Justice League Cast Talks Snyder's Departure

No Comments

In addition to their awesome Justice League cover, Empire Magazine’s latest issue featured a number of new pics from this November's DC Extended Universe flick. There was also an article in which cast members discussed their reactions to director Zack Snyder's unexpected departure.

Ben Affleck, who’s been more talkative about Justice League than he was about his previous DCEU outing, mentioned that the movie synthesizes two forms of storytelling. He added that it wouldn’t be an Avengers movie (something many fans feared) because Joss Whedon is a great director:

Justice League (CBM)

I didn’t sense that we were moving towards something that felt like The Avengers. Joss is more than just an Avengers director. He’s a good storyteller, full stop. In mid-stream, Joss got on, and part of what interested him was the puzzle aspect of it, fitting in pieces that weren’t there yet. He put the rest of the pieces in and gave it his own imprimatur. Joss came in and walked a very fine line between Zack’s sensibility, tone, and direction. We found a really fun and inspiring synthesis of their two forms of storytelling. I was so glad everyone showed up to work for Zack (via CBM).

Gal Gadot said that Snyder had a beautiful vision, and added that Whedon worked on the film for just a short time:

This is Zack Snyder’s movie. Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy, and knew exactly what he wanted to get. He has a beautiful vision.

On the other hand, Ezra Miller talked about how cast members learned that Snyder had to leave:

It’s a heroic act at its root. He called each and every one of us, and took the time to explain something that defies, in many ways, explanation. He told us exactly how it was going to go down, which was true to course. He fascinates and amazes and staggers me. Zack Snyder, ultimate [frick]ing legend. Forever.

Lastly, Jason Momoa, who’s a man of few words, had this to say:

I [frick]ing love Zack, man. I’d do anything for him.

Justice League will be released on November 17.
