There have been calls from the SnyderVerse fandom to have Netflix buy Zack Snyder’s Justice League 2, and the filmmaker has reacted to the online movement. He did this on Vero (via The Direct), which is his social media platform of choice.
The SnyderVerse fandom is easily the most vocal and passionate fandom out there. They are always getting hashtags trending on Twitter, and even when it looks like all hope is lost, they still keep the fight alive.
Honestly, it really looks like the SnyderVerse is dead over at Warner Bros Discovery. However, the fans will never let up, and it really seems as though the filmmaker appreciates that.
The fandom started a new trend on Twitter. They’ve been getting the hashtags ‘#SellZSJLToNetflix‘ and ‘#SellSnyderVerseToNetflix‘ trending on Twitter. One fan posted a link to an article explaining what this new movement is all about on Vero, and guess what, Snyder himself liked the post!

It has to be said that the filmmaker likes a lot of things on Vero, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that there might actually be a possibility of one day seeing him continue the SnyderVerse over at Netflix.
Actually, it would be nigh on impossible for that ever to happen. The IP is all owned by Warner Bros. Pictures and it’s something that they will never license out.
It’s going to be made even more difficult by the fact that DC Studios’ new heads, James Gunn and Peter Safran, will never allow that to happen.
The only thing that could happen is for them to license out some properties to Netlfix for them to go ahead and make their own shows. This is what they did with The Sandman.
However, I also highly doubt that Warner Bros Discovery will greenlight another deal as they did for The Sandman. The company’s CEO, David Zaslav, has made it very clear that he doesn’t like Netflix’s payment structure.
They could possibly make more money by licensing out their IPs to other platforms, such as Prime Video.
Could Netflix actually buy the rights to the SnyderVerse…?
As for Snyder, it looks like he’s developed a really good working relationship with Netflix. He’s currently hard at work on Rebel Moon, which will be his take on Star Wars. Snyder actually revealed that he pitched the idea of Rebel Moon to Lucasfilm before it was bought by Disney.
Apparently, they passed on the pitch. It sounds as though the main reason why they passed on Snyder’s idea was that it would have been a bit too ‘adult’ for their Star Wars universe. However, Netflix snapped it up.
That came after the filmmaker made Army Of The Dead for the streamer, and that movie ended up performing very well for them. They then greenlit and made a spinoff, called Army Of Thieves, which was pretty good.
They are also currently working on an animated spinoff series called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas. It was revealed not too long after Army Of The Dead was released that a sequel was already in the works.
The sequel is going to be called Planet Of The Dead. As of writing this article, the movie is going to be directed by Snyder, and I think he’s going to start working on it as soon as he’s finished with Rebel Moon.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is available to stream right now over on HBO Max.
