The anticipation surrounding Zack Snyder's Justice League is already at an all-time high, especially considering that the debut of the film is inching closer. At this point, it's no secret that the upcoming cut from Snyder is expected to be far different from the theatrical version that earned negative reception from fans and critics.
The marketing for the Snyder Cut has ramped up in recent weeks, as evidenced by the release of the film's trailer that featured many compelling character beats and moments that set it apart from its predecessor. The hype was further boosted by the visionary director's continued teases and reveals from social media.
Now, another piece of promotional material for Zack Snyder's Justice League has emerged.
ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE GETS FUNKO POPS
DC Comics officially unveiled a limited edition Zack Snyder's Justice League Funko Pop 4-pack collection, featuring a black and white metallic color design. The characters that are included in the collection are Wonder Woman, Darkseid, Superman, and DeSaad.

A STUNNING LOOK AT JUSTICE LEAGUE CHARACTERS
On the surface, this latest batch of Funko Pops offers a fresh look at the designs of several prominent characters in Zack Snyder's Justice League. The black and white color palette provides a unique spin to the character styles while also staying true to Snyder's original vision for his director's cut.
Given that Darkseid's design is mostly CGI, this vinyl figure presents an opportunity for fans to analyze every detail of the villain's live-action portrayal. An added bonus for the Funko Pop is the inclusion of the weapon of the Lord of Apokolips, seemingly giving a preview of how deadly it will be portrayed in Justice League.
Meanwhile, it's unknown why DC chose these characters for the first collection pack for the Snyder Cut, but this could hint at the characters' expanded roles in the film. For starters, Darkseid and DeSaad's time in Apokolips will no doubt be explored, finally revealing more answers as to why they chose Earth as their next target.
The resurrection of Superman will remain integral to the plot of Justice League, but the addition of the black suit creates more avenues for the character to evolve in surprising ways. Wonder Woman hasn't been given enough spotlight in the film's promotion, but it looks like the character will play a pivotal role this time around, especially after the hero's sudden rise in popularity.
Overall, this is an exciting moment for Snyder Cut supporters, and it's only a matter of time before Zack Snyder's Justice League will finally be released to the rest of the world.
