Before James Gunn took up the new era of DC Superhero films, the Snyder Verse led by former DC director Zack Snyder, a lot of plans were in place for future films.

Opening up about it with Inverse, the storyboard artist Jay Olivia shared many of the plans that will not be realized after the exit of Snyder.

Although the recent Flash starring Ezra Miller was the last project of DCEU/Snyderverse, but it turns out it was going to be a start for laying the groundwork for several future projects in the DC world.


One of the big plans concerning the Villians was to make Reverse-Flash/ Zoom, the main antagonist in the whole DC universe along with Lex Luthor and Darkseid. Olivia revealed saying,

“It was Professor Zoom pulling the strings because he had come from the future to basically f*ck with Barry”

However, Zoom had a much more significant part to play as according to the storyboard artist saying,

“But also in the ancillary other films, you would see some of the influences of Zoom on the rest of the Justice League.”

But all that will not be realized as DC is turning a new leaf with James Gunn leading the upcoming DCU phase which is going to start from 2025 onwards.
