The secret behind Warner Bros.’ Accept the events of justice league remains a mystery. Warner Bros. technically claims that the 2017 theatrical version of the film is the sole canon of the official DCEU timeline. On the other hand, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which fixed Joss Whedon’s heavily edited and revived theatrical version, remains a dead end, an event set in an alternate continuity. Unfortunately for the studio, the controversy surrounding the production of the theatrical cut and the different storyline and approach of the Snyder Cut kept the studio from providing an official update. And all this mystery has caused is confusion.
Lately, Black Adam almost got caught up in the tangles of DCEU’s complex timeline when a trailer for the upcoming film featured footage of Joss Whedon justice league. However, before a lengthy fan debate and discussion could ensue, the studio removed this footage and re-released a “corrected” version of the trailer (above ScreenRant).
Dwayne Johnson, who plays the title character in the film, released the trailer with the caption “Corrected” and started the one-month countdown to Black Adams Theatrical release on October 22nd.
The scene in question here was Steppenwolf slamming his deadly axe-like weapon into the ground, causing a massive explosion. The scene has been significantly altered from Snyder’s original version, which featured Darkseid instead of Steppenwolf, as corrected in the Snyder Cut.
The reason for removing the footage with a scene from Whedons justice league could be the controversy the film sparked after the Snyder Cut found its way. Actors including Ray Fisher, Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck revealed the film’s troubled production after Whedon took over the reshoots. There were reports that Whedon was hostile to the crew and cast during filming, leading to an internal investigation into the director and DC Films executives, including Walter Hamada.
Even if that weren’t the case, using this footage isn’t the right choice, as it was the low point for Warner Bros.’s attempts to build a solid cinematic universe around DC Comics characters. justice league was not only a critical and commercial failure, but also resulted in massive fan outrage and bad press for the studio, which eventually led to this Zack Snyder’s Justice League more than three years later.
What’s wrong with Those of the Justice League Place in the DCEU timeline?
There is still a lot of confusion as to which justice league The film fits into the DC Extended Universe timeline. Although the new Black Adam trailer removed Those of the Justice League Footage, it still contains sequences from Batman vs Superman: Dawn of JusticeZack Snyder’s successor man of Steel.
It does point out that Snyder’s original films are still canon for the DCEU, but it doesn’t answer whose justice league is a better sequel to the two Snyder films. Since the film’s release, no film has explicitly mentioned events from justice league Besides that Aquaman (2018). Directors of subsequent films, such as Patty Jenkins, have spoken out against Whedon’s editing, admitting that they took Snyder’s vision as the basis for their stories. But after almost five years of this film DCEU has grown expansively and has focused on solo stories while retaining connections to past films only in mere references. We can’t say when DC Films will resolve this situation, but the studio will likely keep Joss Whedon’Whedonse league from any advertising or marketing material.
Black Adam stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular supervillain whose story will cast him as an antihero in the film. The film will also feature the Justice Society of America, who would need to form an uncanny partnership with Black Adam to take down a superior threat. Black Adam will be released on October 22, 2022.
