There’s much been made about the upcoming Snyder Cut of 2017’s Justice League. As we’ve noted previously, Snyder began as the director of the DC hero-uniting movie (starring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg) but had to step away because of a family tragedy. The directing duties were taken over by Joss Whedon who altered the look (and some of the content) of the film which ultimately got decidedly mixed reviews. For years there were rumours that a different cut might exist containing more of Snyder’s original, exorcised footage, but it seemed more speculation than fact.
However, in May 2020, it was announced that Snyder was, indeed, working on putting together a film that reflected more of his original vision and would even shoot a few more minutes of connective footage. The plan was not to release the film onto cinema screens (notwithstanding that there aren’t currently many cinema screens to play it on), but broadcast it as a four-part ‘event’ early next year on HBO Max.
Now we’re seeing a little more of that tonal change with a black and white trailer that contains a few moments of that extra footage and some of the redesigned CGI-effects as Snyder tweeted a black and white version of the new trailer across the interwebs.
HBO-Max also released the colour version of the trailer. You can see both versions below…
