although Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been a success for HBO Max, with Snyder’s highly anticipated original version of the troubled DC team warmly received by fans and even critics, Warner Bros. and parent company WarnerMedia wasted little time turning down calls for more of its take on the DC Extended Universe.
Just days after the release of the four-hour superhero epic, WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff shot down hopes for the growing #RestoreTheSnyderVerse fan campaign by calling ZSJL “The completion of his trilogy,” and now Snyder has acknowledged that further episodes of Justice League seem highly unlikely.
Warner Bros. has been aggressively anti-Snyder if you will. What can I say? Obviously they’re not interested in my opinion, ”Snyder said Jake’s Takes during a promotional interview for his new film Army of the Dead. “But I would also say that they certainly weren’t interested in – I would have said it originally – in my view of Justice League. They certainly made decisions about that. “
“I love the characters, and I love the worlds, and I think it’s a great place to make a movie,” he continued. “It’s a glorious IP. So there is that. I don’t know what can be done if you go on, other than I think the fan movement is so strong, and the fan community, their intent is so pure, and I really have a tremendous amount of respect for it. I would hope that cooler heads would prevail and they would see that there is a huge fan out there that wants more of that. “

Meanwhile, talk to Uproxx, Admitted Snyder despite allowing him to finish his vision Justice League, he still had problems with the studio during reshoots and post-production last year:
It was cool putting on the Snyder Cut Justice League and that was fun and all. But Warner Bros. tortured me all the time for whatever reason, they can’t help it. I don’t know why I’m such a damn pain in their ass because I’m not trying to be, honestly … I don’t want to get in trouble either, but I’m not going to sit here and let them do like that and don’t. Look, they’re the ones who’ve been aggressive, not me. I did not do anything. Every day they turned around and did a strangely passive-aggressive thing. So I do not know. It’s weird. But look, like I said, I had a great time making it Justice League. I am very happy that I finished it. “
