Throughout his reign in the DC Extended Universe (which has notably been let to rest now with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom), Zack Snyder made sure to create some of the best and most grounded works of all time.

Yes, 2017’s Justice League couldn’t quite make the splash that it was expected to, but it was only because Warner Bros. had the final say in it, not allowing Snyder enough creative control.

Thus, the original spectacular ideas that the filmmaker had for it never got the chance to show through the film. However, that seemingly changed with his most recent movie, Rebel Moon.

As pointed out by a fan, Zack Snyder seemingly took a core plotline from his unfinished storyline of DC Extended Universe’s Justice League and molded it to perfectly incorporate it into the Rebel Moon universe. And, as expected, fans are having the time of a lifetime after hearing this news.

Zack Snyder’s Unused Justice League Plotline Made Its Way Into Rebel Moon?

When Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came out, despite love from fans, critics refused to budge from their critically panned opinion of it. Thus, even though this paved the way for 2017’s Justice League, it was only greenlit by Warner Bros. without much creative freedom allowed to the director.

This constant pestering by the higher-ups to change the storyline into what the film ended up becoming, along with a personal family tragedy (his daughter’s death), eventually led Snyder to leave the project midway. Because of this, all his ideas for DCEU’s Justice League were left unexplored in the franchise as well.

However, instead of letting all those ideas go down to waste, the Man of Steel helmer seemingly decided to incorporate some of them into his newly made saga, Rebel Moon. Recently, a fan (@theeSNYDERVERSE) pointed out the same while taking to X to share the striking similarities between the descriptions of both projects.

According to this, Snyder apparently decided for DCEU’s Justice League to have a scene where the band of DC’s superheroes would gather together to “have this last supper sort of reckoning, where they would all tell their stories” on the night before their “big mission”. As it turned out, something similar was destined for the Rebel Moon rebels as well.

The other picture attached to the post is the screenshot of the summary of the soon-to-be-released second film from the Rebel Moon saga, Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver. In this, the highlighted lines mark out: “On the eve of their battle, the warriors must face the truths of their own pasts, each revealing why they fight.”

Comparing both storylines gives only one result: Zack Snyder did, in fact, take one of his core unused plotlines that he created for DCEU’s Justice League and put it in the Rebel Moon saga instead.

After looking at this, fans have mixed opinions as to whether to grieve the loss of a masterpiece that DC Extended Universe’s Justice League could have been or be happy that the filmmaker finally got to make use of his spectacular ideas.
