Although fans of Zack Snyder have already started an online movement requesting Warner Bros. allow the director to continue his vision beyond the upcoming release of his cut of “Justice League” on HBO Max, the man himself has no such plans.
“Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League,” Snyder explained on the ComicBook Debate podcast.
“The truth is, and it’s been widely reported, and I have no issue, this is an old movie. This is a years-old movie I’m working on. The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that’s fine. As far as what I did and as far as what my vision for what I wanted to do with these characters and the journey I wanted them to go on, it’s well known that I planned on more movies, five movies or something, but I’m busy. I’ve got a lot going on. Is it cool that the fans have so much faith in the trajectory? Yes, it’s amazing, and I couldn’t be happier and I’m excited for them to see Justice League so they can really drink the entire elixir of Justice League. But, would I continue? I have no plan to. But as I said, I didn’t think I’d be here, so who knows?”
Expected to premiere in March, Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” is a 4-part event that will be available on HBO Max.
