Now that the sequel is finally making some headway, guardsRorschach actor Jackie Earle Haley says Zack Snyder must return to Man of Steel 2. After originally breaking out for his work in the original The bad news bears franchise and for its Oscar-nominated turn in 2006 small childrenHaley found new stardom for his role in Snyder’s adaptation of Alan Moore’s guards as Walter Kovacs, better known as Rorschach, a vicious antihero who acts as a legal outlaw after a government act that prevents any vigilante activity. Haley received much acclaim for his performance as Rorschach, namely for his gruff voice narrating the polarizing comic book adaptation.
Snyder would continue his work in the comics genre with Man of Steelthe Henry Cavill-led reboot of the Superman movie franchise that served as the launch pad for the DC Extended Universe. Although seeing a similar polarizing reception as guardsthe film’s success led to Snyder’s return for both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, the latter of which he infamously left halfway through production due to creative differences with the studio and the loss of his daughter. Because his relationship with WB crumbled during both Justice League‘s production and assembly Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguethe door seems closed for the filmmaker to return to the DCEU, though one actor is still hopeful.

Can Snyder return for? Man of Steel 2?
Snyder fans are pushing for the filmmaker’s return to the DCEU since his departure in Justice League‘s production, infamously putting pressure on WB and DC executives to release his share of the superhero crossover, and then to “#RestoreTheSnyderVerse” as he had a two-part plan for his story. Zack Snyder’s Justice League After it was released and debuted at the best reviews for the filmmaker in the DCEU, the fanbase remained hopeful that its success could lead to Snyder returning to finish his story or lead other projects. With reports of Henry Cavill’s Superman returning for a cameo in Black Adam and Ben Affleck return for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdommany have considered this the same way the studio is on its way to giving the public what they’ve been crying for.
That said, while guards actor Jackie Earle Haley might be with the fans hoping Snyder will make it Man of Steel 2, the chances of him returning to the herd seem pretty slim. The filmmaker previously expressed frustration at WB’s continued creative limitations while composing Zack Snyder’s Justice Leagueand since his roster is already packed with the launch of his new Netflix franchise, Rebel Moonand further expanding its Army of the Dead universe for the streamer, it seems unlikely he will have the time to get back into the superhero game for DC. Meanwhile, audiences can relive his apparent DCEU swan song with Zack Snyder’s Justice League streaming on HBO Max.
