They're calling it a trilogy knowing damn well that they kneecapped Snyder at every turn with their own poor decision-making and what was supposed to be three Man of Steel/Superman movies turned into "three movies with Superman in them", when BvS was a two-parter they condensed it into one, and JL was supposed to be a three-part film. WB is so stupid.



New information has surfaced concerning the script(s) for New Gods, with an interview between Jonita Davis and Aaron Michel Johnson. AMJ originally wrote a spec script for New Gods and details his experience getting it to WB.

Aaron Michael Johnson told MulDiversity that his original NEW GODS script was supposed to be tied to Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman and Zack Snyder's Justice League... He wanted to tell a Lord of the Rings style mythological epic, diving in deep into Jack Kirby's Fourth World.


He said it would give us a glimpse into the fall or Ares. Ares teams up with Uxas to kill the Old Gods, with Uxas absorbing their power through the Omega Effect. Ares is cast out of Olympus by Zeus, but Uxas then kills Zeus, increasing his power. This is narrated by Metron.


Metron would guide is through the origins of New Gods, Darkseid's origins, Izaya aka Highfather, the great battle of New Genesis. We would see Darkseid riding a giant hellhound as his steed with his army ready to destroy New Genesis.


Darkseid believes that if he can destroy the source of Life itself, then it would lead him to the Anti-Life Equation. He had the original 4 Furies, Kalibak, and the fight gets so bad that the Source separates them. Meanwhile, Metron sat above them watching.


Darkseid and Izaya look to Metron for an answer. Darkseid and Izaya bring their sons Scott and Orion for the trade. This is when we meet a young Barda teaching Scott about Apokolips. Granny Goodness introduces herself to Scott. This is the prologue.


By the way, Aaron then revealed that while WB loved his script and told him they were moving forward. Shortly after Zack Snyder stepped away from JL 2017, they told him to remove connections from the SnyderVerse. They had him remove references from Earth events and Steppenwolf.


They had him remove things about Orion's parentage, Steppenwolf, Tigra, the "betrayal" DeSaad was referencing in ZSJL, and hints of Barda potentially being an Amazon.


Aaron says that Josstice League and the shake ups at WB and DC were creating a shift in how New Gods could be approached as potentially its own thing disconnected.


He started getting script notes from someone who actually knew about the New Gods source material. The theory was that since Geoff Johns became head of DC Films, he was possibly the one giving notes.


Suddenly, Aaron's twitter was getting followed by countless random New Gods accounts that were likely set up by marketing. He was getting congratulations from numerous people, even someone from Marvel. Aaron hadn't even announced his script publicly yet.


Here's where it gets messed up. Aaron's script reader told him that he had a great idea, a great script...but he didn't have a producer or director attached. He then ghosted Aaron. This was January 2018. Two Months Later:


One month prior to any of this, five pages of the purported New Gods script leaked, with AMJ's name on it.
