Zack Snyder's issues with Warner Bros. are well-documented but just when you thought the new regime headed by David Zaslav would've marked the end of the years-long beef between the two parties that originally resulted in Snyder's ousting from the then-DC Extended Universe, it looks like their problems have not been resolved still.

Now, the spotlight is once again put on the seemingly neverending tension between WB and Snyder with the production company now facing backlash for allegedly blocking a charity screening of the director's four-hour mega cut of Justice League.

According to Twitter user Neil Woods, he was in the process of arranging an IMAX screening of the Snyder Cut that would have benefited Ireland's Suicide Prevention Charity. Of course, it's common knowledge to fans that the director has been advocating for suicide prevention after his daughter Autumn succumbed to her depression and ended her own life in 2017.

All proceeds of the supposed screening would have gone to PIPS Suicide Prevention Ireland Charity and it turns out that the local theater Cineworld already agreed to the screening until WB UK denied it.

Airing his frustration on the social media platform, Woods wrote: "Thanks for blocking a charity event WB, you're stand-up guys, and I can see why you're such a reputable company." Warner Bros. Discovery has yet to issue a statement regarding the matter.

Meanwhile, it looks like Snyder's DCU journey has truly come to an end and despite fans being hopeful that James Gunn and Peter Safran will give the SnyderVerse another go, DC Studios is clearly headed into a different creative direction that doesn't concern any of Snyder's previous DC work.

Both versions of Zack Snyder's Justice League are available to stream on HBO Max.
