There have been so many Justice League members over the years that Zack Snyder’s Justice League could’ve included any number of cameos and teases. Two scenes in Sndyer’s film featured prominent League member Martian Manhunter, played by actor Harry Lennix. Snyder revealed in a new interview with Esquire, though, that last scene was meant to feature the Green Lantern known as John Stewart.
“The last scene with Martian Manhunter, originally, I had shot it in England. And the dialogue was very similar, but it was supposed to be one of the Lanterns,” Snyder said. “And then the studio had told me I wasn’t allowed to shoot anything. There would be no film made of any kind. During production, that was a thing they insisted on.”
The journey to Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been anything but traditional, though, and Snyder defied the order. “I shot stuff anyway, of course, in my yard. And one of the things I shot was the Green Lantern scene.”
