What is the Viral Campaign about?

In an attempt to watch more of Zack Snyder’s, the fans made numerous attempts, however, when they learned that Snyder’s vision isn’t appreciated by the DC Studios, the fans turned to the platform that appreciates the vision of the filmmaker. The fans have launched an online campaign with the hashtag “sellthesnyderversetonetflix” in hopes that the OTT platform would be convinced to restore Zack Snyder’s vision.

Recently, as part of the online campaign, a fake video went viral on Twitter with the caption “Today is the day we trend! Today we make our voices be heard! Today we show @wbd @DCComics and @netflix what we really want! Today we help RESTORE the SNYDERVERSE!!!” The video contained Zack Snyder photoshopped as Man of Steel, along with a message that was identical to the filmmaker. The message was about convincing Warner Bros. and DC Comics to sell Snyder’s universe to Netflix so that the director can continue with his vision of Snyderverse, and make movies like Man of Steel 2, Batman starring Ben Affleck, and many more. 

It is quite impressive to see how much the fans are trying to revive the Snyderverse, even though the idea was ended by James Gunn because it was full of obstacles and problems, that will hinder the success and quality of future DC films. To be fair, the use of hashtags has helped the fans previously as it helped the fans to watch Snyder’s Cut Justice League, so it should not sound surprising if Warner Bros. announces such a deal with Netflix in the future.

Some Viral Tweets from the Campaign

Launched in January 2023, this insane campaign has led to some tweets that went viral overnight. Even though the director has moved on, some fans can’t come to face the reality and are making an effort to revive the DCU they loved.

A fan tweeted that they don’t know the value of something until it’s gone.

Another user wanted this campaign to succeed so that they can more of Ben Affleck and Joe Manganiello

A fan of Snyder’s Cut Justice League said that the film had a lot of mysteries and the fans want Zack Snyder’s vision to unravel all those secrets.

A fan stated that this campaign will continue until Snyder says it’s over.

A fan tweeted how so many things don’t make sense to him but Snyderverse to Netflix would make sense.

Even though James Gunn and Peter Safran’s idea has been taken positively by the DCU, Zack Snyder’s fans must wait as Gunn stated that they have a lot of world-building to do, and later The Flash would go on a multiverse adventure, similar to the Flashpoint stories from the comic books, which gives a possibility that Snyder’s characters might be seen in those stories.

James Gunn’s Response to the Campaign

A fan used the hashtag “sellthesnyderversetonetflix” on James Gunn’s tweet to which he called the campaign the “wackiest hashtag” ever, and said that he has talked to Netflix but the streaming company did not express any interest in the Snyderverse, he continued saying that Zack Snyder hasn’t shown any interest and he is happy with what he is doing.

He continued explaining that he talked with Zack Snyder, and the Man of Steel director contacted him to show his support for the massive decision he took regarding the future of the DCU.

Even though Zack Snyder has refrained from making any public comments about the future of the DC franchise, it can be seen through the response of the Co-CEO of DC Studios, Snyder is on the same page, and backs his decision.
