Will #RestoreTheSnyderVerse Ever Stop Trending on Twitter?

For better or worse, the DCEU is influenced and driven mainly by the ideas of director Zack Snyder. His takes on classic DC superheroes like Superman have been particularly controversial, but he's likewise gained a litany of fans and followers. These loyal supporters are incredibly vocal, with their dedication to seeing Snyder's vision told resulting in the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Ever since his version of Justice League was released, fans of Zack Snyder have requested that Warner Bros. go a step further and continue with his DCEU plans. Those cries to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse have only intensified in recent months, and it doesn't seem like anything will quell them. Here's a look at the changing ambitions of Snyder's followers and how they can be sated.

From #ReleaseTheSnyderCut to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse

As mentioned, fans of Snyder and audiences, in general, were interested in seeing a version of the Justice League movie closer to his original cut, as the theatrical version was seen across the board as being subpar at best. Due to industry insight and rumors, many came to believe that a finished version closer to Snyder's vision for the film existed, and they subsequently demanded WB to put it out there for audiences to enjoy.

This eventually saw Zack Snyder's Justice League come to the HBO Max app in early 2021, and the reception was night and day. Not only were Snyder fans elated, but both critics and audiences saw the movie as vastly superior to the version released four years prior. With their goal of seeing the movie released, Snyder's fans then changed their tactics to demanding that Warner Bros. continue Snyder's plans for future films, ensuring more DCEU movies that matched this tone and scope.

Different DCEU movies have come out since the original version of Justice League that are far removed from Snyder's general direction of the universe. Aquaman, Shazam! and even the R-rated The Suicide Squad were far lighter in tone, making them more akin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Wonder Woman 1984 was also almost campy in nature, making it clear that the first movie, while not directed by Snyder, was clearly made with his movies in mind. Strangely enough, even as many of these movies have been more warmly received, no DCEU film to date has had as much hype, anticipation and excitement surrounding it as Zack Snyder's Justice League. Thus, fans of what he was planning to do with the DCEU don't want to come down from that high.

Warner Bros. Has to Answer the Call

Snyder's fans have become inspired by pretty much any news coming out of WB to begin a series of tweets asking to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, hoping that even the slightest bit of footage shown in promos and ads for Zack Snyder's Justice League were positive signs. Unfortunately for them, there's been next to nothing official from Warner Bros. suggesting that Snyder would return, or that films similar to his would continue to be made. One exception has been an acknowledgment that the "Snyder Cut" was indeed a global phenomenon of fandom, but WB seems hesitant to move forward with its success.

The only way that calls to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse will begin to mellow out is if WB does exactly that. This would, of course, involve movies or shows that follow Snyder's controversial path, and people who disliked where he took the DC characters will likely dislike those projects, as well. WB and DC seem more interested in a new direction trailblazed by upcoming movies such as Black Adam, though that will all be determined by how well that movie succeeds.

Likewise, with Marvel movies that aren't connected to Spider-Man and Sony slipping somewhat in the hype department, now might be the best time to give DC fans the best of both worlds, -- films that offer more traditional looks at their heroes, as well as SnyderVerse projects that cater to those fans. Whether or not that's financially feasible is questionable at best, but until the director himself heads back to Warner Bros. to helm a DC project, fans will continue to clamor for the company to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse.
