With its extended running time, the film promises more never-before-seen footage. Apart from the featured Justice League heroes, fans should watch out for another member in the mix in Calvin Swanwick, also known as the Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix). Fierce adversary Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) also has extended scenes in the film.

Fans can watch the triumph of the Justice League against Akropolis' nightmare, Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), in its extended glory, along with the first-time appearance of apocalyptic god Darkseid and the haunting return of Jared Leto's Joker.
