Zack Snyder’s Justice League is not getting a sequel. This news is confirmed by Warner Media Studios CEO Ann Sarnoff. The movie is now streaming on HBO Max, it’s not exactly a new movie but an extended and re-edited version of Justice League which was released back in 2017. Back in 2017, Zack Snyder stepped down from the Justice League project and the project was handed to Joss Whedon.
We finally got to see Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League. A four-hour-long movie that is currently rated 8.4/10 on IMDb. Joss Whedon’s Justice League has a 6.3/10 rating on IMDb. Zack Snyder ended the movie on a cliffhanger and fans were hoping for a sequel. Trends like #RestoreSnyderVerse are still ongoing. However, WarnerBros confirmed that there will be no sequel. WarnerMedia Studios CEO Ann Sarnoff said:
I appreciate that they love Zack’s work and we are very thankful for his many contributions to DC. We’re just so happy that he could bring his cut of the “Justice League” to life because that wasn’t in the plan until about a year ago. With that comes the completion of his trilogy. We’re very happy we’ve done this, but we’re very excited about the plans we have for all the multi-dimensional DC characters that are being developed right now.
We wanted to give Zack the opportunity to complete his vision in a four-hour movie, which is impossible to do in theaters. We’re happy that we have HBO Max to let the rope out as it were and allow the fans to see all four hours of Zack’s vision.
We want fans to spot Easter Eggs at the end of the movie that relates to a movie or shows coming up or a show about to launch on HBO Max. We can harken back to something that was said in The Flash movie or there could be a cameo appearance of one of the actors from one movie into a current show.
We finally managed to see the interaction between Batman and Jared Leto’s Joker. Moreover, in Snyder’s version of Justice League, Flash was given a bigger role than saving people by running around. Barry saved everyone by reversing time. Flash is also getting a standalone movie which will release in 2022 and will follow the “Flashpoint plot”.
