How would the Avengers: End Game look like if it was directed by Zack Snyder?
What not did the last week’s megahit virtual convention, DC FanDome event bring for us? From trailers, teasers, insights, release dates and answer to some of the most asked questions, the event has left the DC fans awestruck and all hyped up for the event’s part 2 release which streams September 12. One big announcement made at the event was the unveiling of Justice League: Zack Snyder’s Cut first trailer. The trailer couldn’t have been any better indeed, but a fan of the DC Extended Universe as well as the Marve Cinematic Universe has reimagined Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame in his own Snyder-esque presentation. What do we feel? Well, it is pretty awesome. Have a look at his version below:

Mostly featuring scenes that were cut out of the theatrical version of the movie, the Lisbon based film editor Lugga Leunnam did a pretty good job at making us all nostalgic about the world’s highest-earning film to the date. Taking Snyder’s filmography in his mind, he gave the trailer close-ups of character faces, slow-motion action clips, and adjusted the aspect ratio to match the Snyder Cut’s IMAX dimensions.
But what set the tone right was his pick of adding Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which was Zack Snyder featured in his cut of the Justice League trailer. The song seems to one of Snyder’s personal favorite pick when it comes to trailers. Even the trailer of his 2009 adaptation of Watchmen had the same track set. About picking the track again this time, Snyder said,
“It was two years ago… It’s a really personal song for the family, and for all of us. It’s something that I just felt that was right for this. That’s why. I just think that that song, in particular, really, for all of us, it has significance beyond just the movie. I think we all love the song and it just felt like, as I was trying to wrangle this whole thing into the ‘why’ of it, I just felt like that song was the right way to do it.”
An entreaty was passed to Zack Snyder to work on his cut of the film when a long-hyped social media campaign in 2017 took place. Due to a family tragedy, he quit the film during its making and the film was then handed over to Joss Whedon. Fans were quick to realize that Whedon’s work was nothing compared to what Snyder could’ve served them, hence evolved the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign.
As for the MCU, a whole new phase of their saga is set to begin. With Black Widow’s solo movie debut on 6 November 2020, Marvel will kick-off the fourth phase of their cinematic universe and will release multiple films in the coming year of 2021 starting off with Chloe Zao’s Eternals. With megastars in the film Eternals like Kit Harrington, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Kumail Nanjiani, the MCU is ready to welcome a new bunch of actors who will be carrying forward their esteemed name.
