Justice League director Zack Snyder has announced his departure from the movie on Monday, due to his daughter's suicide in March.

"In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it," says an emotional Snyder in an interview Monday in his office on the Warner Bros. lot, with Deborah sitting by his side. "The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I've come to the realization ... I've decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I'm having a hard time."

Joss Whedon will take over the post-production work on the movie, shooting additional scenes in England. 

If you're having suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
