A profile packed with information about Zack Snyder’s Justice League includes the promise that a new DC hero will be introduced. The profile arrives only a few weeks before Zack Snyder’s Justice League premiered on HBO Max on March 18. On Valentine’s Day, Snyder shared the official trailer for his version of Justice League. The trailer showcased all of the new Snyder-Cut footage that fans could enjoy in the four-hour R-rated movie and even featured a moment straight out of today’s meme culture.
On Monday, a Vanity fair profile on Snyder’s efforts to make his version of League of Justice and bring it to HBO Max was posted. The profile is juicy, filled to the brim with new information about Snyder’s long creative journey and the personal toll this film took on him and his wife, the producer. Deborah Snyder. Among the most exciting sections of the profile is a paragraph dedicated to analyzing what has been added or adjusted to Snyder’s League of Justice Court.
In this part of the report, Vanity Fair notes, in part, “[Snyder] has put Superman in a sleek black suit instead of the iconic blue and red. He has added the Joker (Jared Leto). He has re-filmed the finale with a hero cameo that will blow the minds of hardcore fans. In what may be a divisive move, it is also presenting the film in 4: 3 square format rather than widescreen so that it can one day be viewed on IMAX screens. ”
The part that stands out here – “He’s re-filmed the ending with a hero cameo that will blow the minds of fans” – is also the part that raises some important questions. Perhaps the most important and urgent question of all is: Who could this hero cameo be? But also, if Snyder re-filmed the ending, is this hero cameo the only thing that has changed? Or has Snyder taken some liberties by tweaking it even more since Zack Snyder’s Justice League does not have to comply with the canon DCEU timeline?
It would be tempting to make a big bet for Green Lantern to appear at the end of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Green Lantern is a key member of the Justice League in the comics after all. It would be fun to take a look at Ryan reynolds‘in Green Lantern (no substitutes allowed). Plus, it would mean that we could finally get Green Lantern back to the DCEU in a legitimate way.
Instead, it is very likely that the “hero cameo” that Vanity Fair refers to here is Martian Manhunter, who will be played by Harry lennix on the Snyder Cut. Lennix confirmed his participation in the new League of Justice with Collider in January. At the time, Lennix not only confirmed that he would be in the new League of Justice, but also confirmed that his Iron Man General Swanwick’s character is, in fact, J’onn J’onzz.
Now if this “hero cameo” isn’t any of these assumptions and it ends up being a completely different character, it’s very likely that DCEU fans will lose their minds, and I mean that in the best possible way. I am not opposed to a good surprise once in a while. And hey, if Snyder is taking liberties, why not jump over the fences and introduce a whole new character?
