Whedon to finish ‘Justice League’ for Snyder…

Justice League

Joss Whedon has stepped in to finish editing duties on Warner Bros.’/DC’s upcoming ‘Justice League‘ as Zack Snyder steps back because of a family tragedy…


Whedon, of course, helmed Marvel’s Avengers but has struck up a relationship with Warner Bros./DC resulting in the recent announcement that he will direct a Batgirl movie.


It is believed that as well as editing duties, Whedon may be shooting some extra scenes to help the movie’s flow – the possibly troubled screenplay has been the subject of many rumours and debate, bearing in mind it finished its main shoot so long ago.  Snyder had apparently planned to shoot some brief  additional material itself, but  this will now be handled by Joss in line with the apparent tone already established. However, at this point, the film remains on target for its 17th November release date.


“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it,” Zack Snyder told the Hollywood Reporter this week. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realisation … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”Snyder told the industry magazine that while he’d been aware of fans’ concerns about the movie, that hadn’t played into any decision to step away.“Here’s the thing, I never planned to make this public. I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take a break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They’ll do what they do. The truth is … I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”
Everyone at Impact sends the Snyder family our best wishes at this difficult time.
