“They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time,” Snyder said.
The Snyders are cornerstone players in Warner Bros. production of DC Comics films. He directed both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Man of Steel” and is serving as a producer on the additional films in the DC Universe, including last year’s “Suicide Squad” and the upcoming “Wonder Woman.”
“Justice League” is a critical entry in the slate of DC films, bringing together major superheroes like Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
Whedon, who directed the Marvel Comics ensemble films “The Avengers” and its sequel “Age of Ultron,” and is writing and directing “Batgirl” for Warner Bros., has been working with Snyder on “Justice League” for over a month. In addition to post-production work, Whedon will also shoot some additional scenes for the film.
