*This Post Contains Small Spoilers For Justice League*
An interesting Justice League theory has surfaced and if true, it is a pretty bold move. During the film’s initial credits, a homeless man can be seen holding up a sign which reads “I tried”, just as the names of writer Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon appear on screen. Of course, because the internet is the internet, this has led many to believe that this was intentional, and it was Whedon’s way of saying he did the best he could with the material he was given.
This scene is probably just a coincidence. However, taking into account Whedon’s almost complete silence in talking about the film since its release, along with him liking a tweet that more or less bad mouthed the film’s villain, Steppenwolf, and it does seem possible the scene was intentional.

This may be Whedon’s way of separating himself from a film he wasn’t all that proud to have worked on. If true, I find this a bit unprofessional and out of character for Whedon. We will only know the true intent of the scene if Whedon or Terrio step forward and either confirm it was intentional or deny the scene had an underlying jab at the movie. Perhaps Whedon will clarify things on this issue in the coming days.
