Snyder Cut’s Martian man hunter revealed

Must read


Martian Manhunter is one of the many new characters appearing in Zack Snyder’s Justice League that was not in the original theatrical release. Thanks to DC Comics, we now have a better idea of ​​what actor Harry Lennix will actually look like as J’onn J’onzz. This tease comes in the form of a new cover variant of March’s Justice League # 59, drawn by DC Creative Director Jim Lee. The cover suggests a fairly comic-book-faithful approach to Martian Manhunter, although it emphasizes his gangly Martian form rather than his rounder, muscular superhero look.

Lee and his fellow DC artists Lee Bermejo (Batman: Damned) and Liam Sharp (The Green Lantern) all draw variant covers for Justice League # 59, with the full roster of the team (and Darkseid!) Split between them. three blankets. DC also offers black and white versions of these covers. You can check out all six covers in the slideshow gallery below:

Lennix previously appeared in Man of Steel in 2013 and Batman v Superman in 2016 as Lt. Gen. Calvin Swanwick, although we now know Swanwick is actually a Martian manhunter in disguise. Even Lennix himself didn’t know the truth behind his character until he was approached to reprise his role in Justice League. At the time, Lennix’s schedule did not allow him to return, but he has since filmed new scenes for the reworked version of Snyder’s film. Lennix joins other actors like Jared Leto and Joe Manganiello in filming new material for The Snyder Cut. We recently had a taste of How Leto’s Joker Factors In The Plot Of The Movie, and it’s quite different from the version seen in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Justice League # 59 hits stores on March 16, two days before Zack Snyder’s Justice League hits theaters and on HBO Max. This issue is part of the relaunch of DC Infinite Frontier and marks the start of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez’s run for the title. Bendis and Marquez will shake things up a bit for the League, including addition of Black Adam, Hippolyta and Naomi to the list. But despite current rumors, DC does not rename Black Adam “Shazadam”.
