It’s hard to believe that it’s been less then a year since the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. That would be Zack Snyder’s last project working with DC Characters. We know that there were many reshoots and changes that were made once Joss Whedon was brought in. With that said it’s safe to say that we did not get the vision that Snyder intended for Justice League or the DCEU as a whole.
Since his departure he has been dropping information about things he was planning to do with the DC Universe. The latest revelation comes from a Vero user Michael Van Huang who had asked Snyder about the identity of the Star Labs scientist who was standing besides Cyborg’s dad, Silas Stone, in a Justice League promotional photo. Snyder replied by by confirming the appearance of another DC superhero Ryan Choi, otherwise known as The Atom.

Fans had caught his name in a digital list of STAR Labs employees, but it was just seen as an Easter Egg. But this confirms that there was an actor who had been cast to play Choi, but the character was scrapped along with a good portion of his vision of the film. Although we don’t know the plan, it’s possible that Snyder could have included Choi to tease his character and his upcoming powers, but for now we is all speculation.
A lot of fans know the Atom as Ray Palmer as seen in the Arrowverse played by Brandon Routh. But eventually his character passes his physics defying, shrinking Atom technology to Ryan Choi, who is a student of Palmer. He first appeared in comic books in DC Comics’ DCU: Brave New World in 2006 by Gail Simone and Grant Morrison.
It is interesting to see so many different bits of information that Snyder is releasing about his vision of the DCEU. It’s disappointing to know that we will never get to see what his complete vision would have looked like. At least then Warner Bros. had a direction with the DCEU.
