Director Zack Snyder recently began filming new scenes for “Justice League: The Snyder Cut” which is scheduled to release on HBO Max in 2021 as a four-part limited series. In a new interview we learn that there is only about 4 extra minutes of new shots added to the film.
Also, Snyder revealed that the new footage will be very limited stating, “I will say that in the end it’s going to probably be about four minutes or five minutes of additional photography for the entire movie. In the four hours that is Justice League, maybe four minutes.”
What do you think? Is that enough new footage to make you want to see his re-release? Let us know below.
In addition to restoring his original vision for the film, Snyder has reportedly brought back in actors Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher to film the new scenes in their respective roles as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Superman/Clark Kent, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, and Cyborg/Vistor Stone.
Snyder has also recently talked about the addition of actor Jared Leto as the Joker to the film revealing that the Clown Prince of Crime will have a new “road-weary” appearance since he was last seen in 2016’s “Suicide Squad”.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists 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.
The Justice League screenplay is by Chris Terrio, story by Chris Terrio & Zack Snyder, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film’s producers are Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, with executive producers Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas, Jim Rowe, Ben Affleck, Wesley Coller, Curtis Kanemoto, and Chris Terrio.
