ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE Confirmed To Include A Mind-Blowing Surprise Cameo - SPOILERS

ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE Confirmed To Include A Mind-Blowing Surprise Cameo - <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

Zack Snyder has confirmed that he's reshot the ending of his version of Justice League, and that it's going to include a big surprise! Find out more details on what that will entail after the jump...

Zack Snyder had ambitious plans for the Justice League franchise before Warner Bros. started to interfere, including a two-part movie which would have seen Darkseid take over the Earth before the team travelled back in time to make things right.

We won't get to see all of that in the upcoming "Snyder Cut," but there are likely to be elements of it thanks to the filmmaker's recent reshoots, and it sounds like the the filmmaker may have found a way to deliver an ending he feels the fans deserve. 

In a new piece at Vanity Fair, it's revealed that Snyder "has reshot the ending with a hero cameo that will blow hard-core fans’ minds."

Let the speculation commence, eh? It goes without saying that the first name that comes to mind is Green Lantern, especially as we've seen merchandise with that character's logo (not to mention a recent poster teasing the hero). 

That would be pretty mind-blowing, but what would really knock our socks off is that rumour about Ryan Reynolds returning as Hal Jordan panning out. 2011's Green Lantern was a disappointment, but a lot of fans out there would love to see Reynolds get one more shot at playing the character.

There are other possibilities, of course, but with Martian Manhunter confirmed to appear, Green Lantern could be this surprise hero who shows up to meet the team in Justice League's closing moments. Needless to say, March 18th really can't get here soon enough.

of Will Beall's Justice League screenplay! 

10. Batman And Superman Are Allies

Superman is dead when the Snyder Cut begins, but in Beall's version, the Man of Steel is good friends with Batman. They know each other's secret identities, and meet in a Metropolis diner for a catch-up. 

Before heading to Central City to recruit the Flash, there's a battle in Lexcorp Tower against KGBeast and Killer Croc to deal with. Lex Luthor is in the midst of attempting to buy Kryptonite from the former, but they're all interrupted by the arrival of Desaad, one of Darkseid's most loyal followers. 

He kills Croc, and makes off with the Kryptonite. 

This action-packed, character-heavy opening doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of what's to come, however...
 

9. Darkseid Is The Film's Big Bad

34983943321w344r134

Steppenwolf doesn't get as much to do in this Justice League, and Darkseid is the lead baddie from the start. The film wastes no time in introducing the ruler of Apokolips, with the opening scene taking place on the villain's home planet. 

Snyder and Terrio clearly had a different idea for how Darkseid's big screen introduction would work, as he's only expected to make a cameo appearance in the Snyder Cut. The reason for that is because he was supposed to take center stage in the Justice League: Part 2 film Warner Bros. initially greenlit.

Had Beall's script been used, Darkseid might have beaten Thanos to theaters. 

While this film may have had Darkseid in spades, there's one member of the League who was set to be M.I.A.
 

8. There's No Aquaman

34983943321w344r1344

Jason Momoa's Aquaman has become a firm fan-favorite, and his solo film grossed over $1 billion globally in 2018.

Beall, however, had no intention of using the King of Atlantis. While there are a lot of other heroes in this Justice League, it seems the writer couldn't quite figure out how to bring this divisive superhero to the screen. Remember, when Beall was penning this screenplay, it was before DC Comics reinvented Arthur Curry with the New 52 reboot.

As you'll soon come to see, it would have been tricky to squeeze Aquaman into this story, because Beall instead focused on characters who Snyder overlooked in his film.

Chief among them is Green Lantern...
 

7. Green Lantern/Hawkman Team-Up

Kwzvifya o

There was a huge cosmic element to Beall's Justice League screenplay, with Green Lantern John Stewart and Hawkman teaming up in an outer space nightclub to stop Kanjar Ro from helping Dessad weaponize the Kryptonite he stole from Lex Luthor and KGBeast.

We don't get a Hal Jordan mention, and this film was presumably set in a separate world to 2011's Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds. 

