Fans of Zack Snyder’s Snyderverse films in the DCEU have now managed to get #RestoreTheSnyderVerse trending on Twitter. This comes after a big push from the fans to get the hashtag trending on the social media platform, and it worked.
So, why did the fans want to get #RestoreTheSnyderVerse trending on Twitter? It comes after The New York Times posted an article in which they interviewed DC Films’ acting head. In this article, it was also mentioned that executives over at Warner Bros. thought that Zack Snyder’s ‘snyderverse’ was going down a “cul de sac”. Here’s what was said in The New York Times’ article:
At least for now, Mr. Snyder is not part of the new DC Films blueprint, with studio executives describing his HBO Max project as a storytelling cul-de-sac — a street that leads nowhere.
So, people then read this article and saw what Warner Bros. executives were saying and thinking, and they took it upon themselves to get the hashtag #RestoreTheSnyderVerse trending on Twitter. And they succeeded, which is just great to see.
#RestoreTheSnyderVerse is now trending on Twitter and it doesn’t look like it’ll slow down any time soon

So, this is very good news for the fans of Zack Snyder’s SnyderVerse, and not great news for those Warner Bros. executives. It seems like there really is an appetite out there for more of Zack Snyder’s DC Comics movies, yet the executives seem unwilling to let Snyder just go ahead with making them.
It’s a seriously strange time over at WB, and I think the problem lies with the people at the top. This comes after Ray Fisher called Walter Hamada out as “the most dangerous kind of enabler” in a recent tweet. That was a reaction to The New York Times article, which I do not believe has done Walter nor WB any favours.
