'Zack Snyder's Justice League' Has An Extra Epilogue Chapter

Zack Snyder's Justice League began as just a bunch of footage on the filmmaker's laptop before a massive fan campaign and many millions of dollars from HBO Max turned in into a four-hour miniseries, then a four-hour feature film. But to better digest such a lengthy superhero epic, Snyder has divided his film into six handy individual "chapters." But the director has revealed that in addition to those six chapters, Zack Snyder's Justice League will feature an additional epilogue chapter.

Zack Snyder's Justice League will have a seventh "chapter" that will act as a "big epilogue" to the film, Snyder confirmed in an interview with Beyond the Trailer (via ScreenCrush). The 20-minute epilogue will be called "A Father Twice Over," and will play from the end of Chapter 6, "Something Darker," through to the credits.

"There is an epilogue that's called 'A Father Twice Over' that, well I guess wasn't released. The last part is called "Father Twice Over" and that's, you know, takes you to the end of the movie," Snyder said. "That's the big epilogue ... from there to the very end is 20 minutes, plus the credits. There's actually seven parts, yes."

Last week, we learned the title names of the movie's six individual chapters, which are, in order:  "Don't Count on It, Batman," "The Age of Heroes," "Beloved Mother, Beloved Son," "Change Machine," "All the King's Horses," and "Something Darker."

We speculated last week that "Something Darker," refers to the arrival of Snyder's planned Big Bad, Darkseid, so fans can only imagine the identity of the "father" in this seventh epilogue chapter. Does it refer to Victor Stone's father Silas? Does it refer to Superman's biological father, Jor-El? Or is Snyder bringing back his original plans for Lois Lane (Amy Adamsto be impregnated by Clark Kent? We'll have to see when Zack Snyder's Justice League arrives on HBO Max and on various platforms around the world starting on March 18, 2021.

Determined to ensure Superman's (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
