As we all know by now, Joss Whedon was brought on board for Justice League‘s post-production process earlier this year, writing new scenes that will be shot during additional photography. After director Zack Snyder left due to a family tragedy, Whedon was set to oversee the reshoots and editing process.
Throughout the summer, there have been various reports about how extensive the reshoots are. Some say they’re minimal, while others say they’re drastically changing the movie. With that in mind, fans have wondered if Whedon would get any sort of official credit for his work. Turns out he is, but only as a writer.
Via Batman-News, Warner Bros. has sent out this year’s fall movie preview to the press, and it included tweaked credits for Justice League. The credits now include “Screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon.” Originally, Terrio was the only screenwriter credited for the movie. The rest of the credits remain the same; Whedon won’t be getting a director or producer credit.
Whedon’s writing on Justice League reportedly includes additional dialogue and “connective tissue” between big action sequences. However, the film is expected to maintain Snyder’s vision.
Justice League is scheduled to hit theaters November 17th. The fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds, Amber Heard, Joe Morton, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, and J.K. Simmons. Zack Snyder directs from a script by Chris Terrio.
