Asked for the podcast Happy Sad Confused, the director clarified that if this film was made, neither Henry Cavill (Superman), nor Ben Affleck would be involved in the project.

“I don’t think they will be involved. I think it would be an independent project. I will do it 100%, Watchmen style, within the framework. I don’t think it would be very expensive to produce for be honest. It’s pretty daring. “

The comic-book The Dark Knight ReturnIt was a great inspiration for Snyder’s film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yet the director still dreams of adapting the original comic into a full-fledged film with a whole new cast.

Although it is not yet clear whether this film will see the light of day, the idea of ​​a stand-alone true to Miller’s work, much like what Snyder has done with Watchmen – The Guardians before, might get fans excited.

In the meantime, Army of the Dead, the filmmaker’s latest feature, is available on Netflix and his Justice League can still be viewed on OCS.
