While few fans are likely to be celebrating the fourth anniversary of the 2017 Justice League, Zack Snyder fans are celebrating their “Snyderversary.” On this day, four years ago, the groundbreaking #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement began on Twitter.
It’s the anniversary of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement. Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg in Justice League, also took to Twitter to wish fans a “Happy Snyderversary!”

Zack Snyder shared this photo on Vero to mark the “Snyderversary.” If you are wondering about the 279 number on “clapboard”, Let me tell you there are about 270 scenes in Zack Snyder’s self-directed DCEU films. If the exact number is 278, scene 279 would be the first in a fourth film.
It doesn’t mean the #RestoretheSnyderverse campaign is over; the fight is still ongoing. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. will not be releasing the planned Justice League trilogy. A week after the official release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse hashtag has exceeded over 1 million tweets.
While #ReleaseTheSnyderCut became one of the most popular hashtags among DC fans, hundreds of people filed an online petition on Change.org. Warner Bros. eventually listened to their appeals, and the Snyder Cut was formally unveiled on May 20, 2020, a victory for all DC fans.
Warner Bros. ultimately allowed the release of Snyder’s long-awaited director’s cut, thanks to years of dedicated fan efforts. Zack Snyder’s Justice League, a four-hour epic that reintroduces many characters and stories that were omitted from the theatrical cut, debuted on HBO Max earlier this year. ZSJL has shatter all streaming records within the release.
The #RestoreTheSnyderVerse campaign demonstrates that DCEU supporters’ passion hasn’t faded and isn’t likely to do so any time soon. Time will tell whether Warner Bros. will reconsider and offer them what they so desperately need. Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, is now available to watch on HBO Max.
