DCU Fans Want Snyderverse in Netflix, James Gunn Shuts Down Absurd Campaign

As the DC universe goes through a full rebranding, some projects might be fully dead and gone. DC Studios' most sought-after movie, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, aka the Snyderverse, hasn’t reached its final form as Snyder left the production before it was even completed. Since Justice League’s November 2017 release, Snyder’s defenders have gathered under one demand: "Release the Snyder Cut." Snyderverse fans are eager to keep the project alive in some capacity. That’s why they started a new campaign to sell movie rights to another platform.

The #SellTheSnyderVerseToNetflix campaign has been going on for a while now. The idea is to try to get Netflix to distribute the Snyderverse on their platform, allowing the filmmaker's unfinished vision to go on outside the DCU. DC Studios co-head James Gunn is known to debunk rumors or false hopes that surround the DC universe that he's building with Peter Safran, so he took to Twitter to respond to the idea of the movement.

“I have to say, this has got to be the wackiest hashtag ever since 1) Netflix hasn’t expressed any such interest (although we’ve discussed other stuff) & 2) Zack hasn’t expressed any interest & seems to be happy doing what he’s doing (and, yes, we too have talked).” Gunn brutally answered.

Another fan then asked, "How did the conversation go between the Peacemaker creator and Snyder?" and Gunn wrote back, “He contacted me to express his support about my choices. He’s a great guy. Again, he seems happy with the massive world-building he’s doing now.”

Since DCU Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters was announced, Snyder hasn't made any public comments about the future of the franchise, but fans never stop hoping that his unfinished project with DC will meet its satisfying conclusion soon. As of the moment, the Justice League is occupied with Netflix’s Rebel Moon as well as other projects.

DCU’s brand new universe is set to commence in 2025, containing a promising roster of DC film and television projects such as Booster Gold, Swamp Thing, Paradise Lost, The Authority, Lanterns, Waller, and Superman: Legacy. Creature Commandos, The Brave and the Bold, and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.
