Zack Snyder’s Justice League is Separate from the DCEU

No Comments

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is separate from the rest of the DCEU. This, according to Snyder, who was recently a guest on Beyond The Trailer. While it remains to be seen what that means, it does come with some major implications for DC Films moving forward. 

“Frankly, the DC cinematic universe has branched like a tree and blossomed and grown in amazing and great ways,” Snyder said. “But for me, where [Justice League] falls, I believe that it really sort of represents its own path. It’s kind of separate now from the DC cinematic universe continuity. And I think that’s a good thing.”


Joss Whedon famously stepped in to finish Justice League after Snyder departed the project. The version that arrived in theaters did not represent Snyder’s vision. With HBO Max releasing the Snyder Cut, that comes with implications. Darkseid is in this version, for example. But it seems, based on Snyder’s comments, that this new version won’t impact the state of the DCEU. 


Speaking further, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel filmmaker confirmed his version of the film is going to be quite a bit longer. 


“I have famously advertised the runtime at 214 minutes,” Snyder said. “now in its current state, it’s gonna end up being longer than that. Exciting to bring all this new material to the fans that get to see all this crazy and awesome new sequences. And I think that’s gonna be really exciting for everyone.”


It has been suggested that HBO Max might decide to split up Zack Snyder’s Justice League as a miniseries, as opposed to one really long movie. With a running time that could be approaching four hours, that would make sense. 


Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League


“In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.” 


HBO Max has not yet set a release date for the Snyder Cut of Justice League, but it will arrive sometime in 2021. 


So what do you think? Will the DCEU ignore the continuity of Justice League going forward? Do you think that’s the best way to go about it? Join in on the conversation over on Facebook or Twitter
