A new critics TV spot for Zack Snyder’s Justice League highlights the good things that have been said about the movie, while the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse movement continues to gain traction on social media.
With an approval rating of 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s a couple of percentage points short of being "Certified Fresh," but as this 30-second video proves, some big outlets have found plenty of nice things to say about the Snyder Cut (keep your eyes peeled, and you’ll spot a quote from right here on ComicBookMovie.com).
As we reported this morning, #RestoreTheSnyderVerse was trending worldwide last night with over 1.01 million Tweets. The social media giant highlighted the hashtag by saying, "Fans are campaigning for the SnyderVerse to be completed by Justice League director Zack Snyder, allowing him to finish his DC Extended Universe plan."
Warner Bros. tried its best to ignore the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign, and we all know how that went. Whether WarnerMedia will ever give the filmmaker an opportunity to finish his vision will likely depend on a number of factors, including how much revenue the company earned from putting this version of Justice League on its streaming service.
For now, though, #RestoreTheSnyderVerse is clearly going nowhere. Perhaps a comic book sequel would please fans? Here’s what the director told us about that when we spoke to him.

10. Superman Returns
After reuniting with Lois and Martha at the farm, Clark points out he was brought back for a reason and has no choice but to once again become Superman.
Heading to the Kryptonian ship in the middle of Metropolis, Kal-El dons his black costume and hears the voices of both his fathers before taking flight. With that, Hans Zimmer’s Superman score kicks in for a throwback to Man of Steel which is a real "stand up and punch the air" moment.
Charging himself in front of the sun, Superman stretches out his arms in an almost Biblical moment.
This is peak Snyder, and perhaps not a scene which will resonate with everyone. However, it’s a striking piece of imagery, and one which plays into the mythological side of the character.
