A few months back, Zack Snyder had to leave the post-production of the Justice League because of personal reasons. Joss Whedon took the command of the movie after his departure. Now that could have been a good thing, Joss is a successful director. He’s the man behind Marvel’s The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. So the guy knows his comic book movies. But recently, Joss got a screenwriting credit for the Justice League. What does this mean? Well, according to the WGA (Writers Guild of America, West), to get a co-writing credit, you have to contribute in a MAJOR or SIGNIFICANT way to the script. Meaning, you can’t just touch up a few scenes, improvise the dialogues a little here and there and get the credit. There must be a massive contribution by the person in the script.
Now, this is a little upsetting. Even if Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot starrer BvS didn’t perform as well as expected at the box office, Justice League was still Zack Snyder’s baby. He along with Chris Terrio were right there from the start. Joss was involved to guide the post-production (so I think) but him making changes in the script is a different matter entirely.
There were also a lot of rumours that Joss was reshooting a few of the scenes including Amber Heard and Jason Momoa. And now after him making changes in the script, The Justice League isn’t going to be what it set out to be that’s for sure. But perhaps, Joss Whedon could be the guy that DCEU and WB needs. Who knows? Guess we’ll just have to wait till November to find out.
