Renewed calls for the release of the “Snyder cut” of 2017’s “Justice League” rang out on social media Sunday after the film’s cast and crew tweeted calls for the release of the fabled director’s cut.

On Sunday, “Wonder Woman” lead Gal Gadot tweeted “#ReleasetheSnyderCut.” The sentiment was retweeted by Snyder himself and repeated by fellow “Justice League” cast members Ben Affleck (who played Batman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) who shared a post featuring the hashtag on Instagram. Fisher even replaced his Twitter and Instagram bios with it.

“This ancient Amazonian can’t be wrong,” Snyder tweeted in response to Gadot. “Neither can Batman

Among the people to share the sentiment were former president of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson, screenwriter Damon Lindelof, filmmaker Scott Derrickson

Despite the push, no official announcement from Warner Bros. has been released.

In May 2017, Snyder stepped down as the film’s director after the loss of his daughter Autumn. In his stead, Joss Whedon was tasked with completing the film through reshoots and the addition of new scenes.

The $300-million film bombed at the box office

Despite the overwhelming push for the release of the cut, some fan reactions to the renewed interest in the extended cut of the film were mixed.
