Kevin Costner addresses if he'll appear in Zack Snyder's Justice League

Kevin Costner has addressed whether his character will appear in the upcoming Justice League Snyder Cut – but he’s not giving anything away.

Costner played Clark Kent’s adoptive father Jonathan in 2013’s Man of Steel, which saw him killed by a tornado – his last act was to warn Clark not to reveal his powers to the world. However, that didn’t stop Kent Sr showing up again in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when Henry Cavill’s Superman had a vision of his dad on top of a mountain. But will we get to see another Costner cameo in the Snyder Cut?

The Dances with Wolves actor kept things cryptic in a recent interview with CinemaBlend (opens in new tab). "I don't know,” he said. “You don't want to be kissin' and tellin' in life. You’re pokin' me a little bit. I'm not… I can't tell you.” 

So what has been confirmed about the Snyder Cut? Well, we know it’ll be split into four hour-long instalments on HBO Max. It’s the director’s cut of 2017’s Justice League as Zack Snyder intended – he had to step down during post-production and Joss Whedon took over. The movie then underwent two months of reshoots, with Whedon rewriting much of the script. 

We also know Snyder’s version is set to have a much darker tone than the theatrical cut, as well as giving us a proper backstory for Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher. Everything else will be revealed when Zack Snyder's Justice League is released on HBO Max in 2021.
