Ever since Justice League hit theaters after its troubled production, many have speculated on what could have, or should have, happened as opposed to what was on screen. What if Zack Snyder was able to finish his vision? What if Warner Bros. pushed the film back for more time? What if John Williams resurrected Superman after the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? OK, maybe that last one is a bit out there, but YouTube animator Ben Bromley answers that insane question in a video titled “How Superman Should Have Returned.”
In the video published Friday, which you can watch below, the famous composer brings Henry Cavill’s Superman back to life, the “real” Lex Luthor comes into the picture and Supes spins Earth around to go back in time — plus much more.
It feels as though every single fan theory or critical response was addressed in one video. People theorizing about the Lex Luthor from Batman v Superman just being the son of the “real” Lex, undoing what was perhaps the most controversial part of Man of Steel in Zod’s death, simplifying the way in which Doomsday was killed in BvS — love or hate those original decisions made on film, seeing it play out differently is certainly fun. Also, we finally got Supes in a black suit again.
