The release of 2021’s “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” was a defining moment for the filmmaker’s fanbase. The vitriolic comments from a handful of Snyder’s followers across social media painted a problematic image for his devotees that hangs over their heads to this day. Some fans still weren’t satisfied and demanded that Warner Brothers fully give Snyder back the keys to the DC Extended Universe.
Even the Snyderverse’s biggest fans admit that it’d take a miracle to see it make a comeback. Not only is DC gearing up for a whole new slate of projects under the guidance of James Gunn and Peter Safran, but the last few remnants of Snyder’s DCEU such as “Black Adam” and “The Flash” have performed below expectations at the box office. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no hope of seeing these stories come to fruition. Speaking on The Nerd Queens podcast, Snyder expressed that he once showed interest in bringing his versions of Superman, Batman, and others to comic book form. “I would really enjoy that if it was a possibility,” he said. “There was a time we were gonna do that, and then there was a sort of change of desire, I guess.”
Even if Snyder hasn’t entered serious discussions with DC Comics, his excitement about doing a similar graphic novel spin-off of “Rebel Moon,” as he also expressed, could point to him bringing this idea back. “We’re gonna do a bunch of other things that are just insane, it’s all in the works,” he continued. “I’m not not busy. These DC characters are dear to me, so, who knows?” While fans should keep their expectations realistic, it’s good to know that Snyder still has a passion for his superhero realm.
