Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be a massive four-part event when it releases in 2021, but according to Snyder himself, there will only be around four minutes of newly filmed footage.We learned from recent reports that several actors are returning to shoot new scenes for the Snyder Cut, including Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Amber Heard (Mera) and Joe Manganiello (Coup deadly). Additionally, Jared Leto has been said to be reprising his role as Joker for covers. Still, it looks like the new footage doesn’t contribute much to Snyder Cut’s extended runtime.
“I’ll say by the end it’s probably going to be about four or five minutes of extra photography for the whole movie,” Snyder said during a recent appearance on Beyond the Trailer (via Collider). “In the four hours of Justice League, maybe four minutes. “Given the number of actors Snyder is bringing back for his director’s cut, not to mention the amount of money invested in the project, it’s surprising to hear that the covers will only be a few minutes of extra footage.
So far we’ve had a few glimpses of the Snyder Cut, including the very first moving clip of the black Superman suit, a full trailer, and our first look at the Martian Manhunter design. Hopefully we’re about to get a fresh take on Snyder’s vision to celebrate three years of Justice League 2017.
