Hallejuah! It’s here. As you know, DC FanDome, Warner Bros. virtual event for all things DC, is currently underway. Today, we have gotten big reveals such as second trailer for Wonder Woman: 1984 , a cast reveal for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights, concept art from The Flash. And now, we have what many (including the Reel 360 team) has been waiting for – the teaser for Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League, AKA the “Snyder Cut.”
How does one describe it? Very Snyder like, Which means dreamy and lots of slow motion. It also gives us new footage, including the first look at Darkseid in action, Superman in his black suit and Ben Affleck acting like the critically applauded version of Batman he played in Batman v Superman and not the bloated one in the universally panned Joss Whedon Justice League.
And of course there is the song Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, which Snyder also used in 2008’s Watchmen during the sex scene between between Nite Owl and Silk Spectre II in. Snyder also confirmed what was previously reported, that the film will be presented episodically in four parts.
As for the panel, it was mainly the stars of the film – Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher asking fan questions to Snyder. One of them, relayed by Ray Fisher, asked what characters Snyder looks forward to further developing in his version of the film.
Snyder said it was Fisher’s Cyborg,” who Snyder called “the heart of the movie,” adding that he’s “excited for fans to see just how that is realized on camera.”
Snyder is getting around $30 million to do whatever he needs to do, which includes touched up special effects and possibly some very limited reshoots.
