Joss Whedon Officially Recognized as “Justice League” Co-Writer

Warner Bros. has revealed that Joss Whedon will officially receive a writing credit for the “Justice League” movie.

Confirmation on this credit was received via today’s release of the Warner Bros. 2017 Fall Movie Preview, in which Whedon is listed as a writer on the “Justice League” screenplay alongside Chris Terrio.

As you’ll recall, Zack Snyder stepped down from the film after a family tragedy, appointing Whedon to take over the final stages of the project’s post-production phase. Whether Whedon will receive any other type of credit for his work on the film is unknown at this point in time.

Here is the full list of credits released today:

Director: Zack Snyder
Writers: Story by Chris Terrio & Zack Snyder, Screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon
Based on characters from DC Entertainment, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Raymond Fisher, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller

“Justice League” will be released to theatres on November 17, 2017.

I like Zach Snyder, but he does tend to go a little too dark; snapping necks, shooting Jimmy Olsen in the head, etc… So if Joss tempers things and brings a lighter tone, so much the better. I think Justice League will be great. Rogue One and World War Z went through similar transitions and both turned out to be good movies. And of course, look at Wonder Woman, which gives Zach Snyder a shared writer’s credit.

I had no problem with any of the stuff you didn’t like. The one thing I for one don’t want is Justice League “light”. As for Wonder Women……it was basically a straight forward non controversial movie. Let’s hope that JL doesn’t fall into that same area.

I agree. I didn’t think Man of Steel was that controversial but it was clear that Dawn of Justice was terrible. He made the plot to complicated and with all the blown secret identities and the unnecessary carnage I just wanted to scream at Snyder. Zach Snyder did do some things right but mostly wrong. Besides it would be a great honor for him to lead two Superhero franchises to the promised land.

Man of Steel was an excellent film. Dawn of Justice was good, but IMO, too complicated for the average movie goer. I loved the film and have watched it many times over, even before the UE – I didn’t need the UE to explain things to me – if you paid attention during the movie everything was right there and made sense and it was a good story. Snyder respects his audience and trusts them to figure things out rather than treating them like children and spoon feeding them all of the information. I’m with redcape, I don’t want “light”,… Read more »

Good for Joss. It would have been also neat had he got a co-director credit. November can’t be here soon enough.

I’ll wait and see how this movie plays out before I give my opinion on it.
