ComicBook.com reports that Jenkins made the admission in a recent interview, published by the French magazine Premiere, whereas it explained its reasons for missing the opportunity to direct a group film of superheroes.“I love comics, but I came to superheroes through movies,” she said. “There is in me this desire to emulate compared to the films which I saw child. A certain spirit which reigned at that time. Is it relevant when I shoot? I do not know. The point is, unlike other directors, I don’t really care about shared universes, continuity and that kind of detail. I’ve been contacted to make a Justice League movie in the past, and it doesn’t connect with me. Too many characters. “
It is not known if Jenkins was contacted during the new shoot of Zack Snyder Justice League, which was eventually finished by Joss Whedon, or if he was offered a follow-up film, or a completely different project from Justice League.
Snyder was announced as the director of Justice League in 2014, but had to move away from the film in its final stages due to a heartbreaking personal tragedy.
After years of campaigning for the release of his version of the film, filmmaker Man of Steel recently confirmed that the Snyder Cut – or at least a Snyder Cut – would arrive on HBO Max in 2021, and it could take the form of a four-hour movie, or even a series of TV episodes.
