Angry nerds start petition to fire Zack Snyder from future DC movies

0

Oh, you silly dorks

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is divisive, garnering harsh reviews (e.g., our negative take on the film) as well as splitting fan reaction. Still, Zack Snyder's film made a lot of money in its opening weekend. It's well on its way to $800 million, a number that many analysts estimate the movie has to make just to break even. (Let that amount sink in.)

Warner Bros is probably pretty happy, all things considered. Better than pants-s**tingly mortified. Still, a number of DC Comics fans aren't pleased with their sulking Superman or their psycho-killer Batman. Some fans have started a change.org petition to fire Zack Snyder from future DC Comics movies. Part of the petition reads:

Even if you loved Man of Steel and BvS. [sic] There has to come a time when WB and DC want someone at the helm that can create something that WON'T divide people in such a way.

As of this writing, there are more than 11,000 signers.

DO YOU SIGN MEANINGLESS INTERNET PETITIONS?

YOU WILL!

This reminds me of that stupid Star Wars Episode IX petition from January.

Look, I thought Batman v Superman was an angsty dumpster fire full of meatheads and murder, but in the end, is a petition really necessary? So a director who makes movies I don't like made a movie that I don't like--maybe I'll just skip some of those DC movies that come out in the future. I won't feel bad about it either.

Maybe I'm just not that invested in a rushed comic book cinematic universe, or maybe I like DC Comics characters, but am okay with not consuming them in their current iterations. (This applies to whatever the hell DC is doing on the comics end as well.) A major corporation doesn't want my money? Great. I'm gonna buy a bagel.

So what do you think abut this petition?
