With Director Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League finally coming to HBO Max in 2021, fans are wondering where and when to place Zack Snyder’s Justice League in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) timeline.
In an interview with Beyond the Trailer, Snyder addressed the question, and confirmed that his films exists outside the current DCEU continuity in the “Snyderverse,” which includes 2013’s Man of Steel, 2016’s Batman v Superman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
“It’s kind of separate now from what I would say the DC cinematic universe [is] in continuity,” he said. “I think it’s divergent, in that way. And I think that’s a good thing.” The director went on to praise DC and the emphasis its puts on “individual voices” for its films.
