Zack Snyder has revealed his plans for Justice League 2 and shared a drawing of his take on Martian Manhunter.

After Joss Whedon’s Justice League in 2017 saw a negative response from fans, people campaigned to see the ‘Snyder Cut’ – Zack Snyder’s darker and extended version of the movie.

Three years on and the original version is on its way – set to be available for fans to stream on HBO Max in 2021. Yet, Snyder is already thinking ahead, with hopes for a sequel.

Will there be a Justice League 2?

Nothing is confirmed about a sequel yet, as it is likely to depend on the success of the re-cut Justice League.

That being said, Snyder has definitely thought about what could be in store for the characters, recently revealing his ideas for a second movie.

During a League of Mayhem stream by The Nerd Queens, Snyder said: “…What do I say to the world about, you know, what happens when Darkseid comes to Earth? Then what, you know, is that a thing?

“…Do I know what happens with Darkseid? Yes. I do know what happens. To say and to speculate about what that is, that would be exciting. I think that’s a fine thing.”

He also mentioned that he had discussed it with Ray Porter, who plays Darkseid, suggesting he could return to the role later down the line.

Darkseid was the original villain in Justice League before Joss Whedon took over. However, he will finally be making his debut in the Snyder Cut, with Steppenwolf still appearing, just redesigned to how he was originally intended to look.

When going through images of Darkseid, Snyder also revealed a drawing of Martian Manhunter as a ‘tease’.

A lot rides on the success of the Snyder Cut when it premieres, not only for Snyder’s sequel but also for David Myers to have the chance to share his original take on 2016’s Suicide Squad. It’s already been rumored that one could be on the way.

Until then, Snyder has promised fans will see ‘something’ before November 17 – which will mark one year since the #ReleasetheSnyderCut movement – building even more anticipation.

The Snyder Cut will be available on HBO Max in 2021.

Actress Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, is going viral after making an account on TikTok – but her lowkey username means that many users are actually stumbling across her account by accident.

The recent buzz surrounding video-sharing app TikTok has got millions of people gravitating towards it to try out some of the viral trends that the app has become most notable for.

This includes a wide range of celebrities who have made accounts to connect with their fans, including Jason Derulo, Lizzo, and more.

TikTok’s user base is growing bigger by the day.

But not every famous person was upfront about their decision to make an account, keeping it quiet to see who would end up finding them first. In November 2020, singer Billie Eilish snuck onto TikTok with a bizarre username that had fans questioning if the account really belonged to her.

Now, actress Maisie Williams seems to be the latest celebrity to join up, under the username ‘lil.hustla.’

The first video from the account was posted on January 30 2021, and she’s since gone on to post many videos that have racked up hundreds of thousands of views and likes.

Her account has already managed to get over 340,000 followers, but that seems like nothing compared to the 10 million followers she has on her verified Instagram account. Although some have dubbed it ‘TikTok’s best-kept secret,’ it seems like the cat is already out of the bag, as some of the star’s videos have up to five million views.

In one video, where people use the Stitch feature to answer the question, “what is your favorite celebrity interview moment,” Maisie included the viral Jimmy Fallon interview in which she pranked viewers by pretending she’d dropped a major spoiler for Game of Thrones.

This was alongside other videos trying out a variety of filters such as the time warp filter, and recreating some of TikToks’ most popular dances.

While lil.hustla does appear to be Maisie Williams’ actual account as her Instagram account is linked in the profile, she’s not currently verified, and people have managed to make some rather convincing fake celebrity accounts in the past for actors like Tom Holland.

Regardless, the lowkey account has certainly been entertaining fans of the star, and it’s got people wondering which other celebrities could already be on TikTok without anyone else knowing.
