It was recently announced that Discovery's acquisition of WarnerMedia had been completed. Now, #RestoreTheSnyderVerse is trending on Twitter once again.

Zack Snyder's vision for the DC Universe came to a close with 2021's "Snyder Cut" of Justice League. However, fans have not been pleased about the director stepping away before completing the arc he had envisioned for DC's live-action franchise. This has resulted in the hashtag #RestoreTheSnyderVerse trending on Twitter more than once. Now, the movement has emerged again, apparently due to Discovery's acquisition of WarnerMedia.

It was announced on April 8 that Discovery had officially closed its $43-billion purchase of WarnerMedia, with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav stating: 

"Today's announcement marks an exciting milestone not just for Warner Bros. Discovery but for our shareholders, our distributors, our advertisers, our creative partners and, most importantly, consumers globally. [...] With our collective assets and diversified business model, Warner Bros. Discovery offers the most differentiated and complete portfolio of content across film, television and streaming. We are confident that we can bring more choice to consumers around the globe while fostering creativity and creating value for shareholders. I can’t wait for both teams to come together to make Warner Bros. Discovery the best place for impactful storytelling."

Shortly after the acquisition became official, #RestoreTheSnyderVerse began trending on Twitter. Though the purchase is not the focus of every tweet, it is a prevalent sentiment among a large number of the reactions shared: 

Discovery's Collaborative Nature

As was previously mentioned, fans have started different campaigns for Warner Bros. to continue Zack Snyder's DC Universe over the years. Some have stemmed from anniversaries, and others from WB deeming Zack Snyder's Justice League a success. If this new push is indeed due to Discovery finalizing its purchase of WarnerMedia, said attempts beg the question: What about the $43-billion acquisition makes the Snyder-Verse continuing feasible? 

While it's difficult to pinpoint a specific reason, it could be due Discovery's reported collaborative nature. As The Hollywood Reporter explained: "For former WarnerMedia staff, observers predict a culture change from the AT&T days. While driven and results-focused, [Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav] has a reputation for a less formal and more collaborative management approach than AT&T top executives, which sees him calling or talking to executives quite regularly."

Yet, assuming that's indeed what's driving Snyder's fanbase to advocate for the director's DC Universe to continue, it's not necessarily realistic to expect Discovery's business approach to have such an outcome. With Warner Bros.' Discovery now having one of the most extensive media libraries in the entertainment business, Zaslav's collaborative nature will more than likely be spread across the company's different content offerings, and not just focused on DC. 

The next installment in DC's live-action film franchise, Black Adam, is scheduled to be released on October 21, 2022. It will be followed by Shazam! Fury of the Gods (December 16, 2022) and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (March 17, 2023).

i do want to see another superman movie set in the snyder-verse just to see how they explain the fact that Clark Kent was acknowledged to have died, was given a funeral, and yet ends up back working for the Daily planet at the end of JL.

Also, [frick] ezra miller, he's a convict

@JFerguson - I don't, because those events are really just a relic of Snyder's "'hey, wouldn't it be cool if this happens' without it really making sense" approach.

Rather just see Cavill return for a reboot with Calle's Supergirl and take on Brainiac together.
JFerguson - 4/10/2022, 6:34 PM
@bkmeijer1 - lol yes i was partially being sarcastic with how nonsensical those series of events in his films were. Could have easily been sidestepped, but Snyder's "this looks cool" attitude throws logic out the window.

I wanna see the nonsensical follow-up explanation just to see if Snyder fans believe it to be a genius approach
bkmeijer1 - 4/11/2022, 2:56 AM
@JFerguson - only sensical thing to do in my opinion is just not to do anything with it at all. Or just like in Aquaman with one throwaway line

@bkmeijer1 - Just send Superman to space, with Supergirl helping to protect Earth while he's gone.

We haven't had a movie with Superman's adventures in space even though the comics are loaded with them.

Let him put together a ragtag team (the Authority) to battle Mongul and WarWorld.

Give it to James Gunn.
bkmeijer1 - 4/11/2022, 4:28 PM
@Battabingg - both yes to The Authority and Mongul. Doubt we'll get to see that soon though. If we're getting a space-set movie, it's probably gonna be Green Lantern (which I also don't mind)

So who is next in line when Discovery runs off next year?

Just for the sake of karma, Comcast.

@Reeds2Much - With all of their nature programs they have running with National Geographic, I can see Disney actually biting the bullet and buying Discovery which in turn will be buying Warner

@CaptainFlapjaks - man if that happens that Mickey Mouse Thanos gauntlet will the be true
CaptainFlapjaks - 4/10/2022, 9:45 PM
@Arthorious - and we can have mickey mouse "rata alada" shirts and plushies sold at every disney world.

Again, a relatively small number of accounts spamming a hashtag doesn't equate to popularity.

@BigPhilbowski - Twitter's "trending" tags are weird. Most of them are tweeted by less than 50,000 times and somehow out of the 300+ monthly active users, they're considered "trending". 0.017% is hardly trending.

Snyder is done. He won't be back for at least another 6 years if he even were to because he's busy with other things. They have got to let this go.
VileBlood - 4/10/2022, 3:50 PM
Imagine supporting one of the worst directors ever and being loud and vocal about it. I can't stop laughing at these fools.
DrReedRichards - 4/10/2022, 3:58 PM
@obredaan -

They support this franchise for no other reason than to stick it to their already established (and far superior) opposition, and that man has gone public more than once to voice that very sentiment. He rewards their arrogance and contrarianism, so of course they'd rally behind him no matter what.

Don't blame those clearly ill. Blame their enabler.
CorndogBurglar - 4/11/2022, 6:10 AM
@obredaan - One of the worst directors ever? Come on now. Yes, his DC stuff is bad. But he's made great movies too. 300. Dawn of the Dead. Watchmen. Even Army if the Dead, with all its flaws, was a fun movie.

I would hardly call him a bad director. He just really missed the mark with his DC stuff.
