The release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is coming to HBO Max early next year, is underway. While a version of the story was released back in 2017, Snyder has promised that his cut will include several new storylines and scenes. In an interview with Beyond the Trailer, the filmmaker spoke about the importance of Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman for the DCEU superhero team, describing her as the “glue” that holds everything together.
“I feel like Wonder Woman’s journey in our film is real [that] It’s kind of glue. Much of the glue that holds this type of team together. She is the dose of love that everyone needs. She has a line where she talks to Aquaman where he has a slight kind of malice towards his people and he talks about it. And of course she says things like, “Hate is useless.” And he says, “Maybe.” I feel like this is kind of a mantra throughout the film and just says things to Victor [how] The world needs his gifts. “
While Superman is traditionally viewed as the leader of the Justice League, his death at the end of Batman versus Superman means Zack Snyder’s Justice League needed a new character to take the lead and assemble the group of heroes. This character will be Bruce Wayne aka Batman. As Zack Snyder explains that this is one of the most important roles in Bruce’s life and will help develop his character from an avowed loner to someone who finally understands the importance of being part of something bigger than himself.
“They are literally a team of misfits, you know, if you think of each of them. All the way down to Bruce. Alfred says to him, ‘A man who breeds in a cave for a living is not necessarily that the right guy to be the leader of the pack. “So it’s fun. I think that’s really great. By the way, his journey for Bruce is all about. Finally understanding that you are part of a family – part of a group too.” being the way of being of the head of this little house the outsider – that’s fine. He doesn’t have to just go into the dark of the alleys and shit the criminals out (laughs). He brings [the Justice League] together. The real job of bringing them together is as important as anything he’s ever done. “
