Zack Snyder’s Justice League, often referred to as the “Snyder Cut”, is the 2021 director’s cut of the 2017 American superhero film Justice League. It presents Justice League—the fifth film of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and the sequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)—as director Zack Snyder intended it before he left the production. Like the theatrical release, Zack Snyder’s Justice League follows DC Comics’ Justice League—Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller)—as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons.
Five thousand years ago, Darkseid and his legion of Parademons attempted to conquer Earth using the Mother Boxes. The attempt was foiled by a unified alliance of Old Gods, Amazons, Atlanteans, Men and a Green Lantern, and the Mother Boxes unintentionally left behind during their retreat. After the battle, the Boxes were hidden in different locations, guarded by the Amazons, Atlanteans, and Men, respectively. In the present, Superman’s death[b] triggers the Boxes’ reactivation, attracting Steppenwolf, Darkseid’s disgraced lieutenant, to Earth. Steppenwolf aims to regain Darkseid’s favor by gathering the boxes to form “the Unity,” which would terraform Earth in the likeness of their world Apokolips.
