We live in a society where, despite being four hours long, ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ still has deleted scenes!
When Zack snyder released the trailer for his version of League of Justice, ended it with a joke that Jared Leto as the Joker would actually say the line “we live in a society”. After lots of internet jokes, Leto’s inclusion of the line was a fitting sort of inclusion for this new cut, a ridiculous snake eating its own tail on the internet that Leto also referenced when he tweeted the trailer. However, after fans spent four hours watching Zack Snyder’s Justice League, they learned that the scene wasn’t actually in the movie. Well now Snyder has posted the actual scene on Twitter.
The scene takes place during the Knightmare sequence at the end of the movie, and gives Batman (Ben affleck) and Joker (Leto) had a pretty intense time together. In the scene, Batman tells Joker that Harley Quinn died in his arms, and with his dying breath, he made Batman promise that he would kill Joker slowly. Batman says he plans to keep that promise. He even slips into an expletive! This is not your parents’ Batman!
But after this promise, Joker says the line that everyone has been waiting for: “We live in a society where honor is a distant memory.” Of course, Joker says this in the shadow of a burning city, which shows that, in reality, it seems like there isn’t much society left.
The version Snyder shares is black and white, like Snyder’s “Justice is Gray” version, but the scene doesn’t exist in this new version of the film either. But in addition to sharing the deleted scene, Snyder also links to the Shop for Leto’s band Thirty Seconds to Mars, where fans of the Snyder cut can buy a T-shirt that says “we live in a society” and is modeled by Leto.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League and the version “Justice is Gray” are already available on HBO Max. Check out Snyder’s “we live in a society” deleted scene tweet below:
