Momoa wrote alongside the video: ‘The best part about being Aquaman is that Zack Snyder created me so I get to see all this awesome sh*t before anyone.’

The teaser opens with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) investigating what appears to be ancient art concerning the mother boxes, while Lex Luthor’s (Jesse Eisenberg) final words in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice play back: ‘The bell’s already been rung, and they’ve heard it. But in the dark, among the stars; ding dong, the god is dead.’

Then comes the real jaw-dropping moment: the first live-action footage of Darkseid (Ray Porter), who was omitted from the original theatrical cut of Justice League.

Snyder also shared the clip on Twitter, telling fans to ‘get ready for more at DC FanDome’, a 24-hour livestream event in August dedicated to all things DC. This week, Dwayne Johnson announced his participation, igniting Black Adam excitement.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is the result of a titanic fan campaign, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, which has been raging on pretty much since the original film’s release. Warner Bros. is throwing around $30 million at it in order to complete post-production work effectively.

For those who haven’t kept abreast of DC goings-on; the original Justice League, while still attached by name to Snyder, is unlike his original vision. He stepped away from production due to a family tragedy, enlisting Avengers Assemble director Joss Whedon to finish up. However, Whedon made seismic changes both tone-wise and visually.

In a recent conversation with Digital Spy, Eisenberg commented on the ‘Snyder Cut’, saying:

I mean, I can’t think of any other precedent in history where there was something of this scope. Because it’s not just about releasing the movie, but it required all of this… we call it post-production. And yeah, I’m so happy for [Snyder]. He’s a great guy with a very, very specific vision and so, yes, I’m happy that he gets that. And he seemed really happy.

When the movie drops next year, unite your league – this will be sensational.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set for release in 2021 on HBO Max.
