DC Chief Creative Officer-Publisher Jim Lee says the DC Extended Universe has no plans to proceed the SnyderVerse. After Christopher Nolan rejuvenated Batman on the big screen with his Dark Knight trilogy, Warner Bros. relied on director Zack Snyder to do the exact same with Superman. The success of 2013’s Man of Steel assisted position Snyder as the dreamer that would spearhead Warner Bros.’ common superhero world the DCEU; fans typically describe Snyder’s contributions as the SnyderVerse, which is comprised of parts from the director’s initial 5-movie prepare for the franchise.
Unfortunately, 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was critically panned and also, in 2017, Snyder was forced to leave Justice League’s production adhering to a family members catastrophe. The overwhelmingly significant #ReleaseTheSnyderCut project resulted in Snyder’s Justice League debuting on HBO Max. Regardless of the 4-hour cut’s dc, wb and success Films have chosen to abandon the SnyderVerse and also remodel the DCEU with titles like The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker, as well as the upcoming Black Adam. The Flash movie (Ezra Miller debate aside) is also poised to shelve the SnyderVerse timeline while benching Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman in favor of Michael Keaton, Batgirl, and also Supergirl (and also Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader, who differs from the DCEU).
At San Diego Comic-Con (through @themarvelmaniac), Jim Lee talked about being involved with much of the DCEU’s movies. When asked by a fan in the target market if he’s working on anything with Snyder, Lee exposed there are currently no plans to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse. Check out the full quote below:
The release of Snyder’s Justice League was treated as the conclusion of the tale that started in Man of Steel and simultaneously strengthened HBO Max clients. Lee’s remarks aren’t unusual as WB/DC Films have actually distanced themselves from Snyder at every turn, and also opinion has actually much from been alleviated. Today, Rolling Stone published a puzzling article mentioning that 13 percent of the accounts sustaining Justice League’s Snyder Cut project were fake. The ordinary variety of phony accounts/bots connected with a trending topic is around 3 to 5 percent. Still, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut was far from an average project, and this confirms that 87 percent of accounts were valid, which is presumably an astonishing number of followers. With Snyder and also WB remaining to generate negative press, it’s unlikely reconciliation is something either event is interested in.
The SnyderVerse characters still have a future in the DCEU. That said, also if Cavill takes his cape out of the closet for Man of Steel 2, Snyder’s future is with Netflix on the Army of the Dead cosmos and his upcoming sci-fi movie, Rebel Moon.
