Zack Snyder’s like the Tupac of superhero movie directors. He keeps dropping footage and teasers of things cut by Warner Bros. from 2017’s Justice League, suggesting that there is a “Snyder Cut” of the movie in the can somewhere.
Two weeks ago we showed you an image of Prince Uxas of Apokolips (aka Darkseid) that Zack Snyder had revealed and talked about the line that gave us chills in the very first Comic-Con trailer (below). “No Protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall.. like all the others.”
The line was recorded and part of a story sequence that saw a young Prince Uxas of Apokolips (Darkseid) go toe to toe with Ares.
Well now Snyder has given us a clearer picture and he looks pretty damn cool. Who else wants a Snyder Cut of Justice League?!

DuVernay sneakily acknowledged the news on social media while accepting a thanks from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins about A Wrinkle in Time, promising to “look forward to seeing [her] around the block soon:”
