New photos from Zack Snyder’s Justice League offer surprising new looks at Joker, Batman and Mera.
With mere weeks to go until Justice League arrives on HBO Max, an extensive new piece from Vanity Fair explored the entire history of the project and how it came to pass. But as well as discussing the troubled movie and the interference from Warner Bros., the piece revealed moody new photos of Jared Leto’s Joker, Ben Affleck’s Batman and even a shot of Amber Heard in her original Mera costume.
Fans originally got their first look at Jared Leto’s Joker in Justice League in the recent first trailer, which teased some kind of confrontation between the Clown Prince of Crime and Batman in the Knightmare timeline. The new photos from Vanity Fair show off the villain in a biblical style, wearing a crown of thorns. Whether the villain will don the messianic look in the film remains to be seen. The other photos show off Batman in his post-apocalyptic costume as well as Amber Heard wearing Mera’s Atlantean crown. Take a look below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Zack Snyder cut:
“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.
