Although the film market in 2020 is quite bleak due to the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic, DC Films and Warner Bros. still know how to make the fans excited. One of the biggest surprises they’ve announced this past year is Justice League, director Zack Snyder’s version that will premiere on HBO in March 2021. The first trailer of this blockbuster soon after was also posted, bringing many completely new scenes compared to the 2017 release.
Not only owning movies that have never appeared in the version of director Joss Whedon, Snyder also makes the audience curious as they continuously include a series of new characters in his passionate project. In addition to the familiar main cast, Justice League this time also welcomes many other notable faces, the most prominent being the Joker (Jared Leto), who was “summoned” by Snyder at the last minute to serve. for his brand new script ideas.
Joker (Jared Leto)
In 2016, Jared Leto tried his hand as Batman’s arch enemy in blockbuster Suicide Squad. However, as soon as the film premiered, the actor, as well as many people in the industry, spoke up to Warner Bros. has cut out too many of his scenes, making Joker become quite blurred on the big screen and not appreciated by professionals and audiences.
By the end of 2020, Leto continues to surprise when confirmed to appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League as the familiar Joker. This is a completely new detail, was devised by Snyder at the last minute and not in the original script idea of his original. Currently, it is not clear what role the Joker will play in the overall plot of this blockbuster, but perhaps finally the audience will see the Prince of Criminals interact directly with the DCEU’s Batman, instead. just chasing flashes like in Suicide Squad. And unknown, Robin’s death (revealed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) will also be explained more clearly thanks to the appearance of Leto.
Darkseid (Ray Porter)
If Jared Leto’s Joker has a second chance to appear in the DCEU, this will be Darkseid’s first time stepping on the big screen in this universe. The brutal lord of the planet Apokolips is the creation of legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby in 1970, famous for his ambition to conquer the universe with violence, wherever he goes, bury all dreams and hope. hope there. Darkseid will also play the main villain in Justice League this time and will be played by actor Ray Porter.
Desaad (Peter Guinness)
Any arrogant, power-hungry tyrant who wants to do things needs powerful right hands. And in the case of Darkseid, his closest servant, none other than that, was Desaad, who was brainwashed and manipulated by his master since he was a child, to now become. 1 brutal torture expert.
Nuidis Vulko (Willem Dafoe)
After the success of Aquaman (2018), Willem Dafoe will continue to return as Nuidis Vulko – Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) ‘s master and army officer in Snyder’s Justice League. The veteran actor who has been nominated for the Oscars many times is not a strange face in the superhero movie line, because he played the Green Goblin in the Spider-Man trilogy of director Sam Raimi. In fact, Dafoe was in the Justice League in 2017, but his segments were cut before the movie came out.
The Atom (Ryan Zheng)
Besides Willem Dafoe, Ryan Zheng (as Atom) also owns many scenes cut from the previous release. Zack Snyder will take advantage of these scenes in his blockbuster without having to return or shoot any new footage.
Elinore Stone (Karen Bryson)
Elinore Stone is the mother of Victor Stone / Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and used to play a very important role in the original script concept to build the psychology of Fisher’s character. However, like the two colleagues above, Bryson’s role was cut from the theatrical release in 2017, making the story of Cyborg less effective as expected. With the trailer that Snyder revealed earlier, audiences saw Elinore Stone cheering for his son in a rugby match, ensuring that the character will appear in the upcoming Justice League.
Iris West (Kiersey Clemons)
Like Cyborg, the story of Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) is not exploited too deeply in Justice League (2017), and does not mention Iris West – the lover of the DC super speed guy. Before that in 2016, Kiersey Clemons successfully casted the role for the role of The Flash’s own movie, and filmed a small cameo in Justice League. However, it was not until now that she had the opportunity to go to the big screen in director Zack Snyder’s version.
Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix)
The separate movie for J’onn J’onzz (Martian Manhunter) is also one of the projects that are extremely anticipated by fans. Many theories are that Calvin Swanwick (Harry Lennix), the character who appeared in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the alien man who can change shape into anyone. That was also Zack Snyder’s original plan to build the DCEU and most likely will be revealed in the upcoming Justice League.
