The filmmaker Zack Snyder has finally acknowledged a theme link across his DCEU movies Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League as well as a deleted scene from JL that a lot of fans had been speculating about.
The deleted scene in question is the one where the revived Superman walks across the hall of the ship from Krypton. He is seen wearing a black Superman suit there, and he could have chosen it, but, eventually, he chose to stay with the blue and red suit worn by him earlier.
A fan named Nick Albright had asked Snyder about the link on Vero, referring to it as a reminder of the line from Man of Steel, “All these changes you’re going through, one day you’re going to think of them as a blessing. And when that day comes, you’re going to have to make a choice: a choice of whether to stand proud in front of the human race or not.” Here, Superman’s choice of blue and red is his decision to stand proud.
Snyder replied by saying, “I think of course it’s that (what you said) and that now in one sense he has been born twice once on Krypton once on Earth, and it is this reality that he now is starkly aware of as he moves through the ship.”
In fact, this black Superman suit was a reference to the “Death of Superman” and “Return of Superman” comic book stories. In that comic book narrative, Superman re-emerged devoid of his powers, and he dressed in that black Kryptonian suit till the time his powers were back.
As of now, the theme scene linking the three Snyder movies is a special aspect which was removed from the movie itself. In case fans manage to get their way, they will ensure that a Snyder’s original Justice League version will be released, although there have been numerous doubt about existence of any such cut. In case it does come out, it might reintroduce the villain Darkseid into the film as well.
You can watch Justice League on Digital HD now, and it will release on Blu-ray as well as DVD on March 13th. Other future DCEU releases include Aquaman on December 21st, Shazam on April 5, 2019, Wonder Woman 2 on November 1, 2019, Cyborg in 2020, and Green Lantern Corps in 2020.
