Zack Snyder Steps Down From Justice League

Reports are saying that Zack Snyder is stepping down from work on Justice League to give time for him and his family to grieve for his daughter who committed suicide back in March. Joss Whedon is set to step in and take care of the post-production for the film as well as the re-shoots that are scheduled to take place.

I was late to the story, but I have to say I’m generally impressed by the reactions to this news. I know there are people who have a problem with Snyder’s movie making style and constantly talk about him being a big reason why the DCEU hasn’t really worked yet. I’m just glad that people were able to recognize that this tragedy is a lot bigger than any movie could ever be. He’s a dude who has a family and he’s going through something terrible. It’s great to see the community he identifies with really rally around him and show support for him and his family. I hope he takes as much time as he needs and doesn’t try to come back to directing movies too soon. Family comes first and they need him right now. All the best wishes to him and his family. Damn…
