Following the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, fans are clamoring for even more of his vision of the DC cinematic universe and, apparently, WarnerBros has taken notice.
After all, Justice League was originally envisioned to be the mid-point of a five-part film franchise, with Snyder saying in an interview with Vanity Fair, “When I made the film originally, it was part of a five-part trilogy. There were two more episodes of the Justice League to be shot.”
Taking that cue, fans are now demanding that Warner Bros #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, with the hashtag trending on Twitter! There’s even a Change.org petition going on calling for WB to restore the Snyder Verse.
Adding fuel to the fire are claims that Warner Bros are “interested” in doing exactly that. Grace Randolph, creator and host of Beyond The Trailer, tweeted that “due to the overwhelming hype for #SnyderCut suddenly WB etc are interested.”
She reiterates that she’s hearing “exciting things from multiple sources re Snyder Cut.” Apparently, Justice League 2 and 3 might now be possible and that some WB executives are even considering having Zack Snyder direct Wonder Woman 3.
Of course, all this depends on how the Snyder Cut performs. At the end of the day, it’s all about the return on investment, and the potential upside gain studio executives are looking for by investing further into this franchise.
Even Snyder himself has come out with a message of thanks to the fans, who apparently “overloaded a few platforms… with your interest.” Cryptically, he goes on to add, “That truly means the world to me. We’re working on that, so stay tuned!”
Will #RestoreTheSnyderVerse amount to anything? Who knows. Then again, for a while there, we never thought that the Snyder Cut would ever be assembled.
Yet, here we are.
