Warner Bros. has now teased a lot of its forthcoming movies and projects at the WB Discovery Upfront event. However, with no projects related to Zack Snyder, fans of the former DCEU franchise got the fuel to resume the #RestoretheSnyderVerse campaign ahead.
Fans have criticized the WB Production house all over social media for their Warner Bros. presentation, calling for the continuance of the Justice League movie series by Zack Snyder, or attention to the David Ayer’s cut of Suicide Squad (2016). While declared by some that they would persist in an effort to bring WB’s attention to the two, others have claimed they are done with Warner Bros. projects already.
Here are some of the tweets in support of the Snydeverse:

#RestoreTheSnyderVerse trending with 18k tweets.
Meanwhile, I didn't see #WBDUpfront trend at all. It would have if they had given any Snyderverse or Ayer Cut news.
Still, I have faith good things are coming in time. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/GEeXTIFLM1

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut Came In 2021
Almost five years after the cinematic release of 2016’s Justice League, Zack Snyder released his final cut of the movie on the HBO Max. This was followed by years of fan campaigning that called on the WB network to give Zack Snyder the required time and budget to finish his version, which many fans believe would eventually surpass the success of Joss Whedon’s 2016 version.
After a lot of silence on this over years, Warner Bros. had announced that it would give Zack Snyder a budget to end the work on his Justice League cut, which required VFX work to be done. The film, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, featured a somewhat new subplot, storylines, and many new characters, which also included actor Jared Leto’s return as the Joker. The film had a huge runtime of around 4 hours and was forced to cut a few major characters, like Green Lantern, portrayed by actor Wayne T. Carr.
Will see Ayer’s Suicide Squad Cut Too?
The movement was replaced immediately after the Snyder Cut release, thanks to the #RestoretheSnyderverse movement, which calls for Warner Bros. to have Snyder return as the head of its growing DCEU. The director held the position until 2016 when he departed from Justice League due to a family tragedy.
Apart from this, many DC fans are also calling for the release of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad cut which has gone on to become a perfect example of the negative impact of too much studio interference.
