Zack Snyder fans brought the “Release the Snyder” cut movement right to Snyder himself during an event with the director. VERO sponsored The Director’s Cut event, referred to by fans as SnyderCon, at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California.
About the SnyderCon Event
The event hosted screenings of all of Zack Snyder’s director’s cuts, including Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During the question and answer portion of the event, a fan asked Snyder about his director’s cuts.

After the questions, another fan shouted: “Release the Snyder cut.”
Snyder smiled at this. You can watch the moment above.
About Synder and his relations with Warner Bros.
Snyder directed the DC Extended Universe movies Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, but those were only the first three parts of his planned five-act DC Universe story. That vision was cut short when Warner Bros. replaced Snyder with Joss Whedon to direct the film’s reshoots.
Snyder has continued to look back on the project though, releasing storyboard art work and even trolling Warner Bros. on Thanksgiving. Fans have rallied in support of Snyder with the “Release the Snyder Cut” campaign, an effort to see Snyder’s version of the movie finished and released in a similar fashion to the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice: Ultimate Edition. Snyder previously offered his thanks for the extreme measures some of those fans have gone to in their efforts.
Post Ben Affleck’s exit as Batman, Snyder posted a farewell to social media
Following Ben Affleck’s exit as Batman, Snyder posted a farewell to social media that read, “The was a time above…” Snyder writes, “a time before…there were perfect things…diamond absolutes. But things fail…things on earth. And what falls…is fallen. IN the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie…Best Batman ever. Thank you my friend for blessing me with that f***ing glorious chin and an amazing hart.”
