The Ending Of Zack Snyder's Justice League - EXPLAINED!

To properly build a team-up amongst DC Comics luminaries, the first live-action Justice League was always going to involve a lot of narrative development. Zack Snyder’s Justice League, on the other hand, has an exceptionally huge amount of build-up centered around the distinct worlds of its main superheroes, due to its 240-minute runtime. The theatrical cut’s fast pace has been replaced with in-depth looks into the lives of characters like Cyborg, the Flash, and Steppenwolf.

Of course, this superhero action film isn’t entirely pre-planned. In the end, Batman and other DC Comics stalwarts band together to combat Steppenwolf and his henchmen. As a result, the finale is drawn out and the audience is bombarded with huge revelations. Some of them are tied to pivotal moments in the character arcs of characters like Superman and the Flash, while others involve laying the groundwork for potential future entries in the DC Extended Universe.

Steppenwolf has arrived.

The plot of Zack Snyder’s Justice League is not brief. The film establishes the unique universes of newcomers Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller), as well as a planet still hurting from Superman’s death at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder and the team develop the personality attributes of our heroic characters in these early sequences, which will be vital in the film’s finale.

Individual members of the titular Justice League are dealing with extremely diverse personal issues. However, a lack of enthusiasm in working as part of a team is a constant theme in both Cyborg and Aquaman’s stories. Despite their reservations, after Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) begins building the Mother Boxes to destroy Earth, all of these heroes are compelled to work together. The crew chooses to utilize one of the Mother Boxes to revive Superman, a person powerful enough to assist them in defeating this alien evil.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League concludes with a memorable run.

Every member of the Justice League, including Barry Allen, has a crucial part to play in the ultimate battle with Steppenwolf. Cyborg will need a shock of electricity to get access to the trio of Mother Boxes, which can only be created by the Flash sprinting at a breakneck speed. The Flash is shot down by a Parademon soldier while on one of these types of runs. Darkseid and his minions are given ample time to trigger the Mother Boxes and destroy Earth after our hero is temporarily shoved aside. However, just before the Earth is about to be destroyed, the Flash chooses to break his one rule and run so fast that he travels back in time.

It’s a daring action that the superhero isn’t sure he’ll be able to pull off, but if he wants to rescue the planet, he has no option. The Flash recalls his father’s statement that his son was “the greatest of the best” while sprinting at such a high speed, and he understands that he’s finally lived up to that title. Finally, his perilous journey pays off handsomely, as time is pushed back just enough for Flash to give Cyborg the electrical boost he needs, ensuring the world’s survival.

Superman is back!

Zack Snyder’s version has Superman (Henry Cavill) return from the grave, momentarily turn evil, and then restore his natural personality just in time to stop Steppenwolf from destroying Earth, much like the theatrical cut of Justice League. However, in Snyder’s rendition, the changeover takes longer.

The most significant difference between the films is a lengthy scene in Zack Snyder’s Justice League in which Superman returns to his Fortress of Solitude before rejoining the Justice League. The reborn Kryptonian strolls around his lair while his two dads, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and Johnathan Kent (Kevin Costner), chat to him about the significance of achieving his dreams. Superman has donned a black version of his regular superhero outfit and flies away, preparing to join the Justice League, by the end of this sequence.

When he finally does, he arrives barely in the nick of time. When Superman intervenes, Steppenwolf’s axe is ready to fall on Cyborg. Superman makes his tremendous presence known by turning the axe into the ice with his superpowered breath, and he and Steppenwolf engage in combat. Superman pins the beast to the ground and punches him repeatedly near the end of the fight. Superman returns to the earth uncertain of his place or identity. As he confronts Steppenwolf for humanity’s sake, it becomes clear that the Man of Steel has matured into the guardian he was born to be.

At the conclusion of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Martian Manhunter appears.

Die-hard DCEU fans finally got to witness Harry Lennix’s Man of Steel character, Calvin Swanwick, reveal himself as the superhero Martian Manhunter in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Swanwick’s identity has long been speculated by fans, and Snyder eventually confirmed it in 2019. It appeared destined, though, to become a mysterious “what if” situation. The casting became a reality with the premiere of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

This major disclosure is initially revealed in the film during a scene in which Martian Manhunter disguises himself as Ma Kent to encourage Lois Lane. The alien superhero then reappears in the film’s very last scene. This scenario opens with Bruce Wayne going out of his residence, jolted awake by a Knightmare vision, to discover Martian Manhunter floating above him. Darkseid isn’t through with Earth, according to the alien hero, and he and Wayne are both aware of this.

Martian Manhunter tells Bruce Wayne that his parents would be proud of him for putting together the Justice League, and then exposes his identity to the millionaire. It’s a scene that not only vindicates Swanwick’s role in past Snyder DCEU films but also establishes Martian Manhunter as a possible collaborator in future DCEU projects.
