Well if you were one of those people hoping that Warner Bros. and D.C. had finally gotten their shit together to make a coherent D.C. movie universe, think again. I think everyone had hope for a unified D.C. movie universe ala what Marvel is doing with their creations at the moment after Warner Bros. essentially re-committed to a “Justice League” movie recently. That, alas, maybe not be the case at all.
At least, according to Zack Snyder, who tells HeyUGuys while at the UK red carpet premiere of “Sucker Punch” the following, bewildering facts as he knows it:
Like what Chris Nolan is doing and what I’m doing with Superman, what they’ll do with Justice League will be it’s own thing with it’s own Batman and own Superman. We’ll be over here with our movie and they’ll kinda get to do it twice which is kinda cool.
“Cool”? Not so much, Zack. Cool is if Superman and Batman existed in the same universe where Green Lantern and The Flash can stop by for a cameo. Now THAT is cool.
I know what you’re thinking — maybe the site just misquoted Snyder. Not so much. Here’s the video cued up to the spot where Snyder says the above. If nothing else, this certainly lines up with Warner Bros. already making plans to “re-invent” Batman for a second time.
