The most-awaited Zack Synder’s Justice League release on HBO Max last week, and the film took the world by storm. Now half of the world’s people are engaged with Warner Brothers, whereas the other is angry with the ‘King of all Geeks’ Joss Whedon. 2017 was a complete shake-up year for Detective Comics Extended Universe as everything went to hell after that.
The retooling via Joss Whedon made the film quite disappointing as Snyder had to step down due to Snyder’s daughter’s untimely demise. Well, the controversy finally ended; everybody knows now that the plan of Warner Bros to manage the film was a dud that brought an end to the future of Justice League and its potential sequel.
A campaign led to the revival of Zack Synder’s Justice League
Zack Synder always had a massive plan for DEUC; yes, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a lousy film. The director and the team worked hard and made some significant changes to their skills to make the 4-hour Justice League a massive hit.

Synder has laid out plans for the Ben Affleck Batman movie, which was canceled alongside Justice League 2 and 3. The creative team and Synder always wanted to bring the War of Apokolips arc into a live-action film, but the future is uncertain regarding the future of DCEU.
What could have been the follow-up of Justice League?
By its looks, the follow-up of Justice League 2021 would set up two different timelines wherein one Lois Lane dies, and Superman goes crazy and turns into a murderous villain under the rule of Darkseid. There is also a possibility that the team will band together alongside Martian Manhunter and face Darkseid in Apokolips.

Despite the great reception that Justice League 2021 has procured for its storytelling, direction, and script, DCEU’s Justice League’s future is unknown.
The plot of Justice League 2
Synder had plans to ensure that Justice League 2 will comprise the Knightmare arc. The Earth finally opens to a battleground where Superman finally succumbs to the very essence of anti-life. According to Zack Synder, The Flash would have to travel back in time to change a subtle element that allows Earth to flourish even if Darkseid wages war on Earth.
All the world’s armies, Atlanteans, Themyscirans, Special Forces, and metahumans, come together to fight off Darkseid and his legion. The big finale would be a massive guitar solo and drum roll away from reaching the epic fight. Synder also expressed his interest in making five different Superman arcs to bring storytelling that is as great as that of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Is the Knightmare still happening?
The entire future of Synder’s version of DCEU depended on the reception of the 2021 Justice League. So far, the film had an excellent reception. Even if WB doesn’t push to the making and release of Justice League 2, HBO Max has showcased its interest in sharing the vision that Zack Synder has for the upcoming team-ups.
