Artist Datrinti recently revealed his mock-up of Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix as Martian Manhunter.
Lennix played General Swanwick in both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Back in October 2019, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder revealed that Lennix was actually J’onn J’onzz also known as Martian Manhunter.
Snyder detailed the reveal would have been seen in his version of Justice League. He posted a mock-up to his Vero social media account showing a conversation between Lois Lane and Ma Kent. As the conversation ends, Ma Kent transforms into Martian Hunter and then into General Swanwick.
Snyder added that he had shot the entire scene except for Martian Manhunter’s transformation into Lennix, but he did detail he intended to shoot it in LA.
Lennix denied he was Martian Manhunter back in 2016, but did state that someone thought he should be.
Not the Manhnter but somene else thought I should be. It would be cool. https://t.co/Fa7InYpXwS
