Zack Snyder’s Justice League was one of the best movies in the DC universe and his plan for DCEU would have included some next-level world-building. Though he could only show us parts of his vision for DC, it was far better than Joss Whedon’s Justice League, according to popular opinion.
Snyder hints that when Darkseid finally arrives on earth, complete chaos would spread across the world with criminals running around, and big names like Lex Luthor and The Riddler teaming up with Batman on their tail.
A fan-made video was recently released that shows what could have happened if Justice League 2 and 3 had been released.
Batman’s Last Message to the World
Bruce Wayne in his last message conveys that he is currently engaging in a suicide mission by entering Darkseid’s fortress. As we all know that Batman is very clever and always has his calculation up to the point. So for him to go on a suicide mission must mean that he is the last stand and everyone else capable of fighting against Darkseid has fallen, which includes Superman. Bruce Wayne further adds in his message that it will be humanity’s final stand against Darkseid in order to change the past which in turn can change the future.
“I am going to enter Darkseid fortress, so there’s a high chance I won’t return. This is a suicide mission to change the past and the future. We are in the final battle of Justice League”
This statement could only mean that Batman has a plan to change the past, which is a feat only possible for the Flash. By attaining a desired velocity he can break into the speed force and can travel through time. But for doing that he would require a lot of energy and the only thing that could sustain such energy is a Mother Box which would most probably be in possession of Darkseid. So it would make sense for Batman to enter Darkseid’s domain to take one of the Mother Boxes.
What if SnyderVerse Continued?
Zack Snyder in an interview with GQ said the events that followed would have brought Darkseid to Earth and Lex Luthor teaming up with The Riddler who has deciphered the anti-life equation. Batman would have been on their tail because the anti-life equation is an ancient and otherworldly mathematical equation that could even bring the dead back to life. It could also grant control to the user over an entire species. It was so deadly that Darkseid arrived on earth looking for it.
Far into the plot, Lois Lane’s death trips Superman to the dark side and he eliminates the Justice League one by one as they were not able to save her. But with the help of a Mother Box, Flash travels into the past to inform Bruce Wayne to save Lois Lane and give an edge over Darkseid as Superman was their only hope of fighting against him.
However the Justice League’s plan fails and the Flash is forced to travel through time, but this time he arrives at a universe where Batman sacrifices himself to save Lois Lane and in turn gives Superman enough time to push back Darkseid into retreating from Earth for the second time. This would have been a hugely time-consuming and drawn-out battle that the fans would have loved.
