Justice League: Release The Snyder Cut Movement Gets An Unlikely Ally

We’re well over two years from the release of Justice League, and like many, I’m still thinking over what could have been. What if Warner Bros. had actually had the guts to stick with Zack Snyder’s vision? Would it have made Man of Steel and Batman v Superman retroactively more impactful or would it have just continued the negative trajectory of the franchise as a whole? Given that Justice League continued that negative trajectory anyway, it’s no wonder that Release the Snyder Cut has gone on to be such a big movement.

Passionate fans have spent the better part of the past few years to try and get Zack Snyder’s 214-minute cut released to the masses. While it’s difficult to say whether or not they’ll truly be successful (like any good skeptic, I have my doubts), they’ve undoubtedly made their mark. In addition to being one of the better-known fan movements out there, they’ve also donated to charities and gained the support of Zack Snyder himself, among many other big names.

Now, you can count another unusual supporter to the mix. Last December, one Snyder cut account asked Subway how many retweets they’d need to for them to donate 10,000 sandwiches for the hungry. Subway was quick to jump on it, ultimately locking down 15,000 sandwiches over the holiday season.

Now, on February 14, Zack Snyder called out Subway (because 214…214 minutes), saying fans have been asking what his own Subway sandwich would be. Subway replied appropriately.

The whole deal wasn’t quite over yet. What follows is a slightly annoying addendum to the mostly-wholesome story. One fan went on to tweet out whether or not Joss Whedon, the man who took over directing Justice League, would be allowed in a Subway. Subway themselves diffused the situation with a joke.

It’s all been in good fun. A part of me hopes this eventually does lead to something, but given the fact that millions would likely be needed to actually fix up the VFX for the cut, I just don’t see it happening. that being said, I’m all for the good the movement has done, but can just do without the mild toxicity that it can bring — like even joking about banning Joss Whedon from a restaurant. Yes, it’s a joke, I’m sure someone out there isn’t joking about it.
