Zack Snyder shared key concept art from Justice League that shows Bruce Wayne meeting Green Lantern John Stewart for the first time.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League was filled with new, iconic moments and reveals that Snyder had been teasing for ages, like the inclusion of Darkseid or Martian Manhunter. Most of Snyder’s cut and scrapped moments made their way into the 2021 version of the film, except for one pivotal reveal that we know of: John Stewart. Snyder’s original vision for Justice League saw Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne meeting the Green Lantern John Stewart in the film’s finale. Snyder even went as far ahead as casting Wayne T. Carr as John Stewart for the DC project. Warner Bros. and DC eventually put their foot down and forced Snyder to cut the meeting between Green Lantern and Batman. Snyder considered scrapping all of Justice League but decided against it, changing Batman’s encounter with the Green Lantern to the Martian Manhunter.
Taking to Vero, Zack Snyder shared concept art of Bruce Wayne being visited by Green Lantern John Stewart. Set similarly to the scene seen in the theatrical cut, the concept art shows Wayne at his lake-side estate as he gazes at the cosmic hero. And in true Zack Snyder fashion, the concept art comes with a lengthy Joseph Campbell quote, discussing the importance of adversity and changing one’s perspective.

“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.
