After years of fan campaigning and outcry, Zack Snyder's Justice League brought the director's original vision for the 2017 film to HBO Max in four-hour extravaganza.
Despite this, Warner Bros. still prevented Snyder from doing everything that he wanted with the Snyder Cut. The most notable of these omissions was a potential cameo from John Stewart's Green Lantern, who would have appeared alongside fellow Leaguer Martian Manhunter. Concept art revealed what Snyder's version of Green Lantern would look like, sporting an extremely comic accurate costume.
What makes the situation even more baffling is that the scene itself was actually filmed, with Wayne T. Carr being unveiled as the actor who would have played John Stewart. Cyborg actor Ray Fisher had introduced the actor to Zack Snyder, who then brought Carr aboard to film the scene on a makeshift set in the director's own driveway.
Now, the actor has revealed the first image of himself on the set of Justice League...
GREEN LANTERN ACTOR REVEALS BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTO
In a new post to social media, Zack Snyder's Justice League actor Wayne T. Carr shared a behind-the-scenes photo of himself dressed up in a mo-cap suit.
Carr is seen surrounded by a green screen on a set constructed in director Zack Snyder's driveway, with an emerald glow emulating the light of the Green Lantern ring.
Carr's caption read:
GRATEFUL! Stretching between takes.
Based on concept art for Zack Snyder's Justice League, Wayne T. Carr's Green Lantern suit would have looked similar to this:
Fellow Snyder Cut actor Ray Fisher shared his support for Carr, telling him that "the suit looks good on you, brother."
Director Zack Snyder also took to his Vero account to share another look at the "driveway production" of the Green Lantern scene:
The concept art of Darkseid without his classic helmet from 'Zack Snyder's Justice League' was revealed.
A behind-the-scenes look at Wayne T. Carr's John Stewart from 'Zack Snyder's Justice League' was revealed.
Unused designs of Parademons from 'Zack Snyder's Justice League' were revealed through a new batch of concept art.
MORE GREEN LANTERNS IN ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE
The Snyder Cut already included two Green Lanterns from the DC mythos, those being Kilowog and Yalan Gur. Bringing in Wayne T. Carr's John Stewart to the fold would have upped the Lantern representation significantly, solidifying another champion of Earth to join the ranks of the Justice League.
While Carr's filming was previously discussed by himself and Zack Snyder, this is the first time that fans have seen the actor on set. It is ultimately a shame the actor was omitted from Justice League, but perhaps these continuous posts about the Snyder Cut's production will rally support for Carr to be put back into a version of the film.
Both Carr and Fisher shared their support for the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, so perhaps this could be another way for Wayne T. Carr to appear as Green Lantern. Warner Bros. has been adamant about going in their own direction, there could still be a chance that Snyder will be able to continue his vision of the DC universe.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is available now on HBO Max.
