Fans are banding together in an effort to remove director Zack Snyder from the future Justice League films.

Bryan Cruz has taken matters into his own hands by creating a petition to boot Snyder just days after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theatres. While Synder’s film has broken several box office records, it has received dismal reviews from critics. Snyder is already locked in to direct the next two Justice League films, but Cruz and the petition’s supporters have already seen enough.

"Zack Snyder is not the person to bring the Justice League to the big screen. He's had two chances now to adapt DC characters and has produced middling results," Cruz writes in the petition.

"Even if you loved Man of Steel and BvS. There has to come a time when WB and DC want someone at the helm that can create something that WON'T divide people in such a way.”

The petition has received more than 5,700 signatures as of Wednesday afternoon.

"The building blocks are there for a great different set of superhero movies. Good actors and actresses and even directors,” Cruz writes. “Zack Snyder is just not the guy that should be in charge of the biggest and most important films in the franchise. Especially with his track record now.”
