Justice League fans disappointed with the theatrical cut of the film are now destroying their Blu-ray and DVD copies of the film to celebrate the announcement of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. and Snyder announced the director’s cut of Justice League would be coming to HBO Max sometime in 2021, confirming Heroic Hollywood’s report that the project was being planned for release. Fans have clamored to see Snyder’s original vision for the project come to fruition after the director was replaced by Joss Whedon during the film’s production due to a family tragedy. The result of the theatrical cut was what some called a Frankenstein between the two directors.
But just over two and a half years later, the studio finally acknowledged the passionate #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign by fans and is working with Snyder to reassemble the cast and the original post-production crew to finish the original film. To celebrate, fans have taken to social media with videos destroying their copies of the original Justice League Blu-ray. You can check out the tweets below.

Guys, I have a confession to make. I did a video the other day of me throwing away my copy of Justice League. However, my wife convinced me to keep it. Not because we like that version, but just as an artifact so we can tell our kids, we were part of something truly special. pic.twitter.com/zbjVTne5B7

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
