How Much Influence Will Joss Whedon Actually Have Over Justice League?
10 minutes ago
With Wonder Woman firmly situated in theaters and director has seen a cut of the film — otherwise his job is a pretty much impossible. Let’s say that Whedon sees a problem with the movie. Maybe a scene or two needs to be moved, dialogue needs to be cut, or a character arc needs to be tweaked. Does he have the power to fix it? Is it up to one of the producers? If anyone feels, for whatever reason, that any of these changes would impact Snyder’s vision, do they still make the change? Is the end goal to deliver Snyder’s vision or improve it as need be? Perhaps Snyder gave everyone the go ahead to do what they need to, but it’s a bit of a tightrope walk. No one wants to feel like their trampling on someone else’s hard work or compromising a director’s vision.
It’s important to remember that there’s a reason that Warner Bros. and DC Films chose Joss Whedon, out of all the directors in Hollywood, to see Justice League to the finish line. Whedon is the de facto expert (he might be the only expert) on making big-budget superhero team-up films, having written the book with The Avengers and then learning some important lessons in Avengers: Age of Ultron. If anyone can have the right insight into Justice League, it’s him. With that in mind, his advice must carry some amount of weight in the editing room. If he says there’s an issue, then there’s probably an issue, and one would imagine that the necessary steps would be taken. If they aren’t going to listen to his advice, then why have him on board in the first place? He’s not going to re-cut the entire movie to his liking, but very few movies are ever assembled as how they were originally envisioned.
Maybe Justice League is far enough along that it doesn’t need any extra input, but at the end of the day, Joss Whedon was asked to take over in order to help deliver a great movie. Zack Snyder set up all the pieces and now it’s the job of the rest of the team to make sure they go where they belong. We likely won’t have an answer to some of our bigger questions until we get closer to November. They have a tricky road ahead of them, but it’s sure going to be an interesting journey to follow. As if we needed any more reason to pay attention to Justice League.
