Joe has also been in favor of #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, and may have been inspired by the impact these campaigns can make. A few weeks ago the actor spoke with ComicBook about how the foundations were already laid for a movie about his character and that it would be a shame if they were wasted, but now that Warner prepares several series about DC on HBO Max, he could find himself in front of a new opportunity.
