In a recent question-and-answer session hosted by Cinemark Playa Vista, Zack Snyder showed a photo of Wayne T. Carr dressed as the famous Green Lantern, John Stewart, on his phone. Twitter user Ishaan Sangha shared a screenshot of Snyder showing the photo. The nature of the picture in a picture means the quality isn’t great, but you can see Carr in the iconic green and black costume, holding his Green Lantern power ring.
We’re probably not going to see an official version of this image, as John Stewart was cut from Zack Snyder’s Justice League at the behest of Warner Bros. As reported by Screen Rant, the studio has intentions for future Green Lantern projects and therefore requested that Stewart be removed from Justice League in order to save this side of the DC Universe for other films.
Stewart’s small role at the end of Justice League has been replaced by Martian Manhunter, played by Harry Lennix. However, as Snyder showed during Q&A, this change came after his Justice League covers previously filmed the scene with Wayne T. Carr as John Stewart.
Zack Snyder recently expressed his frustration with Warner Bros., saying the studio was “aggressively anti-Snyder.” To see what we’ve done with his four-hour superhero epic, check out our Justice League review by Zack Snyder.
