Zack Snyder's Justice League Ranked Below Other DC Films On Critics' List

Netflix is the only option left for the SnyderVerse to potentially continue after The Flash crashed into a wall. Despite a Fresh rating from critics and an 84% approval from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, The Flash will lose about $200 million.

Without a doubt, Warner Bros. Discovery will not restore the SnyderVerse.

Although DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn already killed such goals when he announced his reboot, some hardcore fans still held hope. But Henry Cavill no longer being Superman should’ve been the final nail in the coffin. After all, Cavill was the heart of the SnyderVerse. Without him, there is no SnyderVerse.

The box-office failure of Black Adam hoisted the red flags. Despite Cavill’s well-hyped cameo as Superman, a number of fans boycotted it. They complained about John Williams’ iconic Superman: The Movie score being used instead of Hans Zimmer’s music for Snyder’s Man of Steel. Many complained that Cavill wore Superman’s trademark blue outfit instead of Snyder black from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

A few even gave Justice League director Joss Whedon credit for such a vision. Ridiculous.

It’s impossible to gauge how much of this sunk Black Adam; certainly, it had to have hurt it on opening weekend.

Although Snyder had nothing to do with either Black Adam or The Flash, they existed within the DC world he shaped. To Hollywood executives, they see all these films as the DCEU. And The Flash‘s failure told them, once again, there’s no money in it. Certainly not enough for WBD with their financial issues.

Prior to Gunn’s hiring, Warner Bros. Pictures Group co-chair Mike De Luca planned to keep aspects of the SnyderVerse alive before an eventual makeover. For example, Cavill’s Man of Steel 2 and even a Justice League sequel with the SnyderVerse actors.

A last ride.

All gone.

David Corenswet is the new Superman. A new Batman will be introduced.

Still, WBD’s line of Elseworlds DC projects like the Joker and Matt Reeves’ The Batman franchises made some think the SnyderVerse could find a hole in there somewhere. After The Flash disaster, WBD will never dip into the DCEU again. Even Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom director James Wan is assuring people his picture isn’t in the DCEU. Like it has the cooties or something.

But YouTube personality Skiiwalker Tha Jedi saw an alternative to WBD: Netflix. Skiiwalker’s #SellZSJLToNetflix campaign exploded over Twitter; in fact, it became so popular that even Forbes magazine gave the idea their seal of approval.

When Skiiwalker met Snyder in person at the Full Circle charity event, he asked the filmmaker how he felt if WBD did #SellZSJLToNetflix. Snyder answered:

And so, yes, would I be interested in whatever medium or whatever way these ideas would be made, of course I would! Yeah, and in the meantime we forge ahead and we do what we do.

He even wrote “#SnyderVerse sell it!” on his poster.

According to Game Rant, there could be movement on selling ZSJL to Netflix. Per Game Rant:

Now it appears that Netflix is interested in the HBO library, with rumors that may even include the Snyderverse.

Previously, Deadline reported that “Warner Bros. Discovery is in talks with Netflix to lease a packaged deal for HBO original content under a non-exclusive license agreement, which the initiative has been campaigning for since its inception.”

As of present time, Game Rant stresses that the SnyderVerse aspect remains a rumor. Nonetheless, rumors can flame out or catch fire. People can either be optimistic this could lead into one of the biggest revivals ever or not at all. Certainly, Netflix has an outstanding and supportive relationship with Snyder with his original IPs such as Army of the Dead and Rebel Moon.

At least the possibility exists somewhere.
