Joss Whedon Takes Over 'Justice League' As Zack Snyder Steps Down

Though Justice League is in post-production, the former Marvel movie mogul steps in to finish for Zack Snyder after his daughter's suicide. 

Autumn Snyder who was 20 years old, committed suicide in March, according to E! Online, and Snyder had felt that he wanted to bury himself in the work and work his way through it, but was not up to the task, which was why Joss Whedon was brought in.

He is quoted saying the following:

"The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all consuming. And in the last two months I’ve come to the realization…I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me... They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time."

Snyder never meant to make this death a public thing, but when it became too hard to continue, he knew he had to share why so that narratives wouldn't be created on the internet that weren't true.

He says he feels that the fans will get worried about the movie - but in all honesty, with the reviews that have come from Snyder's previous works, and Joss Whedon's effect on making Marvel movies a bang, we can't say we see any concern to be worried about DC's choice, or Justice League. This may also mean, considering that future projects are put on hold for Snyder, that maybe Whedon will be in control of the rest of the products coming from DC's film sector in the future.
