A new image from the set of Zack Snyder’s Justice League reveals Wonder Woman discovering Darkseid’s mural for the first time.
The latest image from the set of Zack Snyder’s Justice League reveals Wonder Woman discovering Darkseid’s mural. Additional work for the upcoming HBO Max project is currently ongoing. Because of this and the anniversary of the theatrical cut coming up, fans have been regularly treated old and new set content from Justice League.
Officially announced in May 2020, the upcoming Justice League project comes after more than two years of relentless petitioning by members of the Release the Snyder Cut movement. As it turns out, the campaign first got the attention of Warner Bros. after it staged its second-anniversary event, which featured Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot publicly throwing their support. Months later, Snyder is back behind-the-camera for extra work, adding the finishing touches to the cut he initially filmed during principal photography and some more.

Director of Photography Fabian Wagner has been sharing images from the set of the original Justice League shoot in 2016, the latest of which features Gadot’s Wonder Woman looking at Darkseid’s mural. Since the shot was taken from the back, the photo doesn’t show the actress’ facial expression, but it gives a decent look at the actual painting. Check out the image below:
There have actually been several looks of this particular scene that were released in public even before Justice League‘s HBO Max mini-series was officially announced. In the two years after the release of the theatrical cut, Snyder had regularly dropped content from his original version of the story, which was significantly changed when Joss Whedon stepped in to finish the movie. The filmmaker teased this particular moment with a close-up shot of Gadot in 2018, showing the Amazonian Princess having a worried look on her face. Meanwhile, a better look at the surrounding murals also made the rounds online, which focused on the Humans, Atlanteans, and Amazonians coming together to protect the Mother Boxes instead. Given this, it’s clear that this sequence was already shot, so it’s curious why Snyder is revisiting the bit.
While it’s unconfirmed, there were rumors that this was supposed to be the final shot of Justice League, leading to the events of Justice League 2. Steppenwolf was always going to be just the lead in to Darkseid, who’s the overall big villain of the narrative. Since the story has been reformatted to be told in four-parts like a mini-series, it’s possible that Snyder is making sure that he’ll be able to roll out a fully-finished story and fulfill the promise he made to fans and his cast. This makes sense, considering that it’s unknown whether or not he’ll be able to get another chance to continue the story, so ending it on a cliffhanger isn’t exactly the best idea.
