According to Zack Snyder he has no plans to continue in the DCEU after his directors cut of Justice League. This comes on the heels of WB DCEU boss Walter Hamada calling Justice League a dead end. Fans have wondered whether Snyder’s vision could continue if the Justice League Director’s Cut is successful. Recently Kevin Smith said as far as he’s heard the movies finishes on an open ending.
So what does Zack Snyder say? Speaking with ComicBookDebate the director said he has no plans to continue. Though he also said “who knows?”, so in Hollywood, as Snyder says, who knows?
You can catch the full interview in the link above, but I got you covered for this part.
“Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League… The truth is, and it’s been widely reported, and I have no issue, this is an old movie. This is a years-old movie I’m working on. The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that’s fine. 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 like I said, I didn’t think I’d be here, so who knows?”
I kinda feel like WB would have to woe Snyder back at this point. Could Justice League Director’s Cut be that good that WB go back cap in hand to Snyder? Honestly I can’t see it, the negative response to BvS was the reason WB got cold feet in the first place. Whilst I enjoyed Man of Steel I had issues with it, but I was not a fan of BvS at all.
Like you though, I’ll definitely be watching Justice League Director’s Cut for pure curiosity. What do you think of Zack Snyder’s comments that he has no plans to continue in the DCEU? As always leave any thoughts below.
