Author: S.C/ February 15, 2023

Fans of Zack Snyder’s Justice League have taken to social media to express their desire to see the SnyderVerse sold to Netflix. With the hashtags #SellSnyderVerseToNetflix and #SellZSJLToNetflix trending worldwide, it’s clear that fans are united in their passion for the SnyderVerse and their hope that it will find a new home on the streaming platform.

The SnyderVerse, which includes Snyder’s version of Justice League as well as his previous DC films Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, has been a point of contention among fans since the release of the original Justice League film in 2017. After Snyder was forced to step down from the project due to personal reasons, the film was completed by Joss Whedon, who made significant changes to Snyder’s original vision. This resulted in a film that was widely panned by fans and critics alike.

However, the release of the Snyder Cut on HBO Max in 2021 changed everything. Fans finally got to see Snyder’s original vision for the film, which was a vast improvement over the original cut. The Snyder Cut was a massive success for HBO Max, with many fans calling for a continuation of the SnyderVerse.

Actor Wayne T. Carr, who played John Stewart/Green Lantern in the Snyder Cut, has been a vocal advocate for the #SellSnyderVerseToNetflix campaign. In a series of posts on Twitter, Carr shared his desire to see Netflix purchase the SnyderVerse, posting images of himself in front of a green screen with director Zack Snyder and using the hashtag #SellSnyderVerseToNetflix. He also posted a second image featuring the Snyder Cut logo in the middle of a design that featured all of the Justice League’s individual logos in a circle surrounding the silver “JL.”

Carr’s posts have been met with enthusiastic support from fans, who are eager to see the SnyderVerse continue. The campaign to sell the SnyderVerse to Netflix has created a huge buzz on social media, with fans united in their passion for Snyder’s vision for the DC universe.

Why not Restore the Snyderverse?

Despite the significant achievements of the Snydercut, Warner Bros has decided not to continue the Snyderverse. With 34.7B social media impressions, the film has created a buzz on social media platforms, indicating the interest of fans. The film has also received positive reviews from top publications, with Variety and IMDb ranking it among the top ten best films of 2021. The Snydercut has even become the most bought Hollywood movie in India’s Book my Show app, and the top-streamed comic book movie in China. Additionally, the film has gained popularity on the Blu-Ray market, ranking among the top three sales. The Snydercut has sparked a massive discussion on Twitter, making it the most discussed film of 2021. Despite its global phenomena status, Warner Bros has chosen to discontinue the Snyderverse, leaving fans disappointed and questioning the rationale behind such a decision.

It remains to be seen if Netflix will make a move to purchase the SnyderVerse, but the fan support for the campaign is a testament to the power of fandom and the impact that social media can have. The #SellSnyderVerseToNetflix campaign shows that when fans come together, they can create a movement that can potentially change the course of a franchise. Whether or not the SnyderVerse finds a new home on Netflix, the passion and dedication of its fans will continue to be a driving force in the world of fandom.
