Jason Momoa was among the first on Thursday to post a teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's cut of "Justice League," followed by the director himself who tweeted the promo for his take on the 2017 superhero movie. The 54-year-old wrote: "First ever sneak peek at JL". He also told fans to "get ready for more" at the upcoming DC FanDome event. They were not the only fans overcome at laying eyes on Snyder Cut footage, with ChicCattLady2 posting "Omg we've waited so long for this!" But after Batman v Superman disappointed, Warner Bros. opted to promote Darkseid's lieutenant Steppenwolf as the main villain for the movie. But if it didn't feel real before, this footage makes it feel more tangible, and distinguishes it quite a bit from the theatrical cut, even with just a few seconds of footage.
In the meantime, Snyder is working on finishing the editing of the movie with a rumored budget of $20-$30 million.
But somewhere between Zack Snyder beginning Justice League and Joss Whedon taking the reins and finishing the film, after a tragic death in Snyder's family, it appears a whole evil big bad villain was filmed and left on the chopping block. Snyder has said that we have only seen about a quarter of what he shot.
Snyder's Justice League teaser drop is clearly having the desired effect on #ReleasetheSnyderCut faithful, whipping them into a full-on frenzy on Twitter. Be sure to check out the teaser for yourself from the HBO Max YouTube channel.
