This is the week. We finally get Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueThe Snyder Cut was once a myth, but will soon become a reality. Ahead of the big HBO Max premiere, Warner Bros. an insane new trailer released with never-before-seen footage. The latest sneak peek teases Martian Manhunter’s arrival. Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres on HBO Max beginning March 18, at no additional cost to subscribers.
In Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueDetermined to ensure that Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice wasn’t in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) joins forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans around the world protect against an impending threat of catastrophic proportions.
The task turns out to be more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own past to transcend what has held them back so they can come together and eventually form an unprecedented band of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their terrible intentions.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives on HBO Max with a four-hour run, and is vastly different from the 2017 theatrical release that was overseen by director Joss Whedon. One of the big differences is that Martian Manhunter will be making his presence known to the iconic DC Comics superhero squad. Harry Lennix first appeared as General Swanwick in Man of Steel and has been present in the DCEU ever since. We didn’t get to see his full transformation into Martian Manhunter, but the Snyder Cut will change all that.
Snyder originally planned to reveal Swanwick as Martian Manhunter, with the alien using his transformative powers to disguise herself as Martha Kent at one point. Now that big reveal has been added back to Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueAnd this latest cutscene teases his transformation with a pair of two glowing eyes.
This is the third trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and it will likely be the last before his big debut later this week. Also in the latest images we see more of Darkseid entering Earth, with Green Lantern Corps. come to the scene to defend it. And we get to see that aforementioned scene of Martha Kent and her glowing red eyes, offering Martian Manhunter in his latest human disguise.
The Snyder Cut leaked out on HBO Max itself last week, but Warner Bros quickly corrected it. Since then, several critics and online pundits have seen the film, asking if it was all worth it. Tomorrow we should know via Twitter if this is worthy entry into the now-defunct DCEU or if Zack Snyder’s Justice League should have just stayed in the can.
