It seems Joker might be helping Batman in some manner to deal with Darkseid's arrival, and, according to Snyder, that is the only new piece of storyline added to his film through the recent reshoots.
Previously, in a comment on Instagram, Justice League stunt performer Nick McKinless revealed that there was apparently an entire fight sequence between Ares and a younger Darkseid when he first invaded Earth in the Zack Snyder Cut. "Avengers" director Joss Whedon was subsequently hired to "finish" the film for Snyder in time for that date, but instead he ended up overseeing extensive reshoots meant to drastically change the story - again, while still gunning for its original release date. Despite initial reports to the contrary, that additional photography happened recently, with original stars Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Gal Gadot, and Amber Heard returning as Batman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, and Mera, respectively.
"In the end, it's gonna probably be about four or five minutes of additional photography", Snyder shares. So it's no accident that Snyder picked the exact same date to premiere his Snyder Cut trailer, a black-and-white version of a two-and-a-half-minute teaser that HBO Max debuted in August. Unless this is for the weirdest group shot we've ever seen, there's no way that there's enough time for any properly meaningful scenes with all of them. "He's a road-weary Joker", the director teased.
Though the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign wanted the release of Snyder's Justice League, they had also done some great work raising money for the AFSP or the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in tribute of Snyder's late daughter Autumn.
Snyder's Justice League may not be getting released as a full movie, but it will be coming to streaming on HBO Max, where it will air in four parts, as opposed to the single-length, but six "chapter" version Snyder had initially envisioned for his final cut of the film, which clocks in at roughly four hours. During the very first 20 to 25 million bucks remained in the discussion, ought to it be also $ 70 million.
