We've got a couple of new images from the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Zack Snyder has been sharing quite a few images from his abandoned vision for the movie lately, which has only served to strengthen calls for Warner Bros. to release his version. In this case, we have an image of Ezra Miller's Barry Allen, aka The Flash in action, as well as one of Victor Stone, aka Cyborg.
Zack Snyder shared the Flash image via his Vero account. The niche social media platform is where the filmmaker does the majority of his posting these days. The image sees The Flash looking into the abyss of a huge explosion, the world ripping apart around him. It's expected that this image is teasing a plot point that would have seen Barry Allen using the Speed Force to travel back in time, which would give the Justice League another shot at defeating Steppenwolf and his bigger, badder superior, Darkseid. Snyder provided the following caption with the image.
"Miller is the Flash."
It was previously confirmed by Zack Snyder that he intended to use time travel to connect Justice League parts one and two, back when the plan was to make the whole thing a two-parter. This would have helped to resolve a major cliffhanger in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, when Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne sees a vision of The Flash from the future. He explains that Lois Lane is the key, which is also something Snyder would have explored in a sequel, had he been afforded the chance to move forward with his larger plan.
Ray Fisher took to Twitter to also share an never-before-seen image of Cyborg that didn't end up in the final movie. In it, we see Steppenwolf attacking Silas Stone's lab. Cyborg is seen getting in between the villain and his father. Without further context, it's hard to speculate too much, but one has to assume this had to do with the Mother Boxes. Fisher captioned the photo simply but effectively. With, "#ReleaseTheSnyderCut."
Given the divisive response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the production of Justice League became contentious. Warner Bros. no longer trusted Zack Snyder's vision and there were clashes behind-the-scenes regarding how best to proceed. Eventually, Snyder departed the project, with Joss Whedon (The Avengers) coming in to oversee massive rewrites and reshoots. The final result is something of a Frankenstein's monster, gluing together some of Snyder's vision, and some of what Whedon did. That final product turned out to be something of a disappointment, both critically and commercially.
In the nearly two years since the movie's release, fans have called for the Justice League Snyder Cut to be released. It still remains somewhat debatable as to what degree Snyder's version may or may not exist. The general consensus seems to be that, at the very least, an assembly cut with unfinished special effects is sitting at Warner Bros. somewhere. Certain fans have held out hope that the Snyder Cut will be released on HBO Max next year, but there is no indication at this time that the studio will make that happen. Be sure to check out the images for yourself from Vero and Ray Fisher's Twitter.
