“Justice League” is set to hit theaters later this year, and it was recently announced that director Zack Snyder has stepped away from the project to deal with a family tragedy. In Snyder’s absence, “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon has taken over directing duties for the reshoots.
When the switch was made it was said that Whedon would simply be carrying out Snyder’s vision to complete the film, but that still didn’t stop the rumors from flying.
Anytime reshoots are announced, the words “disaster” and “trainwreck” get thrown around, even though reshoots are actually pretty common in Hollywood. Joss Whedon decided to have a little fun with fans on Twitter by jokingly thanking Geoff Johns for asking him to reshoot the entire film.
Joss Whedon posted the following:
Thank you @geoffjohns for asking me to reshoot the entire Justice League movie, I'm honored

Geoff Johns then decided to take things to the next level when he joked that Spider-Man and Scooby Doo will be in the film.
Did I mention we're going to put Spider-Man and Scooby Doo in it? https://t.co/ayKbTrGPeW

“Justice League” is set to hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
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.
