According to Jim Lee, Creative Director and Publisher of DC, Warner Bros. has no plans for Zack Snyder or the SnyderVerse. Lee was in attendance for Comic-Con 2022, sitting on a panel when a fan in the audience asked him a question regarding director Zack Snyder. The prolific comic book creator shared his joy at being back at San Diego Comic-Con after two years, and how he’s been involved in the creation of many Warner Bros. DC Feature Films. However, the loyal SynderVerse regime might be disappointed to learn that none of these in-development projects will come from Snyder.
“You know what’s amazing is that we spent two years in lockdown, and here we are back at a convention, celebrating the art form, feeling great,” Jim Lee said. “I work on the projects in development. I think the SnyderCut was Zack’s vision realized and it was a really satisfying story told, but there are no work plans on that material. I was happy to help contribute pitch for the other stuff, and it was fun to see this stuff come out because i did it years ago i actually thought it got deleted, but they had kept it in storage.

A report a few days ago said Zack Snyder’s Justice League support came from an army of bots. According to the report (via rolling stone), at least 13% of the accounts that were part of the Snyder Cut online conversation were fake. In contrast, the average number of fake accounts typically found in any trending topic is around three to five percent and Twitter’s own public findings estimate that the number of daily active accounts on the site that are “fake or spam” is less than five percent. . This means that while there are indeed a large number of genuine Snyder fans on the social media platform, those fans are amplified by a disproportionately large number of fake accounts or bots.
“After researching conversations online about the Snyder Cut of the Justice Leaguein particular the hashtags ‘ReleaseTheSnyderCut’ and ‘RestoreTheSnyderVerse’ on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, [the analysts] detected an increase in negative activity created by both real and fake perpetrators,” the report concludes. “An identified community consisted of real and fake authors who were spreading negative content on WarnerMedia for not restoring the ‘SnyderVerse.’ Additionally, three top leaders were identified among authors scanned on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – one leader on each platform. These leaders have received the most engagement and have large followings, giving them the ability to influence public opinion.”
