Anyone who has seen Justice League would point out that there are a lot of scenes that seem to be missing from the DC Extended Universe flick. While we wait for Warner Bros. to actually release the Snyder Cut, the film's cinematographer has just unveiled some never-before-scenes that may have expanded on Lex Luthor's escape from Arkham Asylum.

The images were shared on Instagram by Fabian Wagner, who served as the cinematographer on Justice League. Check it out below.

The pictures are not exactly miles away from what showed up in the post-credits scene of the film. However, it's interesting that Wagner referred to the scene as being from Gotham City Jail. In Justice League, the scene was indicated to take place at Arkham Asylum. Although it's possible that Wagner may have mislabeled the photos, it's still possible that Lex was still being held at a completely different location.


In the post-credits scene, the inmates were allowed out of their cells but "Lex" strangely stays behind with his back turned to the door. When the guard approaches, it is revealed that it's a different bald guy. We then see the meeting between Lex and Slade Wilson where Luthor proposes they start their own league.

Although it's unclear just how much footage is missing in the scene, fans believe that the Justice League Snyder cut will reveal just how Lex actually escaped the asylum (or jail, if we believe Wagner's post). Unfortunately, Warner Bros. has yet to confirm the release of Zack Snyder's lengthy cut of the film.
