Superman in black, Darkseid, Green Lantern … what is expected from Justice League’s Snyder Cut

| |

Some did not believe it, others on the contrary awaited it impatiently. The answer was finally provided last week, when the Snyder Cut broadcast on HBO Max has been made official. As you can imagine, the announcement created excitement on the web. All those who were disappointed by Justice league see the version of Zack Snyder as a hope, a way to restore things in the DCEU. In other words to have the “real” film on the Justice League. Despite everything, as full of promise as it is, the Snyder Cut will probably not satisfy everyone. However, if she understands even one of the moments listed below, we will already be very happy.

Kryptonian mythology

He had been teased, but he never came … We are of course talking about Superman’s black suit. Far from signaling the hero’s passage to the Dark side, this costume is actually a Kryptonian technology supposed to help Superman regain strength. Zack Snyder has already mentioned that he wants to explore the mythology and biology of the planet originally from Clark Kent to further explain his resurrection. So we hope that this will be the case in his Snyder Cut, and that we can finally see the mythical dark costume of Superman in action.

More Flash and Cyborg

If there are characters who should gain development in Snyder Cut, it is Flash and Cyborg. We should indeed have a further demonstration of the powers of Barry Allen, who could even use them for time travel. As for the origins of Cyborg, they should finally be shown to us. In fact, several images and videos shared by Zack Snyder reveal a glimpse of the events that led to the transformation of Victor Stone. They would allow a better understanding of the character. We just hope that these passages will be as developed as the director suggested.

Green Lantern Joins Justice League

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, Aquaman. We don’t know you, but we do have six members in the Justice League. However, all the first promotional posters for the film spoke well of uniting seven heroes. We therefore hope that this seventh mystery member will be Green Lantern, whose appearance in the film was eagerly awaited. He may not be expected to play a key role in the plot, but at least he will make an appearance towards the end.

Martian Manhunter

What if this seventh member of the team was none other than J’onn J’ozz aka Martian Manhunter? In fact, it is already present in the DCEU since it is General Swanwick, introduced in Man of Steel. Zack Snyder also confirmed that the general knows of Superman’s secret identity. He’s an interesting character from the DC Comics universe, who was also part of the Justice League. So let’s hope that he will have the right in his time in the Snyder Cut.

Darkseid

The presence of Darkseid in the Snyder Cut has also already been confirmed by Zack Snyder. However, we don’t really know how present the iconic enemy of the Justice League will be. Will it make a simple appearance during a memory or at the end of the film? Will he face the Justice League? This does not seem unlikely to us, but we still hope that the latter option will be the right one.

Less caricatured characters

DCEU films, especially those by Zack Snyder, have often been criticized for having a far too dark and serious side. A tone that has changed somewhat drastically in Justice league, so much so that some humorous characters and lines sometimes lack subtlety. We therefore hope that the Snyder Cut will be more balanced on this side.

A real end

Zack Snyder had very specific plans for the DCEU. His Justice league had to be followed by a Justice League part 2, film in which Batman was supposed to lose his life. However, even if the release of its Snyder Cut has something to celebrate, it is doubtful that it will be able to give rise to a second blockbuster. We therefore hope that this version of the Justice League will have an end and a real one, in order to avoid the teasing of a second film that we will never see.
