By now, it’s become very apparent that Zack Snyder’s vision for Justice League and the wider DC Extended Universe was considerably different from what ultimately played out on screen once Warner Bros. executives and director Joss Whedon got involved with reshaping his plans.
Snyder has already shared some details into his original story plans, and now the filmmaker has revealed on social media platform Vero that Martian Manhunter would have appeared in the movie – and not only that, but he also featured in Man of Steel, as he’d have been played by Harry Lennix, confirming the fan theories that General Swanwick was actually a disguised J’onn J’onzz.
What do you make of this reveal? Are you disappointed that we didn’t get to see the big screen debut of Martian Manhunter in Justice League? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on our social channels @flickeringmyth…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
