JUSTICE LEAGUE Star Harry Lennix Wants To Shoot Snyder Cut Scene As Martian Manhunter
In a new interview, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Harry Lennix had admitted that he's anxious to reprise the role of General Swanwick so he can film his Snyder Cut scenes as Martian Manhunter...
A little while back, Justice League director Zack Snyder revealed that, in the Snyder cut of the movie, General Swanwick was to be outed as Martian Manhunter. The reveal was set to come after a meeting between Lois Lane and Martha Kent which would have seen the latter revealed as the alien in disguise (along with confirmation that Swanwick knew Superman's secret identity).
During a recent interview the Comic Book Central podcast, actor Harry Lennix was asked about being given the opportunity to go back and shoot his unfinished scenes as Martian Manhunter, and said, "I would love to do that." He also shared his support for the Snyder Cut of Justice League, noting that, "I hope that it will be seen. I really do."
Lennix would go on to say that his Justice League role was actually cut before shooting started after it underwent a rewrite, but sounded confident that the Martian Manhunter scene would still be shot.
The actor also confirmed that he was never told about plans for Swanwick to be a superhero.
Despite the planned launch of HBO Max, we've heard nothing about plans for the Snyder Cut of Justice League to see the light of day, and with Hollywood on lockdown, it's not like it could be finished now!
Are you disappointed that we still haven't seen Martian Manhunter in the DCEU?
