JusticeCon 2021 is officially slatted to kick off over the weekend of April 16 – 18. This years panelists are still in the process of being obtained but Director Zack Snyder has been confirmed to be at the event. Strictly online, this event will also be holding a costume contest similar to their inaugural convention last year. A full schedule is yet to be released.
The event is cohosted by Cole (responsible for public relations and the costume contest) , Nana (responsible for graphics, emails and more) and Meg (the “technology wizard”). All three women cofounded JusticeCon last year and are proud to represent the fandom a second time this year.
“Last year, after COVID hit and all the conventions for the year were cancelled, we wanted to do something for the fandom,” Cole said. “Before San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) was cancelled Nana, Meg and I had been working on putting on a screening of [‘Batman vs Superman’] during SDCC along with other efforts to raise awareness for the Snyder Cut.”
According to Cole, the trio wanted to bring awareness to the movement for the Snyders
“When we had to cancel the SDCC event we went back to the drawing board and our love of the Snyders, the fandom, the movement and conventions all combined into what we now call JusticeCon,” Cole said.
Like last year, this years JusticeCon will be raising funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), a voluntary health organization based in New York City, with a public policy office based in Washington, D.C., and local chapters in all 50 states in the United States. The organization’s stated mission is to “save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.” You can donate to the AFSP here.
Fans for “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” have been raising awareness and funds for suicide prevention in honor of Zack and Deborah Snyder for sometime, collecting over $500,000 in donations this past December alone. The Snyder’s left “Justice League” halfway through production following a family tragedy, when their daughter committed suicide. Fans have been providing support ever since.
