Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Batman Scene
The only good news that we got this year was about Zack Snyder’s Justice League coming to HBO Max in early to mid-2021. Despite the fact that we know quite a lot about this film, we still want to watch what we missed out on back in November 2017. Because WB changed the direction of this film mid-production, we didn’t get Justice League 2 either. If they wouldn’t have meddled with the project, then we would’ve already seen Justice League last year. But at least we are getting the true version of the Snyder Cut. And it will bring all the goods, like the extension of the Knightmare Batman sequence.
When Batman V Superman came out, it took a while for people to understand the relevance of the Knightmare scene. In fact, it was a last minute addition. The whole sequence wasn’t in the original script, and it was added after the film began production. And, we’d say that it was an important scene to add because not only did it raise the tempo of the movie which was going a bit slow paced before the scene, but it had also set up Justice League 2 and Justice League 3 years in advance.
After Snyder was let go of Justice League, we found out that in the Knightmare scene, Darkseid had taken control of Earth after defeating the Justice League in Justice League 2. Superman had given into the Anti-life equation, which is why he was working against Team Batman. Apparently, the Knightmare sequence from Batman V Superman was incomplete. A lot was left to be shown and Snyder has confirmed in the past that the Nightmare sequence is a part of his cut. And now, we might just know what is going to happen in sequence through a storyboard which was designed by Jim Lee. Take a look at the following image leaked on twitter:
Here’s what’s written on the storyboard:
“Five years later.
Sand dunes. Smoldering solar pits. Gothic spires rising from the desert. Once, this was Gotham. Now, like the rest of the Earth, it belongs to Darkseid.
Coming over the dune, post-apocalyptic Batman (as seen in BvS), with a ragtag army of rebels – the surviving members of the Justice League walk over the rise of a dune to see the dilapidated Wayne Manor. Batman leads them. Flash drags what’s left of Cyborg behind him. Bruce looks up to the sky, grimly, “We need to get inside before night. He’s coming.”
End Part One”
This would be so awesome to witness in Justice League. If you look at Cyborg, his body is completely destroyed. This scene takes place 5 years after Justice League Part 1. Kevin Smith revealed the plot details of Justice League Part 2 where the Leaguers would’ve straight away taken the fight to Darkseid at Apokolips. But, Darkseid would’ve wiped the floor with them. He would’ve defeated the heroes and Earth would’ve succumbed to the Anti-life Equation. It would’ve been insane. Let’s just hope that we could still get to see all of this when Zack Snyder’s Justice League becomes a success on HBO Max.
Here are the further details that have been revealed about Justice League, JL 2 & 3:
“Snyder’s Justice League would play like the theatrical version, with one ending twist: Darkseid revealing himself to the League, as Steppenwolf’s master.
Justice League 2 would’ve gone cosmic, with the League mounting an attack on Apokolips and Darkseid. That major event would’ve brought the New Gods of New Genesis and the Green Lantern Corps into the mix.
The second movie would’ve ended on a dark and ominous loss, as Darkseid thrashed the Justice League and killed Lois Lane, taking Superman prisoner and creating the “Dark Superman” we saw in Batman v Superman through the Anti-Life Equation
Justice League 3 would’ve seen Darkseid invade Earth without the League there to defend it, conquering the planet and creating the “Knightmare” reality in Batman v Superman.
Through several time travel loops (including Flash’s failed warning to Bruce in Batman v Superman) Batman would have to reach Superman and bring him back on the side of good, so that the League could defeat Darkseid and save the world.”
