The calls for Snyder Cut have ramped back up in recent months, and fans want to see what can be with Justice League. The whole community around the movement has put all their energy towards another worthy cause. After Zack Snyder’s daughter’s tragic demise to suicide, the Snyder Cut community has decided to raise an amount of $100,000 for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The director wanted to raise awareness after that personal tragedy. His work inspired many people, and these people made sure they could help with that mission.
The last two years have seen the community build up a grassroots approach to raising the money. Selling T-shirts featuring fan art caught the attention of Snyder himself. It was just a matter of time before other people wanted to chip in for such a good cause. “Project Comic-Con” was the latest effort to put the campaigns out there where people can see and help out. Those appearances in California and New York raised over $20,000 on their own with T-shirt sales and GoFundMe campaigns combined.
Impact of #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement:
The movement has created a website for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It begins like this:
While the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement may appear to be focused mainly on the aim of releasing Zack Snyder’s original “Justice League” film, the focus of the fan community has always been about celebrating and acknowledging the power and impact of Zack’s filmography. Throughout the journey, each of us has come across countless other fans who’ve spoken about how Zack’s works have influenced us in positive ways. Folks who have felt marginalized have found revelation through the humanization of the larger-than-life heroes depicted on screen. While the others have empowered to appreciate their sense of self-worth.
As the movement has done a lot in doing something like this to raise money is plain enjoyable. They are moving a personal tragedy into something that lifts the spirits of not just the Snyder family but also of others struggling with the loss of a loved one. The cut of the Justice League may never see the light of the day, but all the people can be proud of #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement.
