Zack Snyder’s Vision For The DCEU Did Not Sync Up With DC’s

Last month, Vulture wrote up an in depth piece about the future of the DC Extended Universe (Which it isn’t actually called?… Or is it?), containing interviews with Geoff Johns and DC president Diane Nelson, who mostly discussed changes that were made behind-the-scenes and the fact their vision for the DCEU differed from Zack Snyder’s original vision.

Abraham Riesman, the author of the Vulture article, was on the Batman On Film podcast this weekend, bringing with him a new quote that didn’t make it into the original article:

“That was actually a quote that didn’t show up in the finished piece, but that Diane [Nelson] gave me. It was to the effect of ‘we are a director-driven place and Zack had a vision that didn’t necessarily sync up with what our vision of these characters is, but we respect that he wanted to go for that and that’s part of our philosophy’.”

The idea that Zack Snyder’s version of the DCEU, jump-started with Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, isn’t what DC had in mind has been rumored for a while. But, I believe this is the first time we’ve heard it from someone as high up the DC ladder as Nelson.

Since Screen Rant originally published the quote, Riesman has clarified on twitter that though Zack Snyder’s vision wasn’t in line with DC, “Nelson expressed NO ill-feeling toward Snyder to me.”
