A new report identifies the DC hero who is being billed as the 'mind-blowing' surprise cameo for the end of Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max.
The identity of the "mind-blowing" cameo referenced for the end of Zack Snyder's Justice League has reportedly been revealed.
According to io9, the cameo character is J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. An interview with Snyder for Vanity Fair mentioned a hero cameo at the end "that will blow hard-core fans' minds." A theory on why Martian Manhunter, a character most devoted Snyder fans already knew would appear in the Snyder Cut of Justice League, wasn't called out in the interview is because Vanity Fair didn't want to spoil the surprise for the majority of its readership that isn't up-to-date on all things Zack Snyder and Justice League.
The early speculation on Justice League's cameo centered on Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern, leading to the DC hero trending on Twitter. When a Twitter user guessed that the Deadpoolstar was the mystery cameo, Ryan Reynolds debunked the theory with a response of, "It's not me. But what a cool pirate flag to cameo as Hal. Maybe it's another GL? But for me, the suit stays in the closet. I mean, computer."
Fans got their first glimpse at how Martian Manhunter will look in Zack Snyder's Justice League on DC Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee's variant cover for March's Justice League #59. Martian Manhunter appears alongside the DC Films versions of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman.
Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Harry Lennix confirmed that he shot scenes for Zack Snyder's Justice League that will reveal his character, General Calvin Swanwick, is secretly the DC hero Martian Manhunter. "It's going to be great to be up there with Batman and Superman and my pals," Lennix said. "Yeah, I'm once again like a kid at a candy store."
In Zack Snyder's Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne aligns forces with Diana Prince with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
