When the instability of DC studios is almost hitting its peak, the fans want to uproot it completely. They want to sell one big asset Warner Bros still holds. And that is Snyder’s vision of DC, the Snyderverse.
Jack Snyder is not a new name for movie geeks, as they have always showered their love on Snyder. From directing films like 300, Watchmen, and Dawn of the Dead, he gained immense respect.
Now, after the completion of The Batman Trilogy, DC movies didn’t even come close to that popularity.
The fans had a great time watching films like Batman VS Superman and Man of Steel. But that time is in the past now as DC moves ahead with the guidance of James Gunn and Peter Safran.
Zack Snyder has an extremely dedicated fanbase, we have seen how they have flooded social media with hashtags like #RestoreTheSnyderVerse and #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. Now that was absolute power, the fans spoke.
And WB was somewhat forced to give Snyder the time and finances to complete his vision. But this time, things seem a bit more complicated.
Firing stars such as Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot already caused the wave of rage amongst the fans. And we can assume it is a reaction to their disappointment but they must direct it in a positive way.
Now Zack Snyder has a lucrative deal with Netflix and is working on films like Army of the Dead and the upcoming Rebel Moon. Netflix clearly doesn’t have their line of superheroes and thus this ‘movement’.
This is indeed ambitious, but too aspiring for its own good. Now a part of it is focusing on what they love, they are focusing on getting what they want…positive indeed. But a part of it is focusing on firing James Gunn.
Now as the DC Universe is rebooting, it seems practically impossible for Netflix to acquire the franchise and WB seems too determined to give it one more go.
