While Zack Snyder has listed several reasons for stepping away from Justice League back in 2017, chief among them was to grieve the loss of his daughter Autumn in March 2017. Since then, Snyder has made many attempts to raise money for charities fighting for suicide prevention. He and the #ReleasetheSnyderCut movement have already managed to raise upwards of $500,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). This is a phenomenal feat. Back at it again, Snyder is auctioning character photos from the #SnyderCut for the charity.
Yesterday, the writer/director took to Twitter to advertise the auctions for several character portraits, of Mera, Cyborg, Deathstroke, The Joker, and Batfleck from the Knightmare sequence of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, to benefit the AFSP.

Apparently, during the reshoots that took place in October last year, Snyder busted out a monochrome camera and snapped some shots of the characters who encompass the post-Apokoliptic world featured at the end of ZSJL. Among the character portraits being auctioned off, we’ll quickly recognize several shots that were released to promote the #SnyderCut. The most notable are the photos of Jared Leto’s Joker.
Take a look at some of the pics here:
The auctions are taking place right now. If you’d like to bid on one (or more) of the character portraits, you can click here and scroll down to view them all. Each photo is linked to their respective auction. The sale will close on April 22 at 12:01 PM PDT. These are phenomenal framed photos signed by Zack Snyder himself. If you’re a fan of Batfleck, or Snyder’s DC film universe, this is a must! Of course, you will also be contributing to the fight for suicide prevention. Or, if these photos are too expensive for you, but you still want to help out, you can still contribute directly to the AFSP here.
If you or someone you know is suffering from depression and/or has expressed thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. From personal experience, these people really can help.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is currently streaming on HBO Max in the US.
