Zack Snyder continues releasing character-centric trailers for Zack Snyder’s Justice League with Cyborg’s teaser focusing on his Knightmare Vision.
The latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League focuses on Cyborg’s Knightmare vision. In about a week, the much-clamored Snyder Cut will finally release on HBO Max and with that, marketing for the project is currently in high gear. Continuing his series of character-centric teasers, the director released the newest one that centers on Victor Stone.
Justice League’s theatrical cut was significantly different from Snyder’s original plan for the film. The changes were done after he had to step away from it due to a personal tragedy and was replaced by Joss Whedon who manned extensive reshoots and post-production. While the general story of Justice League changed and it had rippling effects on the characters’ personal arcs in it, no one was affected more than Cyborg’s story. Instead of being the heart of the narrative, his origin story and overall involvement was cut making him more like a plot device than a key player. With Snyder’s initial vision being restored through the HBO Max project, expect that Victor’s full story will finally play out on the screen.
Cyborg’s Knightmare vision is teased in the latest Zack Snyder’s Justice League trailer. Posted on the upcoming project’s official Twiter account, the clip features the hero seeing his mother, father, and himself fully physically abled. The clip also reveals Cyborg debuting his full helmet in action — something that’s not in the Justice League theatrical cut.
The Cyborg trailer comes on the heels of a string of teasers for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Flash; Victor’s clip is the final one to be released from the series spearheaded by Snyder. Prior to its roll out, however, Zack Snyder’s Justice League was temporarily available to stream on HBO Max when viewers attempted to watch Tom & Jerry. It’s uncertain what exactly happened but it was eventually taken off the air. For his part, Ray Fisher, who’s one of the most vocal supporters of the Snyder Cut long before it was greenlit responded by encouraging people to watch the film when it debuts officially on March 18.
The Knightmare sequence in the Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be the biggest change between it and the film’s theatrical version. The whole dystopian future element was previously set-up in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice but didn’t play into Whedon’s cut of the narrative. Now, it’s going to be an important factor in Snyder’s overall vision for the DCEU, unfortunately, Warner Bros. does not have any interest in continuing his plan.
