I’ve never seen a fanbase so driven to make a movie happen.
In 2017, the original Justice League film was released. To be honest, I think we all know how that went.
Then came the legions of Zack Snyder’s Justice League fans making calls to the Super Hero movie gods to let Snyder release his cut of Justice League.
From trending on Twitter to online petitions, Snyder Cut fans used every platform possible to get the outcome they wanted.
In March of 2021, the army got its wish.
A wish that lasted 4 hours and 2 minutes.
Usually, I wouldn’t want to sit through a movie that’s over 3 hours long. But this film was the exception.
My older brother and I always bonded over DC, Star Wars, and Spider-Man. Batman was always the fan favorite for him and I.
I remember us talking for years about how we wanted a live-action Justice League movie to come out. There was rumors one would come out, and then finally there was word about the 2017 version. The amount of disappoint I felt from that movie was echoed by many other DC fans around the world.
So watching the Snyder Cut felt like redemption for me. A storyline, with characters that have meant a lot to me for so long, finally getting its due.
The return of Henry Cavill’s Superman. Ben Affleck’s Batman/Bruce Wayne getting the recognition he deserved. Everything felt right in the fandom.
The only thing left to do, is to finish the story.
The tale doesn’t end at the conclusion of the Justice League. More movies were originally planned to wrap up the Man of Steel story, as well as exploring the Knightmare future.
The end of Zack Snyder’s Justice League show the return of Jared Leto’s Joker and Batman leading a mix of heroes and villains on a mission through an apocalyptic-looking land.
We also see Superman return, but this time not as a friend.
What do you think? Should Warner Bros continue to #RestoretheSnyderverse? Or is it time to move on from this universe and start a new story?
The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, comes out on March 4th in theaters.
Recently, reports came out that Ben Affleck said The Flash movie set to debut towards the end of 2022 would put a “nice finish” to his time as the Dark Knight.
Although Affleck said this, it hasn’t stopped the calls for him to have his own Batman movie, and to finish the story after Justice League.
