Boycotting Warner Bros. became a fad on Twitter as DC fans voiced their displeasure with the studio for various factors, including the departure of stars.

Over the years, Warner Bros has been one of Hollywood’s top companies, producing hit movies one after the other. However, the production company has been linked to several problems over the years.
Fans are angry about the studio’s actions on social media since there have been multiple recent examples of this. Right from dropping Henry Cavill as Superman.
Warner Brothers is the most idiotic 🎥 company of entertainment you literally had an actor who looks like and a can act like the most comic accurate Superman and you literally wasted him you can't make this up. #FireJamesGunn #RestoreTheSnyderVerse #BringBackZackSnyder pic.twitter.com/QQtRzrl83K— @Brandon Hero Guy Robinson (@ab0a2e8604b549f) December 15, 2022
Why Cavill was dropped as Superman by Warner Bros
Henry Cavill confirmed that he would be repeating his role as Superman. Cavil expressed that it was “not the easiest news” that he wouldn’t be appearing in the Superman movie that Guardians of the Galaxy director and DC Studios’ new co-chairman James Gunn is writing.
Gunn’s upcoming Superman movie will take the superhero differently and concentrate on his formative years. The announcement is pivotal for DC Studios and its parent firm Warner Brothers, which has been axing numerous projects to save expenses since it merged with Discovery, Inc.
Since the 2013 movie Man of Steel, Cavill has played Superman. His most recent appearance as the superhero was in a cameo in Black Adam earlier this year. He revealed he would return to portray Superman in October after leaving the lead role in the Netflix series The Witcher.
Cavill shared on Instagram on Wednesday that he had met with Gunn and his co-chair, Peter Safran, to receive the news.
Henry Cavill wrote,” I’ve just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran and it’s sad news, Everyone. I will, after all, not be returning as Superman. After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life.”
Warner Bros approved Cavill’s announcement that he would reprise his Superman role before Gunn and Safran started working at DC Studios on November 1.
Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman for DC Studios, announced on Tuesday that she would no longer be involved in the franchise’s third installment.
Fans got very angry with these decisions and demanded to boycott Warner Brothers.
Recently, Warner Bros. Discovery unveiled “Celebrating Every Story,” the first phase of a campaign to mark the studio’s 100th anniversary. They want to continue airing “Celebrating Every Story” until 2023, putting a focus on unique programming for the occasion.
But at this moment, it is pretty doubtful about the future of this occasion.
