After sharing some Justice League concept art and a brief Ben Affleck interview, Entertainment Weekly is back today with more from the Batman actor. This time he spoke about Zack Snyder having to step away from the project, and Joss Whedon coming in to finish the movie.
“It’s a little bit unorthodox,” Affleck admitted. “Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could’ve possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in.” Affleck went on to describe Justice League as “an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes. I’ve never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.”
Affleck said that reshoots have been part of every movie he’s worked on, even his own like Argo and Gone Baby Gone, and that they don’t mean there’s anything wrong with Justice League. Affleck seems more excited than ever to be part of the DC Extended Universe.
“This is a really nice time to work in DC. They’re hitting their stride. They’re getting it right. It’s starting to feel like it’s really working,” he concluded.
