WB anti-Snyder

Zack Snyder is having quite the year. After walking away from Justice League due to a family tragedy, he took a few years off from making feature films and then unexpectedly returned to the center of the movie world earlier this year with Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, a four-hour, kitchen-sink version of his initial vision. On top of that, he also has a new heist film set during a zombie apocalypse coming out on Netflix this week called Army of the Dead, which means he’s back out in the world doing a fresh round of interviews.

In a recent conversation, the talk turned to the odds that Snyder would ever get to make those bonkers¬†Justice League sequels he envisioned. Warner Bros. has basically said that they’re never going to happen, and Snyder doesn’t seem thrilled about that, saying that the studio “has been aggressively anti-Snyder” and that he hopes “cooler heads would prevail” that will allow him to make those films one day.
