Fans want justice – the Zack Snyder version of Justice League that is. Youtuber Itzmoe, who is known for her two YouTube channels Itzmoe & 90’s Kids Forever as well as being a cosplayer and filmmaker, will now add activist to her resume as she will lead her fellow cosplayers, as well as any other DC Extended Universe fans, in a peaceful protest outside of Warner Bros. in Burbank. Their goal: to convince the studio to release a Zack Snyder version of Justice League, which tanked at the box office along with critics and many fans.
In a tweet (that you can see below) the protest, which takes place this Saturday January 6, plans to take a photo in front of Warner Bros. Burbank L.A with a “#ReleaseTheSnyderCut” sign while wearing Zack Snyder/DC shirts and costumes to demonstrate their support for the director.
L.A. #ZackSnyder FANS! Come take a photo w/ us in front of Warner Bros. holding a #ReleaseTheSnyderCut sign supporting Zack's #JusticeLeague cut THIS SATURDAY at 11am! RSVP HERE: https://t.co/6RSKULvgyg

The influencer hopes that fans will take to social media to share pics in support of getting what she calls “the real Justice League movie” released. Here is what her original post had to say:
“Join me (ITZMOE on YouTube) and other Snyder fans as we take a photo in front of Warner Bros. with a #ReleaseTheSnyderCut sign while wearing our Zack Snyder shirts/ DC shirts, & costumes to (peacefully) show our support for the release of a Snyder cut of Justice League! After we take the photo, we will all share it on ALL of our social media so hopefully it will spread and get it to Zack himself so he can see it, like he saw the “Thank You Zack Snyder” video I made!
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY SIGNS. I will have the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut sign and that is the ONLY sign that we want in the photo so the focus will be on that, so instead of bringing a sign, just wear any shirts you have supporting Zack, DC, or Justice League cosplay you may have.
**ABSOLUTELY NO SHIRTS/ SIGNS INSULTING WB/ JOSS/ ETC. WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE PHOTO!*** We want to show support for Zack Snyder, so we want to focus on our support and love for him and his work, NOT dissing others, so DO NOT bring shirts/ signs insulting others or you won’t be allowed in the photo. We don’t want to embarrass Zack and give Zack Snyder fans a bad name. We want to show him how much we appreciate him and make this a photo that he would be happy to share. PLEASE share this around everywhere so we can have a large group in the photo supporting Zack and his JL cut!!!”
It’s important to note that while there have been some images and descriptions of deleted scenes, there is no concrete evidence that a Snyder cut of Justice League actually exists. The director left the film early last year due to a family tragedy that has been well-documented. It’s also believed that many of Snyder’s CGI scenes that did not make the released cut would require extensive post-production work. Finally, while there is obviously a large base of support for the director there is no proof that his version would be any less divisive than Man of Steel or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Releasing a Snyder cut could also run the risk of insulting Joss Whedon, who came aboard to help the film meet its release date.
All of that said, it’s important for Warner Bros execs (especially chairman Kevin Tsujihara) to realize that fans are going to become vocal about what is released and they have a real love for the characters in the DC universe and expect to see them treated as well as Marvel characters.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now playing in theaters.
