Justice League 3: Superman’s Son Would Have Become DCEU’s Next Batman


WarnerMedia’s CEO, Ann Sarnoff just confirmed that Zack Snyder’s trilogy is complete with the Snyder Cut. Zack Snyder’s Justice League won’t be branching out into JL 2 and 3. The performance of this film has justified its existence. Moreover, people are asking for the restoration of SnyderVerse. But sadly, Warner Bros. isn’t ready to comply just yet. We’ll have to wait and see whether the fans can get their verdict changed as they did last year. But for now, let’s just look at the plans Snyder had for Justice League 3.


In the last few days, Snyder has revealed several details about Justice League 2 and 3. He said that it would feature an ultimate team-up sequence involving the Atlanteans, Amazons, armies of land, Justice League, Green Lantern Corps., certain villains, and several other heroes. He also revealed that “All of the New Gods would be rolling in at some point.”  And now, he has revealed what would have happened at the very end of the film:

“It was going to be Lois and Superman’s son, he doesn’t have any powers, and then he was going to end up being the new Batman. Twenty years later, on the anniversary of [Batman’s] death, they take young Bruce Kent down to the Batcave and they say, ‘Your Uncle Bruce would’ve been proud if you did this. Anyway, something like that.”

Lois is Pregnant

Bruce congratulated Clark towards the end of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. That and the pregnancy test kit we saw earlier in the film confirmed that Lois was expecting a child. Despite the Knightmare sequence and the possibility of Lois’s demise, the finale of the original DCEU would have seen that child grow and take over the role of Batman. Bruce Wayne would have got a Tony Stark kinda sacrificial moment in the finale. So, it would have been surprising, and quite fitting for Superman’s son to be named after, and inspired by his uncle Bruce.

Since it happens in the distant future, we might have actually got a setup for Batman Beyond. Instead of Terry McGinnis, Bruce Kent would have been the Batman here. Snyder’s take on the DCEU is certainly quite unique. So, seeing this sort of an ending would have surely given fans something fresh and unique. Too bad that Snyder had to reveal his plans verbally instead of getting his shot to complete his ultimate vision.
