Zack Snyder (Currently) Has ‘No Plans’ To Make More DC Films After His ‘Justice League’ Director’s Cut

Following a New York Times profile with DC Films head Walter Hamada that reported studio execs view Zack Snyder‘s director cut of Justice League as a “creative cul-de-sac,” there’s been heavily speculation about whether or not he’ll have chance to make more DC Comics film. (Fans even started the social media campaign: #RestoreTheSnyderVerse.) Recently, longtime Snyder advocate Kevin Smith defended the director by revealing that the ending to the Snyder Cut of Justice League is “very not a cul-de-sac,” and “you can keep going with the story.” But just as that information suggested that the SnyderVerse still has a chance, Snyder confirmed to ComicBook Debate that he has no plans to make more DC Comics films after restoring his original version of Justice League. Via Collider:

“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.”

Snyder did add, however, that he never thought his cut of Justice League would see the light of day, and now, it’s on its way to a heavily-hyped release on HBO Max. So while he plans to pursue his other projects for Netflix, anything is possible. “I didn’t think I’d be here,” Snyder said. “So who knows?”
