DC fans are waiting in anticipation to watch "The Snyder Cut" of 2017's Justice League on HBO Max. However, the director has no plans of returning to the DC cinematic universe.
In an interview with "Comic Book Debate," the director has stated that he currently has no plans to make any more superhero movies featuring DC's iconic characters, reports Collider.
Zac Synder said in his interview, "Look, I never thought I'd be here doing this. I didn't think I'd be finishing Justice League… The truth is, and it's been widely reported, and I have no issue, this is an old movie. This is a years-old movie I'm working on. The DC universe has gone and branched off and done its own thing and that's fine… As far as what I did and as far as what my vision for what I wanted to do with these characters and the journey I wanted them to go on, it's well known that I planned on more movies — five movies or something — but I'm busy. "
"I've got a lot going on. Is it cool that the fans have so much faith in the trajectory? Yes, it's amazing, and I couldn't be happier and I'm excited for them to see Justice League so they can really drink the entire elixir of Justice League. But would I continue? I have no plan to. But like I said, I didn't think I'd be here, so who knows?," the director added.
Zac Synder currently has his hands full with his zombie action film Army of the Dead scheduled to hit Netflix sometime this year and a prequel film currently in the works.
He has also continued to serve as executive producer on the DC universe films, including Wonder Woman 1984 and James Gunn's upcoming The Suicide Squad.
