For as much fan support as Snyder has received bringing the Snyder Cut to life, it seems increasingly likely that this will be something closer to a one-time event than a continuing trend.
In a recent interview on the ComicBook Debate YouTube channel, Justice League director Zack Snyder discussed his experience working on the Snyder Cut, specifically how he didn’t believe it would become a reality at first. He also indicated that he most likely won’t be continuing with the franchise after this release
“I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League. Do I think….and look, it’s been widely reported and it’s, and I have no issue, you know, this is an old movie, this is a three-year old movie I’m working on. The DCU universe has branched off and done its own thing, and that’s fine…It’s well known that I planned on more movies, it was five movies or something, but I’m busy, I got a lot going on.”
Ultimately, Snyder doubled down on the fact that he has “no plan” to continue working in the DC universe following the release of the Snyder Cut.
“As far as ‘would I continue,’ I have no plan to.”
Snyder has spent years building the DCEU from the ground up, directing the first two movies in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He has also served as an executive producer on every other movie in the franchise other than 2020’s Birds of Prey, making this series the most extensive work of his career over most of the past decade.
