WATCH: Stephen Colbert Debuts His Justice League Cut

  • On Monday's Late Show Stephen Colbert debuted his cut of Zack Snyder's cut of the Justice League movie, or rather, his cut of the original film's post-credits scene featuring Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello).

    In this clip, Colbert puts himself in the Luthor role, mocking Deathstroke for looking so much like Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool (Nerd note: Deathstroke pre-dated Deadpool in the comics, and the "red" of his outfit is actually orange) and Will Smith's Deadshot (who also predates Deathstroke), for being an archenemy of the Teen Titans instead of actual grown-ups. Their argument somehow ends up being an eternal dissertation on the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the film rights to various Marvel characters.
