Zack Snyder Reveals His Cut “Justice League” Cameo

From time to time directors like to put themselves in their movies. Alfred Hitchcock would often make a cameo appearance in his own films, M. Night Shyamalan has appeared in a number of his own films, and Zack Snyder has revealed that one of the many scenes left on the cutting room floor from his “Justice League” movie included his own cameo appearance.

There have been many discussions about the amount of content left out of the final cut of “Justice League”, and it seems there was a scene in which Lois Lane (Amy Adams) exits a coffee shop, looking up in the sky… and sitting inside the coffee shop we see Zack Snyder.

Labeled “BvS reference context”, Zack Snyder posted the image on his Vero social media account.

I am getting quite tired of all of these Zack snyder posts… He has an enviable position now that the movie flopped, to say “I would have done so much better”… It’s very easy to drop “ideas” and images, and concepts, and even a trailer… but to put it together in a cohesive entertaining movie is a different task all together.. At some point, someone has to call him out… there must have been a reason the Executives called his movie “unwatchable”. there must have been a reason Jos whedon was given a screenwriter’s credit. And if Snyder believed in… Read more »

“Instead, it reads like a bitter disgruntled ex-employee trying to rub a failure in the face of his previous employers…” I don’t get attitude like that in any way.” If fact this is the first info from ZS that we’ve heard in a while. I for one am glad it’s(JL), still relevant to an extent. It just becomes more apparent that his story line was butchered to the max. Unfortunately we still don’t have a concrete answer as to why! “Unwatchable”, …was a very convenient reason by the WB to mutilate ZS’ers original version which was supposed to be a… Read more »

I wish everyone would just move on from this. What’s the point In constantly revisiting this if we’re never going to see his version? The studio and films are already heading in a different direction, so again I say, what’s the point? Is it a direction I agree with? No, not really, but it’s the reality of the situation. They had ample time (the studio and Snyder) to get it right the first time. BvS was a mixed bag at best so he was obviously let go for a reason. I don’t buy into this whole ‘oh his vision would… Read more »

“don’t need any more Superman films without dialogue, character development and lack of personality”……Well I never got that. Thought there was plenty. And in all fairness, a lot of people thought they got enough of it right.

As for moving on. It’s not like were being treated to anything new regarding Superman. Keeping a bit of it alive is better than nothing. Unless we all want to do nothing but continue to bring up on a weekly basis 40 year old STM.

As much as I love the original, I’ve never been one to clamor for that version of the character in this modern age, in fact I’ve always wanted the Byrne era version for any new adaptation. Honestly I’m glad that you enjoyed Snyder’s version, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the only reason JL and especially BvS get any goodwill from me is because of my pre-existing love of the characters. I am and will always be a Superman/dc Guy first, but when the deaths in Infinity War move me more than the death of my… Read more »

WOW, you articulated my thoughts so well… There is no way that Snyder’s “vision” would have captured the emotion, the weight, and the pure joy of being Superman the way STM (and even Smallville, and even Lois and Clark did)… a big part of these movies has to be “wish fulfillment” – you should WANT to be Superman in the film… Bryan Singer got this wrong, and so did Snyder.. Yes we all feel robbed by JL, but Snyder, with his repeated posts is trying to assume the position that we were robbed of his vision… but we were just… Read more »

After Superman Returns,….that everyone acts like never existed, ZS was hired to re-boot Superman. Take it to a totally new and different, for this day and age place. He did that and more. BvS like it or not did not fail. At this point no one really knows if his JL would have been better or not. But with all the re-shooting that was done, I think it’s fair to say they did what they needed to do to make it totally different and to a point, almost end what they started. For me the ending of JL and especially… Read more »

I don’t think Snyder’s JL would have been worth watching. His biggest problem is his complete departure from the characters and the utter hoplessness the tone of his movies have. I like MOS, it is a solid starting point. At the end he was on his way to becoming the Superman we all know and love. Then comes BVS, a complete 180 from the end of MOS. Superman is a manic depressive with almost no dialogue, he doesn’t smile at all. He looks borderline suicidal half the time and his entire supporting cast is basically telling him to quit. Even… Read more »

in all fairness to @redcape, because I hope he doesn’t feel that we are ganging up on him, and I don’t anyone’s opinion should be “voted down” even if we disagree with him, his comments help keep our community alive and active, and as long as there is respect (which I feel this site has more than any – Must be Superman’s influence) these discussions can be very interesting. I will concede to Snyder that he probably had an incredible amount of studio input to deal with, something that James Wan and Patty Jenkins likely didn’t have to contend with… Read more »

Well I’m sure that ZS’ers JL would have continued in format from BvS. But the complete departure that you speak of was exactly what they wanted to do. You say, “the Superman we all know and love.” From when….1978???? I expected to see him in BvS as a continuation from MoS. Maybe not the exact story line we got. I for one LOVED the Batman! He didn’t “murder” anyone. In fact it was the best action packed version of Batman that we’ve seen so far! The warehouse beat down scene will never be duplicated. I appreciated that far more than… Read more »

Batman most definitely Killed KGBeast and the thugs in the car.

Killed,……yes. Murdered,….NO. And lets face it. Batman is on a level in which street thugs with every level of weaponry imaginable aren’t going to make deals. How ZS handled Batman was WAY more on par with actual Batman! But again,….if you want adolescent Batman then you might not like what we’ve seen. NOT ME! I can’t imagine a better and more realistic version of BATMAN!

What do you mean by adolescent Batman? What is your definition of ‘actual batman’? I don’t know what version of Batman you grew up with but I don’t recall many storylines where he commits vehicular homicide so recklessly. And remind me again what he was planning to do to superman? Brand him? Oh that’s right he was going to MURDER him… or at the very least attempt it. Homicidal batman is not real Batman. Not even in Dark Knight Returns did he try to kill Superman. Again if I want that stuff I’ll watch the punisher. And no I didn’t… Read more »

Your right that were not going to agree on the definition of murder and killing in these movies. To me it was mainly great action. That was the Batman that I wanted to see. And to be fair, you can analyze all movies and find certain events that might not be 100% sensible. After seeing BvS I thought his role was too toned down in JL. Another reason why I want to see ZS’ers take. Just something new at this point. Would I pay for it?? Yes i would!!

I think we agree on a lot of points.. I agree that ZS can deliver amazing scenes like the warehouse scene, and amazing visuals like Superman’s 1st flight… I would love to see him as a videographer (or whatever the role is to put together those things).. but like I said before, putting together scenes and images is not the same as telling a story in a movie… And trust me – as evidenced by by “videographer” comment – I have no idea what is actually involved in making a movie – but I have seen good ones, and ones… Read more »

Well trying to bring theses characters together is hard enough in the first place. And giving them all perfect continuity from comics to big screen(or TV) is all but impossible. There has to be some compromising. You look back at Burton’s Batman and in the second one he did the same thing. Two of the villains were disposed of at his hands. Only difference here(ZS), were the terrific visuals that went along with it. Too intense for some, I guess so. Superman, too intense as well? I guess for some. Bottom line is, still want to see his version of… Read more »

I think that the great irony is that there is value in what was left on the cutting room floor… I would pay for a disc, a book, whatever that actually looked at what happened, what the original plot was, what was in that video that the test groups saw (Deathstroke breaking Luthor out of Arkham). kind of like the “what happened to Superman Lives” documentary.. (which was fantastic BTW) if the goal was to make money – it seems like they are leaving some money on the floor along with probably hours of unused footage… at this point I… Read more »
