Fox 5’s entertainment reporter, Kevin McCarthy, caught up with the cast of Justice League at the press event in London this weekend. As a huge fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, McCarthy asked Ben Affleck what the difference was between working with director Zack Snyder and replacement director Joss Whedon.
“Zack cast this movie, he made the two movies prior, [Justice League] is very heavily informed by the work that went into it ahead of time — including design and script and everything else. So it’s Zack’s movie,” Affleck replied, before explaining that Snyder had to step away for personal reasons.
“We got lucky, we had [Joss Whedon] come in who kind of worked off Zack’s template, and also added his own flavor and his own stuff to it, and I think made the movie better,” Affleck added. “Although, I wouldn’t necessarily want to have two directors on every movie, I do think it was an interesting way of doing it.”
