It’s been revealed that the Snyder Cut – aka Zack Snyder’s Justice League – has crossed over 250 million views on Migu Video in China.
Migu Video is a Chinese streaming platform, and it’s one of the countries biggest and most popular.
The Snyder Cut was made available on Migu Video just 5 days ago, and it’s already beaten Avengers: Endgame’s numbers on the platform.
That is utterly insane and it goes to show how big the appetite for Zack Snyder’s Justice League was over in China.
Warner Bros. Pictures opted not to release the movie in Chinese cinemas, even though Snyder wanted them to.
Snyder saw the popularity of the SnyderVerse over in China and knew how well the movie would do over there.
Now, it isn’t easy to get a movie released in China these days, and Warner Bros. Pictures opted to release the likes of Godzilla Vs. Kong and Mortal Kombat in China instead.
The Snyder Cut’s impressive numbers on Chinese streaming platforms such as Migu Video, Tencent Video and BiliBili is a clear indication of how much interest there is in the SnyderVerse over in China.
The Snyder Cut’s streaming numbers in China are very impressive
Does this mean that the SnyderVerse could end up being restored?
Well, it all depends on who’s pulling the strings over at Warner Bros. Pictures.
With the news that Toby Emmerich might be about to leave the company, a new CEO could step in and decide that the SnyderVerse should continue.
AT&T could also step in and force the SnyderVerse to carry on over on HBO Max, which would make a lot of sense.
As far as the current brass at Warner Bros. is concerned, the SnyderVerse is dead.
However, that doesn’t mean things can’t change in the future.
We’ll have to wait and see.
At least we now know for sure that Chinese audiences love the Snyder Cut.
