Zack Snyder Is A Fan Of DC’s TV Properties; Comments On Why They’re Keeping Them Separate

There’s been a lot of talk over the last few years regarding DC’s TV properties and their film slate and the decision by the company to keep them separate. While speaking with Blog Talk Radio, Zack Snyder has now commented on the subject when asked if the upcoming big screen version of The Flash would be influenced by the current version on The CW. Snyder had the following to say regarding that matter.

This is the bottom line for me. I have 100% respect and love for what they’re doing on TV. I think it’s amazing. The joy and the fun of them speaks to the iconic, graphic nature of these characters. These characters are bigger than any of the actors playing them. Long after I’m done making a Batman v Superman movie, there will be someone else who makes it. It’s almost like an American tradition now we’ve established that these characters will be played again and again, and they exist outside of us in this moment.

I think that’s sort of the thing I’ve embraced, and as opposed to trying to shoehorn all of these storylines into a single universe, we let the characters exist in multi-universe, and therefore it’s a lot more fun and a lot more value for the audience. They get to see their favourite and most beloved characters on different adventures at the same time in different universes and it really makes the meal a lot richer and a lot more fun. We get to go with these guys in all different directions and that’s really the joy of what we’re trying to do over here at DC.

There’s both good and bad here. With these characters existing in a multiverse, it definitely opens up the door to possibly crossing them over at some point and having Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen meet Ezra Miller’s version. However, it’s been seen that the film versions have had an effect on the small screen properties as was seen when The CW killed off Deadshot right around the time production on Suicide Squad kicked off among other things.

While they call this a multiverse, it seems rather limited in that regard. We know that Superman and Batman exist in DC’s TV universe, is there a chance will we ever actually see them? We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for these shows. Let us know what you think about all of this in the comments section below.
