It's been more than a year since Justice League debuted in theaters, and despite its poor commercial and critical reception, some fans are still clamoring for the release of the so-called "Snyder Cut," representing the vision of original director Zack Snyder.
Fervent supporters of the "Release the Snyder Cut" movement have raised money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention while simultaneously lobbying Warner Bros. to release an alternate edit of Justice League, the lowest-grossing DC Extended Universe film to date. Once the initiative reached its charity goal, a plane was flown over Warner Bros.' Burbank offices, towing a banner that read "Release the Snyder Cut." Snyder was able to catch a glimpse of the passing plane, and shared a video with his followers on Vero to acknowledge the banner and their continued support.
"That is caring," Snyder wrote in the accompanying caption, which included a praying hands emoji.
Snyder has teased his long-term DCEU plans, and shared behind-the-scenes photos of sequences that didn't make it into Justice League's theatrical release. Snyder exited the film in May 2017 following a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to oversee what became extensive, and expensive, reshoots. That turmoil, and the finished product, resulted in Snyder's fans lobbying for the release of the "Snyder Cut," although it remains unclear whether the director completed enough material for such an edit. Warner Bros. appears to have no interest in releasing an alternate version of the film.
