JUSTICE LEAGUE: Intriguing New Details On The BTS Drama That Led To WB's "Frankenstein" DC Movie Emerge

We already know there was a lot of behind-the-scenes turmoil in the buildup to the release of Justice League, but now a new report sheds some more light on what was going on. Find out more after the jump.

A lot of the internal - and in Zack Snyder's case, very personal - problems faced by those involved with bringing Justice League to the screen have been well-documented, but now The Wrap has published a new report which brings to light some intriguing, and somewhat shocking, new details.

According to one insider - who referred to the film as a "Frankenstein project" - few at WB were actually happy with the finished film, and many believe that the decision not to push back the release date after Snyder was forced to depart due to a family tragedy was by far the biggest mistake.

According to one of The Wrap's sources, WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara and President Toby Emmerich wanted to preserve the bonuses they would be paid before the huge $85 billion dollar deal between Time Warner and AT&T, went through, and were worried that “if they pushed the movie, then their bonuses would have been pushed to the following year and they might not still be at the studio.”

If this is true, fans should probably stop arguing about which director was responsible for Justice League underperforming, because it sounds like the real culprit might be good, old fashioned corporate greed.
