Warner Bros. has been “aggressively anti-Snyder,” according to Zack Snyder, who claimed this during the Army of the Dead movie’s marketing in May 2021. As a result, the studio is not interested in expanding Snyder’s universe. The position is not without hope, though.
“I’d say that initially, they were interested in my take on the Justice League. In this sense, they came to conclusions and made judgments. I told him, “I appreciate the characters and the environment,” according to Jake Hamilton of Jake’s Takes. “I think it would be a great place to shoot a movie, and it has wonderful intellectual property, so there’s that,” the speaker said.
That doesn’t preclude the possibility of returning to the SnyderVerse, and with The Flash prepared to combine the cosmos into the But, if it does occur, what can we expect from Justice League 2? The options for a sequel and various plots are covered in the sections that follow.
I don’t know what further may be done as you go forward, but I think the fan movement is strong and the goal is worthy. I have a great deal of respect and admiration for it. And I have faith that they will see sense and realize that there is a sizable following that wants more of it.
I’d be really thrilled if that happened. The conclusion of Justice League, which was finally released in March 2021, was a “huge cliffhanger,” as promised by director Zack Snyder, and it left room for the possibility of additional movies. But as of right now, we cannot say with certainty if that will occur or not.
That doesn’t preclude the possibility of a return to the SnyderVerse, especially with The Flash about to take center stage.
Will a Sequel to Zack Snyder’s Justice League Be Released?
Snyder’s supporters may be temporarily satiated by the new Justice League, but that is as far as his vision for the group will take him. Snyder stated to ComicBook Debate in January 2021 that he has “no plan” to continue this world because he “had a lot going on” despite his initial intention to make additional films. But, he said, “as I said, I didn’t believe I’d be here, so who knows?
Warner Bros. has reportedly described Zack Snyder’s Justice League as a “storytelling cul-de-sac” that will not be continued, which is exactly how Snyder now feels about it. In an interview with The New York Times before the movie’s release, Snyder said it was “the last movie I create for the DCU,” adding that the cliffhanger ending wasn’t there because he was thinking about making more movies.
He explained, hinting that the cliffhanger was more about sticking to his original concept: “The request was for my version of the picture.” You should never rule anything out because nobody anticipated that Snyder’s final version of Justice League wouldn’t arrive until May 2020. As mentioned before, attempts to create the multiverse might allow Snyder’s version of this world to exist without having an effect on other worlds.
By all accounts, a direct Justice League sequel would be a long way off (and still impossible), so if Snyder does return to DC, it would most likely be for a different movie.
What Was Zack Snyder’s Earlier Concept for the Follow-up?
Keep reading if you haven’t watched Zack Snyder‘s Justice League because we’re about to give you key ending plot spoilers. The dramatic ending features our heroes battling Steppenwolf and keeping him from uniting the three Mother Boxes, just like in the first Justice League movie. Steppenwolf is killed by Wonder Woman as he is dragged back through the gateway to Apokolips after a small hiccup that required The Flash to go back in time.
The biggest distinction is that this version of the movie features more of Darkseid, DC’s equivalent of Thanos, who makes a promise to arrive on Earth to fight the heroes and steal the Anti-Life Equation. After that, we see more of Knightmare (the terrifying future first seen in Batman v Superman), and when Bruce Wayne finally wakes up from his dream, he speaks with the Martian Manhunter, who offers to help in the impending battle.
The plan was for this to be Green Lantern rather than Martian Manhunter, but Snyder was unable to use the scene with Wayne T. Carr as John Stewart because it had already been shot and was in the can. But who knows? He might make an appearance in a follow-up. Snyder’s original Justice League story would have been similar to the Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame arcs, in which our heroes were killed off only to be time-traveled back to life for one more epic battle.
Don’t believe us? Here’s how Snyder described his strategy for The New York Times sequels:
“The world is over, and Superman has been defeated by Anti-Life. Then, in order to stop it from happening, it sends a Flashback. The great fight that followed was won by us. All of Earth’s troops reassemble exactly as they did previously when Darkseid appears on Earth in the part of the movie you won’t see.
This time there would be aircraft ships and Special Forces personnel, all the armies of the globe, Atlanteans arriving from the sea, and Themyscirans leaving their island. That was the major outcome. However, there is a lengthy drum roll and a guitar solo first. Movie production firm Warner Bros. Fans of Snyder will have to make do with Snyder’s description of the sequels for the time being, but we’re sure they’d like to see his ambitious vision finally come to fruition.
