A Green Lantern is expected to make an appearance in the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League. Darkseid was also originally intended to play a larger role in Justice League and subsequent DC Extended Universe. However, after Snyder exited the project, Joss Whedon assumed directorial duties during post-production and oversaw extensive reshoots for Justice League that resulted in Darkseid being removed from the theatrical cut. After Justice League opened to underwhelming reviews and underperformed at the box office gross, Warner Bros. reassessed their plans for future DCEU films and Snyder’s five-film arc involving Darkseid was jettisoned.
Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news surrounding Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern and the Zack Snyder Cut, and make sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more content.
