Zack Snyder’s Justice League was a masterpiece with exceptional CGI and 4-hours packed with superhero action. And now everyone wants to know when we will get Justice League 2?
Who can blame them! Snyder’s cut left DC fans expectant because the movie ended on amazing cliffhangers, new DC heroes, and some tragic deaths. Needless to say, DC fans want Warner Bros to immediately start filming on SnyderVerse – but it might be something that we will never see.
There is always hope as long as Superman is alive; that’s what the S on stands for, after all. However, it might be something DC superheroes cannot help with. After the release of the movie, Zack Snyder spoke to the media about it.
For those who haven’t watched Justice League Snyder Cut, you can watch it exclusively on HBO Max. For DC fans in Australia, you can unblock HBO Max in Australia with a VPN to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League without any restrictions. Do keep in mind that you will have to pick the right streaming platform for yourself as it is not available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or other streaming platforms. It is only exclusively available on HBO Max.
Justice League 2? Is the DC Sequel Happening or Not?
As much as we want a sequel, according to WarnerMedia Studio CEO, Ann Sarnoff, there might never be a sequel to Snyder’s Cut. In an interview to the Variety, Anna said:
“I appreciate that they love Zack’s work and we are very thankful for his many contributions to DC…but we’re very excited about the plans we have for all the multi-dimensional DC characters that are being developed right now.”
So, in short, don’t hold your breath for the DC sequel.
Snyder ended the Justice League on a massive cliffhanger, including the “Knightmare” scene, new characters, death of our favorite superheroes, and Batman and Joker’s interaction. The film has received massive reception and positive reviews from the fans so we might get a sequel but the chances of that happening are very low.
Here’s what Zack Snyder said about Justice League Sequel
Zack Snyder said that Justice League 2 is not happening, and as of writing, there are no plans for the DC sequel either. Fortunately, Snyder was kind enough to outline the sequel so we die-hard fans will get some kind of closure. Speaking to New York Times, Snyder said that the Earth will fall as Darkside conquers when Superman succumbs to the Anti Life Equation all because of one mistake. Then Flash is sent back in time to prevent that mistake from happening, thus saving the Earth.
Snyder elaborated that when the Darkside invades the Earth after losing the mother boxes and defeat of Steppenwolf in the first Justice League. During the events, Lex Luther obviously teams up with the villain. Meanwhile, Superman asks Batman to guard and protect Lois Lane while he fights the Darkside.
He further elaborates that “Lex tells Darkseid that the key to Superman’s weaknesses is killing Lois Lane. For whatever reason, Batman fails. Darkseid comes back and kills Lois. Batman fails; he hesitates. They were in an argument.” Basically, Batman is distracted and fails to protect Lois Lane as she is killed by Darkside.
For those who don’t know much about SnyderVerse, in the original version, while protecting Lois Lane, Batman falls in love with her. In both versions, Lois Lane is destined to die at the hands of Darkside, and Batman is once again riddled with guilt over the death of someone he knows. After Lois’s death, Superman falls to the Anti-Life Equation – old power that gives full control over anything it touches to its users (Darkside).
This is where we get a sneak-peak of the “Knightmare “ scene at the end of the first Justice League. During the ending, Batman teams up with Mera, Flash, Cyborg, Deathstroke, and Joker. By this time, Darkside has conquered the Earth, and Superman pops up to kill his former superhero friends.
During an interview with Esquire, Snyder said, the movie is basically about “a ragtag group of Justice League members pulling off a crazy mission to steal a Mother Box from this half-destroyed cathedral in Gotham and get it back to the Batcave in order to use it to power the cosmic treadmill to jump Flash back in time.” But, let’s not get our hopes up.
Basically, Justice League would have ended in the “Infinity Wars Style” with a total of three parts. When talking about Justice League 3, Synder said, “What happens in the post-apocalyptic world is, Cyborg works on an equation to use a Mother Box to jump Flash back in time to warn Bruce about this moment, where he didn’t have the courage to sacrifice himself to save Lois.”
As a result, Lois doesn’t die, and everything changes. Superman doesn’t succumb to the Anti-Life Equation. All superheroes unite again as Aquaman brings forces from Atlantis, Diana leads forces from Themyscira, and Superman and Flash lead humans against Darkside.
In his interview to the New York Times, Snyder further added: “And then the big battle where we beat [Darkseid]. When Darkseid comes to Earth, in the movie that you’ll never see, the armies of Earth all unite again, as they did before. This time there would be aircraft carriers and Special Forces guys, all the armies of the world would come together, as well as Atlanteans, rising out of the ocean and the Themyscirans coming off their island. That was our big finale. But it’s a long drum roll and guitar solo to get there.”
It all seems too exciting, but chances are we might never see Justice League 2 and Justice League 3. Fortunately, Snyder was kind enough to give DC fans a good idea of what happens. But who knows, the hashtags and petitions might work, and we might get a sequel that we all need badly.
