Darkseid actor Ray Porter posed for a photograph with #SellZSJLtoNetflix creator Skiiwalker Tha Jedi at SnyderCon, a magical fan moment that is both inspiring and uplifting. There is an electric charge when you meet your favorite celebrities. I know because I’ve experienced it numerous times. It never gets old. For more than a decade, I’ve met numerous Marvel and DC actors including Tom Holland, Jason Momoa, and Chloe Bennet.
Anyone who has been to conventions and gone through this can relate. There’s that intoxicating thrill when you part the curtains and see your favorite actor standing in front of you; it never gets old. As years pass, those people eventually leave us, and you never forget the few minutes you spent with them when they were alive.
After all, life is short. I had the opportunity to shake the late Stan Lee’s hands three times. The fingers that typed the origins of Spider-Man, the X-Men, and Daredevil. I think of that whenever I write an issue of Dreamwalker.
For YouTube personality Skiiwalker Tha Jedi, it must be surreal seeing Darkseid stand before him. Ray Porter did Darkseid’s voice and motion capture for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
To SnyderVerse fans, his Darkseid is as beloved as James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader is to Star Wars followers.

Better yet, Skiiwalker faced Darkseid dressed in the Black Superman outfit he wore in front of Snyder’s Stone Quarry to promote #SellZSJLtoNetflix.
As if on cue, #SellZSJLtoNetflix smashed one million tweets today.
Yes, of all days. Destiny? Perhaps. Without a doubt, the #FullCircle event will propel #SellZSJLtoNetflix further.
In a recent interview, Skiiwalker explained the roots of his massively successful movement:
We all just wanted a conclusion to the story we were enjoying. Witnessing all this pain and frustration in real time really started to weigh on me, especially seeing it from my own viewers and followers along with people that I collaborate with on a regular basis. I felt like I had to do something but I didn’t know what I could really do at that point. A day or so later while I was driving in my car, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen started randomly playing and it was almost surreal.
I was instantly transported back to the moment I first saw the teaser trailer for ZSJL and something in me just clicked. I returned home later that evening and watched all of the trailers in the order of release along with the ending of The Snyder Cut and I then said to myself “This cannot be the end”!

Certainly, it doesn’t have to be.
Indeed, all the hard work has resulted in one million tweets already.
