A Wikipedia page centered on the elusive Zack Snyder cut of Justice League is currently being considered for deletion.
The page, titled "Versions of Justice League," documents everything from Snyder and Chris Terrio's original script, the 2017 theatrical release, Snyder's plans for Justice League 2 and 3 and movements such as #ReleaseTheSnyderCut and #ProjectComicCon. However, it's been flagged for deletion for being both hyper-niche and biased.
"The page goes into such excessive detail on every tiny aspect of Zack Snyder's Justice League and its process in reaching theaters that it seems unlikely to interest or meaningfully inform anyone except dedicated fans of the director's work who are heavily invested in seeing the 'Snyder Cut' released," user Gargus-SCP argued in his nomination on the Articles for deletion page. "In fact, it also seems unlikely this subject rises to the standards of notability for such a minutely detailed article, and largely exists so it can be shared in celebration that Wikipedia thinks the Snyder Cut notable enough to deserve such a lengthy article. Smacks of fan bias at every turn."
For the uninitiated, the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement was launched by fans who were disappointed by 2017's Justice League, which notoriously went through a series of massive reshoots under Joss Whedon after Snyder left the project due to a family tragedy.
However, while some are in agreement that the page should be deleted, others believe it not only meets Wikipedia's standard but that it provides valuable information for fans. In fact, even the original page creator chimed in on the matter.
"Editor bias is a pretty bold claim," user Fezmar9 said in response to the nomination for deletion. "What bias do I have and what evidence do you have that I have one? I thought it was an interesting topic and decided to make an article about it. I felt I neutrally added information whether it was positive or negative. Both the 'The 'Snyder Cut' (2016–2017)' and '#ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement' sections include criticism paragraphs. If I was biased toward the subject, wouldn't I omit that information? And if you feel it contains any biases, wouldn't it be easier to just adjust the language you feel is biased than delete the whole article? I also feel the subject easily meets the WP:GNG. The article in its current state has 134 sources with TONS more out there, so the coverage is significant. The sources provided were also present on Justice League (film)which passed a GA nom so I assume they're considered reliable. None of the sources are first-party, so they're all independent of Warner, DC and Snyder. I see no validity to your nomination."
Over the past several months, Snyder has been trickling out more and more stills from his unfinished version of Justice League, adding additional fuel the flames of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement and giving new hope to those who had given up on ever seeing his vision come to life. Nevertheless, with Warner Bros. seemingly uninterested in continuing in the direction Snyder set up with 2013's Man of Steel, a completed Snyder Cut of Justice League feels like little more than a pipe dream.
