Zack Snyder envisioned MAN OF STEEL as “chapter one” of DC Films story

Justice League

It’s fair to say that Zack Snyder’s time at DC Films was highly divisive. Whilst many enjoyed the interpretations of the characters the films themselves did not connect with the moviegoing public. We may never know his plans were going in to Batman v Superman and beyond. But thanks to storyboard artist Jay Oliva we have a little more insight into his thought process.

Oliva has directed many of the DC animated movies whilst also acting as storyboard artist on the DC Films pantheon. When asked by a fan on Twitter about a Man of Steel sequel Oliva enlightened fans that a “sequel” was never in the plan.

It’s true Batman v Superman does feel like a direct continuation rather than a sequel. The same can be said of Justice League. Where could the story have gone next?
