While Joss Whedon rewrote and re-shot a decent chunk of Justice League after Zack Snyder’s departure, he was only credited on the film as a writer instead of co-director. Interestingly, Whedon hasn’t been very vocal about the film. In fact, he hasn’t made so much as a tweet regarding it or how much he worked on it. He did, however, favorite a series of tweets criticizing the film and its villain, Steppenwolf.
In response to this, a new fan theory has now come out, suggesting that Whedon tried to apologize to fans for the production of the film. As you can see during the opening credits when Whedon’s name appears, there’s a homeless man who in the next scene holds up a sign. It reads:
Many fans have connected this with Whedon’s attempt to rework and finish the film, only to have failed in the process. Although it does seem out-of-place, it could very much be a plausibility. A petition for Zack Snyder’s cut of the film has surfaced, surpassing 100,000 signatures. The Director’s Cut is rumored to be 3 hours long, and would probably make things add up more, as did the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In Justice League…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne 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.
The film is currently in theaters everywhere.
