When is #SnyderCut not necessarily cutting “Snyder”
Still, that’s nothing a good hashtag won’t solve, so when Car posted a photo of himself this week from the photos – including a photo of himself set up to wear the Green Lantern suit on it – with the sign for pounds – a powerful call #RestoreTheSnyderVerse, the director himself was very happy to join the chorus. In particular, he posted his own photo (of Vero) in the photos, showing Carr standing in a visible alley so he could be socially remotely shielded in every part of space that Stewart patrolled in Snyder’s vision of the scene.
As with essentially everything Snyder has been doing lately, there are some interesting currents of fan obsession that go through this fun a little bit back and forth. Not for nothing did Carr publish his photo as soon as Finn Whitrock was thrown in Green lantern show – or after social media started calling for the series to use Stewart, a rare prominent black superhero in the DC canon and fondly remembered by his own DCAU Justice League, instead of the boisterous Guy Gardner. It’s not entirely clear what the idea #RestoreTheSnyderVerse implies, even – probably a second Justice League hinted at by the plot elements of the scale included in Snyder’s first version? But people want it restored, certainly with such zeal, that they are willing to press shift-3 on their keyboards to achieve it.
