There was a lot Zack Snyder wanted to pack into his big superhero team-up film. A year the four-hour version was released, missing pieces to Snyder’s DC universe continue to trickle out.
On the anniversary of the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, actor Wayne T. Carr released a photo of himself as Green Lantern. Snyder previously confirmed he shot a scene with Carr as the character.
“Give the fans what they want- JL 2/3 #RestoreTheSnyderVerse,” Carr tweeted.

At the 2021 Justice Con, Snyder revealed Carr filmed a scene in his driveway as Green Lantern. “He’s an amazing actor, an amazingly kind gentleman,” Snyder told the Nerd Queens and Wonder Meg. “I said, ‘Look, there’s a chance that this doesn’t make it in the movie,” but the scene was shot anyway.
Carr’s appearance was cut because HBO Max announced it is developing its own Green Lantern series focused on Green Lantern Corp members Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Alan Scott. Snyder confirmed that if Carr’s scene was still in the movie, he would have played John Stewart.
While Carr’s scene was cut, other characters were restored in Zack Snyder’s Justice League including Martian Manhunter. Jared Leto’s Joker also appears in the movie, but that was not part of Snyder’s original plan and something that happened as the director began to think about the re-release.
DC Extended Universe: Every Upcoming Movie
While the promise of releasing the Snyder Cut has been fulfilled, there are renewed calls to restore the SnyderVerse, which refers to how Justice League was supposed to be part of a trilogy of movies.
However, Warner Bros. has not signaled any intention to follow up the Justice League with more sequels. The movies are also starting to diverge as Matt Reeves’ incredibly successful The Batman looks to spawn a universe of sequels and spinoff TV shows.
