Snyder Cut gets the Comic Book Treatment Justice League from Snyder is spotlighted in Comic Books
As The Snyder Cut of Justice League begins to hurtle towards us on HBO Max, arriving March 18th, DC Comics are using the momentum to help the comic book run pick up some love too.
New creative team Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez take the reigns of the title on March the 16th, issue #59, and that issue will feature at least three variant covers that will feature the images of the heroes based on their movie counterparts.
It looks like one of the covers will feature Superman in the black suit seen in the film’s trailer, and Darkseid will also be present, along with “credits” giving the cover a film poster style. Another looks set to feature Ben Affleck’s Batman and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, and the third version will have Martian Manhunter, surprisingly, along with Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
Along with the full-color covers, there will also be available in black and white, but they may cost a dollar more than the regular cover price.
As far as the book goes, it seems that Bendis’s character Naomi will play an important part in the narrative, and there will also be a backup feature that focuses on Justice League Dark. As well as the new direction the creative is heading in, the roster of heroes will see a shakeup,
Superman, Batman, Flash, and Aquaman are all there, but it seems they will be joined by Naomi, Black Adam, Hawkgirl, and Hippolyta, so the new additions will lead to various new relationships growing within the ranks.
Since joining DC in an exclusive deal, Bendis has had runs on books such as Superman and co-ordinated events such as Leviathan, but fans have been lukewarm to his approach, so it will be interesting to see where he goes with The League.
Fans that have petitioned for the Snyder Cut can celebrate twice with the release of the film on the 18th, and they can build anticipation by picking up issue #59 of the comic on the 16th.
