This just in.
The hotly anticipated drop by BossLogic and Marvel director Zack Snyder has been dramatically cancelled at the last minute by Nifty Gateway.
The only reason being given was – ‘IP Complications.’
We believe in this case that refers to Intellectual Property complications.

Unfortunately today’s @Bosslogic x Zack Snyder’s Justice League drop has been canceled due to IP complications.
We apologize to community members who were excited for this collaboration. We do however have a fantastic line up of artists today dropping some amazing art!

It sounds like the jostling for rights and intellectual property has begun. Marvel and DC have maybe started to realise how valuable this space is going to become and want to limit the amount of pieces that uses their artwork.
There is no mention of it being rescheduled yet with BossLogic and Zack Snyder being very quiet on social media.
Boss Logic is regularly commissioned by Marvel and DC to create art for their movie franchises. With millions of followers on social media, he is fast becoming one of the early pioneers of NFT artwork.
Zack Snyder has directed or produced a number of comic book and superhero films, including Man of Steel (2013), and its follow-ups, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017).
This drop was also going to tie in nicely with the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League that hits HBO Max this Thursday on March 18.
With the sudden announcement of this drop and then a retraction in just a small 48 hour window – it’s just another example of the pure chaos sweeping NFT right now.
