Batman V Superman Was SO DISAPPOINTING Fans Are Petitioning To Remove Zack Snyder As Director From The Justice League!
Despite its heroic box office earnings, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has fans divided — and NOT about which DC Comics hero they're rooting for!
Not everyone hated the superhero flick, but BvS was generally panned by the critics, which shook some fans' faith in director Zack Snyder!
