The sequence has The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Mera (Amber Heard), Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), and the Joker (Jared Leto) preparing to battle Superman (Henry Cavill), who has turned evil after a tragedy in a dream. The scene was filmed without all of these actors ever being on the same set. It was also the only new scene in the movie which was shot last year during pandemic and lockdown.
