The filmmaker's daughter died by suicide in March, prompting him to take a break from work and hire 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."

Superheroes have always been about doing the right thing in the hardest of circumstances. Now Zack Snyder, one of the biggest filmmakers in the genre and the director of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the upcoming Justice League, finds himself in just such a situation.

Snyder tells The Hollywood Reporter he is stepping away from Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star DC Comics superhero mega-movie that is in postproduction, in order to deal with the sudden death of his daughter. Snyder's wife, Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on Justice League, also is taking a break to focus on the healing of their family.

Stepping in to shepherd the movie through post and the shooting of some additional scenes will be Joss Whedon, the Avengers filmmaker and creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With Whedon's help, the movie is still on track for its Nov. 17 release date.

Snyder’s daughter, Autumn Snyder, died by suicide in March at age 20. Her death has been kept private, with only a small inner circle aware of what happened, even as the movie was put on a two-week break for the Snyders to deal with the immediate effects of the tragedy. Zack Snyder says he initially was eager to return to the film, which stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller.

Thats so incredibly sad :(

Very sad.

Interesting that one guy will be responsible for both the Avengers and Justice League movies now.

That is really strange, but Joss Whedon is amazing, so it'll be fine. Especially for just post-production.

Newest trailer from Comic-Con. I was really hoping they weren't going to hit at Superman returning, but it appears they have.

That seems fair given the unfortunate circumstances.

I also saw a trailer leaked from a convention, but it's pretty poor quality so I won't post it. You can find it if you're determined.

We have no idea who Alfred is talking to... Lanterns are mentioned in this trailer... could be a Lantern... could be Jon Jones aka Martain Manhunter... could be Shazam. Or it could be when Aquaman walks in the door... we won't know until Nov 17th.

I'll buy you a beer if Superman doesn't show up at the last second to save the day.

That's not fair... we know he's coming back. We just don't know when. And really, the team doesn't need saving... it has Aquaman... dude has the coolest hair flip ever

Joss's name has been removed from the material. Reddit says that Directors Guild of America Award (DGA) is extremely strict and wouldn't allow Joss to get a co-director title since he wasn't working on the film from the start.
