There’s been a lot of exciting DC news the past few weeks. Warner Brothers officially announced the arrival of Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League on HBO Max, and the studio is allowing the director to complete his vision for the movie before releasing it to the public.
Now, as fans continue to celebrate the Snyder Cut, word on the street says that the Snyder Cut may lead to two new films for the DC Extended Universe – Man of Steel 2 and Justice League 2.
According to a report by pop culture insider and reviewer Grace Randolph, Warner Brothers has requested Zack Snyder to plant seeds for Man of Steel 2 and Justice League 2 into the Snyder Cut of Justice League.
"Warner Bros. has asked Zack Snyder to put in the groundwork for both projects, Man of Steel 2 and Justice League 2, into the Snyder Cut," said Randolph. "So that if it is a hit, they will have a place to move forward, a clear route."
This may seem confusing since previous reports about Henry Cavill’s return as the DCEU’s Superman say that Warner Brothers has no intention of developing a sequel to Man of Steel 2. Instead, Cavill will be making cameo appearances in other DC movies like Aquaman 2 and Shazam 2.
Despite the conflicting nature of these reports, Randolph insists that Warner Brothers is using the cameo appearances in Shazam 2 and Aquaman 2 to help build towards the sequels for Man of Steel and Justice League.
It doesn’t seem entirely impossible, however, fans will have to wait for DC to make confirmation before they take the report word for word.
The Snyder Cut of Justice League is set to premiere sometime in 2021.