While all this is happening, there's a subplot about Amanda Waller and the Department of Metahuman. Interestingly, she has her own team made up of Tattooed Man, Copperhead, Cheetah, and Solomon Grundy (we'll come back to them).

Also on Earth, Superman is kidnapped by Steppenwolf and his Parademons, and taken back to Apokolips. 
 

6. Massacre On Oa

Batman heads to Themyscira to seek Wonder Woman's help, and we learn they have a romantic history.

John Stewart, meanwhile, returns to Earth, and and meets with Bruce, Diana, and the Flash in the Batcave (which is packed full of Easter Eggs, including The Penguin's Umbrella and multiple Batmobiles and Batsuits). 

As the team formulates a plan to rescue Superman, John heads back to Oa, only to find the planet decimated by Darkseid. Katma Tui, Kilowag, Guy Gardner, Salakk, and Tomar-Re are all dead, a sign Beall wasn't exactly thinking ahead to their potential future in the DC Universe...for now, anyway. 

With no Green Lantern Corps standing in his way, Darkseid heads to Earth. 
 

5. Batman v Superman

Dsrbjtc1 o

Superman has fallen under Darkseid's control, and a fight with Batman ensues. 

Like in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, the Caped Crusader dons a special armored Batsuit to take on the Man of Steel in hand-to-hand combat. 

It's Wonder Woman who eventually figures out how to free Superman from Darkseid, and the hero quickly rejoins the League to repel the villain's invasion. However, things get a little strange at this point in Beall's Justice League film because Kal-El finds himself thrust eleven years into the future after travelling through a Boom Tube.

This has to be where Snyder and Terrio got the idea to tackle a "Knightmare" future in their version.
 

4. A Desolate Future

U3geltzc o

Superman learns that Darkseid has wiped out 80% of the planet's population, and Diana and Bruce are leading what's left of the human resistance. 

Batman is Wonder Woman's second in command, and they have a son: Clark Wayne. 

It seems Superman's disappearance through the Boom Tube left Earth defenseless, and even Lex Luthor is now aligned with the heroes. "Batman's Berzerkers" is a team made up of Deathstroke, Captain Boomerang, Huntress, and Cheetah, essentially meaning the Dark Knight is the leader of the Suicide Squad.

The survivors are based in Superman's Fortress of Solitude. 
 

3. Time-Travel

34983943321w344r13444445

We know Batman and Cyborg are responsible for sending the Flash back in time in the SnyderVerse, though it's likely those scenes were being saved for the sequel. 

In Beall's film, it's Lex Luthor who figured out how to send Barry Allen eleven years into the past. 

The Future Flash arrives on Earth prior to Darkseid's invasion, and dies in his younger self's arms shortly after warning the younger Barry about what's to come for the League.

After warning his teammates, the stage is set for an epic battle...
 

2. Epic Final Battle

34983943321w344r134444454

Superman has already been taken to Apokolips at this point, so Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern travel to the planet to stop Darkseid before he can brainwash their teammate. 

Superman is rescued, and the heroes take on the villain and his forces. 

The Green Lantern Corps - who are alive in this timeline -  soon arrive to lend a helping hand, as do the Amazon warriors from Themyscira. As you might expect, the heroes emerge victorious from the battle, and stop that desolate future from ever becoming a reality. 

Darkseid may be defeated, but there's another foe waiting in the wings.
 

1. President Lex Luthor

34983943321w344r1344444543

Lex Luthor is planning to run for President, a nice hint at how his story played out in the comics. However, there's one final surprise that could set the stage for a Superman spinoff film. 

Lex receives a message from his future self, and learns that Superman is, in fact, Clark Kent.

Beall's screenplay doesn't reveal what the villain does with that information, but there are plenty of ways that could have been addressed. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Lex deduces that himself, and the pay off wasn't quite what a lot of fans out there hoped for.

Beall's film sounds like it could have been a fun ride, but how much Snyder and Terrio borrowed is currently up in the air.
