ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE Was Supposed To End With TWO Green Lantern Corps Members Meeting Batman

We know that Martian Manhunter replaced John Stewart in the closing moments of Zack Snyder's Justice League, but it turns out that the Green Lantern Corps member was going to have a little company...

Zack Snyder's Justice League ended with Martian Manhunter meeting with Bruce Wayne to warn him of the imminent threat Darkseid poses to Earth, but it's no secret that the original plan for this scene was for the John Stewart Green Lantern to make his presence felt at the Dark Knight's home.

Unfortunately, Warner Bros. stepped in and pushed for the filmmaker not to use the beloved hero because of their own plans plans for Stewart's live-action debut. That makes sense, because the passionate "SnyderVerse" fanbase would likely reject whoever they cast for the Green Lantern HBO Max TV series or Green Lantern Corps movie in preference of Snyder's pick.

Snyder recently revealed who he'd cast as Stewart, but it turns out the filmmaker hoped to use two Green Lanterns in this scene. As he explained at Justice Con, Stewart was set to be joined by Kilowog. 

"Originally, we were going to have John Stewart and Kilowog come to the dock to see Bruce [Wayne]," Snyder confirmed. "That was the original, original idea."

Kilowog did make it into the Snyder Cut of Justice League, but only as a dead body at the feet of the corrupted Superman. 

It's a shame we'll never get to see this scene, and there's no denying that Batman meeting with John Stewart and Kilowog is a much cooler concept than Martian Manhunter (no offence, J'onn J'onzz fans). With any luck, both of those characters will soon be brought to the big or small screen, so it's not like this was our only chance to see them side-by-side. 

One thing we do know is that Snyder had big plans for Green Lantern in his Justice League sequels.

At least WB could save the Green Lanterns from being tainted by Snyder.

We literally knew that Zack wanted this in like October 2017. It was reported at the time. Idk, maybe it was just a rumour that Zack wanted to make a reality after the fact. I don't care.

Wasn’t this in the rumors from a year or two ago? I remember it being said to specifically be two lanterns in the after credits.

Kind of reminds me of when Kevin Smith was talking about the Zack Snyder cut back in 2017, but in those scenes he said it could've been Tomar-re that arrives with Kilowag instead of John Stewart. (Watch from 1:56:30 to hear him talk about it).

@Superspecialawesomeguy - 😂😂 WB execs probably watched all the footage and said.."where's the jokes?"

Zack Snyder left his DC fans with a cliffhanger at least Marvel fans had closure.

It's kinda like the nick fury cameo in iron man's post credits scene, except it somehow makes less sense (how do they know about batman and where were they during the whole movie?). Idk, it may have been cool in a better universe, but here it would have felt like a cheap attempt at a cliffhanger for future movies that will probably never come (which is exactly what I think of the martian manhunter scene).

Let's make a second Snyder Cut! Invest 100mil more that could be spent for new movies and give the fanbase what they want!
In the third Cut we'll have an introduction with Zack telling us all he wanted to do and didn't get to do with the third one teasing the fourth cut!
