Zack Snyder fans are once again speculating over his probable DC Universe comeback, following a cryptic video from an enthusiastic Jason Momoa. Snyder is most renowned for his work on the interwoven DC comic book adaptations Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League – Snydercut.
Zack Snyder eventually left the DC Universe during the development of 2017 Justice League due to personal reasons. But supporters of the filmmaker have remained outspoken in their expectations that he would return at some time in the future to complete his Justice League trilogy.
Did Jason Momoa Hint at Zack Snyder’s Return to DCU?
Following the appointment of James Gunn and Peter Safran as DCU co-heads, Jason Momoa rushed to Instagram to upload a mysterious video in which he teases learning of “some of the most wonderful news of my life” and blowing a kiss to “maestro.” Fans of Zack Snyder soon flocked to social media to share the video, thinking that the Aquaman actor was hinting towards the director’s return to the DCU, but some believe it was referring to his presence in The Flash or Ben Affleck’s larger comeback as Batman in the future or maybe his Lobo casting rumors are after all true.
Jason Momoa addresses his remark that fueled speculation about Zack Snyder’s possible return to the DC Universe. The Game of Thrones actor, on the other hand, is now clarifying what he meant by his prior comment in an interview. Although he can’t go into detail about what’s going on behind the scenes, he emphasizes that it has absolutely nothing to do with Snyder returning to DC, despite the fact that he couldn’t be happier with Gunn and Safran taking over the franchise. He stated,
“Those two have no relation. It was two days of amazing news. That one is like beyond, that one trumps the DC one. No. No, no, no, no. You have to dig deeper. It’s the Holy Grail. And it’s different than the DC thing. And I really can’t say anything. That’s it.”
Jason Momoa has been increasingly optimistic about the DCU’s future since Gunn took over as co-studio chief at the beginning of the month, lately hinting that his hopes for the franchise are being realized under the new studio management. Given his mysterious video’s cryptic comments, it’s tough to understand who or what he’s referring to for the news the Aquaman star has discovered. Following James Gunn’s posting of an image of the antihero, while opening a new account on the social media site Mastodon, some have hypothesized that Momoa may be in discussions to portray Lobo for the DCU at the same time as the king of Atlantis.
Zack Snyder to be a Part of the Future of DCU
Regardless of if this is what Momoa is alluding to, the issue remains whether Gunn will ever bring Snyder back into the DCU fold. The Peacemaker creator has assured fans that he and Safran are listening to what fans want from the franchise, looking into various DC fan campaigns, but has also stated that they are concentrating on creating the DCU’s larger story plan, thus trying to downplay the possibility of Suicide Squad‘s Ayer Cut seeing the light of day, or Legends of Tomorrow being saved from cancellation in the near future.
It’s still unclear whether Snyder will return to the DCU. His mysterious message, as Momoa stated, has nothing to do with Snyder or the comic book franchise. However, given his tight friendship with Snyder, who was key in casting him as Arthur Curry, or Aquaman, it’s reasonable to guess that he won’t mind seeing the filmmaker return to the universe that he helped launch. In any event, with Henry Cavill returning as Superman, another Justice League film seems more likely.
