Zack Snyder is writing the Justice League 2 with Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck has reportedly signed on to don the cape again.
For long fans have been waiting for Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut. Fans campaigned, fought and won the war against WB and finally got their way to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. While AT & T merger with WB has been a sigh of relief for fans it has also got creative juices flowing at the studio of course but at the cost major restructuring. But now reports are surfacing about Zack Snyder’s Justice League sequel being already in works.
JL Sequel Already In Works
As reported by Small Screen, “according to our sources, Snyder and HBO Max are already planning a sequel to this upcoming four-part series.” They quoted multiple sources confirming,
Justice League 2 is in the works at HBO Max. Zack Snyder is already working on a script with Chris Terrio.
It’s quite a fact that Snyder Cut will undoubtedly gather HBO Max subscriptions that Warner Bros are aiming for. Both casual on lookers and Snyder loyalists are hyped about possibly the biggest project on the streaming service. It also makes sense given WB has further invested in additional photography and VFX for the series.
Watch: What To Expect From Justice League Snyder Cut
While the purpose of the additional photography is much speculated by fans and experts it seems like Snyder has a different ending in mind. Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Amber Heard, Joe Manganiello and most recently Jared Leto all have returned to the sets to finish the additional photography at this time. Some reports suggest the ending of the Snyder Cut would be a cliffhanger. The official Zack Snyder Justice League trailer further confirmed it. That makes sense, given the flexibility of seasonal streaming on the HBO Max platform Snyder can tell a longer and much detailed JL story as he originally planned. Addition of Jared Leto as Joker in the cast along with Amber Heard as Atlantean queen Mera further affirms the fact.
Ben Affleck Signed On For Zack Snyder’s Justice League 2
While reports have confirmed Ben Affleck will indeed reprise his version of Batman for The Flash 2022, there have been rumours of his signing another film with WB. Small Screen’s further reports about Ben Affleck’s confirmed addition to the cast. The report says,
Ben Affleck and WarnerMedia have agreed on a deal that will see him star as the Dark Knight in Justice League 2.
Industry insider Mikey Sutton, further exclaimed at Ben Affleck’s addition to JL 2. In his report, he said, “I was under the impression that his rumoured Batman movie for HBO Max would be his last goodbye but perhaps he’s found new inspiration with the creative freedom at the channel.”
Along with Affleck other Justice League members Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher, and Jason Momoa all are in talks with Warner Bros for the franchise. Looks like WB is treating Zack Snyder’s Justice League as a TV superhero event much like Marvel Cinematic Universe’s heroes on Disney+. This provides Snyder with creative freedom while creating a consumer base for the streaming platform.
