Zack Snyder’s Justice League Could Be Coming To DC Comics, Too
Scott Snyder revealed that he was asked by DC to expand the mythology of Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut in comic book form.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut is still on track for a mid-2021 release, as the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice filmmaker’s vision for his own cut of the 2017 film will be airing on HBO Max. Before it hits the small screen, longtime Batman comic book writer Scott Snyder (no relation), revealed that he was asked to adapt the upcoming director’s cut to the page.
Earlier this year, Zack Snyder revealed that his vision of Justice League would be coming out on HBO Max. The announcement came after years of calls for the “Snyder Cut” to be released, following the lukewarm reception of the original film that Joss Whedon took over following a tragedy in Zack Snyder’s family. The new cut of the film will reportedly cost $70 million to complete and will feature characters that did not initially appear in Whedon’s cut, such as Jared Leto’s Joker, Zheng Kai’s Ryan Choi, and Ray Porter’s Darkseid.
Scott Snyder, who’s iconic run on Batman served as inspiration for Zack Snyder’s take on the character, was interviewed at this week’s CCXP Worlds to promote his current American Vampire 1976 run. Scott Snyder revealed that he was approached to help with a comic book adaptation of Zack Snyder’s Justice League to help build on the upcoming four-part film’s release. Snyder reportedly declined the opportunity since he’s working on a bunch of projects and joked that he couldn’t deal with being confused for Zack Snyder.
Meet the “new Nightwing” of DC Future State: Teen Titans
DC has shared some images from January’s Future State: Teen Titans #1 ahead of their virtual Justice League Family panel Friday afternoon, December 4 for Brazil’s CCXP Worlds.
The new images include three interior pages from the issue, along with a promo image that raises more questions than it provides answers about the title ahead of the two-issue series’s January 12 debut.
According to the image, Red X, a character who like Harley Quinn was created for a DC animated TV series – in this case, the early ’00s Teen Titans series – will make his comic book debut in Future State as the partner of the “new Nightwing” who appears to be wearing a Nightwing costume along with a variation of long-time Titans nemesis Deathstroke’s mask.
On the surface, this may seem like the introduction of another new character or the new mystery identity of an existing character until you realize this “new Nightwing” is wearing the same Nightwing costume as Dick Grayson as seen on the covers of Future State: Teen Titans #1 and #2. In fact, Dick/Nightwing is seen reaching for the Deathstroke mask on the cover of issue #1.
