Zack Snyder’s DC Extended Universe has largely been considered a failure by fans and critics alike. However, a former Warner Bros. executive has finally set the record straight about the box office performance of his DC films.

The DC Extended Universe has experienced nothing but flops in the past few years, from Black Adam to The Flash. This has led many to believe that, along with the critical controversy around the films, Zack Snyder’s DC films all bombed at the box office. However, former Warner Bros. executive Greg Silverman debunks this notion by saying all of this films made quite a bit of profit for the studio:

It’s unclear if Greg Silverman means every film under the DC Extended Universe banner were very profitable or if he’s only referring to Zack Snyder’s films like Man of Steel and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Regardless, it seems as though Snyder at least made it big at the box office, even if some fans and critics didn’t enjoy them.

The SnyderVerse era is over for now

The term “SnyderVerse” refers to the interconnected film universe that Zack Snyder created, which began with Man of Steel and continued with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Those plans have been scrapped in favor of an interconnected DC Universe consisting of film, television, animation, and video game projects, with James Gunn and Peter Safran at the helm.

Despite its mixed reception, the SnyderVerse has a dedicated fanbase that appreciates Zack Snyder’s DC Universe vision. Fans have praised the SnyderVerse films for their darker tone and mature storytelling. They have also criticized Warner Bros. and DC’s interference with Snyder’s DCU plans, which they believe resulted in the lackluster final product of Justice League.

In 2021, Zack Snyder released his four-hour long Justice League cut on the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max. His version of Justice League was well received by fans and critics alike, who praised its improvement over the original version of the movie, which was overseen by Joss Whedon. The release of the Snyder Cut has reignited interest in the SnyderVerse and sparked speculation about its future.
