In an in-depth piece on Zack Snyder’s Justice League over at Vanity Fair, it was reported that Snyder has reshot the ending of his DC blockbuster for the upcoming HBO Max release “with a hero cameo that will blow hard-core fans’ minds”.
Seemingly discounting the possibility of this referring to Martian Manhunter – who is already confirmed to appear, played by Man of Steel’s Harry Lennix – fans quickly began speculating as to the identity of this surprise hero.
A favourite among the names mentioned was Ryan Reynolds’ Hal Jordan from the 2011 Green Lantern movie, prompting Reynolds to respond to the speculation with the following tweet:
It’s not me. But what a cool pirate flag to cameo as Hal. Maybe it’s another GL? But for me, the suit stays in the closet. I mean, computer. https://t.co/QU4NRVadiz

So, if not Reynolds’ Green Lantern (nor Harry Lennix’s Martian Manhunter), then who do you think this mind-blowing cameo could be? Let us know your theories on our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
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.
