In November, just days after the release of Justice League into theaters, a petition was launched on Change.org for the release of Zack Snyder’s original cut of Justice League on home media, complete with Junkie XL’s original score.
Those who signed that petition, all 162,153 of them, were given false hope recently when an update was posted to the petition’s page. The update was a single word: “Victory!”
The update sent some excitement through the portion of fandom calling for this director’s cut, many of whom wondered if the fan who started the petition had received word from Warner Bros. that its would indeed release Snyder's cut of the film, which would have been an unprecedented victory for a petition such as this.
It turns out that’s not the case. Members of the fan community on Reddit have found that the Change.org petition site was hacked and the update comment left by a hacker having some fun trolling fans.
Here's a portion of the petition's 2400 word summary:
The DC Extended Universe is based on DC comics, a brand of comic books that writes superheroes, villains and other characters from different backgrounds with different backstories and motivations, that are relatable to the reader with themes that mirror the real world, for example, Man of Steel was the first entry in the the DC Extended Universe, the film revolved around an alien trying to find his place in the world, while dealing with his past, alien origins, superhuman abilities and a plot that revolved around first contact with an alien civilization, while the sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revolved around the existence of an alien and his purpose in the world, how humanity reacted to him, how they were divided and ultimately united, because ofnhim, the different philosophies, ideologies and motivations of a man coming to gripes with his past, the reality of aliens living amongst humans and the realization that such alien could be dangerous, a man with a childhood trauma, who wants to get rid of abusive figures and who realizes that power is not innocent and the perception of humans towards the alien in question. Justice League is the culmination of the alien's story and the beginning of a new chapter in the DC Extended Universe. Fans have been waiting for years, while others have waited decades for the film to finally arrive on the silver screen. The 2hr runtime is disrespectful towards Zack Snyder's vision and towards the fans who have waited for more than a year to see the alien's story come to an end.”
Fans will have to continue to hold out hope that Warner Bros. will hear their cry and agree to their demands.
