Life truly has its ups and downs; the DCEU has definitively fall victim to this fate numerous times, but new infromation about Zack Snyder's cancelled Justice League sequel, along with the original future of the DCEU as a whole is even more saddening.

While Snyder's vision was originally for the Justice League film to be split into two-parts, with Superman victimized by the anti-life equation, and the apocalyptic demise of earth, the domino's didn't entirely fall orchestrally as he had hoped.

DC storyboard artist Jay Oliva, who had spoke out recently on his time working on the now cancelled Ben Affleck Batman-solo film, has now spoke out revealing an alternate planned Flashpoint film, which would have served as a secondary Justice League sequel, along with revaling the true big bad of the DCEU all along.

"Rick’s movie was laying the groundwork for Zoom as the big baddy of the DC Universe.” - Jay Oliva, Inverse

According to Oliva, The Flash films would have been integral in the progressive storytelling of the DCEU, where the Reverse Flash would have "come from the future to basically f*ck with Barry [Allen]," along with the discovery that he was the one "pulling the strings," toying with the Justice League the entire time.

“It was Professor Zoom pulling the strings because he had come from the future to basically f*ck with Barry. In the Flash movies, Zoom would be the villain in the background. But also in the ancillary other films, you would see some of the influences of Zoom on the rest of the Justice League.” - Jay Oliva, Inverse

In the end, when all hope in the DCEU seems so lost and dearth, that is exactly when you pull the lever, and reboot the DC universe; the actors have done their job, and it is time to put their character's to rest.

“At the ending of Zack’s Darkseid quadrilogy, or whatever, we would end up with a 'Justice League Unlimited' version of the Snyder-Verse. And then you flip it. You do 'Flashpoint Paradox.' Everybody who’s friends are now enemies, and it’s a world that you don’t want to live in. You can reboot the universe and introduce a new cast that way. Because after 10 years, the actors need to go onto something else.” - Jay Oliva, Inverse

Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the theatrical cut of Justice League, Snyder's leaving from Warner Bros., and James Gunn's reboot of the shared universe, it is truly sad for fans to never see a consistent DC universe thrive, and conclude on their terms.

 “All of the missed opportunities. Being a part of it was so exciting, and then having to shift gears and pivot. It’s kind of sad. I would’ve loved to have seen it get to this point.” - Jay Oliva, Inverse

Sounds like ass
RockReigns - 8/4/2023, 7:47 PM
That's the problem with Zack's films. He would plan out the future, but never focus on the NOW. Killing off Superman in his second outing to make JL3's story is BS.

@RockReigns - jeez, you're soon point. That's it.
DrReedRichards - 8/5/2023, 4:27 AM
@RockReigns -

A Snyder fan actually criticizing Snyder? Shit, maybe there's still hope for you guys after all.

Filmmaking these days: Plan ahead, never worry about now.

The true big bad was Zack Snyder.

All these WB idiots and the remaining walking dead snyderheads are somehow trying to sell some kind of positive spin regarding the stinking dead corpse that was the DCFU.

It's just sad at this point.

Sounds more interesting than whatever tf gunn is doing 🤣
Usernametaken - 8/4/2023, 8:00 PM
@TheClunges - get help
JoJo1982 - 8/4/2023, 8:35 PM
@TheClunges - lmao but yet you don’t have any clue on what he’s planning.

That’s what makes your comment even funnier

@Usernametaken - i tried but yo momma wasn't available 😒👀
DeadClunge - 8/5/2023, 4:06 AM
@JoJo1982 - that my point, he should be rebooting everything. Instead we're getting a bunch of half arsed sounding plans.
ObserverIO - 8/5/2023, 4:43 AM
@TheClunges - It's pretty much the same.
Gunn's work is always more entertaining though, so there's an very slim chance that it will actually work. At least with a slightly larger niche audience than the Snyder Cult. I think I'd happily join a Gunn Cult.
DeadClunge - 8/5/2023, 5:58 AM
@ObserverIO - I could never be part of a Gunn cult 🤣 those sus jokes and bad costumes ain't my street.

However I'd rather him have rebooted everything instead of what's been announced so far. Legacy and B&TB feel like esleworld films ATM.
ObserverIO - 8/5/2023, 9:30 AM
@TheClunges - I agree. It's gonna be a real shit show when it hits.

"Rick’s movie" Who's Rick? Zack?

The rest sounds stupid, starting with the name Professor Zoom.
thedrudo - 8/4/2023, 8:10 PM
@Usernametaken - Rick Famuyiwa who at one point was directing and I think writing The Flash.
thedrudo - 8/4/2023, 8:08 PM
Wtf is “Jay Olivia, Inverse”?
lemric - 8/4/2023, 8:39 PM
@thedrudo - inverse is the website that did the interview these quotes are being pulled from
Godzilla2000Zer - 8/4/2023, 8:09 PM
Eobard over Darkseid gotta admit I didn't see that coming
FireandBlood - 8/4/2023, 8:17 PM
@Godzilla2000Zer - Eobard was their Kang after their Darkseid “saga”. They were following Marvel beat for beat
JoJo1982 - 8/4/2023, 8:36 PM
@PlusUltra - more like marvel was following their beat
