As he prepares to release his long-awaited cut of 2017's Justice League, Zack Snyder isn't afraid to show fans just how different his version of the DC team-up movie will be. Posting on Vero over the weekend, the filmmaker gave us a glimpse at an alternate (and thoroughly intimidating) design for Steppenwolf, the Apokolips baddie voiced by Ciarán Hinds. Based on the image below, it looks like Snyder's take on the otherworldly villain will be a lot taller, spikier, and scarier than he was in the theatrical cut of the film, which featured a slew of reshot footage and effects from Joss Whedon.

"Just working today, pulled this out of the editorial," Snyder wrote in the photo's caption. "Sorry he's low-resolution, but I've seen him in all his high-res glory, and he's a thing to behold. Quick many f***s do you think he gives???"

While the theatrical cut only featured Steppenwolf as the main antagonist, the Snyder Cut will bring Darkseid (played by Ray Porter) into the mix as well. Indeed, Snyder recently said that he won't be using a single shred of footage that was not photographed under his supervision as director.

Zack Snyder's Justice League is slated to arrive on HBO Max sometime next year.

Psych is back and like the old saying goes, when it rains, it pours. Not only can you now stream the Psych 2: Lassie Come Home movie on Peacock, you can also enjoy a meaty, eight-minute blooper reel from the film's production. And believe us when we say it's totally worth your time; then again, we'll take any excuse to spend more time with this talented ensemble of comedy-sharpened actors.

From flubbed lines, to intrusive airplanes, to MCU references, prepare to laugh with the video below:

Directed and co-written by series creator Steve Franks, Lassie Come Home sees Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and Burton Guster (Dulé Hill) returning to Santa Barbara for a case that may actually involve a genuine supernatural element...for once. Timothy Omundson, Sarah Chalke, Jimmi Simpson, Joel McHale, Richard Schiff, and Maggie Lawson co-star.

Franks co-wrote the project with Roday and Andy Berman.

According to Deadline, Netflix has placed an order for 10 episodes of The Last Bus

A live-action series for young adults, the project is described as "a sci-fi road trip adventure, which tells the story of a group of mismatched school kids who band together to face a fearsome new machine intelligence." YouTube creator Paul Neafcy wrote the show for Wildseed Studios (PrankMe) after catching the company's eye with low-budget films shot from his bedroom.

"Although at the top level The Last Bus is a shamelessly entertaining sci-fi romp, at another level it is a powerful eco-fable about how the younger generation must be empowered to make very different choices from the generation which preceded it when it comes to the two big challenges of the age – environmental breakdown and hugely sophisticated artificial intelligence," Wildseed co-founders Miles Bullough and Jesse Cleverley said in a statement published by Deadline.

The plan is to shoot the series in the United Kingdom this fall. Drew Casson, Lawrence Gough, Steve Hughes, Nour Wazzi have been tapped to direct. In particular, Gough and Hughes previously directed episodes of Doctor Who. No cast has been announced yet.
