It's no secret that Zack Snyder's Justice League is set to provide a different experience to DCEU fans, especially after the dismal showing of the theatrical version back in 2017. After being teased as a mini-series for HBO Max, the film will now be a four-hour affair, and it is expected to dive into a distinct narrative direction shying away from what Joss Whedon presented on the big screen.

So far, Snyder has been at the forefront of the film's marketing with the director sharing numerous tidbits on how exactly his version will be different . As a result, multiple trailers have emerged online as well as official stills that highlight the unique visual approach of the project.

Now, another promotional gimmick for Zack Snyder's Justice League has emerged, showcasing an early moment from the film.


The official Twitter account of Zack Snyder's Justice League posted a new GIF to promote the upcoming debut of the film on HBO Max.

The latest promotional approach for the director's cut provides a new look at Steppenwolf's attack in Themyscira.

The Mother Box in Themyscira that is being teased in the material can be viewed below:

Steppenwolf's quest in obtaining all three Mother Boxes was a juicy plot point in Justice League , and it's evident that this will carry over into Snyder's version as well. Based on what's been revealed so far, the villain's invasion in Themyscira will be far more brutal than the original , and this latest GIF provides another quick glimpse at just what's to come.

The short teaser showcases an action-packed look at the Amazons, and this could hint that the female warriors will be involved in a grueling sequence to protect the Mother Box. While they will ultimately be unsuccessful (spoiler alert), it still paints a picture of a gallant stand from the sisters of Diana Prince while also establishing the threat of Steppenwolf's powers.

Meanwhile, the unique marketing style for Zack Snyder's Justice League is front-and-center in this latest material. This isn't the first time that the promotion leans towards a more interactive approach, considering the studio also released a puzzle-themed image for Jason Momoa's Aquaman.  If anything, this strategy is a direct reference to what Snyder previously teased .

As the much-anticipated debut of Zack Snyder's Justice League inches closer, it will be interesting to find out if there will be more cool activities for the film that will promote further engagement as the film nears its HBO Max debut on March 18.
