Wonder Woman 1984 Sets Up The Justice League Snyder Cut Plot
With Wonder Woman 1984 finally out and in the rear-view mirror, the eyes of movie-loving DC fans turn to the next big comic book release from Warner Bros: the fabled, and now very real, Justice League Snyder Cut. With the latest DCEU movie being set between Wonder Woman and Diana’s later appearances in Batman V Superman and Justice League, it has to do a lot to keep it canonical.
While there has definitely been a strong attempt made to make Wonder Woman 1984 fit within DCEU continuity, it also falls down several times too, particularly in regards to the upcoming Justice League: Director’s Cut, which has a lot more plot to contradict.
On October 21, the Hollywood Reporter revealed that the Snyder Cut would feature a return of the Joker as portrayed by Jared Leto in 2016’s Suicide Squad. It was a surprising announcement because Leto’s Joker was nowhere to be found in the theatrical cut of Justice League, and Leto specifically had to be called in to shoot new scenes that Snyder had originally envisioned for the film. Beyond that, we don’t really know much about the role Joker will play in the film-turned-miniseries, or what it might mean for Leto’s future as the character, being that we’ve already gotten another iteration of the Joker in Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar-winning turn in 2019’s Joker, and we’re also getting another, separate iteration of Batman in The Batman, due out next year.
