While Netflix has seemingly killed off mid-budget movies by killing physical media, on the bright side, they’ve also been a home for David Fincher and also completed the last Orson Welles movie. Following Zack Snyder’s exit from the DCEU, the studio welcomed the BVS director with open arms and will witness the director’s highly anticipated space opera, Rebel Moon.

And recently Netflix further welcomed most of Snyder’s DCEU, except some notable releases, including his 4-hour-long cut of Justice League, which debuted on Max (formerly HBO Max) in 2021.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Isn’t Coming to Netflix Anytime Soon

While the addition of 12 DC movies, including most of the Snyderverse alongside The Batman and The Suicide Squad was met with jubilation, the absence of ZSJL on the list didn’t sit well with fans. Released back in 2021 after excessive fan campaigns, Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a substantial improvement from its predecessor. While fans of the director are once again raising their voice for the inclusion of ZSJL, further hoping that WBD sells the rights of Snyderverse, it’s reasonable to assume the latter may never come to fruition.

And things aren’t much better in ZSJL‘s case too, as scoopers claimed Warner Bros. Discovery reportedly isn’t keen on lending one of their biggest Max releases to Netflix. While it can’t be said for sure if these are true or not, WBD’s refusal to give the rights of ZSJL does seem reasonable, as the four-hour-long cut originally debuted as a Max original. So, the chances of the studio giving its rights to Netflix are pretty slim.

A Sequel to 300 Is Officially on the Cards

Although the continuation of Snyderverse most probably isn’t going to see the end of the tunnel, a sequel to the director’s 300, considered his best work to date, is officially on the cards. With Zack Snyder and his producer wife Deborah Snyder regaining the rights to Blood and Ashes, which was originally pitched as a sequel to the action epic, things are looking good for fans of the movie. Per The Hollywood Reporter, he was quoted saying,

“We got the rights back so we can make if we want it. I don’t know what the marketplace is for an incredibly homoerotic, super violent, super s-xual movie. But maybe it’s perfect.”

With Rebel Moon 3 being greenlit by Netflix and Blood and Ashes on the card for the filmmaker, it’s evident that Zack Snyder has moved on from his DC roots. However, while he has no plans of returning to DC, the director is open to making an exception if he is given the chance to adapt Frank Miller’s TDKR, which served as the major inspiration for his version of Batman.
