More details continue to surface about the Justice League Snyder Cut. Zack Snyder recently held a live-stream event where he revealed some new details on his plans for the DC Extended Universe before Joss Whedon took over Justice League and continues to share on Vero.

In the Justice League theatrical cut, Connie Nielsen’s Hippolyta from Wonder Woman returned to protect the Amazonian Mother Boxes from Steppenwolf. Connie Nielsen confirmed in an interview with that all her scenes where shot by Zack Snyder and her favorite stunt in Justice League was left on the cutting room floor:

“My absolute favorite stunt was cut from the film, and I’m having a hard time accepting that, it was so cool. I got to run up a wall and pivot in the air, and as I pivoted on my way down I speared one of the monsters. I literally did that for weeks to get that, and then they didn’t put it in. They took it out, they put it in, they took it out… It’s my great regret because I love stunts, I love being a badass in a film like that, and then sorry that the audience didn’t get to see that part of the cool Amazon fighting techniques, because they were very cool!”
