Although the lore regarding a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has become much more tangible throughout the last month, or so, we might’ve just been witnessing the founding father coming to terms with his departure from the DCEU, whether he was relieved of his duties or withdrew voluntarily.
Despite recently liking a post on Vero pertaining to a screening of the fabled Snyder cut of the film, the action proved to be nothing more than a distraction tactic, leaving his keyboard warriors unprepared for what would follow mere days later.
Having shepherded the shared cinematic universe for half a decade in a direction that the studio is no longer pursuing, Zack Snyder officially announced earlier this week that his next project would be an adaptation of the 1943 Ayn Rand novel, The Fountainhead, much to fan chagrin.
De facto, Snyder has seemingly conceded that he’ll never see his DCEU blueprint come to fruition, but as to whether or not he’ll keep up the good fight regarding a director’s cut of Justice League remains to be seen.
In the meantime, though, while we wait for the resolution to this battle, Snyder has, once again, taken to his favorite social media platform to unveil a behind the scenes photo of Ezra Miller’s costume test as The Flash, which you can check out below.

Circling back to The Fountainhead, and given the subject matter – an individualistic young architect refusing to compromise his artistic vision – it does make sense that Zack would choose to tackle this project next, as Snyder may see similarities between himself and Howard Roark, the main protagonist, who just happens to be an uncompromising artist.
Regardless, he’s undoubtedly picked an ambitious film to follow-up his DCEU departure with, and we can’t wait to see how it develops from here.
