In their cute online exchange, Leslie Jones is ready to sign the dotted line for Zack Snyder's Justice League 2. But there are some specifics regarding the SNL star's role in said (imaginary) project. For instance, she wants to play a villain. What's more, she demands any future installment in the franchise also be at least four hours. Bring on #LongAssMovie2.
While Leslie Jones might be ready to join the cast of a Justice League follow-up, we probably shouldn't hold our collective breathe regarding that possibility. Warner Bros. made an official statement that seems to end those talks, referring to Snyder's DCEU movies as a completed trilogy. Still, that hasn't stopped fans from already calling for a restoration of the SnyderVerse.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is unique because it's not officially part of the DC Extended Universe canon. So it's likely that the various narrative seeds the filmmaker was planting will never come to bloom. But given the Snyder Cut's reception, perhaps Warner Bros. can be convinced to pick up on certain characters or plot lines. Only time will tell.
DC fans can watch Zack Snyder's Justice League now. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your next movie experience.
