The version of Justice League released in theaters is credited with Zack Snyder as director, but he left the production before it was completed in the wake of a family tragedy, and in his absence, Joss Whedon was brought on to add nearly 80 new script pages and reshoot massive chunks of the movie. Start now Movie Title: Zack Snyder's Justice League Release Date: TBA Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, J.K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds, Amber Heard, Joe Morton Director: Zack Snyder Writer: Chris Terrio & Zack Snyder Last Updated: February 17, 2020 This was first revealed at his Director's Cuts event, but once again when he posted the image of film reels specifying the 214-minute runtime. The villain is Steppenwolf, he's trying to collect all the Mother Boxes, Batman puts together a team of heroes to stop him, and they resurrect Superman to aid in the final fight. There was also a looming threat of DC big bad Darkseid throughout the movie, from the history lesson through a cliffhanger endings setting up a sequel. There were also numerous characters totally cut from the movie, including Darkseid (Ray Porter), Iris West (Kiersey Clemons), Ryan Choi (Ryan Zheng), Elinore Stone (Karen Bryson), Nuidis Vulko (Willem Dafoe), Antiope (Robin Wright), Desaad (Peter Guinness), Ares (David Thewlis), and Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix). None of these count as "official" by any stretch, but there is a level of Snyder endorsement, making them at least worth mentioning. About The Author Screen Rant features editor and social media maven, Stephen has been writing for the site since 2016 and enjoys all manner of movies and TV, especially when it gives reason to obsess over minor irrelevant continuity minutiae. Stephen has been infatuated with movie magic on screen )and also peeking behind the scenes to demystify them) since wearing out his VHS copy of The Making of Star Wars when he was 7 years old and crazy about the deep lore of fictional universes ever since reading the Silmarillion when he was 9. When he's not deep in the weeds of Star Wars canon or breaking down the mechanics of fictional worlds like John Wick or Bright or proving the existence of the Snyder Cut, he's probably chasing after his two tiny hobbit children or getting himself into trouble on Twitter @smcolbert.
