The #RestoretheSnyderverse hashtag continues to trend pretty high on Twitter, nearly a year after Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released and fans got what they had been begging for. Well, those same fans are going to go apeshit if this rumor from “scooper” (you can’t be a scooper until something actually comes true) @MyTimeToShineH is accurate because it would mean the complete end of the Snyderverse.
The rumor is in regards to The Flash, which Andy Mushcietti completed shooting in October and reintroduces Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, along with Sasha Calle as Supergirl. That film will supposedly “erase every movie Zack Snyder has done,” meaning no more Ben Affleck as Batman and no more Henry Cavill as Superman.
Furthermore, The Flash will find Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) forming a brand new Justice League that would include Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Zachary Levi’s Shazam. What, no Jason Momoa as Aquaman? Weird.
We’ve heard separate rumors about the end of Affleck and Cavill’s DCEU run but this is one of the first I can remember that links them specifically. I’m convinced both actors are finished, and that The Flash will basically reset the DCEU. Not sure I buy the new Justice League thing, though.
Someone else who doesn’t buy it? Ezra Miller, who apparently debunked the rumor on Reddit.
The Flash opens on November 4th.
