After filmmaker Zack Snyder had put a considerable amount of time into making 2017's Justice League, he left the project to tend to a family tragedy. Avengers director Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the project, which included massive reshoots and a CGI reconstruction of Henry Cavill's upper lip.

Since then, fans have been wondering about the possible existence of what's become known as "The Snyder Cut," based largely on varying reports of how close he was to completing Justice League before Whedon took over.

While Snyder hasn't weighed in on his own edit of the movie, the Man of Steel director has again taken to the social media platform Vero to share an image from a deleted Justice League scene, as well as a storyboard.

First, he posted a black and white photo of Lois Lane (Amy Adams) leaving Fred & Ginger Coffee, an actual coffee shop in Kings Langley, England, that Snyder liked so much he replicated their storefront on a soundstage. "[She's] on her way to Heroes Park to pay her daily respects to her love," Snyder explained in the comments.

Snyder also revealed that he's actually sitting inside the coffee shop. It seems that he was going to give himself a little Hitchcock in the superhero crossover had he been able to stay on board as a director. "Not only is it a cameo, it's me drawing the scene in a fake coffee shop that represents the real coffee shop where I drew the real scene," he wrote in another comment.

In addition to the photograph, Snyder also posted a storyboard for the scene, which follows Lois buying her coffee before walking to Superman's memorial statue. When she arrives, a Metropolis police officer, Jerry, greets her with "You don't miss a day, do you?"

While the scene obviously doesn't appear in full, it does seem like pieces of it were used for the film's opening montage. 

Snyder has previously taken to Vero to explain the big Martha reveal from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also seemed to imply there were some really poignant and nuanced moments that ended up on the cutting-room floor.
