Zack Snyder reveals that The Atom was cut from Justice League!!!
CinemaBlend reports that director Zack Snyder originally had another superhero slated to appear in last year’s Justice League, but never made it into the final cut of the film. According to the report, Snyder had planned on including Ryan Choi, better known as The Atom. Choi’s name appeared on a computer monitor in one Justice League scene, and a promotional image showed Silas Stone, the father of Cyborg, standing next to an unnamed scientist. Synder confirmed that the scientist in the image was, in fact, Choi, as played by Orion Lee.
It’s unclear if Choi would’ve appeared in the film as The Atom, but it seems that Snyder was laying the groundwork for future DCEU movies. Once Joss Whedon took over after Snyder exited the project, the scene was left of the cutting room floor. A different iteration of The Atom appears on The CW series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, played by Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), though his alter ego is Ray Palmer, another character who had the mantle. #JusticeLeague #BenAfleck #HenryCavill #GalGadot #JasonMamoa #ErzaMiller #RayFisher #AmberHeard #JKSimmons #ZachSnyder #JossWhedon #DannyElfman #DcComics #DcCinematicUniverse #WarnerBros
