everything you need to know about the new version of the film

Justice League, Warner Bros. to the Avengers films, will be entitled to another chance thanks to the famous Snyder Cut. We take stock of this project which seeks to reaffirm the cinematographic universe of DC Comics.

Unlike the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Comics films produced under the Warner Bros. failed to create a coherent and successful universe. Yet it was the idea initiated by Zack Snyder with Man of Steel in 2013. There is then had the mediocre Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and, above all, the failure Justice League (2017), superhero reunion that completed the ambitions of Warner Bros .. In defense of Justice League, the blockbuster saw a change of director along the way, with Zack Snyder giving way to Joss Whedon after a family tragedy.

Murdered by the press (45/100 on Metacritic), Justice League brought in more than half the money of the very first Avengers released in 2012: $ 658 million, compared to $ 1.5 billion according to figures provided by Box Office Mojo. Today, this failure, both critical and commercial, allows Zack Snyder to finally propose the Justice League he dreamed of initially. It will be offered in SVOD on HBO Max on March 18th. In the meantime, we take stock of this somewhat megalomaniac project.

What is the Justice League Snyder Cut?

At the origin of the Snyder Cut, we find a lobbying campaign orchestrated by fans, and supported by the actors of Justice League to obtain redress after the theatrical release of the film. In this case: the Justice League as Zack Snyder had imagined, and not the one patched up by Joss Whedon at the behest of Warner Bros .. Better, the director obtained an envelope of a few million dollars to shoot new scenes and assert a little more his vision (over $ 70 million according to Screen Rant, a huge budget for a Director’s Cut version).

Originally, Zack Snyder’s Justice League was to be cut into four one hour portions. This format was finally abandoned and it is indeed a (very) four-hour feature film that will be offered to viewers. A record for a superhero movie.

What are the main changes incorporated by the Justice League Snyder Cut?

The few images of Zack Snyder’s Justice League confirm that it will have nothing to do with the Justice League original, except perhaps on the basis of the plot. Joss Whedon’s version tackles the issues with a lighter tone, where Zack Snyder intends to offer a divine, almost mythological breath to the alliance between Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman. The blockbuster will be darker and more violent, with clashes expected to increase in fury and intensity.

Other size change, Zack Snyder’s Justice League will bring the antagonist Darkseid into the equation. In the Justice League of Joss Whedon, he’s barely mentioned and the superheroes must fight Steppenwolf, a lieutenant from Apokolips who will be in Snyder’s version alongside DeSaad. In the DC Comics universe, it is not forbidden to think that Darkseid is the equivalent of Thanos at Marvel – that is to say the task that awaits the vigilantes.

In addition, the plot should refocus on certain characters very poorly put forward. For example, Cyborg will be much more important in the story.

What is the cast of the Justice League Snyder Cut?

The cast will be identical. So we find Ben Affleck in Batman, Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa in Aquaman, Henry Cavill in Superman, Ray Fisher in Cyborg, Ezra Miller in Flash, Jesse Eisenberg in Lex Luthor or even Amy Adams in Lois Lane.

We will note the appearance of Jared Leto, who will use his Joker costume for a few scenes. However, the actor has changed his look from the one he wears in the film. Suicide Squad (goodbye tattoos and short hair). Same story for Joe Manganiello, who finds the role of Deathstroke (he only appears in the post-credits scene in the Justice League 2017).
