There is currently too much going on in the DCU cartel. With new reports coming in every day, the James Gunn and Peter Safran company is a hot topic in the current social media scenario. Reports of Wonder Woman 3 and Man of Steel 2 cancellations raised a storm on the internet. Amidst all this, a post raised quite a buzz on the Internet. The post asked if there are any chances of Zack Snyder returning to helm Wonder Woman 3 as Patty Jenkins’ script is reportedly trashed. The fans took no time to start a debate around the possibility.

Zack Snyder was the co-writer as well as the producer of the first Wonder Woman movie. Following that when Patty Jenkins wrote the story of Wonder Woman 1984 along with ‎Geoff Johns, the movie couldn’t replicate the success of its predecessor.

Can Zack Snyder return in James Gunn’s new leadership?

There are currently a number of reports about the DCU that needs official confirmation from James Gunn and Peter Safran. The duo is currently on their plan of formulating a long-term storyline for the Universe to follow. Even James Gunn took to his Twitter to announce that not all of their decisions will be pleasing at first but they will surely have an impact in the long run.

As all of this was going on, a Tweet by a fan raised a debate on Twitter. Soon after the news of the Gal Gadot movie, a Tweet asked the fans their views if the Wonder Woman threequel is given to Zack Snyder to direct. The script of the third movie which was written by Patty Jenkins has been trashed by Gunn and it is very unlikely she will take a different take again.


Now it should be remembered that all the recent DCU reports suggest that they are on the way to erasing the SnyderVerse. Starting from the doubtful future of various films that started in the Snyder era to the end of Jason Momoa as Aquaman reports, all suggest a bleak fate for the SnyderVerse. Even though all these factors play a huge role, this Tweet gained a lot of attention.

From the reactions of the fans, it can be very well understood that most of them don’t think about the possibility of his return. Still, there is a certain amount of the Man of Steel director’s fans who are optimistic about a potential comeback.


Take a look at the conflicting reactions:



Looking at the present scenario, the chances are very scarce for Zack Snyder to return. On the other hand, James Gunn’s future plans hint at a very different outcome than some people think. Moreover, Zack Snyder is also busy with his projects under the Netflix umbrella so it is highly unlikely that he will get any time even if the studio decides to change its mind.
