The news that Zack Snyder left “Justice League” went viral on the internet in no time. Now, joss whedon is reportedly on board to direct the film.

Justice League” is currently in post-production, and set to release on November 17, 2017, in IMAX and DVD formats. Zack Snyder lost his 20-year-old daughter (Autumn) this weekend, and the news stunned everyone in a matter of minutes. Later on, it was announced that Joss Whedon would be stepping in to replace Snyder as a director of “Justice League.” In fact, Zack was the one who requested Joss Whedon to write the movie script and reshoot its scenes.

Producer Charles Roven said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that fans should not worry as post-production on “Justice League” is continued.

What Joss Whedon has to say?

While attending the “Wonder Woman” premiere, Joss Whedon stated that he was in talks with Zack Snyder to serve as screenplay writer; but he never expected that he would have to replace Snyder. It’s very unfortunate that Zack has lost his young daughter; no one can be a replacement of Autumn in his life.

Whedon is widely credited for writing the additional scenes for “Man of Steel” and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” They are all having a tough time, but production of “Justice League” will continue as usual. It is the fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe.

Written by Chris Terrio, “Justice League” stars Ben Affleck, Connie Nielsen, Ray Fisher, Henry Cavill, Jeremy Irons, Ciaran Hinds, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Ezra Miller, J. K. Simmons and Diana Lane.

The development

The film was announced in October 2014 with Zack on board to serve as a director and Terrio attached to write its story and dialogues.

Principal photography began in April 2016 and concluded in October 2016. As of May 22, 2017, Snyder called it quit on the project following the suicide of his daughter. Now, Joss Whedon will finish reshoots and marketing of “Justice League.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, more than twenty actors and actresses were auditioned for the leading superhero roles, including Michael Angarano, Joseph Cross, Minka Kelly, Scott Porter, Adrianna Palicki, and Max Thieriot.

Early projections reveal that “Justice League” will gross over $45 million in the United States and Canada in its opening weekend. The filmmaker hopes that it will earn a minimum of $950 million during its theoretical run. A sequel to “Justice League” was scheduled to be released on June 14, 2019, but is likely to delay as Zack Snyder has refused to continue with the film franchise.
