Many disgruntled fans have not shied away from voicing their opinions of Justice League's theatrical version, culminating in online petitions and, more recently, a full-blown website lobbying for Warner Bros. to release a Zack Snyder director's cut of the film. Now, some of Snyder's supporters have taken their agenda to the next level by organizing a protest -- or, rather, a "photo op" -- outside of Warner Bros. Studios.

Announced on Facebook, the Saturday event is being organized by YouTube personality Itzmoe, who writes:
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!
While a good portion of online criticism surrounding Justice League has been aimed at Joss Whedon, who succeeded Snyder following a family tragedy, the protest's description adamantly declares the objection is meant to symbolize support for Snyder's full vision of the film, and not animosity toward Whedon or Warner Bros:
**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!!!
Despite the unusual circumstances behind the movie's production, it appears that Warner Bros. does not have any plans to release any director's cut.
Expected for digital release on Jan. 30, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
