This report comes to us from our good friends over at Geekosity.
According to Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton, executives at Warner Bros. Pictures is no longer thinking of Zack Snyder’s Justice League as part of the official DCEU.
However, Sutton makes it clear that this does not mean that it’s the end of the SnyderVerse – much the contrary.
He’s saying that HBO Max is going to take the mantle on the SyderVerse and carry on making the Justice League films with him.
However, they will not be considered to be ‘canon DCEU’ by Warner Bros. Pictures.
So, basically, Warner Bros. Pictures is letting Snyder do his thing over at HBO Max.
WB is not considering Zack Snyder’s Justice League to be DCEU canon
Here’s what Mikey Sutton had to say on the matter:
I’m told that WB execs didn’t care for Whedon’s Justice League. Nevertheless, they were optimistic about the movie until it was released, and the critics hit the fans. The fans likewise threw the crap out the window. Rumours are abound that WB still blamed Zack Snyder for Justice League‘s hit-or-miss results (I’m being too polite now). They said that Whedon didn’t have much to work with.
He then added a quote from one of his sources, who told Mikey:
WB felt the movie couldn’t be salvaged because what was there was poor.
Mikey added that Dwayne Johnson is a big fan of Zack Snyder’s and really wants Henry Cavill to play Superman in his Black Adam movie, which might be a bit of an issue for Warner Bros. Pictures.
Mikey then said that: “Warner Bros. just doesn’t want any references to Zack Snyder’s DCEU”.
