New Zack Snyder’s Justice League TV Spot Features New Footage of Joker & Darkseid

A new Zack Snyder’s Justice League TV spot for the highly-anticipated HBO Max DC movie has surfaced online through Twitch, featuring lots of new footage. The new video highlights the film’s fan-favorite villains including a new brief glimpse of Jared Leto’s Joker and Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke as well as Ray Porter’s Darkseid, who reveals his plans of conquering all existence. It also featured a new look at Ben Affleck’s Knightmare Batman and Ezra Miller’s Flash in his Knightmare costume. Check out the video in the player below!

One of the major story aspects that was cut from the 2017 version is The Knightmare sequence which was first set up in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Knightmare timeline is known as an alternate dark timeline of a dystopian future where Darkseid had successfully conquered earth.

Justice League will be hitting HBO Max as a four-hour movie on March 18. It was originally revealed at DC FanDome that the movie will release on HBO Max in 2021 by being broken up into four one-hour parts that will also be released as one four-hour film, but will now solely be released as a one-off film instead of the four-part series. Snyder says that there will be no after-credits scenes.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League reportedly cost around $70 million in order to properly finish the editing and visual effects of the director’s original vision, as well as the additional photography. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut. 

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 Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray 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.
