Justice League: what you need to know to watch the Snyder Cut

After much insistence from the fans, Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League finally it will be made available. The film brings the vision that the original director had for the team before being removed and replaced by Josh Whedon.

So that you are not confused when watching the Snyder Cut, we will remember the main moments of the heroes that precede the film.

When does the Justice League take place?

The film happens right after the events of Batman Vs Superman: The Origin of Justice, a film that was released in 2013 and continues the story of The Man of Steel. The two Wonder Woman productions take place before the Superman movie.

Suicide squad is another film that, in the DC timeline, takes place before Justice League. But, aside from the appearance of the Joker, the villain team feature shouldn’t have much of an impact.

The movies Aquaman, Shazam! and Birds of prey happen after League events, so we’re not going to talk about them.

In Batman Vs Superman, we see the main DC hero die. After using a kryptonite spear to end Doomsday, Superman is weakened to the point that the villain is able to kill him too.

The hero’s death affects everyone, especially Lois Lane. Metropolis citizens build a large memorial in his honor, while his body is secretly buried in Smallville.

After everyone pays respect to their friend, the dirt on top of Clark Kent’s coffin begins to levitate. Is it Superman coming back?

After spending all the time Batman Vs Superman fighting with the Kryptonian, the bat man closes the film realizing that he should join his fellow superheroes.

During the battle with Doomsday, he practically lets Superman and Wonder Woman take over the action. The bat man realizes that perhaps he is better at coordinating attacks than fighting directly against such a powerful villain. It is at this point that he decides to create a team of heroes.

Luckily for Bruce Wayne, he finds several metahuman files on Lex Luthor’s drive, just what he was needing to create his team.

The incredible Amazon left her secret island, filled with powerful women, to help end World War I. In the process, she loses the man she loves and begins to live secretly among humans like Diana Prince.

After Superman’s death, Bruce Wayne convinces the heroine to help him form a team of heroes.

Before Justice League, we only had a small appearance from Barry Allen. On the occasion, we see the hero trying to stop a store theft by means of a security camera.

It is worth remembering that a Flash of the future appears in Batman Vs Superman to alert the batman to the powers of the Kryptonian.

The hero also had a small appearance in the DC Universe before the team feature. In the scene, we see Victor Stone’s father using an alien cube to reconstruct his son’s mutilated body and turn it into a cyborg.

In the files of Lex Luthor, we see a recording of Arthur Curry destroying an NSA drone that was spying on him in the Pacific Ocean. The hero is the son of a human with the queen of Atlanta.

After failing in his mission to get Batman and Superman to kill each other, Lex Luthor is arrested.

As soon as he is in jail, Luthor shaves off his red hair and takes on the familiar bald head of comics. Batman appears to threaten the villain and warns that he is sending him to Arkham Asylum.

However, Luthor implies that he knows the bat man’s true identity and warns that Superman’s death will be received as a signal to the alien threats that it is time to attack Earth.
