Director Zack Snyder has decided to give up "Justice League" after losing his daughter from an apparent suicide in March. The DC Comics movie is currently in its post-production; hence, Snyder hired joss whedon on board to continue what he started for the highly anticipated film slated to be released on November 17.

'I'm having a hard time.'

The "Justice League" director admitted that the death of his daughter, Autumn, was a huge setback that made him realize the importance of family more than his career. Snyder's credits include "300," "Watchmen," "Man of Steel" and "Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice."

The filmmaker said he was looking forward to going back to work to occupy his mind in hopes to forget the unfortunate turn of events in his family.

However, Snyder later realized that his wife and kids need him now more than ever.

He admitted the demands of his job as a director are "pretty intense" that consume not only his time but also his energy. Hence, Snyder has decided to take a breather from doing the film to spend more time with his wife and kids in this trying time.

Snyder added everyone in the family is having a hard time after his 20-year-old daughter took her life. It was also revealed that the "Justice League" director intended to keep his daughter's death a private matter, but because of his status, the story came out and was made public.

Snyder, out! Whedon, in!

Snyder wished nothing but the best for "Justice League." The director, however, acknowledged the fact that some fans are worried that his departure will significantly affect the film in terms of quality.

But despite that, he assured that fans could expect an "amazing" result in November.

As much as he would like to finish the production of the DC Comics movie, Snyder thought his presence is more needed at home than on the set. Snyder, who is a father of seven, said "Justice League" is a great movie, but at the end of the day, "it's just a movie."

Whedon, on the other hand, is known for directing "Avengers." He will wrap up the final stage of "Justice League" production on behalf of Snyder to hit the original release date. The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator has been working with Snyder for the past couple of months following the tragic death of the latter's daughter.

Reports stated the principal photography of DC's "Justice League" is expected to be finished in October. Also, the production team clarified it has no plans of changing the release date despite the sudden exit of Snyder.

"Justice League" stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and more.
