Joss Whedon Doesn't Want Blame For Justice League, Won't Get Co-Director Credit

The best part of this story revolves around Henry Cavill's mustache.

Joss Whedon has spent months working on Justice League, after Zack Snyder stepped down after a family tragedy. The cost of Whedon's reshoots are approximately $25 million, while "additional photography", the preferred studio term, normally runs between $6 million and $10 million. 

While Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot aren't currently working on any other projects, Ezra Miller is filming the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Also filming another movie is Henry Cavill, who grew a mustache for Mission: Impossible 6, that Paramount won't allow him to shave, so it will have to be digitally removed in post-production by Warner Bros, a petty move which will cost Warner Bros.

While Whedon won't get a co-directing credit, presumably because the Director's Guild wouldn't allow it, he might get a producing credit or a screenplay credit, alongside "a fat paycheck", which is how Variety describes it. Tony Gilroy, who handled reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was given a screenwriting credit.

Warner Bros. is hoping these reshoots are more Rogue One, than Suicide Squad. Justice League is set to release on November 17, 2017, less than four months away.
