Zack Snyder has announced that he will step down as director of the ‘Justice League’ movie to be with his family after his 20 year old daughter committed suicide. Joss Whedon has already been announced to step in and finish the movie in Zack’s absence. Snyder had already finished filming and a lot of post production work so the final product will still very much be a Zack Snyder movie. Our thoughts are with his family. 


@directedbyzacksnyder first of all I would like to thank you for putting into words what I have struggled with.

In case anyone doesn’t know, Justice League director, Zack Snyder, recently announced that he would be stepping down from the project due to a family tragedy.

Snyder only announced this because knowing the internet he knew that if he had simply said he was stepping down, loads of bloggers and clickbait websites would have gone on to write inaccurate articles about how “Hack Snyder ruins the DCEU once again”, or “WB finally washes its hand of Zack before he creates another disaster.”

Over the years it’s become incredibly clear that critics and bloggers have used their opinion on Snyder to become nothing but massive jerks.

And in doing so not only have these bloggers, websites posted incredibly hurtful stories about Zack but they’ve taken it to a personal level.

Just yesterday I got into a huge argument with a Critic, who I once had massive respect for, because she decided to make a terrible joke about how she was completely confident that Zack Snyder hated his mother.

Look I understand that Zack isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, hey I consider myself a fan and even I don’t love all of his work.

But please, please, can we stop with the massive personal attacks on this guy. Snyder is a kind man who every single person who has worked with him has praised to the high heavens for being a gentleman. And many actress​ have said that if it wasn’t for him they would have quit acting.

He’s not a misogynist, or some Right Wing Ayn Rand obsessed psychopath, or some edgelord who wants to ruin your childhood.

He’s just a guy who has feelings just like us and that often gets forgotten about.

Right now Snyder needs some time to make peace with a family tragedy and a kind word could a long way. And if you can’t do that feel free to say nothing at all. You have already proven your character.

Justice League is a movie I’ve been waiting for for my entire life so let me make one thing abundantly clear: it literally doesn’t fucking matter right now.

If you are glad Zack had to leave, if you are glad Whedon (who two weeks ago celebrated his own mother being dead) is taking over, if you are glad the movie is delayed, if you give a shit about a movie right now when a man who receives nothing but unjustified hate on a near constant basis has had to stop working out of intense emotional grief, you are literal fucking garbage.

I have already read multiple comments saying they’re glad his daughter is dead. I’ve read people insult him because this is “the first they’re hearing of it” so they don’t believe him. And everybody’s probably read people just celebrating the shift in general by now.

 I don’t subscribe to the idea that the internet is the worst of the worst, there are clearly worse people in the ‘real world’, but it’s really fucking hard to keep that belief when I see people celebrating a human being losing a fight that myself and millions of people have fought. It’s fucking disgusting.

Zack Snyder Steps Down From 'Justice League' to Deal With Family Tragedy
The filmmaker's daughter died by suicide in March, prompting him to take a break from work and Joss Whedon to finish the Warner Bros. superhero pic: "I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me."


Honestly who cares about Justice League RIGHT NOW. It could be directed by some guy named Leroy whose being paid a dime and a coupon for a slusie at a 7/11 for all I care

Zack lost his daughter. I can’t even imagine how his family must be hurting. 

This is about them and their family healing

Dceu actors have gone on bill maher and called him out on islamaphobia. Dceu actors have been public about their support for the water protectors in north dakota. Dceu actors are native american, jewish, black, hispanic, queer, etc. Dceu films have had consistent themes of being against xenophobia and judging people based on their looks, their past, or your perception of them.

Tell me again how the heck dceu fans are the ones that support trump? Because that just don’t add up.
