Justice League Zack Snyder released last week, almost four years after the theater cut hit cinemas, following a long-running fan campaign calling on the director to return his vision of the film and release.
While the release of the film has proven that fans can come together to do something that is impossible to happen – and they could prove that there is a market for longer films / cuts released through streaming compared to the cinema – the whole thing is on air of controversy too.

Same with Disney’s Star Wars rows and Captain Marvel, much of the talk around the #SnyderCut has turned badly, with personal attacks and threats being made online, not only for movie fans but for people working on the project and for critics of the film as well.
In an interview with Variety, WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff has clearly criticized those who have engaged in such behavior.
“We don’t accept that at all,” she said. “That behavior is regrettable no matter what franchise you’re talking about or whatever business you’re talking about. It’s completely impossible.
“I am deeply disappointed by the fans who have chosen to go to that negative space in terms of DC, in terms of some of our executives. It is disappointing because we want this to be a place safe to be. “

Sarnoff continued: “We want DC to be a fandom that feels safe and inclusive. We want people to be able to talk about what they like, but not we do not want it to be a culture of putting off things that are a small faction, I am not happy with it.
“We’re not about that. We’re about favoring and celebration.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Sarnoff denied none Justice League series from Snyder, as well as a director’s cut of Suicide squad.
Justice League Zack Snyder available on HBO Max in the US and beyond Sky Cinema and NOW in the UK.
