The trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League is Here

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League debuts March 18 on HBO Max.

Get a Look at Snyder’s Justice League’s Joker

Jared Leto‘s Joker is back in Zack Snyder‘s Justice League and a new look has been released of this version of the character.

The character was missing in the original release but will be back in the new cut of the movie which debuts on HBO Max on March 18th.

The character in the film wasn’t a part of Snyder’s original vision but came to him after and he decided this is likely the only chance for Leto’s Joker to meet Ben Affleck’s Batman so an additional scene was added to the film.

Ray Fisher Says Joss Whedon was Abusive and Unprofessional on Justice League (Update)

A few days after actor Ray Fisher retracted his praise of director/writer Joss Whedon he went on to further elaborate why on Twitter.

The actor who played Cyborg in Justice League stated that:

Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.

He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

Accountability>Entertainment

Fisher has been talking more about the film since the announcement that Zack Snyder’s vision for the film will be done for HBO Max. He praised Snyder and writer Chris Terrio for “empowering” him and giving him a seat at the creative table with input on his character for the film.

It’s believed that much of Fishers Victor Stone/Cyborg storyline was cut in Whedon’s version of the film. Whedon took over for Snyder on the film after Snyder had to step down due to a family tragedy.

Named as enabling Whedon in the Tweet are Johns and Berg. Both were producers on the film and have credits on numerous DC properties going forward. Johns shifted his focus from comics to DC’s live-action properties but still has handled high-profile DC comic storylines like the recent Doomsday Clock. Johns went from film to comics due to DC staffer Eddie Berganza who himself has a history of abuse. In 2010 Johns was named the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment and he stepped down from his executive role in 2018. He launched Mad Ghost Productions to focus on film, tv, and comic book based on DC properties. He’s currently working on the Green Lantern Corps for HBO Max. Johns being named would be yet another DC executive accused of shielding abusive behavior by staff.

Whedon himself has been involved in comics with the relaunch of his Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel properties at BOOM! Studios.

None of the individuals named have made a statement regarding Fisher’s statement.

Update: Jon Berg has made a statement to Variety saying it was “categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.” He also said “I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series.”

It was announced today as well that Fisher’s co-star Jason Mamoa would be starring in an upcoming film produced by Johns and Berg.

The Mary Sue – Zack Snyder: Dark Knight Returns’ Carrie Kelley Was Supposed to Be Part of DCEU – Intriguing. It feels like it’d be a flip of a coin as to whether folks would be super excited for this or the trolls would win out claiming it was some gender-swapped character. Most like we’d have just seen a clash on the internet of epic irritation.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Delivers a First Look at Darkseid

Director Zack Snyder‘s vision for Justice League will finally be seen in 2021 on HBO Max but it looks like we’re in for a year of teases before its releases.

Snyder headed online to give a blurry look at his take on the classic comic character Darkseid, the villain teased in Batman v Superman and who was to take a bigger role in Snyder’s version.

It’s hard to judge this take as the image is rather far away and blurry but the shape looks right?
