Zack Snyder Shares Image of Steppenwolf from Justice League
This weekend, Zack Snyder teased fans with another image from his cut of Justice League, this time revealing an image of Steppenwolf in all his glory. Unfortunately, the image is fairly low quality, so it’s hard to make out too many details. Even so, it’s pretty awesome, especially compared to the character we saw in the theatrical cut of the film. Check out Snyder’s full Vero message below!
“Just working today pulled this out of the editorial sorry he’s Low resolution but I’ve seen him in all his hi-Rez glory and he’s a thing to behold quick question… how many [email protected]*ks do you think he gives ???” Snyder asked in the post.
One thing that stands out in the image is the time marker on the screen. As discovered by some of our more intrepid Twitter users out there, in the theatrical cut, this moment came roughly 20 minutes into the film, while in Snyder’s cut the time stamp reveals Steppenwolf makes his grand entrance at the hour mark. Or maybe those numbers (in the top left corner) confirm the series angle for Justice League that has been teased quite a bit. Or maybe they don’t mean anything at all, which is probably not true considering Snyder rarely adds details on accident.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will reportedly cost around $20-30 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects of the director’s original vision. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut. No new footage will be shot, however.
Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League, which features a screenplay from Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio, stars Affleck as Batman, Cavill as Superman, Gadot as Wonder Woman, Momoa as Aquaman, Miller as The Flash, Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Released in November 2017, the film earned mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, praising the action and performances from Gadot and Miller while criticizing every other aspect of the film, namely the inconsistent tone that many fault Joss Whedon (The Avengers) for after taking over directorial duties from Snyder. With a large budget of $300 million and a break-even point of $750 million, the film is considered a box office bomb having grossed only $658 million.
