Now, these sources came to us separate from one another: one who reportedly close ties to Netflix and the other who claims to be linked with HBO Max.
They have informed me that both HBO Max and Netflix are trying to get Zack Snyder locked into an exclusivity deal with them.
Basically, what this means is that HBO Max wants Snyder to make his future projects just for them, and Netflix does as well.
So, it seems as though Snyder is a man who’s very much in demand, and this could have something to do with both the popularity of Snyder’s Justice League cut which was released on HBO Max today and the fact that Netflix is reportedly very pleased with Army Of The Dead.
Zack Snyder is being courted by both Netflix and HBO Max
Here’s what my source with close ties to HBO Max had to say:
I’m hearing that HBO Max is desperately trying to get Snyder to sign an exclusivity deal with them. This would be the first for the company, but they are so happy with Justice League – reaction and the movie itself – that they want him to do more and work solely for them. No one else.
And here’s what my source at Netflix had to say:
Netflix wants Snyder to make films just for them. They’re trying to get him to sign a similar deal to the one Fincher signed. This would mean that his next projects would come out only on Netflix and be Netflix exclusives. No word on whether he’s accepted or declined yet.
The source then added:
I’m hearing that they are in love with Army Of The Dead and want a sequel. They are also really pleased with the prequel animated series he produced for them. They just want to keep on working with him. It’s a good working relationship for both parties.
Who will Zack choose: HBO Max or Netflix?
So, it sounds like it’s a good time to be Zack and Deborah Snyder right now.
We literally just posted our SPOILER-FREE review of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed the film.
Therefore, we could be hearing an official announcement regarding Snyder’s next project very soon indeed.
