Trailer for Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League

An online campaign for Warner Bros to release two sequels to Justice League began trending yesterday, using the hashtag “#RestoreTheSnyderverse”.

A four-hour-long director’s cut of Justice League, entitled Zack Snyder’s Justice League, was released last week on HBO Max in the US.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League was commissioned following a lengthy fan campaign to “release the Snyder Cut”, a hypothetical version of the film assembled by filmmaker Zack Snyder, who left production on 2017’s original Justice League partway through.

Snyder has spoken in interviews about plans for another two sequels to Justice League, and even revealed some of the plot twists he had in store.

However, he has maintained that the sequels are not expected to be produced after the original Justice League failed to connect with audiences and critics.

Warner Bros executives have also stated that there are no plans to continue the Justice League films in their current iteration.

On social media, fans began to petition for the sequels to be greenlit, using the “#RestoreTheSnyderverse” tag.

“It’s astoundingly stupid that WB wants to put a bookend to Snyder’s DC Universe after the overwhelming support and love that’s been expressed,” wrote one person.

“Zack just needs one big @hbomax series to finish his story imo,” wrote someone else. “Like JL2/3 could be combined into one big series. Get the cast back together one more time and finish this story.”

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is available to watch on Sky and Now in the UK. You can read The Independent’s two-star review of the film here.
