Zack Snyder Unveils Black Suit Superman in New Justice League Clip
Zack Snyder finally unleashed the black suit Superman upon the world during Justice Con — and the results are pretty damned awesome! The clip in question can be seen below and features the Man of Steel speaking with Alfred in the Bat Cave, a scene that was featured as a deleted scene on the theatrical release of Justice League‘s blu-ray, albeit with Superman in his traditional garb. Of note, the scene features the iconic Man of Steel theme… which is really exciting! Check out the scene below.
Snyder was among several guests during the day-long Justice Con panel that also featured Ray Fisher and Jay Olivia. Snyder also unveiled a new Justice League t-shirt, but seemed hesitant to reveal much more likely due to the upcoming DC Fandom event that will take place in August.
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.
