WarnerMedia Reacts to #SnyderVerse Fan Demands & Threats: 'Behavior Is Reprehensible'

WarnerMedia is not giving in to fan demands.

Following the release of Zack Snyder‘s Justice League cut on HBO Max, fans have been leading social media campaigns for Warner Bros. to release the David Ayer director’s cut of 2016′s Suicide Squad with #ReleaseTheAyerCut, as well as demanding Zack direct his own version of the comics with #RestoreTheSnyderVerse.

Execs are standing up to the social media campaign in a new interview with Variety after fans began harassing and even threatening the studio.

“We’re not tolerating any of that. That behavior is reprehensible no matter what franchise you’re talking about or what business you’re talking about. It’s completely unacceptable. I’m very disappointed in the fans that have chosen to go to that negative place with regard to DC, with regard to some of our executives,” WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said.

“It’s just disappointing because we want this to be a safe place to be. We want DC to be a fandom that feels safe and inclusive. We want people to be able to speak up for the things they love, but we don’t want it to be a culture of canceling things that any small faction isn’t happy with. We are not about that. We are about positivity and celebration.”

She also shot down rumors of future projects for a Justice League trilogy with Zack Snyder, saying she’s “very thankful for his many contributions to DC,” but the release of his cut marks “the completion” of the director’s DC films.

“We’re very happy we’ve done this, but we’re very excited about the plans we have for all the multi-dimensional DC characters that are being developed right now.”

She added there are no plans to develop the demanded Suicide Squad cut.

“We wanted to give Zack the opportunity to complete his vision in a four-hour movie, which is impossible to do in theaters. We’re happy that we have HBO Max to let the rope out as it were and allow the fans to see all four hours of Zack’s vision,” she went on to say.

As it turns out, these actors shot their Justice League scenes separately.
