Joss Whedon Will Get A Little Credit For His 'Justice League' Work


When Joss Whedon first took over for Zack Snyder on Justice League, it was suggested he'd just be finishing up a few things and it would be no big deal. But $25M of reshoots sounds like a pretty big effin' deal, and we've heard that there have been some major tonal shifts, along with the excising of a couple of key characters. There are still some on the inside who say Whedon is just tweaking what Snyder had already completed, but it's clear that he's done some significant work on the film. Significant enough that he's going to be recognized for it.

While he won't be getting the co-director credit rumored some time back, Whedon will receive a co-writer credit. Makes sense from a logical perspective, but also from a business one. Whedon is the guy most closely associated with Marvel's Avengers movies, and having his name attached to Justice League is a pretty good rub.

Justice League opens November 17th, and below you can look at the full Warner Bros. preview with Whedon's name attached.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
