Is There A Future For The Snyderverse? Sportsbooks Say It’s Unlikely

  • The Zack Snyder cut of Justice League was released on HBO Max.
  • The movie was generally regarded as improved over the theatrical cut.
  • There are +300 odds that a Snyder-directed sequel to the movie is announced in 2021.

LAS VEGAS - HBO Max finally released the SnyderCut of the Justice League movie, and it has left open speculation as to whether or not there will be sequels.

Most of the movie was already filmed, but the studios spent significant amounts of money on reshoots.

In addition, there were details in the movie that implied potential sequels, although that could have simply been Snyder’s creative vision.

Let’s take a look at the odds on the online sportsbooks, and what we know about the future of the SnyderVerse.

Will DC Announce A Justice League Sequel Directed By Zack Snyder In 2021?

  • No -500
  • Yes +300

The most important factor in whether or not a Snydercut sequel is released is whether or not the studios, in this case Warner Brothers, are willing to pay for it.

The circumstances that allowed the Snydercut to be released (a global pandemic, the rise of streaming, the fact that most of the movie was already done, and a passionate fan base demanding this specific piece of content) are unlikely to be replicated in the future.

There is potentially an outside shot that the Snydercut does so well on HBO Max that there will be interest in a sequel, but that’s unknown at the moment.

For now, however, the studio seems to think the book is closed on the SnyderVerse - Warner Brothers executive Ann Sarnoff gave the following quote to Variety:

“I appreciate that they love Zack’s work and we are very thankful for his many contributions to DC. We’re just so happy that he could bring his cut of the “Justice League” to life because that wasn’t in the plan until about a year ago. With that comes the completion of his trilogy. We’re very happy we’ve done this, but we’re very excited about the plans we have for all the multi-dimensional DC characters that are being developed right now.”

The phrase “with that comes the completion of his trilogy” seems to heavily imply that Snyder is done with DC.

Entertainment betting enthusiasts now have to weigh that statement against the passion of the fanbase that got the SnyderCut released in the first place.

There are still movies planned with some of the actors from Justice League, such as Ezra Miller’s The Flash, but those will likely not involve Snyder.

It seems as though the passionate SnyderCut fanbase might have to be happy with what they got.

After all, the rallying cry was #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, and that has been accomplished.

Convincing a studio to abandon years of planning and bring back Snyder to direct movies that they’ve already canceled? Well, let’s just say that HBO Max would need to break a lot of revenue records for that to happen.
