Justice league that no one wanted
After Zack Snyder left his Justice league’s director chair, Joss Whedon was brought on board to replace him. Under Whedon, the film has undergone heavy alterations, and many storylines were removed. The Whedon’s version bagged negativity both critically and from fans.
Later, when the audience found out the existence of a Snyder’s version. They wanted to watch it at any cost and even started the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement.
With the massive response for this legitimate online movement from netizens, the cut is finally releasing on the HBO Max streaming service in 2021.
We want the Evil Warlord.
God of Evil, Darkseid is a universal tyrant who wants to subjugate all reality. He almost appeared in Justice League. For instance, in the flashback to the epic battle for the Mother Boxes.
But theatrical cut has no trace of Darkseid, and instead, Steppenwolf served as the movie’s big nemesis.
Also, as per the rumors, Snyder’s original version of the Justice League ends with Wonder Woman Killing Steppenwolf. Subsequently, Darkseid appears via a Boom Tube to threaten the heroes.
Moreover, Snyder’s original DCEU plans are to kill Lois Lane in the hands of Seid, setting up the Knightmare sequence we saw in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So there are a lot of scenes we would have seen Darkseid in, but sadly not. Well, we may get to see a few of them in the upcoming Snyder’s version.
