Ever since Zack Snyder left Justice League and Joss Whedon had to take over, a lot of fans have been debating on how much of the movie Whedon had to change. With the movie coming out this week, producer Charles Roven gives us an idea on just how much Whedon actually changed.

Talking to The Washington Times, Roven explains:

"The goal is to make sure when you’re watching the movie, it all feels cohesive… That imprint that Joss had, some aspect of it is going to come out in the direction, but the actors are already pretty much down the road on their arcs. Let’s just say 80, 85 percent of the movie is what was originally shot. There’s only so much you can do with other 15, 20 percent of the movie."

When reshoots for the movie were still taking place, a lot of rumors were coming out that Whedon had to overhaul the whole script and that the reshoots were pretty expensive. Other reports say that the movie is still 100 percent Zack Snyder’s vision.

As it stands, Whedon only has a story credit for Justice League and Zack Snyder is the only credited director. Regardless of whose name is attached to the helm, I’m pretty sure fans just want a good Justice League movie. After Wonder Woman managed to exceed expectations at the box office, everyone expects Justice League to follow suit.
