Joss Whedon Was Already Working On Justice League

Earlier this week many DCEU fans were shocked to learn that a death in the family had made director Zack Snyder to understandably depart from post production of the upcoming Justice League movie. Upon that unfortunate news, Warner Brothers confirmed that Snyder left this movie to be finished by the capable hands of Avengers helmer, Joss Whedon. Well Variety has now learned that Whedon’s help may be a little more extensive than what was originally reported. The tabloid caught up with producer Charles Roven at the premiere of Wonder Woman yesterday and he confirmed that Whedon was already assisting with the production of Justice League before the Snyder family tragedy:

“We were saddened by the events that caused Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder to have to leave and turn the reins over to Joss Whedon. He was already working with us on some of the scenes for the additional photography that we’re gonna be doing shortly, and it was fortunate that Zack convinced him, and he agreed to step in and finish the movie, help Zack finish his vision, and we’re excited about that.”

Justice League opens in theaters 11/17/17
