Harry Lennix’s General Swanwick was secretly Martian Manhunter in Zack Snyder’s version of the Justice League movie.
This past weekend, Zack Snyder shared a storyboard of a deleted Justice League scene involving Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter with a cheeky caption that emphasized how fans were not aware of this information. In the Justice League storyboard, Martha Kent and Lois Lane can be seen speaking to each other before it’s revealed that the former is actually Martian Manhunter. After the reveal, Martian Manhunter transforms into Harry Lennix’s General Swanwick form.

Quite a bit has been cut from Justice League but the fact that fans were robbed of a reveal of Martian Manhunter is just disappointing. It should be noted that Harry Lennix’s General Swanwick did not appear in the theatrical cut of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, though it is entirely possible that his scenes were deleted and his presence in the movie is just now being revealed to fans. Seeing as we’ve never seen Martian Manhunter on the silver screen before, this could have been a monumental occasion. Details regarding Martian Manhunter in Zack Snyder’s Justice League are slim apart from this. However, seeing as fans are no doubt getting excited over his inclusion in the movie, we can hopefully expect Zack Snyder to reveal more details as time passes.

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.
