Warner Bros. has revealed Joss Whedon will be receiving a writing credit on the upcoming superhero team-up epic Justice League.
Whedon’s credit was confirmed today in Warner Bros.’ 2017 Fall Movie Preview, which listed Whedon a writer on the screenplay alongside Chris Terrio. Whedon took over on the project to oversee additional photography on Zack Snyder’s Justice League and see the film through its post production process following Snyder’s exit from the project due to a family tragedy. Whether or not Whedon will receive a directors credit remains to be seen but the studio has at least confirmed that the director has done enough work on the script to receive a writer’s credit. You can see the full credits below.
