Having shepherded the DCEU for nearly half a decade, on a path that WB is no longer interested in pursuing, mind you, earlier this week Zack Snyder announced that his next project would be an adaptation of the 1943 Ayn Rand novel, The Fountainhead, much to fan chagrin.
For those holding out hope that the Man of Steel director will keep fighting the good fight, namely urging the powers that be to release the Snyder cut of Justice League, I wouldn’t hold your breath. We may have just witnessed his blueprint for the shared cinematic universe come full circle – well, semi-circle – as Snyder has seemingly posted his DCEU swan song.
Late last night, the director took to his favorite social media platform, Vero, and unveiled the first photo he ever captured of the holy DC Trinity: Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill). The snapshot, which you can check out below, was taken on an iPhone during the production of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Snyder has been overly sentimental throughout the last twenty four hours, even for him. Before releasing the above still, he also presented the fandom with what could very well be a parting gift: a behind the scenes photo featuring Ezra Miller dressed as The Flash for a costume test. Then, several pieces of concept art from MoS, depicting Kal-El (Henry Cavill) in his suit, shredded beyond belief, flew online.
What does this all mean? Well, your guess is as good as mine. If I had to speculate, though, this profusion of nostalgia could indicate that Zack is inching towards putting a bow on his time spent as creative director of the DCEU, and won’t be titillating the fandom any longer with the notion of a Snyder cut…but I’ve been wrong before, so who knows?
