Breaking Down Zack Snyder’s JUSTICE LEAGUE Footage!

Even though it’s still a year and some change away, Justice League production sure is having fun, fun, fun! As they’re wrapping up shooting in the UK, Zack Snyder shared a super-fun behind-the-scenes celebration reel to show everyone how not-dark the new film will be. Seriously, look at all those grins! This is not a dark, heavy movie, we swear. Overbearing smiles aside, we’ve spent all morning digging in and finding all the secrets hidden in the deep, dark crevices of the clip, and here’s what we’ve found!

First up, about twenty seconds in, it looks like we’ve got some moments in the remnants of Wayne Manor (note the W and the broken up bricks on the ground). So it would make sense that he’d restore the place so he can have somewhere to crash before The Batman.  But will it be the official home base of the Justice League? We do see Batman bringing the team down in an elevator, sans cowl, but he might just be showing off. I mean, I would if I had a bat cave…

Out best guess is, however, that the Flying Fox will be their main chill zone. The BTS clip from Snyder shows a ton of hijinks on the Fox, which is coincidentally the same location we saw the Deathstroke footage shot. Later in the footage, we’ve got a bunch of mo-cap goons getting killed aboard the ship. Are these villains with the Terminator? Or, parademons, the movie’s main CG bad-guy fodder?

Speaking of surprising characters, are these two women catching a massive, falling CG object Amazonians or stuntwomen rehearsing? Our money’s on Amazonians, and I couldn’t be more excited. Then, we’ve got the dudes in jumpsuits getting knocked around, the guy in the pin-striped suit getting flung by a grappling hook. Most likely they’re just low-level goons for the JL to take out. But the biggest but also hyper-casual reveal of the day–Superman! Yep. Just hanging out all sorts of alive in the classic red and blue suit. Then shirtless a little later. So, yeaaaaah, he’s not dead anymore. We knew he’d be in the film, but we still don’t know exactly how he gets revived, so there’s that to look forward to. Plus, we might’ve gotten a peek at his makeshift memorial, covered in flowers behind a Metropolis PD barricade.

But what do you guys think? Did the BTS clip get you more or less psyched for Justice League? What’s happening with Superman and why is he so casual? Are the other JL members annoyed that Cyborg gets to rock pj’s every day? Let’s discuss!
