Zack Snyder’s Justice League will drop on HBO Max as a four-part miniseries filled to bursting with footage yet unseen. Snyder has said previously that there are about two and a half hours of unseen footage he captured all those years ago that will go into the project.
With such a heavy investment and so much pent-up anticipation, fans have been wondering whether Snyder could be coming back into the DC Extended Universe in an even bigger way. While fans wait with bated breath for Zack Snyder’s Justice League to come out, they should also brace themselves for the possibility that this will be the last Snyder DC film to come out, however, and that scoop comes directly from Snyder himself.
Zack Snyder believes his time in the DCEU is done after finishing Justice League
He recently sat down with Ping Pong Flix to discuss the project. At one point during the interview, he was asked if he would come back to direct another DC superhero film if offered the opportunity. While it sounds like he’d be up for another trip to the DC universe, he firmly thinks his time is done.
He said of the possibility, “My honest answer is that I don’t have any expectation that there would be more movies than this. If that happened, that would be amazing, but that bridge is far away and it is what it is.”
Snyder’s time in the DCEU began with 2013’s Man of Steel. He followed it up with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which began laying the groundwork for what was supposed to be an epic storyline following the Justice League as they take on Darkseid. While the film we got in 2017 wasn’t exactly the step Snyder intended to take, it looks like he’s finally in total control for the upcoming HBO Max series.
He went on to say, “Listen, you have Wonder Woman, you have Aquaman, you have this new Flash movie. All of it is — they’re all branches from a tree that I just — that I planted a long time ago. And I couldn’t be prouder.”
For now, fans can just look forward to finally seeing Zack Snyder’s Justice League in all its glory when it comes out in 2021.
