Kevin Smith Reveals Zack Snyder's JUSTICE LEAGUE Trilogy Plans, Including The Green Lantern Corps

While the chances of a "Snyder Cut" ever being released are pretty much zero, don't forget that the director had a whole trilogy planned and Kevin Smith has now revealed how it was set to play out...

As disappointing as it is that we never got to see what Zack Snyder had in store for Justice League, it's an even bigger shame that his planned trilogy of moves didn't play out the way he hoped. 

Unfortunately, it seems like there 
was miscommunication from the start because while the director wanted to tell a standalone story, Warner Bros. was simultaneously looking to launch a series of spinoff movies, thereby building a cinematic universe opposite way Marvel Studios has. 

Now, Kevin Smith has shed some light on what he's heard about Snyder's Justice League plans. He reveals how things would have played out not only in Justice League 2 but also a third movie which, as expected, would have taken place in that "Knightmare" setting.

So, to find out what the plan was for these characters - and the Green Lantern Corps - all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button down below. 




According to Smith, crew members saw Jim Lee storyboards for all three movies. While the first instalment we ended up seeing (with Joss Whedon's reshoots) mostly played out how Snyder planned, the biggest change was that the ending would have featured an appearance from Darkseid as he stared down the team through the Boom Tube Steppenwolf escaped in.

In the sequel, however, things would have taken a cosmic turn for the iconic heroes...
 


Apparently, the League would have taken the fight to Apokolips in a movie which may have also featured New Genesis. It was in this movie that the Green Lantern Corps would have got involved and Smith claims that the scene with Alfred in the Justice League trailer where he says "Let's hope you're not too late..." was originally going to be with Green Lantern, not Superman.

Crew members even had green lights which they shined on Jeremy Irons but plans clearly changed and the Corps remained relegated to those flashback scenes. 
 


Justice League 2 would have featured a dark ending along the lines of The Empire Strikes Back or Avengers: Infinity War as the team would have been defeated in space before Darkseid arrived on Earth and, in Smith's words, "levels it." 

Needless to say, that would have made things difficult for the solo movies Warner Bros. had planned but it would have nicely led to that "Knightmare" vision Batman had becoming a reality and the Flash having to travel back in time. 
 


As you might expect, Justice League 3 would have pitted the heroes against Darkseid for one final stand against the villain as they attempted to set things right. The director stops there but this adventure presumably would have featured time-travel and possibly even the evil Superman we saw kill Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's hard to say.

Either way, Smith says, "I really feel like hearing what we heard, we might have missed something." It's hard to disagree with that and, if we're lucky, Snyder might one day comment on these plans himself. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below.
