OK now the trailer was only a few minutes long but in those few minutes, something glorious happened as we were all witness to the first footage of Zack Snyder’s true vision for Justice Lague and let me tell you, I am excited. Where to begin? Well, I can let you just watch the trailer below which Snyder finally unveiled for the first time after months and months of teasing (and I do mean teasing) but the wait was well worth it as the visuals, the look and the iconic super heroes themselves all looked like we wanted them too. By all means, bare witness to what we can expect next year when Justice League: The Snyder Cut hits HBO Max!
What is even more awesome is Snyder announced that the film will be broken up into four hour long episodes but will eventually be made into one four hour long epic of DC superhero awesomeness. Snyder was also on hand to answer questions and those questions were asked by the cast themselves with Affleck going first. Affleck asked him who his favorite superhero was to which Snyder answered Dr. Manhattan from WATCHMAN. Ray Fisher (Cyborg) was next and he asked Snyder who was he most excited for fans to see in the cut to which Snyder replied Cyborg. Snyder has confirmed that this version will have Cyborg as its true heart.
Ezra Miller showed up and asked Snyder if we were going to see more of The Flash and Snyder said yes. Gal Gadot mentiond that is was Snyder who cast her as Wonder Woman and thanked the fans for making The Snyder Cut a reality. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins was on hand too and asked Snyder to tell us what we are going to see that we haven’t yet. Snyder simply said that “you’re gonna see something of Flash in this film you haven’t seen before,” It has something to do with time and spaceof course.
The teaser was presented with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” as the backdrop and we all know that Snyder used that song in his Watchmen adaptation. What I thought was the coolest was that Henry Cavill’s Man Of Steel wore his black uniform throughout and the last shot of all the Justice League together gave me goosebumps.
I really do hope that Snyder is able to continue his interpretation of the DCEU on HBO Max and here’s hoping that this is a hit. Enough talk. Check out the epic trailer below and get ready because he is coming but it’s OK because as Bruce Wayne states at the end of the trailer, ” I don’t care how many demons he’s fought and how many Hells. He’s never fought us. Not us united.”
