Zack Snyder has no plans to make anymore DC Extended Universe movies.
The 54-year-old filmmaker is currently working on a director’s cut of Justice League – which is due to be released in March – but whilst he hasn’t ruled out making a DC movie again, he thinks its unlikely.
He shared: “Look, I never thought I’d be here doing this. I didn’t think I’d be finishing Justice League. 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.”
And Zack is grateful fans have “so much faith” in his filmmaking.
Speaking to ComicBook Debate, he added: “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 like I said, I didn’t think I’d be here, so who knows?”
The new material will form part of a four-episode limited series that will air on HBO Max which would have been his intended edit of the 2017 DC Extended Universe blockbuster.
