‘Justice League’: Fans Raise Over $11,000 To Promote The Zack Snyder Cut At Comic-Con

Justice League Zack Snyder Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Ben Affleck Batman DarkseidFans of the DC Extended Universe and director Zack Snyder have taken a brand new step in their campaign to convince Warner Bros. to release the Zack Snyder director’s cut of Justice League. A Go Fund Me campaign has now raised over $11,000 to promote the desired release of the film at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The theatrical cut of Justice League remains a point of contention for many fans of the DC Extended Universe. While some enjoyed Justice League and its means to course-correct the franchise into more lighthearted fare, many have expressed dislike for the film for not following through on the original vision that director Zack Snyder had in mind before Warner Bros. decided to change the trajectory of the franchise as well as the director’s departure from the project following a personal family tragedy.

Nearly two years after Justice League hit theaters, many fans have campaigned on social media for Warner Bros. to release the original cut of the film as approved by Zack Snyder. Thus, the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut was born and became a popular rallying cry from fans eager to see the Zack Snyder version of the film that would likely be different from the theatrical edition. Fifty percent all funds raised by the aforementioned Go Fund Me are being donated to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and if Warner Bros. announces they will release the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League before San Diego Comic-Con 2019, 100% of funds will be donated instead.

Would you like to see the  Zack Snyder version of Justice League to be released in the near future? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the DC Extended Universe.

Here is a plot synopsis for 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.

Justice League is now available to own on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Digital HD.

After Justice LeagueAquaman and Shazam! followed. The DCEU continues next year with Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters on October 4, 2019.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.

    Fantastic news, more is being done for the release of the REAL Justice League movie by Snyder than it was for the release of the Donner Cut for Superman 2 and all it took for that to get released was Letters, Phone Calls and leaked footage of Jor el. #RELEASETHESNYDERCUT

    For the snydercut ❤💗

    Of course everybody would be onboard with the release of orginal justice league and yes there going to be haters as always but one thing I can be sure of is it’ll earn money , because there’s no possibility it can be worse than theatrical cut, BvS ultimate edition Blu-ray/DVDs had record sales ayay reports and reviews stormed the internet citing it’s slightly better than theatrical cut. I think those sales alone bright in over 78 million US dollars. Maybe they can announce it at sdcc 2019 and release a trailer and release the movie in wonderwoman release slot. But the problem is there’s only little time and Zack is currently working on the Netflix movie. It’s doubtful he can be onboard to finish justice league in that timeframe.We have to think about the technical feasibility too. Zack might’ve said it’s complete but still will require his final touches . So putting all hopes into hoping the movie will be released in SDCC 19 is moot. Let’s hope they announce in officially in sdcc 2019 and release sometime in 2020 or whenever technically feasible.
