The actor-director had to retire the iconic cape and cowl in early 2019 after plans for his standalone Bat-flick didn't work out but his support for the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement has been consistent over the last 2 years. With this new development, could we see Batfleck back permanently in the DCEU?
Zack Snyder's Justice League will hit HBO Max in 2021 and according to the director himself, it will be entirely different from the theatrical cut which allegedly only consisted 1/4 of his footage. The film is also rumored to be at least 4 hours long with Black-suited Superman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Darkseid all confirmed to appear.
