Zack Snyder reached out to James Gunn to show his support for the future of the DC Universe.

With Rebel Moon now in post-production, Zack Snyder took some time off his busy schedule to reach out to James Gunn and offer his thoughts on the new DC Studios slate. According to Gunn, who made the revelation on his personal Twitter page, Snyder expressed his support for the slate, a move that has sparked excitement among fans of the DC Universe.

James Gunn and Peter Safran recently told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room and a unified storyline. The two explained that the DCU could bring back elements from previous Warner Bros. regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.

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.
