With WB setting their sights on releasing Justice League in the near future, it would be plausible to assume that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is a part of the superhero ensemble. The director has gone from denying that his Superman is a part of the Justice League to responding with diverting answers.
But in a recent interview, Snyder has said something very interesting that may lead us to believe that we will be seeing something that will lead up to Justice League in Man of Steel.
This is what Snyder told the NY Post (via The Playlist) when asked about Justice League:
“I don’t know how ‘Justice League’ is going to be handled. Honestly, I don’t. But ‘The Man of Steel’ exists, and Superman is in it. I don’t know how you’d move forward without acknowledging that.”
Seems subtle. Snyder isn’t confirming nor denying that his Superman is in Justice League. He does acknowledge that WB is working on a way to get there. Whether or not his version of Superman is in it remains to be seen.
He did answer a follow-up question with a more intriguing response:
“I can’t really say anything to that, because that’s a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.”
So what exactly is Snyder referring to when he says “to keep them on course?” We could speculate many things, but it wouldn’t make much sense to release Snyder’s iteration of Superman and release an iteration specifically for Justice League. But let’s leave that option on the table should Man of Steel flop. If it doesn’t then don’t be surprised to see some sort of Justice League acknowledgement in the film.
