In an unexpected move, director Zack Snyder drops a teaser for an upcoming Justice League-related event. Tapped to spearhead Warner Bros.’ efforts to launch their own superhero franchise using DC characters, Snyder helmed three films for the then-known DCEU. While all of them drew strong opinions from the public, nothing was as controversial as Justice League.
A couple of years after the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, Snyder takes it to his official Twitter account to release a cryptic trailer teasing an event related to the project. Watch it below:
Snyder’s announcement comes in the middle of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s rebranding of the DCU. Once Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is released, he will exclusively work with Warner Bros.’ franchise, including writing Superman: Legacy.
What Snyder’s Justice League Event Could Be About
It’s an understatement to say that Snyder’s announcement is surprising. Aside from the DCU’s new storytelling course, the filmmaker has also been busy with his other endeavors, including Netflix’s epic space opera, Rebel Moon. That being said, it’s worth noting that even with Gunn’s moves to rebrand the franchise, petitions for the Snyderverse to continue have persisted.
Considering what has been revealed from the clip, it’s possible that it’s a fan-centered event that will focus on Snyder’s projects and scrapped vision for the DCEU. The filmmaker is known for regularly connecting with his base, and his followers have done so much for the Snyderverse in the last few years, to say the least. Doing something like this would make sense; it’s also a much easier surprise to accomplish.
A better, albeit lesser likely scenario is some kind of effort to continue the so-called Snyderverse separate from what Gunn and Safran are doing in the DCU. Whether that’s in other forms of media like animation or a graphic novel, the aim is to execute Snyder’s DC plan. Whatever the case may be, it’s curious if any of the Justice League main cast is involved in this endeavor.
