A couple of weeks ago the news was released that a group of fans were going to create a motion comic (animated comic) to continue in a certain way the story of “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”. A project that, under the name “The Dreamscapes of Justice League: A Motion Comic”, was raised as a kind of fan-fic but with which it was intended to raise funds for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Although the guys from LightCast were behind him, the project had the participation of Ray Porter (Darkseid) and Harry Lennix (Martian Manhunter) to provide the voices to the characters, thus giving it an official character.
After a few days of controversy, the cancellation of this project has finally been announced. The different drawings that were shown of the comic showed great similarities with the illustrations of artists such as Jim Lee, showing how they were tracing instead of creating something entirely new.
Reactions on Twitter have been such (even among those who initially supported this initiative) that the organizers have decided to cancel the project completely.
In a statement published through the LightCast account, it is explained that they have decided not to continue with this initiative by not anticipating “the dissatisfaction with the project by the general public, specific samples of selective harassment against team members, problems legal issues that we have had to deal with and the mistakes made on our part ”.
