Joss Whedon Is Already 'A Big Part' Of The DCEU

Joss Whedon was probably one of the biggest names in Marvel Studios before he jumped ship to DC to work on a Batgirl movie. As fate would have it, Whedon has taken over Zack Snyder's directing duties for Justice League as well, and according to DC Film executive Jon Berg, Whedon is already a ‘big part' of the DCEU as well.

In an interview with Variety, Berg says:

"He's a big part already. We love him. He's a great partner, collaborator; we want him to be ensconced. We bring people by, have general meetings and talk about comics and their favorite superhero movies. With Joss, he saw the master board, and he saw a Batgirl title and he said, ‘You guys seriously want to do Batgirl?' And we said, ‘Absolutely.' He said, ‘That's my jam.'"

Though the reasons for Snyder's departure of the project are tragic, some fans have admitted to breathing a sigh of relief when it was announced that Whedon will be taking over. No offense to Snyder; he's a brilliant and ambitious visionary, but Whedon is still a better storyteller. Hopefully he can bring some of that Avengers magic to Justice League.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash -- it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League hits theaters Nov. 17.
