Zack Snyder’s vision began what is now known as the DC Extended Universe from Man of Steel to Batman v Superman. However, earlier this year he departed the production of Justice League due to a family tragedy. Joss Whedon took the helm and ever since fans have debated whether the movie will be Snyder’s vision or Whedon’s vision. Ben Affleck commented on it saying that it was “a litle bit unorthodox” and “an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes” whilst assuring that, “I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.”
However, we can tell you what Snyder has said recently whilst talking to Wired about his latest short film. On whether he has had any involvement with Justice League since his departure Snyder said that it would be “unfair in a lot of ways” to be involved with the project again having taken such a long break. He continued on to say that:
“I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job, but I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.”
It’s clear that Snyder has placed his trust in Whedon to see the project through. It was also recently reported that Joss Whedon will get official writing credit for the movie. It seems like Justice League will be the equal work of two directors and it remains to be seen how that’ll turn out. In terms of Snyder’s future with the DCEU, there are no indications on where Snyder will go from here though he continues to root for the success of the movie, as do we all.
