Film Theory: Dear DC, I Fixed Your Universe! (Justice League Snyder Cut)
Never miss a Film Theory! ►

So now that we've all finally got to see the infamous Snyder Cut of DC's The Justice League, we're good right? Wrong! Now the people want to make it CANON! Well Theorists, what if I told you it already was? What if the original vision of Zack Snyder's Justice League has ALWAYS been canon? That's right! Before you send off that tweet, watch this video! It may have you saying instead.

    I wonder if lex luther has something to do with this 👌

  • Sushike

    are we so sure that Zack Snyder does not watch the theaterical cut of JL.. cuz what Matpat just said make sense since we know about Flash having time travel power, it it possible that both movie are cannon and the 2021 version just the good ending.. DC just getting more interesting from time to time.

    But the justice league only get those visions of the future when they Revive Superman in the Snyder cut so that means that the Knightmare is still inevitable

    Man honestly speaking it appears Zack Snyder just league is justice league2 ( Because it appears to be a second attempt of steppenwolf before and after Aquaman)

    I wish there would another universe for the cw heroes like flash superman supergirl and stargirl to teamup with the dceu justice to take down 2 darkseids at one point that would be cool

  • J C

    I'm confused

  • FarmerProductions

    Major issues with this theory, if both are continuations then flash couldn’t change the joss version since that had a different backstory in steppenwolf leading the original failed invasion plus the different looks

  • Aaron Binkley
    Aaron Binkley

    I love this. Also, I don't think The Flash gets enough credit for being literally the most powerful DC hero. Oh, you think Superman is more powerful? The Motherbox destroyed the world, it destroyed Superman, turned him to dust, and The Flash no sold it like Road Warrior Hawk against a local jobber.

    Hey MatPad How about Aquaman is a Sequel for Zack snyder Justice League and Aquaman is preparing himself and his Army to the arrives from Darkseid

    Why is BvS not on BOTH timelines? The film is still necessary to create both JL films, right?

      Justice League 2017 match with BvS cinema's version Zack Snyder's Justice League match with BvS Ultimate Edition

  • Ky-El

    1. In Josstice League in the flashback it is Steppenwolf while in Zack Snyder's Justice League it is Darkseid 2. Steppenwolf in Josstice League looks like a completely different person than Zack Snyder's Justice League

  • Dylan Trujillo

    Cw 33 Flash would this

  • Nicholas Salkowski
    Nicholas Salkowski

    All of this works except… Your premise that started all this is that Batman didn’t acknowledge that “Lois is the key” in Josstice League; but he did. Lois was his “big gun” after bringing Superman back. That was Whedon’s way of referencing Flash’s visit in BvS. Batman used Lois to stop Superman from rampaging and killing them all. I love this theory, but I think if you look at it from that perspective it shoots it down.

    wait....even in the first time line josstice league, they are trying to bring back superman who is dead in BVS...which according to you is happening in second timeline..

  • Amazingpig256

    Ok I think I might have a good timeline for all the people who mentioned shazam, suicide squad(1 and 2), and the arrowverse. Also any other movies. Josstice League Time Line- WW1, MoS, maybe an alternate BvS where flash doesn't show up from the past,(half way through; flash cameos in arrowverse) Suicide Squad 1, Justice League, Aquaman, Shazam After these events darkside appears, all of the knightmare events happen, superman kills justice league, then flashpoint happens Snyder Cut timeline- WW1, WW84, MoS, BvS, suicide squad, Snyder Cut, Birds of Prey, Shazam, Suicide Squad 2

    • Amazingpig256

      Reason I put the cameo in the Josstice League timeline is because of this. Since Ezra Miller's Flash finds out that there are other versions of himself; he wants to find out more of what he can do with his powers. This explains how they would make the cosmic treadmill: because barry, due too his research on his powers, could use the concept of a theory he had about him being able to time travel. Also they would have made the cosmic treadmill before superman kills them all. While superman is killing his teammates Barry travels to the cosmic treadmill. He time travels too a different moment than he did in BvS; which starts flashpoint. After what ever events happen in that movie, barry travels to the part in the past where he did in BvS, which explains why he would ask himself if he had traveled to the wrong moment, because he had before.

  • ChaoticTheGamer554

    DC is trying to copy Marvel but are making the movie and story worse than marvel itself

    • RandomGuy

      Add to the fact that Darkseid himself is a multiversal level villain

  • Joya Haymon

    I was afraid the flash movie would be EXACTLY the same as the show.. 😪 The show is amazing and I know the movie won’t come close, but at least change the storyline so we don’t compare the two things.

    Imma say something very controversial, and I’m fully prepared to die on my hill from anyone who thinks other wise. The Snyder Cut was better Endgame

    • brianchan8

      Well it is your opinion and while I disagree with it, it is still your opinion


      ok I will disagree with you just to see if you are really wanted to be dead just because someone has a different opinion than you

    I just want dc to be as good as marvel, have people who care about the characters write the story’s like marvel not people who just want some cash. The good dc movie in my opinion was dark night with ledger. Idk what dc is anymore.

    • Sangoku s
      Sangoku s

      Snyder do his movies because he love this universe, but he don't use a way to make it good for everyone (make jokes in it, add cool music or things to make his movies look better). He does not do that for money, he wasn't paid to create his new cut of Justice League. He has his own style to make his movies and people like it or hate it. James Gunn is also a fan of this universe, that's why his Suicide Squad could be great.

  • alhena11

      @A Dumpster There were theories and rumors that Leto’s Joker was actually Jason Todd aka Robin, and the letter ‘J’ tattooed on his face could’ve stood for Jason.

      They should’ve had The Batman be a prequel to Batman v Superman with Battinson playing a younger Batfleck, and they should’ve had Phoenix’s Joker torturing Leto’s Robin into becoming his successor.

    Well, I think that BvS should be existed in both reality considering they resurrected superman, the difference for that matter is, in the Josstice league continuity, flash didn't use his time travel to come back to Bruce and the story goes on. Then, after having that fun knightmare future, Barry came back to warn Bruce and then we have the Snyder's Justice League

    _Batman creating the Cosmic Treadmill like;_ Batman: "Powered by your super speed, this will allow you to travel back in time to a certain point. Like.. a cosmic treadmill." Flash: "...we can- probably do better than that, right?" Batman: "Like what?" Flash: "The... Quantum... Tunnel?" Batman: "No." Flash: "Rainbow Bridge?" Batman: "No." Flash: "The Bifrost?" Batman: "That's not even a word.." I'm just sayin~ Real sneaky Marvel references here, they could do it~

    You want to fix the DC movie universe? Fire Snyder. While everyone is lauding him for cleaning up a dumpster fire that he caused, it's easy to miss that every single f-up in every movie of the DC movie universe, every facet that fans of the comics hated (love them or hate them, they're the reason that the MCU does well), every conflict that got in the way of the productions, can be traced directly or indirectly back to Synder's interference.
