Dealing a crushing blow to the validity of the RestoreTheSynderVerse movement and winning the Flash an Oscar for “the happiest moment” rolling stone released a high-profile report this morning detailing how fake accounts supported the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign that wrecked social media years ago and left us stranded. even longer version Justice League.
As hard as it is to believe, a significant portion of the Snyder Cut champions were bots or fake accounts, some of which, according to rolling stoneSnyder helped to go crazy between the first issue Justice League until Snyder’s version was released on HBO Max. Two reports commissioned by WarnerMedia found that “at least 13 percent of the accounts that engaged in the Snyder Cut conversation were found to be fake.” The norm on Twitter is about three to five percent, so, according to the publication, “real stans have been boosted by a disproportionate number of fake accounts.”
One report concluded:
After studying online conversations about the Snyder version Justice Leaguerelease, in particular the hashtags “ReleaseTheSnyderCut” and “RestoreTheSnyderVerse” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, [the analysts] an increase in negative activity created by both real and fake authors was revealed. One identified community consisted of real and fake creators who spread negative content about WarnerMedia for not restoring “SnyderVerse”. In addition, among the creators scanned on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, three top leaders were identified, with one leader per platform. These leaders have received the most participation and have many followers, which gives them the opportunity to influence public opinion.
But the report is even more damning for Snyder, who rolling stone almost accuses him of actively manipulating the media and using his fans as a weapon against studio executives and journalists. According to one source, “Zack looked like Lex Luthor wreaking havoc.” After 2019, when the popularity surrounding the Snyder Cut movement led to the standard series of death threats and memes depicting beheaded Warner Bros. executives being sent to the families of said executives, Snyder has continued to tap into his fan base. In one instance, he allegedly warned a reporter who had published an article about Flash In the casting announcement, he disagreed that his fans are “beautiful, nice, rather rude”.
According to the report, much of Snyder’s anger towards Warner Bros. in connection with the release Justice League Zack Snyder was above the producers’ credit originally given to Geoff Johns and John Berg. Cyborg actor Ray Fisher previously accused Jones and Berg of helping director Joss Whedon. who Fischer claimed was abusive on set Justice League. Snyder wanted their names removed from Snyder’s version, and after it took too long, he told the executive, “Jeff and John are taking too long to remove their names from my version. Now I will destroy them on social media.”
The article also more or less accuses Snyder of paying for Snyder Cut promotional stunts such as this one. Times Square advertising (the article says they can cost upwards of $50,000 a day) and plane flying over Comic Con advertises Cinder’s version. Snyder denied this and most of the claims made in the article. But, as one source put it, these stunts were “just another staged rambling by Zach.”
The entire report is a breathtaking behind-the-scenes look at a film that just shouldn’t be, a film that the studio deemed a “total flop” when the original cut was shown in 2017. But one quote from an anonymous insider in the article explains why: “$73 million while people were losing their jobs at the studio because of the director’s cut of a film that has already lost hundreds of millions.”
