One of the main differences of the film is the consolidation of Darkseid as the main villain. In the 2017 version, the Steppe Wolf was the only antagonist in the film. In Snyder’s view, Darkseid is the real head behind it all, even being the one who tried to conquer the Earth for millennia.

One of Snyder Cut’s most anticipated appearances, The Joker (by Jared Leto), brought some answers and mentions to moments of Batman vs. Super man.

In the film with the two greatest DC heroes, we see that Batman has a Joker card on his weapon in the timeline of the future. Now, we know that this is a symbol of a truce between the batman and the villain.

Jared Leto’s character is also responsible for explaining that Batman’s “nightmare” was a vision for a sequence of Justice League. Apparently, in the not too distant future, Darkseid’s army would be responsible for Lois Lane’s death. The loss of his love, would turn Superman into a maniac, a story very similar to the one presented in the game Injustice.

The original idea of ​​Zack Snyder was that the film had a sequence and, with the hooks that the director leaves in the epilogue of the feature, it is clear that he was counting on these future productions.
