Creative freedom and vision is one thing, but Zack Snyder had an idea that would flip DC Comics lore upside down. DC Films is better for not following through with it.

DC fans are spinning circles with the news from DC Films. Right now they may as well slap an under construction sign on the logo, with rumors pointing the studio in several directions.

Some believe that CEO David Zaslav will reboot the DCEU. Others think there’s a chance Zaslav will opt for a soft reboot with the help of Flash. No one knows what’s going to happen beyond the sleight of movies they announced. Black Adam is the next in line with Shazam Fury of the Gods and Flash, Blue Beatle and Aquaman. The DCEU as we know it could change. Thanks to Zack Snyder fanatics actively demanding, then Warner Bros releasing the Snyder Cut, Joss Whedon’s Justice League is a distant bad memory.

Snyder’s Justice League was a success and gave fans an in-depth clear look at the story Snyder wanted to tell. In some ways, Snyder set the foundation for the tone that exists within DCEU films. He was responsible for some great casting outside of Henry Cavill as Superman and Amy Adams as Lois. He brought us Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ezra Miller as Flash. Okay, that last one may not be good at the moment, but you get the picture.

For all the good Snyder was responsible for, Warner Discovery doesn’t appear to want to continue his story — that’s a good thing. Warner Bros Discovery should use elements of Snyder’s foundation, but they are dodging several bullets by opting to steer clear of his story.
