Time has not been kind to DC fans. Ever since 2017’s infamous Justice League, Warner Bros. hasn’t known what to do with its roster of recognizable heroes. What they did know, however, is what they didn’t want and that’s Zack Snyder’s SnyderVerse.
The SnyderVerse is the term for director Zack Snyder’s vision for an interconnected DC universe. While it began with 2013’s Man of Steel and continued with Batman v Superman, the director’s vision was cut short when he was forced to bow out of directing Justice League. During his absence, the studio seized the opportunity to alter course.
New Warner Bros. Heads Reject Zack Snyder’s Justice League
As reported by Rolling Stone, the new heads of Warner Bros. Discovery have no intention of reviving the SnyderVerse or partnering with director Zack Snyder in the future.
In fact, sources say the studio has actually taken deliberate steps to separate itself from Snyder and his cut of Justice League, including limiting documentary filmmaker Leslie Iwerks from using footage from the 2021 film, since the 2017 version is the only one they recognize.
The Release the Snyder Cut movement was, no doubt, an embarrassment for Warner Bros. and one that simply wouldn’t go away. For months, fans refused to let the studio forget how its interference led to a poor product and cut a director’s vision short during a time of personal tragedy.
The fact that a scene from the Snyder Cut won “Best Cheer Moment” at the 2022 Oscars, and then was reported to have been the result of bots likely didn’t help either.
And so, even though the powers-that-be have changed, for now, the situation remains the same.
