The trailer the four-hour director’s cut that will release on HBO Max on March 18, has just dropped online. The new version differs drastically from the 2017 theatrical version, which released to poor critical and commercial reception.
Apart from presenting Snyder’s original vision, the new version features additions, most notably Jared Leto as Joker, the supervillain role he reprises from Suicide Squad. The trailer gives a glimpse of him talking to Ben Affleck’s Batman, teasing the intense faceoff to come. It also revealed footage of Black Suit Superman and new supervillain Darkseid.
The trailer drew praise from fans on Twitter, with one calling it, “The best valentines gift a boy could ask for #SnyderCut.” Another wrote, “This looks great, Zack. I’m very glad that we get to see the movie, but I’m even more happy for you, the cast and crew. People finally get to see the true vision that so many people worked hard on, and that’s brilliant. Congratulations.”
