The two-director situation is unusual, but shouldn't have fans too anxious, Affleck said, diplomatically calling Justice League "an interesting product of two directors".

With Justice League still now undergoing its much-discussed reshoots, Ben Affleck has taken a quick break from production to chat with Entertainment Weekly about the DC blockbuster, commenting on Joss Whedon taking over directing duties from Zack Snyder and describing the superhero blockbuster as "an interesting product of two directors".

"We got really lucky that he stepped in", Affleck said, saying Whedon is "the best person we could've possibly found" to take over from Snyder.

Justice League has been going through reshoots much like any major blockbuster has in recent memory.

Seth Macy is IGN's weekend web producer and just wants to be your friend. Star Ben Affleck recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about how it has affected the film and what it has been like for him as an actor. Affleck, who has directed four films himself described the movie as "an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes".

Affleck also waved off rumors that the extensive reshoots indicated trouble with the project. On Argo, it was returned to the scenes for a week and a half. They're hitting their stride. So, how's that process worked out for the DCEU's Batman? But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions. Filmmaker Joss Whedon, who is also attached to a Batgirl film for the DCEU, is directing the additional photography for the sequel and is overseeing the completion of its post production following Snyder's family tragedy. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck. Indeed, filming began only a month after Batman v Superman hit theaters, and reports suggested that Warner Bros. was worrying that the dark and gritty tone of BvS may not be the best way forward for the DC Extended Universe-despite the fact that Justice League started filming under the assumption everyone would love BvS.
