    Snyder’s plan, as revealed in the interview with GQ, would have taken Superman on a harrowing journey. He explained, “He was going to have to succumb to the Anti-Life,” a powerful force that could control minds and emotions. This fall from grace would have been a turning point for the character.  

    Snyder elaborated, “be destroyed, turn back time, and then get his chance for this battle against Darkseid.” Imagine a Superman corrupted by darkness, only to rise again and confront the ultimate villain. All this sounds like it could be a truly epic character arc.

    Snyder concluded by stating this storyline would have “finished his trilogy of becoming this guardian, and sort of, return him to his humanity.” This suggests a Superman who, through hardship and darkness, rediscovers his core values and his connection to humanity. It’s a fresh perspective on the iconic hero, one that emphasizes growth and self-discovery.

    A narrative that would challenge the perception of the hero. It leaves fans pondering what the future holds for the Man of Steel. Snyderverse fans would want nothing more than to see this arc of Superman. However, whether Snyder’s bold vision will ever be brought to life still remains a question.
