Zack Snyder might not return to direct more DC movies in the future, Variety reported. The filmmaker has partially worked with “Justice League” but passed on the directorial job to joss whedon.

Time Warner, the entertainment conglomerate and one of the largest cable companies in the United States, is also “frustrated that Warner Bros” executives keep on bringing Snyder back despite scathing reviews written for “Batman v Superman.” Furthermore, the company also noted that “there are no immediate plans” for the filmmaker to return for another movie.

From Snyder to Whedon

Zack Snyder has directed quite a number of superhero films in his career. Among these movies include “Watchmen,” “Man Of Steel,” “Wonder Woman,” “Suicide Squad.” He also directed movies such as “Dawn Of The Dead,” “300,” “Sucker Punch,” and “Snow Steam Iron.”

However, when he worked with “Justice League,” he left in the middle of the production and tapped onto Joss Whedon. As a result, the final film is a mixture of his ideas and Whedon's. Some of the fans also noted that there were scenes shot with Snyder that were not included in the final version.

Moreover, “Justice League” also failed to perform according to expectations at the box-office worldwide. While it remained within the top five spots, it struggled when it comes to the ticket sales.

“Wonder Woman” was his only DC film that managed to meet the expectations of both fans and film critics.

“Justice League” comes as the direct sequel to “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” following Man of Steel’s death. It also introduced origin stories of Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman. The movie featured actors Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller.

It also showcased a villain that was made using CGI effects, a first in the current DC line.

Future projects

Nonetheless, the filmmaker is still going to produce two more movies under the DC Comics banner. These include the stand-alone production for “Aquaman” and “Wonder Woman 2,” Screen Rant reported. This means that he might also not return to direct the sequel film for “Justice League.”

Post-production stage has started for the upcoming stand-alone film about the underwater superhero.

It is directed by James Wan and written by Geoff Johns and Will Beall.

Headed by Jason Momoa, it is set to feature a stellar cast that includes Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, and Patrick Wilson as Orm.
