Wikipedia May Delete Page For Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Cut

Justice League Zack Snyder Comic-Con Fabian Wagner

Wikipedia moderators are debating the need for a page dedicated to the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League.

Following the theatrical release of Justice League, fans began petitioning Warner Bros. to release the Zack Snyder Cut of the film and the calls continue to this day, even as the film inches toward its two year anniversary. Details on Zack Snyder’s original plans for Justice League, the changes made after Joss Whedon oversaw extensive reshoots, and the “Release the Snyder cut” campaign are currently the subject of a single Wikipedia page, but two moderators are currently debating whether or not there is a need for such an entry.

Wikipedia moderator Gargus-SCP argues the page on the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League is unnecessary, as it is already covered on the main page for the film, and even accuses page creator Fezmar9 of editorial bias:

“The page goes into such excessive detail on every tiny aspect of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and its process in reaching theaters that it seems unlikely to interest or meaningfully inform anyone except dedicated fans of the director’s work who are heavily invested in seeing the ‘Snyder Cut’ released. In fact, it also seems unlikely this subject rises to the standards of notability for such a minutely detailed article, and largely exists so it can be shared in celebration that Wikipedia thinks the Snyder Cut notable enough to deserve such a lengthy article. Smacks of fan bias at every turn.”

Fezmar9 counters the accusation of bias by noting that they included criticism of the “Release the Snyder Cut” movement and argues it would be easier to adjust the language if there is indeed partiality rather than delete the whole page:

Editor bias is a pretty bold claim. What bias do I have and what evidence do you have that I have one? I thought it was an interesting topic and decided to make an article about it. I felt I neutrally added information whether it was positive or negative. Both the ‘The Snyder Cut’ (2016–2017)” and ‘#ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement’ sections include criticism paragraphs. If I was biased toward the subject, wouldn’t I omit that information? And if you feel it contains any biases, wouldn’t it be easier to just adjust the language you feel is biased than delete the whole article? I also feel the subject easily meets the WP:GNG. The article in its current state has 134 sources with TONS more out there, so the coverage is significant. The sources provided were also present on Justice League (film) which passed a GA nom so I assume they’re considered reliable. None of the sources are first-party, so they’re all independent of Warner, DC and Snyder. I see no validity to your nomination.

As of now, no action has been taken on the Wikipedia page dedicated to the Zack Snyder Cut of 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, Justice League 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.

Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
