Justice League: The Snyder Cut
The DC Justice League film came out in 2017, but the original director Zack Snyder quit during the editing when his daughter died. Some fans were disappointed with the finished film that Joss Whedon (The avengers) took over, the end result left many league fans unhappy.
Snyder’s cut will be coming soon to HBO Max, and DC FanDome’s preview gave a glimpse of that long-awaited version, which will run in four one-hour parts. It will be released sometime in 2021, and Snyder promised fans outside the U.S. that they are working on a way to release it globally.
The panel revealed Barry Allen’s new suit, which was made by Batman. Director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Christina Hodson (who wrote Birds of Prey and Bumblebee) also confirmed that the sprinter’s film will feature Flash traveling back in time to change the DC Multiverse. It will be released sometime in 2022.
We also received indications that this opens the possibility of revisiting classic DC movies, with Danny Elfman’s Batman theme playing in the background. Concept art also showed Flash teaming up with Michael Keaton’s version of the Dark Knight: the 1989 Batman logo can be seen on his costume.
James Gunn revealed all the characters of his next film, The Suicide Squad. Idris Elba is playing Bloodsport; wrestler and actor John Cena plays Peacekeeper; and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson will play Blackguard.
