The release of Zack Snyder's Justice League last year was considered a triumph amongst the fandom as it gave them the chance to finally see director Zack Snyder's fully-realized vision of the 2017 superhero team-up film. It also prompted some fans to start petitions for the studio to continue the "Snyder-verse" in the DCEU.

However, in a recent report from Variety regarding the future of the DCEU franchise, they revealed that Warner Bros. insiders are privately lamenting that Zack Snyder's Justice League should have never happened as the release of the film led to more demands from the fanbase to continue the "Snyder-verse" and go against the leaders in the studio.

For the past several weeks, there have been rumors and speculations that the new management of Warner Bros. Discovery under CEO David Zaslav is planning to "restore the Snyder-verse" although it looks like this new report puts down any hopes or possibility that it will ever happen.

There is also the fact that Snyder himself has moved on from Warner Bros. and is now busy working on projects for Netflix, where his production company has an overall deal including the upcoming film Rebel Moon which is currently in production.

Despite the success of Zack Snyder's Justice League when it was released on HBO Max last year, Warner Bros. never laid out any plans on continuing the "Snyder-verse" in the DCEU and the new cut of the film was supposed to be a one-off in response to the online campaign.

Earlier this month, Zaslav also revealed in the company's investors' meeting that they are implementing a new ten-year plan to reshape the future of the DC franchise similar to Marvel. They are also reportedly in talks with producer Dan Lin to become the new head of DC Films, replacing the soon-to-leave Walter Hamada.
