The Wealth of Autumn Snyder
How rich was Autumn Snyder? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that was estimated T $300,000, mostly earned through the success of her family. She was studying at college and was working on a novel before her passing. Her wealth is also known to have been elevated by her father’s success, as Zack has a net worth which is estimated at $28 million.
Early Life and AdoptionAutumn was born in China, but very little information is available about her life there before she was adopted by Zack Snyder and Denise Weber. The two already had two children from their marriage before they went to China, later adopting Autumn and another girl named Willow. Zack’s marriage to Denise would eventually end in divorce, and he would have other relationships and other children as well.
Her adoptive father Zack is best known for his feature film debut in the remake of “Dawn of the Dead”, but his true popularity would come when he started making film adaptations of various comic book series. In 2006 he directed “300”, and go on to direct an adaptation of “Watchmen”. His popularity increased even further with the Superman film “Man of Steel” before directing various DC Extended Universe films, such as “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, and “Justice League”.
Charity Work, Cameos, and Other Endeavors
Autumn started to get noticed a lot by the media due to her various endeavors as compared to her other siblings. Autumn had developed an interest in writing at a young age, and would pursue it for many years. However, she developed a love for helping other people, and participated in a Crowd Rise campaign in 2014. The charity project was a two-week writing campaign helping raise money to provide homes for homeless women and their children; the project was in collaboration with a non-profit organization “The Elizabeth House”. Zack expressed how proud he was of her due to what she had done.Autumn had a brief cameo in the reboot of the Superman film entitled “Man of Steel”; her appearance was almost unnoticeable as her role there was more of a speaking role rather than a physical appearance. The day the scene was shot, she was on set with her father, right before the fight scene between Superman and General Zod. Autumn loved the arts and the entertainment industry, a passion she shared with her family. They were seen together watching films such as “Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”.
An Untimely Death
In 2017, Autumn was studying at Sarah Lawrence College, and was working on a sci-fi fantasy novel hoping to publish it and send any proceeds to charity. However, she was going through a lot of problems which would lead to her committing suicide. After the news hit her father, he took a two week break from working on the film “Justice League” to grieve with his family. This then led him to step down from working on the film, as he said that he had seven other children who needed him right now.
He mentioned in his statement that the demands of his work were tough and he was often buried in work, but the recent events made him realize that his work pales in comparison with the needs of his family. Due to these events, many executives were supportive of his decision, and Zack contacted director Joss Whedon who worked on “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” to step in and film additional scenes. According to reports, Zack wanted to complete her daughter’s novel, as it would’ve been good to see that even though Autumn passed, her character would go on to survive.
Many critics, actors, and people from the entertainment industry were sympathetic and supportive of Zack and his family after the tragic event of his daughter’s death. A year after his daughter’s death, he seemed to get back in stride, and resumed his duties as a part of the DC Extended Universe. He is known to be working as a producer for two upcoming DC films, including “Aquaman” which is set to be released in 2018, and “Wonder Woman 2” which is set for release in 2019.
According to reports, Autumn made it to the hospital before passing away there. No further details were shared about the events that transpired prior to her death on 20 March 2017.
