The debut of beloved Justice League alien member and DC hero Martian Manhunter will no doubt prove to be a major highlight of the upcoming Snyder Cut, and we now have a better idea of what the iconic comic book artist’s artwork will look like thanks to an official Jim Lee. The piece shows J’onn J’onzz in all his glory alongside the superheroes Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and although it is a work of art, it is fair to say that Martian Manhunter will look very faithful to his comic book counterpart Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Martian Manhunter, whose real name is J’onn J’onzz, was designed by writer Joseph Samachson and designed by artist Joe Certa. He is the only surviving member of the Mars race who is mistakenly teleported to Earth after the destruction of his people. Possessing the ability to change his appearance at will, as well as super power, speed, flight, and telepathy, Martian Manhunter should prove to be a visual delight when brought to life on screen.

As one of the original seven members of the Justice League, rumors have been around for years that Man of Steel’s General Swanwick, played by Harry Lennix, is Martian Manhunter in his human form, which Zack Snyder has since confirmed was always the plan with Lennix recently reveals that the character is brought to life using motion capture. “Mo-Cap. I don’t know what I’ll look like,” he said. “I don’t know what the body is going to look like and such, but I’m thrilled to see it. This guy is probably in good shape, for example. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s reverse engineering, but I had the mo -Cap [suit] on me and I did that thing. Now I don’t know what this will finally look like, but to a certain extent I wonder if that should be reverse engineered. “
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is expected to follow a similar plot to what audiences saw in theaters in 2017, but with some major changes along the way. Taking up the events of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne is determined to make sure that Superman’s final sacrifice wasn’t in vain. He teams up with Diana Prince to recruit a team of meta-humans to protect the world from an impending threat of catastrophic proportions. The task turns out to be more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own past in order to overcome what held them back so that they can come together and ultimately form an unprecedented league of heroes. Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their terrible intentions.
