JUSTICE LEAGUE Director Zack Snyder Has Added Only Two New Scenes, One Of Which Features The Joker

Zack Snyder has clarified what Justice League's reshoots actually added to the "Snyder Cut," saying there are two new scenes, one of which revolves around Jared Leto's Joker. Hit the jump for details...

Much has been said about Justice League's second round of reshoots, and with names like Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller, and Amber Heard all reportedly involved, it feels like they're going to add a lot to the movie. However, in a new interview with Comic Book Debate, Zack Snyder pointed out that he's only actually shot two additional scenes for the DC Comics adaptation. 

"A very small portion of the movie is the new stuff that I shot," Snyder says. "Like 80-something percent of the movie has never been seen by anyone, visual effects wise, and that's not even including the scenes that you guys have never seen that don't have visual effects. That part's really exciting, and I can't wait for everyone to experience this giant scale adventure the way I intended."

Snyder would go on to say that he assembled the cast to shoot one sequence which has not been revealed, and another which brings Jared Leto back as The Joker. 

"First of all, let's just clarify, there's like two bits that I added. One bit that I had really sort of hoped to shoot in post but never got the chance to, and then one scene with Jared. This whole little piece with Jared. The truth is, the rest of the four hours of the movie are really just what I shot."

"The truth is I was in a struggle with the studio, you know, and famously we had a lot of stuff we had to do, and make it funny, and all that stuff," the filmmaker continued. "I just kind of, in a slightly subversive way, just kept also doing my thing at the same time so I would have, what I believed would be closer to what I wanted to do without any influence."

If we had to hazard a guess, that mystery scene could involve Martian Manhunter, a cameo we know Snyder hoped to shoot for the theatrical cut. Alternatively, it might feature characters like Green Lantern or Deathstroke, or even something that wraps up the director's vision for the DC Extended Universe.

the key Justice League members in the comic books!

40. Stargirl

Stargirl

Recruited to be the face of the government-sanctioned Justice League of America, Stargirl quickly proved to her teammates that she was a real hero and worthy of carrying Starman's legacy. 

39. Hawkgirl

Hawkgirl

We've seen a number of different versions of this character over the years and while many of them have been part of the League, most fans know her best from the Justice League Unlimited series.

38. Catwoman

Catwoman

Selina Kyle had a very brief stint as a member of the Justice League of America after being hired by Amanda Waller and A.R.G.U.S. and she did well as a counterpoint to the Dark Knight. 

37. Power Ring

Power-Ring

A fairly new addition to the Justice League, Jessica Cruz was cursed with a ring from an alternate Earth which feeds on her fear. With some help from her fellow heroes, she's battled to overcome that. 
 

36. John Constantine

Constantine

John Constantine is happiest when he's working alone but when the stakes are high enough, the smoking Englishman never hesitates to join up with the rest of the Justice League Dark. 

35. Huntress

Huntress

The latest iteration of this character is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman from an alternate Earth but regardless of which version we're talking about, she's often been key to this team.

34. Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)

Garnder

An argument could be made that Guy Gardner is the least popular human member of the Green Lantern Corps but it's always been fun watching him come to blows with longtime rival Batman!

33. Mr. Miracle

Miracle

Brought up on Apokolips and surrounded by horrors thanks to his adoptive father Darkseid, Mr. Miracle ultimately fled from his father and is now one of the greatest escape artists in the DC Universe.

32. Green Lantern (Simon Baz)

Lantern

Mistakenly viewed as a terrorist, Simon Baz had to do more than most heroes to prove himself and while the team had some doubts at first, he's now a valued member of the Justice League. 

31. Swamp-Thing

Swamp

Alec Holland was a botanist transformed into Swamp-Thing after his death and he since worked to protect the world (and plant life) as one of the strongest members of the Justice League Dark.
 

30. Red Tornado

Red-TOrndao

An android created by the supervillian T.O. Morrow to infiltrate the Justice Society of America, he soon saw the error of his ways and became an iconic and pivotal part of this iconic group. 
 

29. Vibe

Vibe

Vibe has an awesome set of powers which include jumping between dimensions and being able to blast enemies off their feet with vibrational waves so you can see why he was recruited to the JLA! 

28. Orion

Dr-Fate

The son of Darkseid was given away as a child and that meant he grew up to become a hero as New Genesis' greatest defender. If it means taking down his father, Orion will always help the League. 

27. Dr. Fate

Supes

The "Sorcerer Supreme" of the DC Universe, we've seen him working alongside both the JSA and JLA over the years. He was a staple of the team in the 80s and 90s and has helped them a lot since too. 
 

26. Vixen

Vixen

Vixen has served as both a member of the Justice League and Suicide Squad and her abilities allow her to wield the powers of any animal that has walked or evolved on Earth through the Tantu totem.

