Zack Snyders Justice League - Trailer 1 - Featured - 01

Zack Snyder’s Justice League has finally arrived, and now all eyes turn towards what is to come for Zack Snyder and DC films in general.

Coming off the opening week of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, WarnerMedia Studios CEO Ann Sarnoff sat down with Variety to discuss the future of Zack Snyder with DC films, whether or not we would ever see the Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad, and the overall future of DC Films.

First and foremost, Sarnoff made it pretty clear that Zack Snyder’s Justice League is the end of his involvement with the films, saying, “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.”

With the fan campaign successfully bringing Zack Snyder’s Justice League to life, this leaves questions about the David Ayer cut of Suicide Squad to which Sarnoff simply replied, “We won’t be developing David Ayer’s cut.”

David Ayer later replied in a tweet simply asking, “Why?”

Moving forward, Sarnoff talked that the multiverse will become a larger part of their plans. “We’ve got an incredible group of creators — television series creators, Max series creators, feature film creators — who are basically broadening the base of the talent that we work with on DC because we’re so excited about the potential to build out the DC multiverse.”

The interview is full of information about the future of DC Films, and is well worth a full read.
