Martian Manhunter in «Zack Snyder’s Justice League» The appearance of the DC hero explained — cinema news

Warner Bros. / Netflix

In » Zack Snyder’s Justice League «, not only do numerous central characters get more screen time and a better developed background story, thanks to a running time of more than four hours, Zack Snyder also has the space to position two more heroes: In addition to Ryan Choi ( Ryan Zheng ), who was to become the shrinking superhero Atom, the Martian Manhunter ( Harry Lennix ) appears very prominently in two places . And this gig doesn’t come out of nowhere.

Back in October 2019 (!), Snyder revealed his plans for Lennix’s character, General Swanwick , who in his previous appearances in Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice appeared to be just a high-ranking officer. Back then, Snyder posted a series of storyboard images on his favorite social media platform, Vero, which already showed the first Martian Manhunter scene from Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

If you have the so-called Snyder Cut fresh in your head, you can clearly see the scene in which Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Martha Kent (Diane Lane) talk about the death of Superman (Henry Cavill) on the drawn pictures – only Martha isn’t Martha at all, it’s the Martian Manhunter .

This is the Martian Manhunter

His abilities include shapeshifting in both Justice League and the DC Comics. In addition, J’onn J’onzz, as his real name is, has superhuman strength, speed and endurance, can fly and is a gifted telepath. As his superhero name suggests, he is actually from Mars («martian» is the English word for «Martian»), but is the last survivor of his people

In the comics, the Martian Manhunter is an integral part of the Justice League, and so would it be if Zack Snyder ever went ahead with his plans for Justice League 2 and Justice League 3 (which is very, very unlikely).

So the first scene reveals that he has been living on earth as Swanwick the whole time. In an interview with Variety , Lennix also said that even in Man Of Steel, there were scenes that suggested Snyder was planning a reveal.

So it was pretty predictable that Snyder would add the storyboard scene for his version of Justice League. The second appearance of the Martian Manhunter in the very last scene of the Snyder Cut is different.

Martian Manhunter instead of Green Lantern

In it, the alien Observer visits Bruce Wayne aka Batman ( Ben Affleck ) and compliments him on bringing the Justice League together. And as Snyder revealed to Vanity Fair , the end of «Zack Snyder’s Justice League» was supposed to feature a different character, Green Lantern.

«We did a version of that scene with Green Lantern, but the studio was really against it and said, ‘We really don’t want you to do Green Lantern,'» says Snyder. «So we made a deal and they let me do that instead.»

The Green Lantern that Snyder wanted to show (in the DC comics this hero name is borne by numerous characters) was John Stewart , who debuted in the early 1970s and is the first African-American DC superhero.

Incidentally, according to Snyder, the reason for the Green Lantern ban is that Warner and DC have their own plans for John Stewart and want to announce them themselves. It is conceivable, for example, that this refers to the plans for the film » Green Lantern Corps «, which has become very quiet, or that John Stewart is to appear in the » Green Lantern » series for HBO Max.
