Warning - This article contains spoilers for Zack Snyder's Justice League .

HBO Max and director Zack Snyder are in the final stages of preparation for the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League , which is now just over 48 hours from its arrival. After months of teases and reveals regarding how this outing will drastically change the 2017 theatrical release , this event feels closer than ever as the promotional tour ramps up to new levels.

Likely the movie's final full trailer debuted over the weekend, giving a more in-depth look at the villainous Darkseid while also hinting at some action for both the Martian Manhunter and the Green Lanterns, both of whom were largely absent in 2017. Given the movie is over four hours long, there seems to be plenty more than hasn't yet been revealed; however, that doesn't seem to be stopping Snyder from r evealing enough material to form a full movie already .

This continues to be the case in the most recent TV spot for the Snyder Cut.


Via @TaurooAldebaran on Twitter, a new 20-second spot released for Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max.

The spot features new footage of Knightmare Batman and Joker along with one of the film's antagonists, Darkseid, in Atlantis.

The trailer also features the following dialogue from Jared Leto's Joker before his signature laugh at the end:

"I often many alternate timelines? Do you destroy the world? And how many dead eyes can you look into before you die inside yourself?"

Even considering the movie is only two days from releasing and how much information is already known to the public, this is a surprisingly spoiler-filled look into the Snyder Cut.

Jared Leto's role in the film has been a major topic of discussion since it was announced in late 2020, especially since he hasn't been seen in the canon DCEU since a short appearance in 2016's Suicide Squad . It seems as though he won't have very much screen time this time around either, but from how often he's been in the trailers, he's being built up as an important player in Batman's arc for this adventure.

In other parts of the trailer, doom and gloom run rampant with looks at two of the movie's central villains, and other footage teases a glimpse at dead versions of two of the core members of the Justice League. This could come as a part of Batman's Knightmare sequence, similar to Tony Stark's vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron , but it's still a mystery where all of this action fits into the story.

No matter what that answer turns out to be, fans will be keeping a keen eye out for this footage as Zack Snyder's vision is finally seen in full .

Zack Snyder's Justice League will debut on HBO Max on March 18, 2021.
