Zack Snyder reveals new details on a deleted Justice League scene featuring Amy Adams' Lois Lane. Snyder exited the project during post-production, resulting in Joss Whedon stepping in to take over. This resulted in Justice League's already ongoing changes to grow even more, and has continued discussions of what Snyder's original take actually was.
There's been no shortage of coverage on the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League in the last year since the theatrical version of the movie hit theaters. Somewhat surprisingly, it's been Snyder who has been the source of most of the discussion too. Even though he's left most of social media and has largely remained out of the public eye following the death of his daughter, he's very interactive on Vero, and routinely drops new hints about his various plans with DC. It's given him an outlet to connect to his supporters, and has even set up reference challenges in the past.
Snyder's now utilized Vero once more to share an image and storyboards of a deleted scene from Justice League. The scene connects to previously revealed Easter eggs concerning Snyder's favorite coffee shop "Fred & Ginger." Snyder was able to replicate the shop for the set of Justice League, and used it as part of a deleted and extended sequence of Lois "on her way to heroes park to pay her respects to her love," Superman. She can be seen leaving the shop in the photo below, with Snyder even making a cameo of his own through the main window. Snyder also released storyboards for the entire scene.
This deleted scene is entirely focused on Lois, and how she's dealing with the death of Superman, so it may be disappointing to those who wanted to see this explored more in Justice League to now learn that such a scene existed. That said, portions of the scene were still used in Justice League, but they were repurposed for Whedon's opening montage. Additionally, the scene would've given Marc McClure, who played Jimmy Olsen in Superman: The Movie, a slightly larger role than what he ultimately received.
It's hard to believe that after a year of Justice League coverage that Snyder has more details and deleted scenes to share. His reveals are not only relevant to Justice League either, as he's teased other connections to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and where he planned to take the DCEU after the team came together. One of his biggest and latest reveals was a glimpse at how Darkseid was going to be featured. Even though Snyder's days of directing DC movies may be over, there's no stopping him from continuing to share his plans for Justice League or any other DCEU flick.
