Harry Lennix has played General Swanwick at the DCEU since “ Man of Steel ” and will reprise the role in the new “ Justice League ” cup, which opens March 18 on HBO Max.
During an interview for the comic, the star was asked if he looks at other franchises and he already had the answer on the tip of his tongue.
“I want to be James Bond,” he said with a smile.
Although the character is only played by British stars, Lennix said this was not a problem because:
“What is it? Brits always come here to make films, I think there could be an exchange, right?
Another character on her wishlist is famous jazz composer Duke Ellington.
“I’ve been dreaming of playing Duke Ellington for a while. I am also a musician and have always wanted to play it. He was a very fascinating man, obviously a great genius, he contributed a lot to American music and was one of the few civilians to win two medals of honor for his talent, an American decoration in 1969 and a French one in 1973. These are the highest honors a civilian could receive and he deserved it.
Until he makes his wishes come true, all he has to do is wait for his next DCEU participation.
Speaking of which … For a long time it was suggested that General Swanwick would be the alter ego of none other than J’onn J’onzz, the Mars hunter.
So far, that has never been clear, as the adaptation released in 2017 did not make room for the hero.
However, Lennix confirmed to the portal that the character will be making an appearance on the Snyder Cut.
“I made a recording using a motion capture suit, so that’s it. It will be a CGI version. I don’t know what I’ll be like, but I’m glad to know J’onzz will appear. I think he will be in good shape.
Unfortunately, he didn’t reveal any details about the character’s role in the plot.
Even so, it’s worth remembering that director Zack Snyder had already revealed a few years ago that he would bring J’onzz in disguise as Martha Kent (Diane Lane) to get information from Lois Lane (Amy Adams) on the death of Superman (Henry Cavill) in the battle against the Apocalypse.
The filmmaker said the scene would show Martha transforming into J’onzz as soon as he left Lois’ apartment, and then transforming into his most common human form, General Swanwick, played by Lennix also in “ The Man of Steel ” and “ Batman vs. Superman’.
Snyder even revealed a few storyboards from the scene on his Vero profile.
For fans, presenting J’onn J’onzz in this way would make Swanwick an important character in the DCEU and someone who could connect the heroes to the government as a secret military liaison, much like Nick Fury and the Avengers.
Remembering that the film will last 04 hours.
Check out the synopsis, as well as the trailer:
In Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’, determined to ensure that Superman’s (Henry Cavill) final sacrifice is not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) teams up with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with the intention of recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world in the face of an impending threat of catastrophic proportions. The task is more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face off against demons from their past to transcend what stood in their way, allowing them to unite and ultimately form 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 terrible intentions. “.
