While some SnyderVerse fans might take this quote as an endorsement of the continuation of Zack Snyder’s DC plans, it’s worth dissecting what exactly Scott Stuber said. Though it could be read that he would like to continue the SnyderVerse, it could also mean that he just wants Snyder’s DC movies available on Netflix.
Of course, the biggest challenge to achieving even that goal would be landing “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.” A Max exclusive, the “Justice League” re-cut was what Snyder fans had been fighting years for. Still, Warner Bros. may be unwilling to let it go to other streamers after they dropped a cool $70 million to finally see the project through to fruition.
All the same, for those who are hopeful that Netflix could continue the SnyderVerse, it is a possibility. After all, despite rebooting the DCU, Warner Bros. will allow projects like “The Batman: Part II” and “Joker: Folie a Deux” to continue, despite them being set in alternate worlds and timelines to James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU.
On the other hand, it seems unlikely that Warner Bros. would want another large-scale DC universe competing directly with its own DCU. Still, if there’s a chance for both to be successful at the same time, perhaps the studio would allow the DCEU to continue in some form, even as they try to move forward with their own plans.
