In a shocking turn of events Zack Synder and his wife and producer Deborah Snyder have left production on the 'Justice League' due to a family emergency, Joss Whedon will step in to finish the film.

Zack released this statement about taking the time off.
“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the 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.”
The studio is fully behind the move. “What they are going through is unimaginable, and my heart — our hearts — go out to them," says Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich.

Justice League' is still on track to make its Nov. 17 release date.
