Fans Start Petition to Get Zack Snyder Kicked Out of DC Cinematic Universe
Following the critical response to Batman v. Superman, some fans grew defensive and grew angry at those who spoke negatively about the film. Others took a completely different route: starting a petition to get director Zack Snyder fired.
There are a lot of fan petitions for a lot of dumb things. In January there was one to get Colin Trevorrow fired as the director of Star Wars: Episode 9. Then there was the one trying to get Deadpool to host SNL. Now comes the latest as a group of disappointed comic book fans have taken their voices online in an effort to get Snyder out of the DC Cinematic Universe.
Currently the petition has 6,585 supporters, which is probably not going to be enough to sway Warner Bros. considering the film has made over $465 million so far.
They caution that their petition is not just for people who hated Batman v. Superman, it’s also for people who loved Batman v. Superman!
Even if you loved Man of Steel and BvS. There has to come a time when WB and DC want someone at the helm that can create something that WON’T divide people in such a way.
Yes, we need to bring the people together… by firing this one guy. “Zack Snyder is just not the guy that should be in charge of the biggest and most important films in the franchise.” The petition offers up no suggestions on who Warner Bros. should hire to replace Snyder, especially with an April 11 start date for Justice League looming. They have, however, penned a letter that they’ve prepared to send to Warner Bros. with the collected digital signatures. That letter, in its entirety: “Boot Zack Snyder off of Justice League.”
