JUSTICE LEAGUE Artist Suggests Zack Snyder's Original Five-Movie Arc Would Have Been Something Special
We recently found out that Man of Steel was originally envisioned as the first part of a five-movie arc for director Zack Snyder, & storyboard artist Jay Oliva reckons it would have been "unforgettable."
Starting with Man of Steel and continuing with Batman v Superman, Justice League, a direct JL sequel and then a mysterious final installment to wrap everything up; Snyder's plans were halted when he was replaced by Joss Whedon as Justice League's director, and it doesn't seem likely that he'll be returning to WB's DC Films Universe anytime soon.
Of course, there are many that think this is for the best, but the Snyder faithful would have been in for a treat if he had managed to complete his overarching story - at least according to artist Jay Oliva.
I cannot go into any specifics but it was epic, grand, emotional, joyful and unforgettable....— Jay Oliva (@jayoliva1) May 17, 2018
Oliva worked with Snyder on all three of the DC movies he did helm, and parted ways with the studio around the same time. You may assume his opinion is somewhat biased, but there's no arguing with the fact that a lot of DC fans would have been very curious to see where Snyder would have taken the franchise.
Tell us, what do you think of Oliva's Tweet? Would you have liked to see Snyder stay on, are are you glad the DCEU is heading in a new direction? Sound off below.
