Zack Snyder just destroyed all hopes for the restoration of the SnyderVerse in the DC Universe
Zack Snyder says a Warner Bros. “aggressively anti-Snyder” is not interested in continuing their version of the DC Films universe despite the “massive fan” campaign to “Restore the SnyderVerse. ”
Fans of the embattled filmmaker behind Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice declared Zack Snyder’s Justice League canon of the DCEU.
This after studio executives allegedly referred to the four-hour director’s cut as a “dead-end for storytelling,” preferring rather than acknowledging the theatrical cut completed by Joss Whedon and released in theaters in 2017.
This means that the version of Whedon, whose controversies with DC we have shared. will be considered as the version that is part of the continuity of his DC Extended Universe in progress.
SnyderVerse will not be restored by Warner Bros.
Ann Sarnoff, president and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios appeared to cast doubt on future DC movies directed by Snyder when she told Variety that the release of the Snyder Cut on HBO Max is “the completion of [Snyder’s] trilogy.”
This despite the fact that the Justice League director’s original plan was to release five films (known as the SnyderVerse) directed by him, which included Justice League 2 and Justice League 3.
“Warner Bros. has been aggressively anti-Snyder so to speak. What can I say? Clearly, they are not interested in my opinion, “Snyder told Jake’s Takes when he was interviewed for his new zombie movie from Netflix, Army of the Dead.
“But I’d also say they certainly weren’t interested – I would have said originally – in my version of the Justice League. They certainly made decisions about it.
Snyder’s plans, documented in part in the Dreamscapes of Zack Snyder’s Justice League exhibit at the AT&T Discovery District complex in Dallas, would have culminated in a Lord of the Rings- like ending uniting the entire DC Universe against the forces of Darkseid (Ray Porter).
“I love the characters and I love the worlds, and I think it’s an amazing place to make a movie. It’s glorious intellectual property. So there it is,” Snyder said.
“I don’t know what could be done as you go along, other than I think the fan movement is very strong, and the fan community, [their] intention is so pure, and I really have great respect for it.”
I hope a cool head prevails [in the studio] and they will see that there is a massive fan who wants more of that. But who knows what they will do?”
In March, Snyder told Pop Culture Weekly that there is “clearly very little chance” that he would “ever make another movie with the DCU,” but added that any possible sequel would use “a lot of the same elements but probably for a different story.
I can hope [he continues],” Zack Snyder told him in his last interview about the future of DC’s so-called SnyderVerse. “It’s not really my [decision], it’s not up to me.”
Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciaran Hinds, Ray Porter, Joe Manganiello, and Jared Leto, Zack Snyder’s Justice League of SnyderVerde now airs on HBO Max.
