Zack Snyder’s fans are not toxic or crazy. They are protective. They have to be. The man has a good heart, is a genuinely nice guy and unproblematic. He’s just a comic book nerd, trying to give his interpretation of his favorite characters to us.
All he ever did was work hard to give us beautiful and deep movies and he gets more hate than directors that are child predators.
His only “crime” was making Superman more relatable and not having enough jokes for most people (not me. Superheroes aren’t supposed to be making wise cracks while people are dying feet away from them).
Zack Snyder fans may be a little hostile, but that’s because we’re not allowed to enjoy anything. We couldn’t even enjoy the hype for Wonder Woman because it was filled with backhanded compliments. “WW was so good and full of hope. Unlike BVS and that Hack Snyder.” And it’ll be the exact same discourse with Aquaman, Shazam, The Flash and every other DCEU film not directed by Zack, till the end of fucking time.
We’re not even allowed to post positivity about Zack without some jackass on Twitter quoting us with some smartass remark about how wrong we are.
Verifieds all over Twitter are constantly using their platform to drag Zack. All the comic book sites and podcasts, try to spin every single piece of news about DC negatively. And all because of a fucking movie.
It’s been over a year and people still can’t stop taking shots. If anybody’s toxic or unstable, it’s his haters. The fans are just tired of the non stop discourse and not being able to love what they love in peace. Not even for a day.
Yeah. We’re a little irked. No fuckin duh.
