James Gunn made an announcement regarding a DCU reboot, in which he revealed that the Snyderverse would be discontinued and that the co-CEO preferred to start from scratch. While this news was received positively by many DC fans, several fans of the Snyderverse expressed their discontent and began campaigns to reinstate Zack Snyder.
After signing with Netflix, Zack Snyder has been entrusted with a great deal of confidence by the streaming giant, who even announced a sequel of Rebel Moon before the release of the first film. In light of this news, fans of the filmmaker have launched a new campaign, hoping that Netflix would take up the remnants of the DCU and offer them the opportunity to see more of their beloved actors in their iconic roles.
What is the Viral Campaign about?
Fans of Zack Snyder have made multiple attempts to watch more of the filmmaker’s work. However, upon learning that Snyder’s creative vision is not appreciated by DC Studios, fans have turned to a platform that values the filmmaker’s perspective. To that end, they have initiated an online campaign with the hashtag “sellthesnyderversetonetflix,” hoping to persuade the streaming service to revive Zack Snyder’s vision.
As part of the ongoing online campaign to restore the Snyderverse, a fake video recently went viral on Twitter. The video featured a photoshopped image of Zack Snyder as the Man of Steel, accompanied by a message that appeared to be written by the filmmaker. The message implored Warner Bros. and DC Comics to sell Snyder’s universe to Netflix, allowing the director to continue his vision of the Snyderverse and create films such as Man of Steel 2 and a Batman movie starring Ben Affleck. The video was shared with the caption “Today is the day we trend! Today we make our voices be heard! Today we show @wbd @DCComics and @netflix what we really want! Today we help RESTORE the SNYDERVERSE!!!” It is remarkable to witness the extent to which fans are working to resurrect the Snyderverse, despite the decision made by James Gunn to discontinue the project due to its challenges and issues that could impact the quality and success of future DC films. To be fair, the fans’ use of hashtags has been effective
