WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff recently spoke with Variety about the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the highly anticipated DC project that was met with critical and public acclaim acclaim since it’s HBO Max debut on March 18. Since then, many have wondered if a sequel to the film will be developed, especially given some of the plot arcs that are set up. Many have demanded a continuation of this tale, evidenced by #RestoretheSnyderverse trending on Twitter for days after Justice League’s release. On this fan demand, Sarnoff stated:
“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.”
Sarnoff instead cited the production of upcoming DC projects as the future of the brand. The Batman, The Suicide Squad, and more are currently in various stages of development.
This news is sure to be disappointing for the fans that enjoyed the Snyder Cut, but as the director of that film said himself, never say never. The release of the allusive Snyder Cut of Justice League seemed far fetched not so long ago, and now the film is out with newly shot scenes that set up potential sequels even included. If Snyder’s sequels are never realized, fans can be happy that his version of Justice League was released, as well as having other DC films and shows to look forward to.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is now streaming on HBO Max.
