Upon the release of Justice League, many die-hard fans were angered to see the result. Joss Whedon made extensive reshoots for the film which left many of Zack Snyder’s original scenes on the cutting room floor. On top of that, Warner Brothers mandated a 2-hour runtime which resulted in even more scenes getting cut out. Fans have since demanded WB release a “Snyder-Cut” with his original scenes and a longer runtime. A petition for the cut has even gained a sizable amount of signatures. It’s no secret that Zack Snyder has a huge fanbase, and the latest attempt to gain WB’s attention proves that.
Zack Snyder fans have staged a peaceful protest/photo op at WB in demand for the release of his cut of the film. The statement on Facebook reads this:
Join me (ITZMOE on YouTube) and other Snyder fans as we take a photo in front of Warner Bros. with a #ReleaseTheSnyderCut sign while wearing our Zack Snyder shirts/ DC shirts, & costumes to (peacefully) show our support for the release of a Snyder cut of Justice League! After we take the photo, we will all share it on ALL of our social media so hopefully it will spread and get it to Zack himself so he can see it, like he saw the “Thank You Zack Snyder” video I made!
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY SIGNS. I will have the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut sign and that is the ONLY sign that we want in the photo so the focus will be on that, so instead of bringing a sign, just wear any shirts you have supporting Zack, DC, or Justice League cosplay you may have.
**ABSOLUTELY NO SHIRTS/ SIGNS INSULTING WB/ JOSS/ ETC. WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE PHOTO!*** We want to show support for Zack Snyder, so we want to focus on our support and love for him and his work, NOT dissing others, so DO NOT bring shirts/ signs insulting others or you won’t be allowed in the photo. We don’t want to embarrass Zack and give Zack Snyder fans a bad name. We want to show him how much we appreciate him and make this a photo that he would be happy to share. PLEASE share this around everywhere so we can have a large group in the photo supporting Zack and his JL cut!!!
While they certainly do seem to have the right idea about keeping it peaceful, many have pointed out that this may tarnish Zack Snyder’s reputation. If this is a testament to the lengths his fans will go, other studios may not want to deal with that.
Another problem is that there is no evidence of a “Snyder-Cut” actually existing. There likely a rough cut of his version, but it would require the studio millions of dollars to completely finish it, special effects and all. There’s a small chance Warner Brothers would actually do this.
Zack Snyder has yet to comment on his cut of the film.
Only time will tell if fans receive the “Snyder-Cut” they’ve been longing and fighting for.
