‘Justice League’ Star Harry Lennix Teases Martian Manhunter Role

DC Extended Universe actor Harry Lennix has teased his role as Martian Manhunter for Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League.

Justice League sadly went through a lot during its production. The course of the film was changed mid-production thanks partly to the mixed reception to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Director Zack Snyder later had to vacate the director’s chair due to a personal tragedy, leading Avengers director Joss Whedon to take over production who supervised several rewrites and reshoots to the film that saw many elements cut out. One such element was apparently the reveal that Harry Lennix’s General Swanwick was in fact J’onn J’onzz, The Martian Manhunter.

Fans had speculated for some time that Harry Lennix’s character was the Martian Manhunter for some time. This was eventually confirmed to be the case by both Zack Snyder and Harry Lennix and the reveal was meant to happen in Justice League. Sadly Harry Lennix’s role was cut entirely out of Justice League. With Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League making it’s way to HBO Max, however, we just may see this play out and Harry Lennix seems to be teasing it.

In a recent post, Harry Lennix wrote about the Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League in a cryptic way that seemed to tease his role in the upcoming version of the film. Later a fan responded to this post with a drawing of Martian Manhunter and the actor responded with a winky face. You can see the full posts below:

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
