Ever in-the-know, Kevin Smith has teased listeners of his Fatman Beyond podcast with details on what Zack Snyder was originally planning to do with the “Justice League” films.

Per Smith, Snyder’s “Justice League” would’ve been the first part of a trilogy that would’ve culminated with Darkseid on Earth, bringing Batman’s terrifying vision from “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to life.

The second part sounds the most intriguing, with events taking a dark “Empire Strikes Back”-style turn as the heroes head to the home planet of Darkseid, Apokolips.

Smith believes we missed out on something pretty spesh.

In other ‘what could’ve been’ news, it’s been revealed that “Guardians of the Galaxy” and now “The Suicide Squad” director James Gunn was offered the chance to direct a new “Superman” movie last year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn didn’t need too long to consider bringing Superman back to the big screen – but he did briefly consider doing a flick on Supes’s dog, Krypto.

Considering what magic he worked on Rocket and Groot, you can almost envision what Gunn would’ve done with the super pooch.

With Rocky always up for another round, and John Rambo currently trending on the twittersphere, no surprise to hear Sylvester Stallone is perusing his CV for other classics he can brush off.

While we await word on the tardy “Nighthawks” sequel – c’mon! – Sly teases a possible sequel to ’80s two-hander “Tango & Cash”, and confirms plans for the previously-rumored “Cobra” series.

Stallone, out stumping this week’s “Rambo : Last Blood”, tells Fandango that Robert Rodriguez is responsible for the next incarnation of “Cobra”.

“I’m talking with Robert Rodriguez right now about Cobra, which looks like that could happen… It’s basically his baby now.”

Sly, who collaborated with Rodriguez on the fx-heavy family film “Spy Kids 3D : Game-Over”, suggests that the Austin-based filmmaker has plans only to reboot the 1986 feature for the small screen (likely Rodriguez’s own El Rey Network).

In terms of what other films in his catalog, Stallone would likely to sequelise?

“I would do Tango & Cash in a second. I know, with Kurt [Russell], it’s not about a caper… it’s just us doing our thing.”

Stallone said he’s even spoke to Russell about the idea and while the actor was hesitant, according to the “Rocky” star, he seems somewhat hopeful.

Interestingly, this is more than just a hypothetical proposition. Stallone further revealed that he’s actually talked to Kurt Russell about the notion of a sequel While Russell sounds hesitant, based on

“‘I don’t know, Sly… There we were in our prime and now we’re in our unprime, I dunno.’ So I said, Kurt, ‘I’m telling you, ya gotta go in on this.’ So he said, ‘I’ll talk to you when I get back.'”
