Zack Snyder could seemingly take the story anywhere in his director's cut of Justice League, especially considering how expansive his original plans for the movie were. In addition to telling a story and bringing the titular team of heroes together, he was also doing world building for various franchises. This includes Wonder Woman and Aquaman, as well as projects that haven't come together just yet.
Not much is known about what the Snyder Cut's reshoots might entail, but a number of actors are reportedly returning to help the project come together as originally intended. Ben Affleck, Amber Heard, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher have all been reported as participating in said reshoots. Plus, even Jared Leto will be involved and playing his Suicide Squad version of Joker.
Fans have been wondering if Henry Cavill will be participating in reshoots, and once again playing Superman. The actor has denied his involvement thus far, but it seems logical that the full Justice League might need to be assembled. It all depends on his big his role is in the Snyder Cut, and how long it takes for Clark Kent to rise from the dead.
The Snyder Cut is expected to hit HBO Max sometime in 2021. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your trips to the movies next year.
