Justice League director Zack Snyder shared pictures from the upcoming movie just before Thanksgiving, multiple sources reported this week.
The Justice League filmmaker shared the images on his personal Vero account, according to Screen Rant. The stills — which are reportedly of a coastal Icelandic village — are believed to reveal set locations for the Justice League movie.
The first still from Zack Snyder is of a serene lake near the tiny town of Djupavik, Screen Rant reported. The town has a permanent population of two residents but accommodated more than 200 members of the Justice League film crew during the team’s shoot in Iceland. The article suggested that the backstory for Aquaman’s recruitment into the Justice League may have been the reason the site was chosen.
Further evidence Zack Snyder chose Iceland to develop Aquaman’s backstory involved another photograph the Justice League director shared on Vero. Zack Snyder included a picture of Jason Momoa — the actor who plays Aquaman in the Justice League movie — dressed in character surrounded by the similar scenery.
Stills from the movie may not be the only items Zack Snyder releases in the near future, according to ComicBook.com. The website suggested that more information about Aquaman would be coming out in the near future. Much of Aquaman’s role for the upcoming film has been kept secret, including his look and costume.
Zack Snyder also shared images of Bruce Wayne’s vacation home as part of the image share on the social media app Vero. The house set is similar to one that first appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year.
Other news coming out about the Justice League film involves the casting of Willem Dafoe. The legendary actor is set to play Vulko, a mentor and advisor to Aquaman. Despite this significance of Vulko to Aquaman, Willem Dafoe recently told the Guardian that his appearance in the Justice League movie was a prelude of things to come.
“Well, Justice League is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman.”
Another legendary actor also has been rumored to have been cast for the Justice League film, according to Cosmic Book News. English thespian John Cleese — an actor known for roles in Monty Python and Harry Potter — may have been cast for an unknown part in the 2017 film, especially as London was used as a set for parts of the Justice League film.
More information about which characters may make special appearances in the Justice League film has also been released, according to Cinema Blend. The website reported that a member from the Green Lantern Corps would be making a special appearance in the film for a “key sequence.” This brief appearance could set up the Green Lantern Corps film scheduled to be released in 2020, the article suggested.
Justice League is scheduled to hit theaters in November of 2017. The film is the follow-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, another movie Zack Snyder directed that was released earlier this year. Batman v Superman received poor critical reviews, as some believed the movie introduced too many characters into the cinematic universe, the Inquisitr previously reported.
