The success of the Snyder Cut movement undoubtedly paved the way for DC fans to launch a few other campaigns and one that is suddenly gaining traction on social media is the movement to have Joel Schumacher's "real" cut of Batman Forever to be released. The desire of Bat fans to see the "darker" version of the 1995 film sparked when producer Akiva Goldsman said that he's actually seen the version of the movie they originally intended to release.

Believers of the existence of the Schumacher Cut are planning to launch a brigade that will officially kick off on June 16th which happens to be the 26th year since Batman Forever premiered on the big screen. The obvious intention is to revive the #ReleaseTheSchumacherCut movement in an attempt to replicate the success of the Snyder Cut campaign. The question is, will this new movement pay off? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

By no means is Batman Forever the best live-action interpretation of the caped crusader but for some reason, the majority of the DC fandom has collectively developed an appreciation for the film throughout the years. In fact, you seldom see fans talk trash at the third installment in the Bat-quadrilogy of the 90s. On top of that, the rewatch value of the film which saw the only time Val Kilmer donned the Dark Knight's cape and cowl is incredibly high and even I have to admit that it's one of my guilty pleasures.

Batman Forever is streaming on HBO Max.
