On Tuesday, the director premiered his Snyder Cut trailer, a black-and-white version of a two-and-a-half-minute teaser that HBO Max debuted in August.
A new trailer for the so-called "Snyder Cut" of 'Justice League' has just dropped. The upcoming four-part miniseries is set to be released next year on HBO Max.
Although Justice League actor Ray Fisher first spoke up about his issues with the filming of the 2017 superhero flick back in July—including accusations that replacement director Joss Whedon was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” in his treatment of its cast and crew—he’s never gone into much detail about what actually went down on the film’s set after Zack Snyder was forced to depart it. That changed today, though, when Fisher gave an interview to Forbes, outlining at least some of his issues with the behavior of Whedon, producer Geoff Johns, and others who worked on the film, including allegations that “The erasure of people of color from the 2017 theatrical version of Justice League was neither an accident nor coincidence.”
'Justice League' director Joss Whedon has denied actor Ray Fisher's claim that he tried to digitally alter a castmate's skin tone on the superhero film.

In a live panel for the independent "Justice League" fan convention JusticeCon on Saturday, actor Ray Fisher claimed that he is undergoing "a process" to get to "the heart" of his earlier allegations that director Joss Whedon engaged in "abusive, unprofessional" behavior on the set of the 2017 DC Comics adaptation.

Armie Hammer was set to star as Batman in George Miller's 2007 "Justice League: Mortal," but then everything went wrong.
DC fans who have been demanding for Zack Snyder’s original cut of “Justice League” may have just got the Champion of Themiscyra and The Dark Knight on their side, as Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck posted tweets on Sunday that seemed to show support for the fan campaign.Gadot’s tweet had no context; simply a black and white picture of the actress with the hashtag ReleaseTheSnyderCut, which DC fans were trying to get trending on Sunday to mark the second anniversary of the release of “Justice League.” Affleck’s tweet followed two hours later.Snyder, the original director of the film, stepped down during post-production after the untimely death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was hired to finish editing the film and also did reshoots with scenes he wrote himself.ReleaseTheSnyderCut pic.twitter.com/wssMmlPqEK— Gal Gadot (@GalGadot) November 17, 2019ReleaseTheSnyderCut— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) November 17, 2019But “Justice League” ended up being no “Avengers,” with lukewarm fan reception and grossing well below $1 billion at the box office. Since then, fans have demanded that Warner Bros. re-release the film in the original cut that Snyder intended, one that original composer Tom “Junkie XL” Holkenborg confirmed had a score composed for it before it was replaced by Whedon.“The full score is still there,” Holkenborg told CinemaBlend last month. “It’s a really great score, and it’s just there. It never goes away. We’ll see what happens in the future, you know?”As for Gadot, she is still an active part of the DC Universe, getting ready to appear as Diana Prince for the fourth time on the big screen in “Wonder Woman 1984,” set for release on June 5.Read original story ‘Justice League': Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck Join Call to ReleaseTheSnyderCut At TheWrap
Adam Brody talks about his experience on the superhero teamup that never was, George Miller's "Justice League Mortal," and his return to DC Comics in "Shazam!"
A 5-minute sneak peek at "Aquaman" also gives us our best look yet at baddies like Black Manta and the Trench, as well as a "Mission: Impossible"-style rooftop chase and a stunning underwater battle.
Cavill loves the memes birthed by his "Mission: Impossible — Fallout" mustache having to be digitally removed for "Justice League" reshoots.

The "Justice League" actor's perfect eulogy for his facial hair is missing just one thing: footage of the actual shaving process. But you'll forgive him after this clever montage.
The Justice League has a rooftop meeting with James Gordon in Justice League. Battered by pre-release drama and disappointing box-office numbers, Justice League limps onto Blu-ray today in a version that won’t satisfy the vocal horde of Zack Snyder fans insisting that the director’s original vision can and should be revealed to the world. Instead, Warner Bros. is standing by the hybrid theatrical cut, which mingles Snyder sequences with new material overseen by his replacement, Joss Whedon, who receives co-screenwriting credit.
Petition-signers might not be thrilled, but Warner Bros. will be including tons of extra material on superhero Blu-ray.
