David Zaslav has been the talk of the town ever since he overtook Warner Bros. Discovery as the new CEO. After canceling a $90-million worth of an already finished Batgirl movie, the 62-year-old American has been in the spotlight ever since. However, it seems that after replacing Walter Hamada, David Zaslav is planning to bring back the Snyderverse as the official DCEU storyline.

How David Zaslav is trying to revive the Snyderverse

As per the reports, the new trailer of Shazam‘s sequel Shazam: Fury of the Gods showed several scenes from Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) rather than the Joss Whedon version. Another speculation is that Ben Affleck recently replaced Michael Keaton in Aquaman 2 cameo for reasons of not confusing the audience. Therefore, this seems to imply that Ben Affleck will be reprising his role further in the DCEU.

As per Walter Hamada’s WB, the studio was trying to reboot DC instead of reloading it. With plans to replace Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman (Man of Steel), the old studio wanted to start all of it with a fresh start. However, it seems that the new CEO & president of Warner Bros. Discovery wants things differently.

As per reports, David Zaslav had three choices to continue the DCEU. The first was Joss Whedon’s Justice League (2017), the second would have been to reload the whole franchise with more focus on superheroes like Shazam or Black Adam, and the third choice was to continue Zack Snyder’s vision for the DCEU i.e., Snyderverse.

In a scene from Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Barry Allen aka The Flash is seen traveling back in time to warn a sleepy Bruce Wayne about the future ahead. The newly appointed CEO has the perfect moment to continue the Snyderverse from this point. With alleged plans for a Justice League 2 and 3, and the rumors and the heavy focus on the return of Henry Cavill in the DCEU as Superman, it seems that the Snyderverse can be restored after all.
