Justice League Sequel Rumored For Theatrical Release

x

After three and a half years of campaigning and waiting, fans have now seen Zack Snyder’s Justice League in all of its glory. However, anyone hoping that it might finally draw a line under the constant demands to see the director continue to churn out DCEU blockbusters is going to be left sorely disappointed.

If anything, though, now that the Snyder Cut is available for all to watch, the speculation is only going to intensify. After all, the epilogue alone sets up at least three different movies. Lex Luthor and Deathstroke’s exchange leaves the door open for Joe Manganiello and Ben Affleck to finally get around to that standalone Batman effort, the Knightmare sequence tees up an alt-reality spinoff where the dystopian League try and stop Henry Cavill’s rogue Superman, and Martian Manhunter’s brief appearance ties into a direct Justice League sequel.

As things stand, none of these projects exist anywhere except the minds of the fanbase, but Snyder knew exactly what he was doing when he ended his four-hour epic on multiple cliffhangers that would excite people as much as it would enrage them over the fact that the studio apparently has no interest in making them a reality. Or maybe they do.

Tipster Mikey Sutton is now claiming that a Justice League sequel is under consideration and might be a theatrical exclusive, although we’ve heard conflicting reports recently that it could be a streaming-only venture. In any case, it goes without saying that we’re in store for an onslaught of rumors surrounding the reinstatement of both the SnyderVerse and its creator, and once the Warner Bros. boardroom has a chance to crunch the numbers and examine the overwhelming popularity of Justice League 2.0, there’s every possibility that they might have some interest in reuniting the team again – whether it’s for the big or small screen.
