Justice League is the 2021 project that none of us can really wait for. Zack Snyder put a lot of effort into his film and all that went in vain. But now, after almost 3 years of constant fan cry, HBO Max is bringing us the Snyder Cut. It will have everything that Snyder had promised us, and so much more. If Warner Bros. would have used his cut of the film, then everyone would have been left in a state of shock. Especially with the Martian Manhunter reveal.
Snyder’s plan was to reveal Harry Lennix’s General Swanwick as the Martian Manhunter of DCEU in Justice League. But sadly, Whedon was brought in and Snyder had to make this reveal of J’onn J’onzz on the internet. Anyway, we’re really happy that we will get to see him show up on HBO Max. Even though we know that he is coming, there’s still an element of surprise around him. But, just a little part of this surprise has been revealed by Snyder, as he has shown a very basic design of how Martian Manhunter might look. Snyder recently appeared on the League of Mayhem stream, and here’s what he showed for a split second:
He pointed his phone at the screen for less than a second and then took it away. Right after that, he said “That was just a drawing. That’s a tease!” So, it may not be the final design of Martian Manhunter in Justice League, but it could be pretty close to that. This isn’t the only image that Snyder showed. He also revealed a Darkseid image, which according to him would look pretty cool on a T-Shirt. Here, take a look:
So far, we’ve only seen Uxas in the Justice League trailer. He is the younger version of Darkseid. By the end of the film, we’re supposed to see Darkseid, and he is probably going to look just like he does on this T-shirt design. What’s really interesting is his tagline, i.e. “All of existence shall be mine.” He isn’t someone who wants to bring balance in the Universe. He wants everything that exists to fall under the control of his anti-life equation. Honestly, we cannot wait to see both Darkseid and the Martian Manhunter in Justice League. They might have just one or two appearances in the whole 4-hour cut of the film, but their involvement will be much bigger in Justice League 2.
Talking about Justice League 2, Snyder said that his plans for Darkseid will expand in the future. Here’s his full comment:
“If you said to any of the actors in the movie ‘well what happens in the movie’ or ‘what happens later’ or whatever for any movie. And they go ‘well I got the script and it’s cool and I kind of know this and-‘ so [Ray Porter] and I were talking about this and what’s cool or what’s the right response to some questions. It’s a fair question to ask me, you know, like what do I say to the world about, you know, what happens when Darkseid comes to Earth? Then what? You know, Is that a thing? And I think, listen, the truth is that, did I write and did I have and conceive a complete- do I know what happens when Darkseid… yes. I do know what happens. To say and to speculate about what that is and that that would be exciting, I think that’s a fine thing.”
There’s a lot of stuff that has been revealed about the Snyder cut, but a lot of it is still a mystery. One of the reasons we’re all really excited about it is because it would give Snyder a chance to get Justice League 2 going. Let’s hope that the Snyder Cut will do well because if that happens, Justice League 2 will be green lit and that’s when the League is going to take on Darkseid with the likes of Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern also being in their ranks. Let’s see how things turn out.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives next year.
