    Despite assembling the mightiest titans in the DC Extended Universe, Justice League failed to satisfy audiences or critics when it arrived in theaters in late 2017. And the experience behind the scenes was far from satisfying as well, with original director Zack Snyder stepping away from the film before production wrapped and Avengers architect Joss Whedon taking over for extensive re-shoots and re-edits. In the three years since Justice League came and went from multiplexes, stories of the on-set troubles have emerged from various sources.
