Filmmaker Kevin Smith recently claimed the ending to Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut leaves room for future stories.
With only a few months to go until Justice League finally debuts on HBO Max, there’s been much speculation over the possibility of Zack Snyder continuing the story he originally wanted to explore before leaving the project. Snyder recently confirmed that he’d love to work with Jim Lee on telling part of that tale in a comic book which would include the Joker stealing a Motherbox, while DC fans have begun an online campaign to see more from the director, using #RestoreTheSnyderVerse on Twitter and Instagram. But on the most recent episode of the Fatman Beyond podcast, director Kevin Smith claimed that the film has a “weird” ending
During the podcast, Kevin Smith explained that he’s learned from “a friend” that Justice League doesn’t end like the storytelling cul-de-sac Warner Bros. executives previously claimed it was. According to Smith, the weird finale makes room for future installments in Zack Snyder’s timeline of movies. Whether that would be in comic book form, animation or live-action is obviously up to Warner Bros. and the overall success of the Snyder cut. Take a look at Kevin Smith talking about the film below.
“I happen to know that the ending that he’s got for the Snyder Cut is very not a cul-de-sac… it takes it to a weird neighborhood, but it’s not a cul-de-sac. You can keep f***ing going with the story based on what I’ve heard from a friend.”

Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
