The director who started the DC Extended Universe stepped away from 'Justice League' earlier this year after the death of his daughter.
The filmmaker recruited Joss Whedon to assist with the superhero mega-movie while he takes time to grieve.
The first official trailer for ‘Justice League’ made its way online, but the reaction has been mixed. The heroes that make up the Justice League (bar Superman, of course). While we’d seen footage of Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming superhero ensemble before, this was the first proper trailer unleashed, and it packed a huge amount into two-and-a-half minutes.
Zack Snyder has revealed a new clip from ‘Justice League’. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very small clip from what’s likely going to be an action-packed almost-debut for the character in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.

As he puts the finishing touches on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and preps to unleash chaos on Gotham, Snyder is helping Doritos end its mega-successful Super Bowl advertising campaign with a bang.
