Despite being originally envisioned as a multipart saga, Zack Snyder has revealed that he currently no longer has any plans to expand the Justice League beyond the upcoming Snyder Cut.
“Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League,” Snyder said on the ComicBook Debate podcast (via CBR). “The truth is, and it’s been widely reported, and I have no issue, this is an old movie. This is a year-old movie I’m working on. The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that’s fine.”
He added, “As far as what I did and as far as what my vision for what I wanted to do with these characters and the journey I wanted them to go on, it’s well known that I planned on more movies, five movies or something, but I’m busy. I’ve got a lot going on. Is it cool that the fans have so much faith in the trajectory? Yes, it’s amazing, and I couldn’t be happier and I’m excited for them to see Justice League so they can really drink the entire elixir of Justice League. But, would I continue? I have no plan to. But as I said, I didn’t think I’d be here, so who knows?”
Snyder’s comments come not long after a New York Times interview with DC Films president Walter Hamada, where it was revealed that Hamada and the other executives at DC view Zack Snyder’s Justice League as a “storytelling cul-de-sac — a street that leads to nowhere.”
Regardless, it still seems like Snyder has a loyal legion of fans who will love to see more DC fans made by him, considering the hashtag #RestoreTheSnyderVerse that was trending on Twitter recently.
In any case, at least fans can still catch Zack Snyder’s Justice League which will be hitting HBO Max as a four-hour movie on March 2021.
