How Will Zack Snyder’s Justice League Connect To The Current DCEU?

Zack Snyder’s Justice League won’t really connect with the current DCEU anymore.

The DC Extended Universe is a tricky beast. It once seemed to have the uniform vision of one Zack Snyder, but in the years since, it’s changed into something much different. Not only is the franchise much more filmmaker-driven (and less committee-driven) than ever before, but it also had one big wrench thrown into it: the Arrowverse. In one fell swoop, it became clear that every single film and TV series ever produced was its own separate branch in the multiverse.

With that in mind, it almost doesn’t really matter what happens in any film. There can be numerous inconsistencies in the films, and it can all be chalked up to differences in the universe. But that doesn’t stop many of us from wondering how Zack Snyder’s Justice League will fit into the current DCEU.

“It’s a good question,” Snyder told YouTuber Grace Randolph in an interview. “We shot the movie in 2016. It’ll be five years old when it comes out. For me. You know, I’ve been living with it for that long. And, frankly, the DC cinematic universe has branched like a tree and blossomed and grown in amazing and great ways.”

Snyder continued: “For me, where the movie falls, it sort of…I believe it really starts to represent its own path. It’s kind of separate now from what I would say the DC cinematic universe in continuity. I think it’s divergent in that way. And that’s a good thing. I think the power of DC and one of its cool strengths is that multiverse concept. And also where they put filmmakers first and say, ‘we want to hear your individual voices. So take these characters and do a run.’ […] I heard someone say, ‘oh, you’re entering the Snyder-verse now.’”

But that wasn’t all. Snyder went on to emphasize that his overall goal with his Justice League will be to maintain the story continuity between it, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman. In other words, this film will create its own branching path. 

My one question is what will happen if this is a huge hit. If fans adore it, will this pave way for Justice League 2? If that does happen, I think Zack Snyder’s Justice League’s place as the source of a diverging timeline will be completely confirmed.
