Small Details You Missed In The New Justice League Snyder Cut Trailer

Happy Valentine's Day, DC fans! Zack Snyder and HBO Max gave fans of the DCEU the best gift of all this year: an extended look at the long-awaited Snyder cut of Justice League. The new trailer left the internet buzzing thanks to its sneak peek of a brand new scene between the Joker and Batman, but the Justice League Snyder cut trailer is full of small details that hint at just how different this film will be from the Joss Whedon directed version released in theaters back in 2017.

Everything from the score to the movie's big bad has been updated for the nearly four hour film which is set to premiere March 18 on HBO Max. Prior to the latest release, fans had to make do with a somber black and white trailer, but the latest look at the Snyder cut is the most in-depth tease to date. And it seems the director's promise that his version of Justice League will be an entirely different film holds up.

Of course that's evident from the appearance of Jared Leto's Joker, but there are plenty of other tiny details you may have missed in the latest Justice League trailer.

The trailer features a new Justice League score from composer Junkie XL

Danny Elfman is one of the most famous composers in the movie industry, and his score for the 2017 Justice League was solid, but it wasn't exactly what Snyder had in mind. Before he left the film due to a family tragedy, the director had already enlisted composer Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg) to create the score for the major DC team up. However, when Whedon was brought in, many elements of Snyder's vision were lost, including the dark beats of the movie's music.

Thankfully, Warner Bros. gave Snyder enough money to bring Junkie XL back onboard for the new cut of the film (via Collider), and if you listen closely, you can hear his music in the latest trailer. The fresh score seems to work perfectly with the grittier tone of the Snyder cut, which focuses on serving up haunting, apocalyptic vibes as the Justice League assembles to save the world from Darkseid and his henchmen.

Granny Goodness and DeSaad make a blink-and-you'll-miss-them appearance

One of the biggest changes fans can expect to see in the new Justice League is a beefed up role for the story's true big bad, Darkseid. As a result, the ruler of Apokolips plays a sizable role in the new trailer, but there's also a quick glimpse at two of his allies who were cut from the 2017 release: Granny Goodness and DeSaad.

Both characters can be seen flanking their master as Steppenwolf pledges to help carry out Darkseid's plans for destruction. DeSaad, who serves as Darkseid's torturer, is played by Peter Guinness, but the role Granny Goodness — a warrior who trains Darkseid's army and leads an all-female squad known as the Female Furies — will play remains more of a question mark.

There's even been speculation that the character will be entirely CGI rendered, but whether there's an actor playing the role or not, just seeing her included in a scene from the trailer hints that she could pop up in future DCEU movies.

Flash swoops in just in time to save Iris from a flying car

Iris West was always supposed to make a cameo in Justice League, but everything Kiersey Clemons shot for the role was cut despite her character being set to play a significant role in the upcoming The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. Happily, fans won't have to wait until 2022 to see Iris in action now. In one of the trailer's new scenes, a barefoot Barry is shown rescuing his future wife from a flying car.

The scene not only gives viewers a good look at just how powerful The Flash is, it also hints at what's to come when the character's solo movie is released. By restoring this scene, Iris and Barry's relationship will be established, at least to some extent, prior to the release of Barry's film in 2022, and most importantly, Iris will finally get to make her DC movie debut.

The new Justice League trailer features Superman in his iconic black suit from the comics

When Superman returned after briefly being killed off in the comics during the '90s, the Man of Steel needed some time to regain his full strength. This led to him donning a black Kryptonian suit that helped him heal, but the suit was also symbolic of everything that the character had been through as well.

For Snyder, it's long been important to show the newly resurrected Superman wear his black suit, and as revealed in the trailer, he's finally going to have his dream realized. Superman's classic red and blue outfit is temporarily retired for the 2021 Justice League, and instead he reemerges in a fresh take on his black suit from the comics. It's a striking moment in the trailer, and one that points to just how dramatically different the Snyder cut will be from the film that was released in theaters.
