Zack Snyder currently has no plans to make more DC Movies after his “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” is released on HBO Max in March.
“Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing ‘Justice League,'” the director said in a new interview with Comic Book Debate. “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.”
He continued, “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?”
Though Snyder was given around $70 million to recut “Justice League” for HBO Max, his latest comments align with a recent profile of DC Films president Walter Hamada, who said that the director of “Man of Steel” and “Batman v. Superman” isn’t part of the studio’s future plans to build a multiverse in its films.
The New York Times last month outlined Hamada’s vision for a DC Movies multiverse that can rival Marvel and provide new content for both theaters and HBO Max. The report clarified that characters who appeared in Snyder’s films — including Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck’s Batman — will continue in one universe, while others, like Robert Pattinson’s Batman, will live on Earth 2.
