Damn! There are some fans out there that hated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice so much that they started a petition to get Zack Snyder booted as the director of Justice League. Sorry guys, it ain't gonna happen. Even though the movie wasn't a critical success, it exploded at the box office! So far the film has made over $468.5 million dollars! That's what the studio cares about. Snyder is able to bring them those big numbers, so why in the world would they fire him?! On top of that, the studio loves the guy!
The petition was started by Bryan Cruz on Change.org and this is what it says:
Zack Snyder is not the person to bring the Justice League to the big screen. He's had two chances now to adapt DC characters and has produced middling results.
Even if you loved Man of Steel and BvS. 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.
The building blocks are there for a great different set of superhero movies. Good actors and actresses and even directors. Zack Snyder is just not the guy that should be in charge of the biggest and most important films in the franchise. Especially with his track record now.
So far the petition has over 5,000 signatures. The goal is 7,500, which isn't going to even make Warner Bros. blink. The fact of the matter is Snyder isn't going anywhere. Warner Bros. is going to keep him around as long as he wants to be around to direct these DC movies and help develop them. You also have to realize that these movies aren't just made by Snyder, they are developed by a studio committee, so no matter who they brought in to direct, the movie would still basically turn out the same. They just wouldn't be as cool looking.
