"This ancient Amazonian can't be wrong", Snyder tweeted on Sunday, sharing Gadot's tweet.

Just an hour after Affleck's tweet, it has already been retweeted almost 20,000 times, with over 44,000 likes, while Gadot's tweet has 19,500 retweets and 65,400 likes.

Affleck simply tweeted #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, though Gadot and Fisher added new photos as well.

Snyder stepped away from the production in 2017 after the tragic death of his daughter, Autumn.

Actor Ben Affleck, who starred as Batman in Batman vs. "Justice League" went on to be a disappointment at the box office and seemed to have done little to woo fans.

On the two-year anniversary of Justice League's November 17, 2017 release, Wonder Woman actor Gal Gadot sent out a short and sweet photo tweet calling for Warner Bros.to release the infamously elusive Snyder cut, starting a chain reaction of tweets from her fellow stars and earning a retweet from Snyder himself.

Gadot was the first to tweet in support of the fan movement, posting a black and white behind the scenes shot from the movie using with the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.

The surprising tweet was addressed to "Mr Chairman", an apparent reference to North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un. "They must be beaten to death with a stick".

As for Gadot, she is still an active part of the DC Universe, getting ready to appear as Diana Prince for the fourth time on the big screen in "Wonder Woman 1984", set for release on June 5. It was initially unknown whether a Snyder version of the movie even existed, but in August "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa claimed he'd seen it and wrote on Instagram that it was "sick".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "no announcement of a release of a Snyder Cut is imminent". Someone also purchased a "Release the Snyder Cut" billboard in Times Square during New York Comic Con last October.

As Fisher notes, today was the two-year anniversary of the release of Justice League to theaters.

Gadot hasn't posted any sort of follow-up to her original two posts yet, so it remains to be seen if she has any specific intentions or hopes.

Snyder left the project midway during production due to a family tragedy and Joss Whedon, who was already attached as a screenwriter, was tasked to finish the film. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was the most critically acclaimed DC movie in years and its sequel, slated to be released next year, is one of the most awaited superhero films.
