Now that Zack Snyder's Justice League will officially be arriving to HBO Max, fans are even more curious about what's to come in his original version. Now, the director reveals one key change that fans ought to expect.

A fan asked Snyder on Vero about whether or not the red sky in the third act of the film will be changed. The director confirmed that the color grading will indeed be different, as seen on the screenshot shared on Reddit below!

Instead of the red sky seen while the heroes are racing through, it was actually a somber blue seen in the first trailer of the film. As previously clarified by cinematographer Fabian Wagner, the decision to change the color grading was made after Snyder made his exit from the project. Joss Whedon’s intent to making the sky red in that scene is unclear though. Since Snyder didn’t further specify what he’ll change it into, it’s unclear if he will switch it back to blue, as seen on the trailer, or an entirely different color.

As fans may already know, the big deal about the color in the third act is that the red skies indicate when Darkseid arrives on Earth. This is one of the many changes that Snyder has revealed over the years about his original vision for the movie. Aside from Darkseid, Martian Manhunter is also being teased for the Snyder Cut. 

The bits and pieces Snyder has revealed about his version of the Justice League are certainly exciting and promising, and we can’t wait for it to finally come to life!
