, specifically the actual appearance of Darkseid. While he's mentioned as a looming threat in the original movie, here we actually see a flashback scene to Darkseid before he gets his omega power. This scene was actually in the theatrical cut but featured Steppenwolf instead of Darkseid fighting off armies of Atlanteans, Amazonians, and Green Lanterns for the mother boxes in the past. Its rumored this actual fight scene will be much longer in Snyder's version. There's also Steppenwolf's very different look which is similar to the design Snyder used in the deleted scene from Batman v. Superman which featured the character.

Then there's of course all the things we had heard about over time such as the black suited Superman, many more Cyborg scenes and his actual backstory, and the Flash scene featuring Iris West. Snyder confirmed we'll be getting to see Flash actually time travel in this version, and it will likely connect to the Darkseid ravaged future we see in the trailer and saw in Batman v. Superman. This may also finally connect to the scene where Flash come back to warn Bruce in BVS, a scene which still has yet to be given an explanation in the MCU but was likely a part of Snyder's plans.

As far as what was added by Whedon and won't be in this version of the movie, we know several of the comedy scenes including those between Bruce Wayne and Barry and some of Ben Affleck's lines during the fight against Superman won't be in the movie. We also know Cyborg and Barry won't have their moment bonding when they dig up Superman's grave, as it appears Cyborg is now doing that alone in a much more dramatic scene. Meanwhile Flash may be busy during this time time traveling to the Darkseid post apocalyptic future and to warn Bruce of Superman becoming evil. Evil Superman was a brief moment that was taken care of quickly in the Whedon version, but here it'll likely be a much larger storyline with Darkseid using the anti-matter equation on him which is what leads to the scene we saw in Batman v. Superman during Bruce's visions.

So what do you think of the trailer for the Snyder cut? Do you think you'll prefer this version over Whedon's? Let us know below!

First Official Trailer For 'The Batman' Premieres At DC Fandome And Shows Off His Second Year Under The Cowl

Something just didn't feel right for comic book movie fans this summer. Between our usual summer releases and Comic-Con announcement, the time span between May and August has almost become comic book Christmas. Thankfully DC has still managed to bring us some excitement amidst the Covid 19 pandemic, with their own version of a virtual Comic-Con known as DC Fandome. The event brought us several video game announcements, as well as sneak peaks of upcoming movies like the Snyder Cut of Justice League, The Suicide Squad, Black Adam, Shazam 2, Wonder Woman 1984, and of course the grand finale of the first trailer for Matt Reeves' The Batman.

Below is the first trailer for The Batman:
From the start of the trailer the masked man we're seeing taping up his victim is actually Paul Dano's Riddler, which is of course very different from his over top hat and cane look from the comics. Reeves' here seems to be taking a page out of Nolan's book, moving away from the comic look for a more modern and realistic look for the character. This also is a huge divergence from the looks Zack Snyder was going for with his world and Ben Affleck's Batman, which by all accounts was visually much closer to the aesthetic of the comics. We also get a good look at his smaller Batmobile and Batcave, which all just add to the darker more realistic feel especially for a much younger inexperienced Batman.

You may not have realized The Penguin is also in this trailer, and Colin Farrell looks unrecognizable as the character under all the makeup and facial prosthetics. Its hard to tell how important he'll be to the story as he's probably just still Oswald Cobblepott here, but we do see him in a chase scene with Batman. Matt Reeves' has revealed the movie will focus on the corruption of the Gotham PD which may tie into Cobblepott as well as Jeffrey Wright's Commissioner Gordon who already clearly has a relationship with Batman here. The Riddler seems to have a vendetta against them but has also clearly singled out Batman and wants his attention as scene with the uni-bomber scene at the funeral, and the riddle he left for him on the card.

Zoe Kravitz' Catwoman is also seen is a very early version of her suit, so its likely she's just getting started around the same time as Batman. The two share fight scene in the trailer but its hard to tell how important she'll be, and if she'll be on Batman or Riddler side. The movie seems to be following a Long Halloween style of storyline with The Riddler creating this elaborate plot for Batman and him having to use his detective skills to get the bottom of things. Reeves also confirmed several things including the fact the show will take place in year two of Batman's career, it will tie into the Gotham PD series he's developing for HBO Max, and it will have no connection to any of the previous DC movies.
