A recent report from Rolling Stone sparked tremendous buzz over Zack Snyder's cut of 2017's Justice League. According to the report, the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut fan campaign consisted of bot-generated movements. The report also unveiled that Rolling Stone spoke with 20 people involved with both 2017's cut and Snyder's cut of the film, and most of them believed that Snyder "manipulated" the massive fan campaign. Even one source blatantly claimed that “Zack was like a Lex Luthor wreaking havoc.”
This jaw-dropping report instantly startled DC fans, but that doesn't stop them from supporting Snyder — who is at one point labeled as the future of the DC Universe.
Now, amid the accusations being thrown at the critically-acclaimed DC director, fans still somehow back up the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign, claiming that the movement was real and was initiated by legitimate fans.
Take a look at what the DC fans are saying to back up Zack Snyder:
A few hours later after the report surfaced, Zack Snyder posted a cryptic tweet on his Twitter page:
While Ray Fisher — who plays Cyborg in Justice League hits back with the same photo along with the caption: "Zack Snyder’s Justice League is available for digital download today! Let’s show the world who the masters of 1’s and 0’s are!" See Fisher's tweet here.
Back when Justice League's Snyder's Cut premiered on HBO Max, Samba TV (via CBR) reported that over 1.8M households streamed the film on its first four days of premiere. 39 days after its release, Samba TV followed up a report with a total of 3.7 million viewership record for the film.
Despite the controversies, of course, real fans would surely defend not just Zack Snyder, but mainly his original cut of 2017's Justice League. However, if these reports are proven authentic, this would extremely jeopardize Snyder's future in the DCEU.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is now available for digital release.
