Justice League: Zack Snyder Had To Reshoot Martian Manhunter Scenes Via Zoom

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is a dream come true for many. Not just the fans, but for Zack Snyder, and DC Extended Universe as well. The 2017 Justice League literally bombed the entire existence of the members in Justice League with its skippy and uninteresting performance. But Snyder’s remake of Justice League saved the team and secured its future in the DC Extended Universe. Zack Snyder’s Justice League sits at an astounding 97% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Zack Snyder introduced a lot of new characters. Snyder decided to escalate the evil team by finally bringing Darkseid to life. This addition was the one fans were particularly most excited about. Darkseid was seen being accompanied by his right hand DeSaad, and Granny Goddess as well. Steppenwolf was also revamped and made to look more devious with alterations in his outfit. The movie altogether had a bunch of changes. But one addition was the most shocking one. Snyder introduced Martian the Manhunter, and fans just lost it. This established the very core of Justice League’s sequels.

Zack Snyder, as of recently, sat down for an interview with Kyle McMahon and discussed his Justice League and the future plans he had for the DCEU. When talking about last year’s reshoots, Snyder touched upon the strangeness of directing people over Zoom. He admitted the movie’s surprise Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix) reveal – where the alien is revealed to be masquerading as Martha Kent (Diane Lane) after speaking to Lois Lane (Amy Adams) – had to be completed via Zoom. Snyder said,

“We had to do it over Zoom because [Miller’s] in England and I couldn’t travel, so we just did it over Zoom. I only needed a couple of shots of him, but that was pretty crazy. I’d never done that. I did Diane Lane the same way for her little [bit], where she comes out and does her Martian Manhunter cameo. That shot where she comes out the door and looks around, that shot we didn’t have, so I had to get that.”

Zack Snyder was to originally direct the 2017 version of Justice League. But due to the sudden demise of his daughter, Snyder had to leave the production midway. As a result, his work was left to be completed by Joss Whedon. But when the movie came out, Snyder and the fans realized that Whedon had edited out most of what Snyder had done and what he originally intended to do. Whedon’s Justice League eventually flopped at the box office and the critics smashed it. But more than that, the fans were severely disappointed. It’s just nice to see that fans still wanted to see Snyder’s version of the film, and when it came, fans couldn’t wait for it.

Justice League Snydercut Would Be R-Rated

It’s wonderful to see Snyder being so zealous for his version that he was convinced to direct a part of the movie via Zoom, which seems impossible to untrained people you and me. But he did it anyway. What’s more interesting is that he did it perfectly, considering he hasn’t carried out anything like this before. Zack Snyder did set out to make records!
