Hope For Zack Snyder Directing Justice League 2 Still Remains as Industry Insider Confirms The Flash Director Andy Muschietti May No Longer Be in the Race

Hope For Zack Snyder Directing Justice League 2 Still Remains as Industry Insider Confirms The Flash Director Andy Muschietti May No Longer Be in the Race

For DCU, Justice League 2 will be a priority #1 project in the coming years, considering how David Zaslav has slowly but surely been building toward an expansive interconnected universe. Man of Steel 2The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost KingdomWonder Woman 3, and Batman’s multiple appearances throughout DC set up a narrative that will eventually conjoin in the team-up movie.

David Zaslav needs to be concerned about such a significant comeback on DC’s part and as such assign a director that can redeem the past decade of erratic functioning of the DCEU while also living up to the hype of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

True vision and ingenuity combined with a penchant for aesthetic and cinematic art brought out the best in the SnyderVerse trilogy. However, Zack Snyder‘s creative disagreements and an unexpected tragedy set aside the plans that could have been branded as a modern classic instead of leading up to the subsequent years of controversies. The currently restructured Warner Bros. Discovery, its indomitable CEO David Zaslav, and his ambitious plans for the DC Universe bring promising news for the franchise with his level-headed stance and his dynamic approach toward world-building within 6 months of his arrival.

Talks of Justice League 2 this early on in his tenure aren’t surprising at all, considering how major projects concerning the individual JL superheroes are already in the work. It also makes sense why despite the building nonsensical adventure of Ezra Miller, Zaslav pushed The Flash for a definitive launch. As far as that movie went, early test screening reactions were off the roof and that says something about director Andy Muschietti‘s expertise in helming CBM projects.

The early success of The Flash now merges with the discussions about the new Justice League 2 director and rumors indicate that Muschietti is the next in line for Zaslav’s selection-by-elimination roster of directorial candidates. Whether Zack Snyder fits into any of those plans is still debatable.

Industry Insider Sparks Hope for Zack Snyder’s DCU Return

On The John Campea Show, some recent developments regarding the current functioning of DCU’s Justice League 2 were revealed along with updates about whether the rumors about Muschietti’s role as director were standing on substantial grounds.

“We just went over the reasons why he should be considered a valid candidate for it. However, I text messaged somebody last night, who is not [Warner Bros. CEO] David Zaslav, or Alan Horn… but who’s a little bit on the inside and I just brought that up. Now, you guys got to understand I am not some Hollywood Insider. Nine times out of ten that I send out these emails or text messages I just never get a response. But about one times out of ten I do; and the response I got was, when I was asking about Andy Muschietti, and ‘Justice League 2’, all they said was, ‘I haven’t heard of that.’ So I mean, maybe that’s worth something, maybe it’s not.”

Ever since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over the reins of DC Films, numerous promising updates about the franchise’s hopeful future have taken shape. Gunn’s intricate involvement with the narrative of DC, his good relationship with Snyder, and a very suggestive tweet in the recent past indicating that he hears the fandom’s wishes had also given way to talks about the Man of Steel director’s return.

David Zaslav’s reign made sure to uproot the problematic aspects of the previous management before moving ahead with any plan and one of the major obstructions that had tied up DCEU’s progress in knots was Walter Hamada’s regime. Just as Henry Cavill‘s return was innately linked to Hamada’s exit, so too might Snyder make a grand comeback under the new and more liberating administration.
