Ben Affleck Talks About What It's Like Having Two Directors For JUSTICE LEAGUE

In this latest interview, Ben Affleck reveals what it's been like having Joss Whedon step in as director for Zack Snyder's Justice League, the reshoot rumors, and the future of the DC Extended Universe!

The Justice League will be coming to the big screen for the first time in less than 100 days, and while Zack Snyder is no longer sitting in the director's chair, Joss Whedon will be helping making sure everything proceeds as planned. Of course, having a new director step in when you've been working with Zack Snyder for months can be weird, but according to Ben Affleck, Whedon is the perfect man for the job.

“It’s a little bit unorthodox,” Affleck told Entertainment Weekly. “Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could’ve possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in.” Affleck went on to say that Justice League is “an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes. I’ve never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.” While Whedon has taken on the role of director, it's Snyder who has final say on the film, according to the DGA's Creative Rights. It'll be interesting to see how that all comes together.

During the interview, Affleck also addressed the reshoot rumors surrounding the film, saying, "I’ve never worked on a movie that didn’t do reshoots. Argo, we did reshoots for a week and a half! Four days on Gone Baby Gone!” He even spoke about the current direction of the DC Extended Universe and how things are finally looking good for future DC films. "This is a really nice time to work in DC. They’re hitting their stride. They’re getting it right. It’s starting to feel like it’s really working.”
