‘AVENGERS’ TO ‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’: JOSS WHEDON FILLS IN FOR A GRIEVING ZACK SNYDER

by

Due to a tragic loss in the family, Director Zack Snyder has decided to step out as Director of the upcoming ‘Justice League’ film. Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Zack and his wife/producer Deborah lost their 20yr old daughter, Autumn, to suicide in March. Snyder wanted to continue working on the film, hoping that it would help ease the pain stating:

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it,” Snyder told THR. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization …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.”

Warner Bros. Had originally suggested pushing back the films release date out of respect to Snyder. But Zack insisted that wasn’t necessary.

Joss Whedon who has linked to directing the upcoming ‘Batgirl’ film for DCEU was given the reigns to finish the upcoming ‘Justice League.’ In a recent interview,  Warner Bros. Production President Toby Emmerich assured fans that Snyder’s work would not be altered:

“We’re not introducing any new characters. It’s the same characters in some new scenes. He’s handing a baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack. I still believe that despite this tragedy, we’ll still end up with a great movie.”

Snyder’s colleagues in Hollywood have reached out to show their support:
