“If you said to any of the actors in the movie ‘Well what happens in the movie’ or ‘What happens later’ or whatever for any movie. And they go ‘Well I got the script and it’s cool and I kind of know this and-‘ so [Ray Porter] and I were talking about this and what’s cool or what’s the right response to some questions,” Snyder said during a League of Mayhem live stream from The Nerd Queens, per Screen Rant.
“It’s a fair question to ask me, you know, like what do I say to the world about, you know, what happens when Darkseid comes to Earth? Then what? You know, Is that a thing?”
He continued: “The truth is that did I write and did I have and conceive a complete- do I know what happens when Darkseid… yes. I do know what happens. To say and to speculate about what that is would be exciting, I think that’s a fine thing.”
Asked by Geek House Show (per ComicBook.com) whether the ‘Snyder Cut’ of the film could prompt a demand for more stories about Darkseid in future, Porter said: “I hope so. I would like that. I would love to see that, and obviously I would hope that whoever does that will have me along for the ride.”
He added: “Yeah, I would love to see a continuation of it. And honestly, I personally would love to see a continuation of Zack’s story. So yes, I really hope so. That would be great. I’ve not heard anything about it, but you know. Hope.”
Justice League is streaming on HBO Max now.
