Justice League 2 may be on the way according to new reports. Warner Bros. and DC Comics agreed to release the Snyder Cut last week. Grace Randolph claims that Warner Bros. wants Zack Snyder to add elements into the Snyder Cut to set up Justice League 2 and Man of Steel 2. The company apparently planning on moving forwards with Justice League sequel if the Snyder Cut is a huge success when the project is released on HBO Max.

According to THR, the Snyder cut of the Justice League will either be a 4-hour movie or 6-episode series. The project will cost an estimated between $20M-30M. A Justice League sequel has a 50/50 chance of happening as the Snyder’s version of the Justice League is rumored to be better than the theatrical version released by Warner Bros in 2017.

The Batman vs Superman director announced during his Man of Steel watch party that his edit of the Justice League film will be released on HBO Max in 2021. Snyder stepped down to deal with the death of his daughter. The Avenger’s director Joss Whedon was hired to oversee the completion of post-production, including directing additional scenes written by himself.

Justice League bombed at the box office grossing around $657 million, with Warner Bros. reportedly losing $60 million. With an estimated production budget of $300 million, the Justice League is one of the most expensive films ever made. However, critics praised the action sequences and performances of the cast in the movie. Cavill, Affleck, Gadot, Fisher, Miller, and Momoa would return to help complete the Snyder Cut.
