Zack Snyder Exits ‘Justice League’ Due To Family Tragedy; Whedon To Finish Film

May 22, 2017


Heartbreaking news for the Snyder family, as it’s just been revealed that Zack and Deborah’s daughter has committed suicide and the two will be taking a break from work commitments to focus on mourning. Our condolences to the Snyder family.

The filmmaker’s daughter died by suicide in March, prompting him to take a break from work and Joss Whedon to finish the Warner Bros. superhero pic: “I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me.”

As trivial as the secondary news is, Avengers director Joss Whedon has been brought in to complete Justice League for Zack, which includes a block of reshoots (which were recently reported). Whedon had been in talks to make a Batgirl film for the studio.

Stepping in to shepherd the movie through post and the shooting of some additional scenes will be Joss Whedon, the Avengers filmmaker and creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With Whedon’s help, the movie is still on track for its Nov. 17 release date.

We’re hoping that fans can control themselves during this time of tragedy and transition.
