With James Gunn rebooting the DCEU with The Flash, a lot of fans were sure that Zack Snyder’s time with DC was definitely over. However, Snyder has caused a stir online with his recent post about ‘Lord Darkseid’ with the hashtag #fullcircle.

The post has already earned more than 2 million views with close to 60k likes. We don’t know what this is for exactly, but with the mention of Darkseid, it’s very likely it will have something to do with DC.
Snyder had essentially left DC after what happened with Justice League, but for years fans have been hounding the studio to release Snyder’s version of the movie—resulting in the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max back in 2021.
Though that film was greatly received by the fandom, it still didn’t seem to interest anyone in WB, and even after James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as DC heads, we still didn’t get an update on what Zack Snyder was working on.
With Snyder having a full idea of where he wanted to take his Justice League movies, I’m guessing this could be a teaser for a comic told completely in the ZSJL timeline. I’d be even more surprised if we actually got an animated film with the cast returning to provide their voices. The way things are though, I think Snyder taking on a DC project after all this seems like an impossibility.
Then again, that’s just my guess.
Watch out for Snyder’s big Darkseid announcement coming April 28–30.
