Watch The Entire Joker Scene in “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”
We’ve interviewed Justice League‘s sound designer and cinematographer, we’ve written more than a dozen pieces on the film’s long, winding road to its HBO Max release, and now we share what could be a fitting coda to the entire Justice League experience. At long last, the entire Joker scene starring Jared Leto, provided by Zack Snyder himself.
Joker’s appearance in Snyder’s impassioned, four-hour-long cut came at the very end. The scene itself is the much-discussed Knightmare sequence, in which Batman (Ben Affleck) can’t shake the fear that Superman (Henry Cavill) is going to go rogue, and he dreams of, among other dystopias, a world in which he and the Joker meet again. In the cut we saw in the HBO Max release, Batman promises to kill the Joker (after insulting him with a memory of Harley Quinn). Then the Joker offers the now infamous “We live in a society” line, and the scene, while riveting, isn’t much more than that.
Snyder’s reveal of the full scene is a lot more than that. It’s also in black-and-white. If you’re a fan of the #SnyderCut, you bought the ticket long ago. Here, below, is the full ride.