25. Lex Luthor

Lex

The fact he spent so many years trying to destroy the League means that Lex Luthor simply can't rank higher because while he did some good, that didn't last and he blackmailed his way on to the team!

24. The Atom

Atom

Another hero who multiple characters have held the mantle of over the years, Ray Palmer is by far the most popular and didn't hesitate to join the Justice League when the team came calling. 

23. Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner)

Rayner

After the fall of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Kyle Rayner was chosen to protect Earth and while his role within the League was limited, he never once let the team down. 

22. Firestorm

Firestorm

A number of different heroes have combined to make Firestorm over the years and this walking nuclear reactor has consistently proven that his powers make him damn near unstoppable. 
 

21. Zatanna

Zatanna

Zatanna may actually be part of the Justice League Dark team but she first served in the Justice League of America and her powerful spells mean she's capable of taking down even Superman!

20. Supergirl

Supergirl

Superman's cousin crashed to Earth as a teenager and various iterations of the character have all played some sort of role within the League at various points since her introduction. 

19. Batgirl

Batgirl

An honorary member of the League, Barbara Gordon may not have accompanied the team on too many adventures but it was as Oracle that she was perhaps one of their greatest allies.

18. Phantom Stranger

Stranger

The Phantom Stranger only tends to appear when events of great magnitudes necessitate his direct involvement but that's led to him working alongside the League on a number of occasions.
 

17. Elongated Man

Elongated-Man

Not to be mistaken with another stretchy superhero on this list, the Elongated Man is a top-notch Private Eye who has been right there alongside the League to face some of their greatest threats.
 

16. Blue Beetle

Beetle

He may have a reputation as something of a prankster but Ted Kord's scientific genius means he's single-handedly saved the day on more than one occasion and has proved himself to be invaluable.

15. Booster Gold

Booster

Arriving in the 21st Century to become the hero he never was in his own time, Booster Gold has a cocky attitude but has proven himself a valuable asset to the team more than once. 

14. Plastic Man

Plastic-Man

You probably think we're joking but despite his daft appearance and wacky powers, this reformed criminal has been a valuable member of the League and is more powerful than he lets on.

13. Cyborg

Cyborg11

Victor Stone was once a member of the Teen Titans but The New 52 changed that and he's since become a key part of this team as they're in desperate need of his firepower and technical know how.

12. Shazam

Shazam

The young Billy Batson only needs to utter a single word to become Shazam and while he may be immature, his magical powers mean he's strong enough to take down even the Man of Steel. 

11. Green Lantern (John Stewart)

John-Stew

The man who held the Green Lantern mantle in the Justice League Unlimited animated series has resulted in him being considered THE Green Lantern in the eyes of many comic book fans. 

10. Green Arrow

Green-Arrow

Oliver Queen may have been snubbed by the Justice League when he attempted to join their ranks in "The New 52" but the Emerald Archer has previously been a much-needed member of the team.
 

9. Hawkman

hawman

The Savage Hawkman is infused with the mysterious Nth Metal and he's granted flight, strength and a living armour as a result. With a formidable set of powers, he often helps turn the tide in battle.
 

8. The Flash (Wally West)

Wally

Barry Allen may be considered The Flash but Wally West held the mantle for decades. With his best friend dead, he stepped up to become the new Fastest Man Alive and never let the team down.
 

7. Aquaman

Aquaman

Despite being considered a joke for years thanks to mainstream media, a much-needed makeover helped change that perception and he's now viewed as on of the DC Universe's biggest badasses.
 

6. Martian Manhunter

MM

The last surviving Martian, J'onn J'onzz's fight with the League at the start of "The New 52" meant he's only recently joined the team but he's been a faithful ally to them throughout DC history.
 

5. Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

Hal

While it's fair to say that Green Lantern will never get along with Batman, that's never stopped him from using his immeasurable willpower to protect his teammates and our planet. 
 

4. The Flash (Barry Allen)

Barry

The Scarlet Speedster is never one to shy away from racing into action and there's a good reason why he's such a beloved and respected member of the team, not to mention its fastest.
 

3. Wonder Woman

WW

Diana Prince is arguably the heart of the Justice League not to mention one of the team's bravest and most powerful members. Simply put, the League wouldn't be the same without her.
 

2. Batman

Batman

Batman doesn't have the same amazing abilities as his superpowered teammates but he compensates for that with an impressive array of weapons, vehicles, and unparalleled fighting skills.
 

1. Superman

Supes

The most powerful hero in the DC Universe could tackle pretty much any threat by himself but it says a lot about him that he doesn't mind turning to his teammates - and friends - for help saving the world.
