It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s, uh…#ReleasetheSnyderCut in the sky.
So read a sky banner flying high over San Diego Comic-Con on Friday morning. “WB #ReleasetheSnyderCut of Justice League,” the ad read, trailing behind a small plane that circled above the San Diego Convention Center.
Long a rallying cry for fans disappointed in the theatrical release of 2017’s Justice League film, the so-called Snyder Cut is the wished-for extended cut of the film from director Zack Snyder.
Justin Jaye, owner of San Diego’s FlySigns, tells The Hollywood Reporter that the banner was commissioned by a private citizen to fly over the convention center for two hours Friday. The rate for the ad was $1,170.
Since the debut of the film, which grossed a disappointing $657 million worldwide, the “Snyder Cut” refrain has only grown louder among a certain subset of DC Comics fans on social media.
Snyder exited the project ahead of its Nov. 2017 debut, with Avengers director Joss Whedon taking over helming duties.
Slightly better shot (please appreciate what taking this picture did to my eyeballs)
