A Restore the SnyderVerse banner is flying over Hollywood for the Oscars 2022.
The campaign calls for a continuation of the SnyderVerse, AKA the sequels to Zack Snyder’s Justice League, along with other projects like Ben Affleck’s scrapped Batman movie.
Per a Twitter thread from @SamuEl_KentMan (opens in new tab), the banner has already soared over the Warner Bros. lot, the Hollywood sign, and made it to the Dolby Theatre, the venue for this year’s Academy Awards. According to the thread, over half of the money from the fundraiser to launch the plane is going to Project Hope in aid of Ukraine, and to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The Snyder Cut ended up taking home an award at the ceremony – the newly created Oscars Cheer Moment, which highlighted the Flash turning back time in the fight to save the world. Snyder’s Netflix movie Army of the Dead also ended up winning the Fan Favorite award. Both were voted for by fans online, rather than Academy voters, and neither saw Snyder actually given a gold statuette.
So far, there’s been no official word on a continuation of the SnyderVerse, and Warner Bros. boss Ann Sarnoff has previously poured water over hopes for more. Who knows if the banner will change any minds…
The DCEU, meanwhile, continues with DC League of Superpets this July 29, which boasts Keanu Reeves, Dwayne Johnson, and John Krasinski among its star-studded voice cast. After that, Black Adam is set to change the hierarchy of power in the DC universe on October 29.
