It’s a wild time to be concerned in a fanbase. Supporters of filmmakers like Zack Snyder or David Ayer are seeing unbelievable progress of their campaigns to get unreleased variations of flicks like Justice League and Suicide Squad launched. And individuals like Snyder and Ayer are lending their assist to the web efforts, blurring the road between filmmaker and fan relating to restoring creative integrity, normally within the identify of a superb trigger.
A related marketing campaign has sprung up round Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel in recent times, with followers clamoring for a sequel to the film (which ended on a big cliffhanger). The film’s star, Rosa Salazar, and its producer, Jon Landau, have inspired the fan base to make noise in order that Disney hears them. And their newest marketing campaign has a part to lift consciousness, whereas additionally benefitting an necessary charity.

So something is feasible, although Fox (which backed Alita) is now owned by Disney, and a sequel to Alita doubtless can be fairly costly.
However as long as there’s hope, the Alita Army will combat… and perform a little good for the world within the course of.
