In an interview with The Nerd Queens, director and director Zack Snyder revealed to fans that he would still love to direct live-action of ‘The Dark Knight,’ a four-edition comedy miniseries signed by the legendary Frank Miller.
“I saw a tweet recently that said, ‘Snyder needs to stop reading’ The Dark Knight ‘, he needs to read more Batman comics. And I almost tweeted: “there aren’t any more!”. I am obsessed with these comics. I always imagined that one day I would make a version of it. It is a dream that I have ”.
The tale revolves around a Batman who has been retired for many years, called to action after a massive crisis in Gotham City. Gray and brutal, Batman faces a gigantic variety of threats, including a street gang called The Mutants and a Joker who has escaped from Arkham Sanatorium.
It’s worth remembering that Snyder returns next year with the release of his “ Justice League ” cut, which will air on HBO Max.
There is still no confirmation as to whether Warner Bros. will continue to invest in other projects of the filmmaker besides the version in question, but, if it depends on him, it seems that there is still a long way to go.
In another interview with The Nerd Queens, the filmmaker was asked if he has more ambitious plans for Darkseid at the DCEU.
In response, he said he spoke to actor Ray Porter, the villain’s interpreter, and thought of some possibilities.
“That’s a good question, I was asked, ‘What happens when Darkseid comes to Earth? And after that? You know, that’s a big question. And I say, “Listen, the truth is I wrote and designed a full arc. I already know what happens when Darkseid… well… ”he made a mystery. “I find it exciting when they speculate on this.”
“Ray Porter and I were already talking about this and found answers to some interesting questions.”
Recently, Porter spoke to The Geek House Show and said he would like to reprise the role, stating that the villain can play a big role in the future of DC’s shared universe.
“I would love to reprise my role as Darkseid, I believe he is a key character for the future [do DCEU]. If they make new movies … I hope they include me. I would love to see a sequel to Zack’s story. So yes, I really hope so. It would be good. I haven’t heard anything about sequence planning. But you know … Hope doesn’t hurt anyone.
Recalling that Paul Dergarabedian, box office analyst at Comscore, told The Observer that he was convinced Warner Bros. had new plans for Zack Snyder.
“Everyone thinks of these big studios as for-profit entities, but when we see something like that, [o Snyder Cut], there’s no denying that something else is happening behind the scenes. It’s not an opinion, it’s an analysis built on the history of the film industry … They want to keep Zack Snyder working, just like Warner’s film division wants to do business with Christopher Nolan. It’s a long-term strategy, not just a way to use it for unsuccessful adaptation times.
Dergarabedian also pointed out that investing in project completion and marketing is not only a confidence button in Snyder’s work, but also a way to get audiences to subscribe to HBO Max.
“Maybe they have this plan to make HBO Max more attractive to audiences, regardless of their financial performance. Maybe they [os representantes da Warner Bros] think long term, with patience and loyalty so that Snyder can create something big.
It only remains to wait and see if the success of Snyder Cut will convince Warner Bros. to invest in a sequel, which would give the opportunity to explore the details of the questions that remain open at DCEU.
What do you think of this possibility?
Recalling that the new version of ‘Justice League’ will be an event divided into four parts and lasting four hours (which means that each “chapter” will have one hour of exposure).
As Snyder has promised, the new release will bring several new character arcs, including the full Cyborg story and the introduction of Iris West (Kiersey Clemons) to the DCEU.
Until then, it’s worth remembering that the Snyder Cut is set to debut in 2021, on HBO Max.
