Zack Snyder's Justice League: Batcave Meeting & Darkseid Mural Featured in New Set Photos

Zack Snyder is currently hard at work prepping his own version of 2017's Justice League. Snyder was originally set to direct the film entirely on his own, but a tragedy in his personal life forced him to step away. Warner Bros. brought in Joss Whedon to finish the film.

The finished product was vastly different from what Synder was working on and also wasn't exactly well-received by fans.

Since then, hordes of fans begged Warner Bros for the "Snyder Cut," and in early 2021, they'll get their wish granted.

In the lead-up to a new trailer, the cinematographer for the film, Fabian Wagner, has been sharing behind the scenes photographs captured during the original 2016 shoot of Justice League back when Zack Snyder was still on the project.


Fabian Wagner has taken to Instagram yet again to share some new images from the original production of Justice League. Check them out below:

First off, there's an image of Gal Gadot's Diana Prince standing in a location glimpsed at in the trailer for the Snyder Cut. Wherever this happens to take place, it definitely has something to do with the villain, Darkseid.

These next two pictures supposedly represent the scene where the Justice League comes together in the film. In the second photo, one can see Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne, Ezra Miller's Barry Allen, Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry, and Ray Fisher's Victor Stone standing around one of the three Mother Boxes.

Wagner's caption for this post reads:

360 track with 2 dolly’s and 4 cameras all synced and lined up perfectly, for the whole League coming together. First image is of an early test. I wanted to shoot it all in complete darkness with just the spots coming down. After seeing @ptatopoulos ‘s amazing set, I changed my mind!!! Love you man! Can’t wait to see it.

It's a nice gesture on Fabian Wagner's part to share all these photos from the set. Despite these images being about four years old, not every major film production officially reveals behind the scenes images so willingly.

Obviously, he's releasing these shots to build hype for Zack Snyder's Justice League, which is actually due for a new trailer soon, or at the very least, a new version of the original trailer.

The Snyder Cut will release sometime in early 2021 exclusively on HBO Max. It will include a limited amount of brand new footage shot especially for this new version.
