Joss Whedon tapped as Zack Synder steps down from Justice League due to Family Tragedy


With pretty mixed emotions bringing you this but Zack Synder is reported to be stepping down from Justice League to spend time with his family in the wake of his daughter’s suicide.

While there is a lot of feelings about Synder’s take on the DCEU you can’t really say much when something like this happens. With Justice League currently in production for release later this year Joss Whedon has been tapped to take over production.

Whedon had recently been added to the DCEU creative team to direct Batgirl (which currently does not have many details). We don’t know what this means for the final product of Justice League or for Sydner’s role as the overseer of the entire DCEU (with Producer credits on Wonder Woman) but we will just have to watch over the next few weeks as more details emerge.

Remember, if you or anyone you know are having a hard time and need help Lifeline Australia are available 24x7x365 on 13 11 14 or via online chat on their website. If you are unsure, no one ever looks silly asking if someone is ok.

Wonder Woman will hit Australian cinemas on June 1st with Justice League holding it’s current November 16 release date.
