James Gunn’s Kingdom Come Film: The Ideal Finale to the Snyderverse

James Gunn has teased a movie based on the comic storyline Kingdom Come for the DC Universe, and if it does happen, it would be the perfect way to end the Snyderverse. The Snyderverse has seemed to be dead for a while, with the non-canonical film Zack Snyder’s Justice League being the latest entry; DC is now pivoting to Gunn’s reboot. Although it has problems, the Snyderverse has an incredibly dedicated fanbase, and DC Studios needs to figure out a way to give the Snyderverse a proper send-off. Gunn’s Kingdom Come movie could be the franchise’s best opportunity for such a conclusion.


Since the start of the DCEU, the franchise has needed help getting off the ground. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first two movies in Zack Snyder’s DCEU, had a strong vision, but they didn’t do well with critics or audiences, so Snyder had to change his plans. Once Snyder left the franchise, the DCEU started making movies like Wonder Woman, Shazam!, and The Suicide Squad that stand independently. People liked these movies, but I never felt they were leading up to anything. Now that James Gunn is in charge of DC Studios, he is changing the DC Universe and leaving the Snyderverse behind.

Decoding DC’s Kingdom Come: A Comprehensive Guide

Kingdom Come is a four-part series from DC Comics in 1996. It is a major crossover story with many of DC’s best-known heroes. In Kingdom Come, DC’s heroes are split into two groups and fight each other. This is similar to Marvel’s Civil War. Kingdom Come is one of DC’s most famous “Elseworlds” stories, which are stories that don’t take place in the central DC universe and where almost anything could happen. Kingdom Come is not canon because so many people die and so much damage is done, but it is still one of the most interesting Justice League stories.

Snyderverse 2

Kingdom Come takes place in the future after the Justice League has broken up and many years have passed. The story begins with a new superhero named Magog. Magog is a very violent person, and unlike DC’s old guard, he doesn’t mind killing people. When Magog kills high-profile bad guys like the Joker, the public quickly backs the hero, and other superheroes try to be as violent as Magog. After superheroes and villains become more violent and destroy many of the United States, Superman decides to reform the Justice League and show the world what it means to be a real hero. But things work out differently than planned.

The superheroes in Kingdom don’t all work together. Instead, they are split into four main groups. Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash are part of the new Justice League. However, Batman is in charge of a group called the Silent Calvary, which thinks the old Justice League members should step down. Lex Luthor makes the Mankind Liberation Front, which includes Shazam, Catwoman, and an Elseworlds version of Robin. Magog’s Justice Batallion, on the other hand, has Captain Atom and Peacemaker. Throughout the series, these ideological differences kill a lot of heroes and villains, and Kingdom Come lets the viewer decide who’s right.
