Fans eagerly waiting for Warner Bros. to finally release Zack Snyder's directors cut of Justice League got some bad news on Tuesday, with the report that there are no plans to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on the company's upcoming streaming platform, HBO Max.
Of course, fans wanted to hear confirmation from Snyder himself, with one reaching out to Snyder on the social media platform Vero. When the fan told Snyder that he was losing hope, the director replied with a simple one-word response: "Don't."
The exchange was captured in two screenshot images and shared to Twitter with the caption, "For any doubters after that Variety article #ReleaseTheSnyderCut." It would appear as far as Snyder is concerned, the long saga of his director's cut of Justice League being released to the public is far from over.
The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement has been garnering a lot of attention in recent weeks, with a number of stars voicing their support in honor of the two-year anniversary of the film's theatrical release. Still, it's up to Warner Bros. to put up whatever money it would take to complete the currently unfinished Synder Cut.
Next up for the DC Extended Universe is Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), slated for release Feb. 7, 2020; Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984, coming June 5 2020; James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, which arrives August 6, 2021; and Matt Reeves' solo Batman film, which will swing into theaters June 25, 2021.
