Ben Affleck’s Batman Vs Jared Leto’s Joker HBO Max series can be the dark, gory tale that fans and the characters truly deserve.
With a pretty fascinating upcoming movie slate, DC seems to be firing up their throttles and fans couldn’t be more excited. Much of the hype and buzz at the moment is due to the announcement that the three-year-long wait for the Snyder Cut is finally over. A release date for Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set for September 2021. With over $70million additional funding going into reshoots for Snyder’s version, it goes without saying how important it is that the Snyder cut delivers on expectations.
Snyder Cut Setting The Stage For A Larger Universe
Since production resumed after the global pandemic, more information about the movie has continued to emerge. Particularly interesting is the news about Jared Leto’s reprisal as The Joker in the upcoming Justice League miniseries. Leto played The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad and even though he didn’t make an appearance in Justice League: Dawn of Justice, he has somehow made it to the Snyder Cut. Snyder recently revealed that the Joker would be sporting a new look, although it’s not clear if the Joker’s appearance would be anything more than a cameo.

But rumours are doing the rounds about a larger Snyder-verse being developed at the WB. And seems like after his swift exit from DCEU and easy comeback for Snyder’s shoots – Affleck has more offers laid out on the table than one. Interestingly, a Batman HBO Max series is also on charts with none other than Jared Leto’s Joker’s involvement.

Batfleck is a huge part of the Snyder Cut and fans are hoping that this time the caped crusader will actually be able to make an impact in the movie.

However, Affleck’s portrayal of Gotham’s vigilante has surprisingly thrilled majority of DC fans who took to twitter to express happiness that plans were in order for the Batfleck to make one more appearance in The Flash movie.

It can be a perfect extension for Zack Snyder’s Elseworlds tale in the DC Universe.
