I’ve been waiting for The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Deadline, or The Wrap to weigh in on all of the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding Justice League, and today, The Wrap delivered.
As you know, Justice League went through a lot of changes after the backlash that Batman v Superman received. Production was scheduled to begin in April 2016, just a few weeks after Batman v Superman. The Wrap says that several Warner Bros. executives went to (then) President Greg Silverman, asking him to remove director Zack Snyder from Justice League. Silverman was “quite harsh on Zack”, but production was too far along and they were about to start rolling. The decision to keep Snyder on Justice League ultimately came from Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. DC Films President Jon Berg was sent to London to oversee the movie’s production.
