‘Justice League’ VFX Reel Reveals Alternate Aquaman Recruitment Scene

A news visual effects reel from Warner Bros. 'Justice League' shows Batman trying to locate Aquaman in a different way than in the original version.

New footage has surfaced from 2017’s Justice League that features an alternate version of the scene where Batman is trying to recruit Aquaman to his team of super powered heroes. In the film, the scene takes place relatively early, and in its original form is one of the more memorable aspects.

As most fans of the now officially titled Worlds of DC universe know Justice League was met with mixed reviews at best, and most of the criticism was aimed at the tonal confusion presented throughout the film’s narrative that is attributed to Joss Whedon taking over directorial control after Zack Snyder had to step down due to family tragedy. This has sent many diehard fans of Snyder on a forlorn journey to locate the mythical “Snyder Cut”.

Though it has been stated that there is no “Snyder Cut”, or at the very least Warner Bros. will never release it, this new scene could be evidence of its existence. It most likely will stay mired in conspiracy, but this footage is fuel for those who truly wish for the alternate version of the film.

The footage in question is ostensibly the same as that from the movie, but the primary difference lies in Bruce Wayne using a business card to locate Arthur Curry instead of flaunting around cash. This calls into question what exactly Batfleck was trying to accomplish by name dropping himself. The clip come with no audio fanning the flames of conspiracy in both intent as well as context.
