Last month, superstar comic book artist Rob Liefeld predicted the implosion of DC Comics, but this week, the Robster had a suggestion for how DC parent company Warner Bros could earn some goodwill from fans. Liefeld took to Twitter on Wednesday to call on Warner Bros to release the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

The Snyder Cut of Justice League is a version of the movie which preserves the purity of Zack Snyder's Vision. Snyder, who directed Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, and, initially, Justice League, had to leave the film due to a personal tragedy. Warner Bros brought on alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon to finish the film, promising to stay true to Snyder's vision. However, once in control, Whedon replaced all of Snyder's badass Superman scenes with scenes where Cyborg says booyah. The movie was ultimately a flop at the box office, reportedly losing money for Warner Bros, forcing DC's John Berg to pay the ultimate price, and leading to a full reboot of the DCEU as Worlds of DC.
However, many hardcore fans of Zack Snyder, who refer to themselves as "Snyderbronies," have been campaigning for Warner Bros to release Snyder's original cut of the movie, which Snyder himself has confirmed the existence of. And now, Rob Liefeld has joined the ranks of Snyderbronies in calling for this cut. Will the Deadpool creator's star power be enough to convince Warner Bros to do the right thing? We'll have to wait and see.
