Diana’s about to make a discovery that will shake the nascent DC superhero team to their core. In an effort to promote the Snyder Cut of Justice League ahead of DC FanDome in August, Zack Snyder has posted a new clip from the upcoming version of the film, which is set to debut in 2021 on HBO Max. While Lex Luthor’s words to Batman at the end of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice plays in the background, Diana, carrying a torch, discovers the meaning behind the billionaire’s words as she comes across an image of iconic DC villain Darkseid. From there, we see a brief shot of Darkseid’s army before the clip ends. Check out the Snyder Cut sneak peek below:
Well, this was a nice surprise today. I hadn’t expected to see anything from the Snyder Cut until the aforementioned DC event. While this Snyder Cut sneak peek was short, I like the fact that it’s building on its divisive predecessor in a way that its theatrical counterpart never did, the result of studio mandates. I’ve always enjoyed the original version, but you could tell they were doing everything they could to avoid reminding people of the last film when it was obvious that Snyder had big plans for the DC universe going forward. In addition, it was surprising to see an image of Darkseid so clearly. To me, it adds to the grandeur of this movie and really makes me excited to see more. That being said, I do really hope that Snyder saves any more clips for DC Fandome, so here’s hoping this will be the last one for a few weeks.
