Snyder has teased the Full Circle event recently by sharing the video message of Darkseid (the iconic leader of Apokolips and a major antagonist of Snyder’s Justice League). The message brief message simply said “April 29 and 30, 2019. Save the Date.” Screenings will consist of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice on April 28 and 29 respectively, which will show at the ArtCenter in Pasadena, California.

Since James Gunn and Peter Safran became co-CEOs of DC Studios in November 2022, announcing a widespread relaunch of the rebranded DC Universe beginning in January 2023, Snyder fans have campaigned for Warner Bros. Discovery to sell the SnyderVerse rights to Netflix. This is the home of Snyder’s Army of the Dead, and the upcoming Rebel Moon. Gunn has since responded to the movement, calling #SellTheSnyderverseToNetflix the “wackiest hashtag ever.”
Snyder Fans Attack James Gunn
Many Snyder fans have continued to attack Gunn in recent days, scolding the DC Studios boss for the timing of his announcement that he was the director of Superman: Legacy that he tweeted on Twitter on the same day as Snyder’s Darkseid video. My brother Matt told me that he started to cry when he saw the day of release. I asked why. I asked him why. He replied, “Dude, it is Dad’s birthday.” I didn’t know,” Gunn captioned the post. Gunn also discussed the influence of his father on his career and his personal life. “I lost my Dad almost three years ago. He was my best friend. He was not understanding of me as an infant, but he supported my love for comics and my love of film and I couldn’t have made this movie now without him.”

Even though some online groups pit filmmakers against one another, Gunn assures that he and Snyder are on good terms. In February, Gunn revealed that Snyder had “contacted me to express his approval of my choices. He’s a wonderful person.” After revealing that Warner Bros. had contacted him in November 2022, he was dismissed. However, Discovery and DC Studios haven’t yet approached Snyder about his return to DC, Snyder expressed his love for Gunn and Safran. He stated, “I’m just wishing they all the best and hoping that they make some cool films.”
Snyder fans can look forward to the Full Circle event which will be held from April 28 to 30.
