Zack Snyder added Martian Manhunter to his cut of Justice League during last year's final round of reshoots, and while he appeared in two scenes (his transformation outside Lois Lane's apartment and that final meeting with Bruce Wayne), it was only supposed to be one.



Yalan Gur in ZSJL for reference, you can see the chest has the same (awesome) effect:


The filmmaker wanted to use John Stewart in the epilogue, and even filmed the character's scenes with actor Wayne T. Carr. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. stepped in and pushed for that particular Green Lantern not to be used because the studio had plans for him elsewhere.
That's probably the Green Lantern Corps movie, with the thinking being that having the hero debut in the Snyder Cut may have lessened the impact of his eventual arrival on the big screen a few years from now.

As a result, Martian Manhunter replaced Stewart, and Carr's scenes were left on the cutting room floor.



During an Army of the Dead screening last night, Snyder finally shared a first look at Carr suited up as Green Lantern.
While this photo (which isn't the greatest quality, unfortunately) only offers a glimpse at what the filmmaker had planned for Stewart, that costume looks pretty badass on the actor.



Seeing as Green Lantern Corps is likely years away, there's really no reason this cameo couldn't have been allowed to happen.
An appearance from John would have also been a much better tease for the SnyderVerse's future than Martian Manhunter, but perhaps that's why Warner Bros. said no?

Yes the GL Corps movie is about a new recruit John Stewart being trained by an older Hal (who died in the original script, which is why Tom Cruise bailed from the movie). Wouldn't make sense for a new recruit John Stewart in that movie if he showed up in this movie with the ring and everything already.

I think people are smart enough to understand that they are not from the same universe, It's a false problem. We have two Batman and there is two Joker, yet people are not confused.
They can even say in the marketing something like "this is a new story blablabla"... like it is done with The Batman.
