It often feels like the DCEU was just a hot mess after the departure of Zack Snyder from Warner Bros. before the completion of 2017’s Justice League, which was later completed by Joss Whedon. The vision that the director had of the DCEU and the superheroes within that universe was cut short due to a family emergency that led him to quit the project entirely, which left DC Films to do the damage control.
And the damage control came in disguise, which ended up doing more damage than controlling it, leading it to an irreversible state beyond redemption. Thus, we now have James Gunn who has decided to restart from scratch, which has led to the expulsion of Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, and Ben Affleck from the upcoming DCU. But there might still be hope for the Justice League, as Netflix might want to take an offer they can’t refuse.
Fans Want Netflix To Revive The Snyderverse With Justice League 2!
As if the whole DC Extended Universe had collapsed after the exit of Zack Snyder, every decision that was made by WB Discovery seemed like a miss, no matter how much they wanted to do otherwise. Justice League proved to be the nail in the coffin for Henry Cavill, who was benched for almost half a decade after the events of the epic crossover. But after The Snyder Cut started streaming on HBO Max, the desire for the return of the Snyderverse grew to a new height.
Now, with newfound determination, fans of the Snyderverse and Zack Snyder are looking for ways to bring the lost vision of the director back, and this time, they have turned to the savior called Netflix with the request to buy the rights to the Snyderverse. This new campaign has caught wind on the internet lately, and the best part is the fact that Zack Snyder himself is keeping an eye on this movement.
After a user on Vero posted a link to the video that explained the whole meaning of what #SellZSJLtoNetflix means and what will be the outcomes of this movement if it is successful. And surprisingly, Zack Snyder himself seems to be pleased with the possibility.
But as far as signing a deal with the streaming giant is concerned, it doesn’t look like Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav is not too enthusiastic about it especially when you look at his decision to make James Gunn and Peter Safran Co-CEOs of DC Films, who have yet to prove their worth to Zaslav with their plans going forward.
Will Netflix Take The Offer?
As it stands now, the most logical conclusion is yes, but the answer might not be as simple. While WB might’ve ditched Snyder’s vision, they still see the potential in it, or more specifically, in the fandom. Even after all these years, loyal fans of Snyder work day and night to bring the return of the Snyderverse, which is something remarkable. Thus, if Gunn and Safran were to fail in their vision, then Zaslav would have a backup plan in hand.
