Among the most recent DCEU films released, it seems that "Wonder Woman" is the only one that got it right regarding both box-office revenues and critical reception. Later this year, "Justice League" is hoping to replicate that success despite the controversies surrounding the film and the franchise. When director Zack Snyder stepped down during the last stretch of production, "Avengers" director Joss Whedon stepped up to replace him, spawning rumors of reshoots and many other changes to the film [VIDEO]. Despite this, Screen Rant reported that at least three people who have already seen the film's test screenings have positive reviews. It's uncertain as to just how much Whedon changed Snyder's vision of the film, but fans are already guaranteed a lot of show-stopping action, as promised by the two trailers that have already come out.

Now, some new details about the film have leaked, including those that indicate that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and Kiersey Clemons' Iris West have been left out of the final cut of the movie.

Kiersey Clemons excited to introduce Iris West

It looks like Kiersey Clemons will have to wait for "Flashpoint" before she formally introduces her character. CBR reported that her scenes in the upcoming "Justice League" film had been cut. Back in August, the 23-year old actress expressed her excitement in introducing her character, saying that despite initially not being interested in the superhero genre, she "can't wait to see the movie" and is "so happy" that she was introduced to the superhero film genre. Another unfortunate character that didn't make it to Joss Whedon's final cut of "Justice League" is Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

Lex Luthor not appearing in the upcoming film

Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor was last seen in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," where Ben Affleck's Batman branded him with the bat sign while he was in jail.

He was supposed to make an appearance in "Justice League," but Batman News reported that the upcoming film would not have any of Eisenberg's Lex Luthor scenes in it. Now whether or not Joss Whedon decided to cut out Eisenberg and Kiersey Clemons will remain a mystery to fans of the franchise.

Zack Synder decided not to return to the film

Following Zack Snyder's departure from "Justice League" due to family issues, the director refrained from returning to his role to lend a hand to Joss Whedon. He told Wired that it was "unfair in a lot of ways" for him to come back after taking a break. He shared that he believes "they’re doing an amazing job" at taking the film through its final stages. "Justice League" premieres on November 16.
