New behind-the-scenes images from Zack Snyder’s Justice League show stars such as Henry Cavill, Amber Heard and Jason Momoa getting into superhero shape for the DC team-up movie.
Justice League was initially released in 2017 with a theatrical cut that was completed by Avengers director Joss Whedon when Zack Snyder left the project amidst a family tragedy. When fans were unhappy with the theatrical cut, they began a petition for Warner Bros. to release Snyder’s cut of the film. Eventually, fan efforts proved successful, with Snyder completing his 4-hour cut of Justice League for release on HBO Max in 2021.
The film saw Henry Cavill’s Superman resurrected to join forces with Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and other heroes in order to combat the threat of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds).
Inside The Justice League’s Gym
Images that have been shared for the first time on Twitter show the stars of Justice League, along with director Zack Snyder, as they hit the gym to build those superhero physiques. The images include Superman himself Henry Cavill, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher, Aquaman star Jason Momoa and even Mera actress Amber Heard before her recent trial with Johnny Depp made her a figure of controversy.
The photos were taken by trainer and photographer Mark Twight. And, of course, they wouldn’t be photos from a Zack Snyder movie if they weren’t in black and white. Check out the new images in the tweets below:
The images are an impressive demonstration of the hard work superhero movie stars put into building superhuman bodies. It is not yet clear whether Zack Snyder will return to direct another DCEU movie, but Jason Momoa and Amber Heard are expected to return to the big screen next year in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Here is the synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league 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 dreadful intentions.”
