In The Beginning
We all remember the first Justice League trailer that Zack Snyder dropped, right? I do. It gave me the fulfillment of what was about to be a lifetime event to witness on-screen. That didn’t happen. In fact, almost EVERYTHING in that first trailer was never seen again in the film. That’s why so many have joined into championing the release of Snyder’s cut of Justice League.
But little by little, information has been discovered, and campaigns have begun to have the version of the film we were sold on, restored. And we’ve also found concept art that detailed what Zack had originally (or rewritten) planned, or by storyboards or by Zack confirming on Vero. But this time, it’s different. This time, pun intended, we have some new information about what was going to happen in Endgame. Whoops, I mean Justice League. (If you follow me on twitter, you’ll get that joke)
There Was Light
Now, what I’m about to say is true. But I can’t release the information of my source or how I discovered it. That’s why I’m not putting this out as an exclusive. It will get updated once Zack is able to confirm, but until then, you don’t have to believe me.
I will say that every bit of information I’ve ever written about, has been true. Even as far back as Ben Affleck and what happened to his Batman film. The reason I won’t claim this as an exclusive is because of what was told to me. But I will say that my source worked directly on the film. And they described my biggest question from that Justice League trailer 2 years ago. What was the Flash doing? Now we can tell you.
Superman & Cyborg
In the original (rewritten) ending of Justice League, Superman and Cyborg are attempting to separate the motherboxes, just like in the Theatrical version. However, in doing so, they actually get ripped apart during the process. If that sounds crazy, that’s because it is. Both Superman and Cyborg sacrifice themselves trying to prevent the Unity from eventually forming.
Now, we all remember that shot of Cyborg shouting “Barry!” in the trailer as well, right? Maybe they digitally removed Superman from that shot in order to keep the spoiler from getting out. Because we know there’s a video of Zack on set with Henry and Ray separating the motherboxes behind-the-scenes. But that’s just speculation.
Flashback To The Future
But wait, how does Barry get involved? Well we all know that the scenes of him running (in what looked like the third act battle) seemed to show him generating a time-warp affect. That was actually because Barry was running to time-travel and to prevent Superman and Cyborg from being torn apart. He arrives just in time to help them in the last few seconds to save their lives. I can only imagine that scene probably would have been a spectacular display of Barry using the Speedforce.
Now, because of the Snyder Con, we know that Time-Travel was going to be implemented in Justice League. So finding this out made sense. For anyone with doubts, once this description/confirmation from Zack is made available to the public, I will update this article. But for now, we at least know what Flash was running to and WHY.
